After talking to the guys at Applied, I think the solution is to keep the truss on the lifts, but keep the front (audience facing) leg up, and ballast the back leg. Applied thought a couple hundred pounds ought to be plenty to keep the whole thing from falling forward, and we can also likelylash it to the stage.
I would go with the 90lb base + ballast before I would do this. At the very least the structure has to stand on it's own, which the stands wouldn't do if someone bowled into the front base with one leg raised.
That seems like a really bad idea, I'm surprised that the Applied guys would suggest that. I've done hundreds of events with all four legs on the ground and never had anyone 'bowl into the lift.' Is the dancing at your events really that crowded and rowdy that you would consider this? I'd mark the front leg with some highly conspicuous colored tape, or put cones around it, or block it with the subs or do nothing at all before I'd consider not having all four legs on the ground.
That seems like a really bad idea,
Just back the whole truss up until the front of the leg is even with the front of the stage.
The stages we typically see are 16' deep and 24' wide. The legs on the L16M stick out 36". Rotating the lift 45 degrees they would still stick forward about 28". Either option would put our front lights shining straight down on the performers.
Also, while I don't think it would be much of a problem if they're high enough, the speakers would be slightly behind the front line mics.
Easy one: This is what you need: http://www.brisound.com.au/Retail_Catalogue/7524_item.htmlJust make sure the boom is attached to the innermost tube of the truss so that it's "resting" on the outermost one, that way it won't "sag".
Using a sidearm will move the center of gravity of the whole rig farther away from the tower, seriously derating the load capacity of the lift.Mac
Band lighting is all about side light and back light anyway. Mac
