I have no problem with the VRX, not my favorite, but great for a lot of projects.I do have a problem with deploying them in such a ridiculous fashion.
A buddy of mine saw this the other day at a festival. I thought it was appropriate in this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I'm pretty sure this isn't true but, another local sound engineer told me that I could get 6 per side of the JBL VRX932LAP along with the VRX 18 subs or STX dual 18" and would be able to get as much coverage and output as I would with two-three EAW 850EFs per side? I'm thinking that's not true, I don't seem them going anywhere near as loud as the EAW 850EFs to keep up with an outdoor festival for 2,500 people at least (3 per side 850EF can do almost 4,000 I've been told by most in a medium sized area) Any thoughts on that? I just don't seem them doing that.

I have heard 4/side VRX932 with lots of subby, and it sounded like a small box being pushed very, very hard. This in a 5,000 capacity auditorium that was sold as floor-only (about 2000 seats) for a gospel show. I was very glad it wasn't my gig or rig.While I consider myself to be a KF850 n00b, I have no problem believing that horizontal coverage aside, 2 850s would simply stomp the 4 VRX, especially in the mids.
That's kinda what I figure. He's one of those "dj" turn in to a sound guy.. and we all know how they are, He's probably pushing the boxes so hard the can in fact get as loud as the 850 but whole lack any clarity/intelligibility at that point.. I would be nice however if someone steped up to the plate a made a modern box that had the same power has the EAW 850 but I guess everyone want's a sexy line array now any one with good volume is going to be starting at like $50-$75k imo.
Meh. Your Line Array is just another tool in the box. If you're just using it everywhere cos it's what's "Sexy," then you need to re-think your business model. Use the best took for the job, not what's sexy or what makes you the most money.-Ray "upgrading an 8 year client to 5/side VT4888 cos they're sexier than 725s" Aberle
My employer expects me to maximize revenue and most customers seem to prefer to give up more $$ for the sexy vertical thingy. Fine by me unless the choice is stupendously wrong (or impractical), and then we'll try to steer them to the conventional rigs and save them a few ducats, too.
