Yeah.. loudest PA wins. The problem here and probably the reason nobody has actually suggested any equipment yet is because the right system for a space like that in the video could look a lot like a full blown concert system.. hundreds of thousands of dollars in speakers flown and arrayed.. if you want all seats to hear the same thing that is. If it's just the judges you're appealing to then that's a whole different game.. a single ground stacked "cluster" would do the job.
I apologize for the confusion. Having been involved with the activity for quite some time, I tend to over look details that are important to anyone who is unfamiliar with the activity.It is correct that it is the judges I'm trying to appeal to. If you look at the photo called "SeatingChart" that I've attached to this post you'll see the "target" area. Typically the "clusters" are setup near the edge of the competition floor and then aimed at the judges (who sit anywhere inside the pink box). Everyone in the blurred out areas get what they get as far as audio quality goes.
Generally that is NOT the goal of a "sound system design".Deliberately excluding the large majority of the people who come to see you and support you is not good in my opinion.So if that is your goal-then here is a solution that will work very well.Simply move the speaker right up close to the judges. This way they will have a lot more of the direct sound of the speakers with much less "room", they will tighter punchier bass-clearer highs and so forth.If THEY are the main concern-then that is how to do it-simple.
Well it doesn't sound to me like you need anything earth shattering. Grab some better quality(JBL STX) cabs for better vocal clarity... maybe a dual 15 835 over a dual 18 828, some crown amps with built-in processing in a prewired rack with a patch panel on it so you just need 1 heavy gauge NL4 cable to each stack and a jumper from the subs to tops. Build/buy 2 caster boards for the stacks so they can just be rolled into place and connected. Done.
That setup sounds fantastic! Forgive me though, can you elaborate on how the NL4 cable works? I'm completely new to the NL4 connector. All I know about it is that you can send 2 signals down the one cable. So in my application, how would I prewire the rack patch panel to enable me to use a single cable to each stack?
That setup sounds fantastic!
Convention usually dictates separate L/R system deployment, but there is no reason for you to be tied to convention.Your goal is loud, clear, efficient (one 20 amp circuit) and fast deployment, all of which scream single point deployment to me.The few times I have had the opportunity to set up single point systems have been "ear openers".
