Thanks again everyone. The gig was earlier today and in large part to information received here, it was the most successful yet. This is the 4th year I've done this gig and only my 8th live gig total. I bought equipment and have been learning "on the job" and it hasn't been pretty, but everyone is grateful to just have a professional system so I've been lucky.
Learning by doing is and effective teacher.I have something called Sussical The Musical coming up next week. Probably will have 12 to 18 wireless plus the usual PCC all trying to overcome the orchestra in a shallow pit.
I have had nothing but problems with lav mics. I know they are nice and unobtrusive, but boy do they want to feedback!I used them a few years ago in a wedding. The bride and groom wanted them for their vows (outside wedding with around 500 people). I got some decent volume out of them, but it was a real challenge. Also, when we were doing the rehearsal, I found that when they got close to one another, it caused feedback right away. I had to watch for the "Big Kiss" and drop the faders clean off before they got close

1) A DEQ 2496 would be greatly preferable to a DCX 2496 for this purpose. 2) A flat EQ (as displayed by an RTA) on a speaker system is not a starting point, its a disaster. 3) A 15 band EQ is not preferred for maximizing loudness in in speaker systems as the width of adjustment is much greater then is desirable. As a general tone shaper it can be OK.4) A parametric EQ, once you get used to it is simply a faster and easier way to get the results you desire. 5) A lot of us here didn't have access to advise or information much beyond what we could read in the Yamaha Sound Reenforcement Handbook. A lot of stuff we were told by others turned out to be just plain wrong. I hope you will integrate what you learn from this site with your real world experience. I know I have.
3) I don't think ANY EQ is a tool for increasing loudness. The approach I've heard described that makes sense to me is to mostly use an EQ to cut much more than to boost.

don't understand at all... I understand one might want some coloration but flat is supposed to "true" and from there one would shape things to taste. Am I missing something big here?
