Hi all,I'm in the organising team of a midsized festival (1500pl) in Belgium, recently whe received new regulations that require us to redesign our audio setup. LAeq,60min ≤ 100 dB(A) is the new benchmark, currently our setup is very basic, woofers and speakers blasting the sound in the crowd.We want to keep our sound level in front of the stage @ LAeq,60min ≤ 100 dB(A) and keep the rest of the area more quiet to give the crowd the chance to rest and have a drink.We have had numoures offers al presenting us a Line-array system. It is quite an investment but is it worth the money? What is your opinion? is it enough to just keep the current speakers and raise them of the floor or do we realy need the line array to give the crowd a desent sound quality?

100dBA at exactly what distance? If it's at 1m in front of the speakers you already have way more speakers than you need.
Tijs, It looks to me that scaffolding would be a good thing for you to invest in. A proper line array is outrageously priced and unless you have the money now to buy it, and the money later to recoup the cost; scaffolding is the way to go. Also, you may want to consider the extra insurance costs of putting something up in the air. Here in the states, insurance and the associated costs hurt the bottom line big time. Don't get caught up in the hype. A good point source system can cover a lot of ground as well as a line array. Just my 2cents. Good luckscott
