I had a beat old band box truck about ten years ago that the roof of the box started leaking from snow.I got to a gig in the winter and I just thought it was frost on the sides of the amp rack.Once I started setting up the power amps started to thaw and water was running out of the rack.One of my Mackie 1400i's I had had chunk of ice in it.Dryed it out for a week and it worked for years.

He clearly favors a very wet sound.

It's a little hard to tell for sure, but that hose may actually be coiled with an over/under technique.

maybe they are looking for the flood of sound, similar to the wall of sound.

I have a sound system in Pella, IA that went through a flood. Water poured into the basement of a farmhouse through a sunken window. Three feet of water in the basement.

Mackie 1604vlz Mixer
8 channels of AudioTechnica 3000 wireless in SKB case
8 bodypacks with headsets
4 handheld
2 Distribution Amps
Bag of rehargeable batteries and chargers
12 AudioTechnica MB4000C SDC
 My Kaces 12 space mic bag
1 Crown PZM 30D
1 Crown PCC 160
System wiring  case with RS  SLM, Ebtech Swizz Army CT and a Horizon Stereo Di box
Toolbox with mic cables
12 Ultimate MC40b Mic stands in On Stage speaker stand bags

All got soaked by Iowa farmland water for 2 days. After the flood subsided, my friend who owned the house disassembled most of it and gace evrything a good rinsing. We lost two wireless handhelds and two SDCs. The wireless rack I disassembled two years later and dumped a lot of dirt out of it.
It now resides in the guys school. The direct box still shows signs of dirt,but does pass audio and I want a Radial anyway.
The mic slotfoam in the mic bag had to be replaced. Yeah Penn-Elcom.

I will be using all the above equipment at a gig this Memorial Day, and then later on this year at  It all still works pretty well.
