Default In Ear Monitor Setup Question

My band is considering going to the In Ear Monitor setup to add backing tracks and a click to performances. We are a 5 piece group: Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar/Keys, Bass, Drums, Lead Vocals.

If I am understanding correctly, with most IEM systems, each transmitter puts out the same levels. So if the bass player wants more lead guitar and vocals coming through than I do as the drummer, we need separate transmitters.

My question is, those of you who are in groups that use IEMs, how many transmitters do you use in your band? I have talked to some friends locally and their bands have only bass and the drummer use IEMs so they only have one transmitter and they use the same levels. But I have also heard of other groups that use up to three. So I wanted DW forums take on this! Thanks everyone.
