Our local PAC Concert Hall has the worst road show position, under the balc, far house left. The plaster is about 6' above standing head level, and both it and the flutter echo off the house right wall (under balcony) absolutely color the sound. For the mixerperson, though, it's a 15 second walk down the side aisle (continental seating) to be free of the balcony overhang. I'm not sure much matters, as the hall has such funky acoustic problems. Things sound very different about every 3 or 4 seats across the width; front to back is less of an issue until you get under the balcony.
Thanks for the responses so far. Could you tell me if the PA was stacked or if it was a line array? If it was an array, was it high enough or just the layout of the theater not good for the PA?I would like to build a venue in my area. I know some of the things I want to do. There are a lot of things that still need to be worked out. That is why I am asking all of you out there what your experiences have been out there. Hopefully I can avoid a lot of issues. Much work to do yet.
I used to work for MTW a many years back and the engineers would set their consoles behind the tech table for the tech period and hope and pray it worked out when they moved back to the box. It sort of worked. All of the rooms in that place are all kinds of messed up audio wise. I know its not an option for a one off or R&R, but if you have rehearsals, its not a bad way to go.
...once "water bags" filled the house....
If I can see the source I can hear it.
