It is unusual, David, as most consultants who spec Meyer would never even mention Behringer in the same room. I would expect a Yamaha at the very least. Wonder who the consultant was?Certainly nothing wrong with the X32. Oops, read the article, there wasn't a consultant. Makes more sense now.
soundbrokers had some mina for sale, $3950 per box. The church in question has 9 mina on each side. $36,000 for main speakers only and $3000 for the mixer! That right there tells you that the mixer choice is not matched to the speaker choice!
Why does a mixer need to cost more than that? Maybe those speakers are over priced. Modern technology advances, mostly driven by consumer electronics and finally hitting a high volume price point have dramatically dropped the cost for decent sounding digital mixer. If big dog speakers enjoyed a similar economy of manufacturing scale maybe they wouldn't cost so much. You might need to spend more to satisfy eyeballs, but the ears are probably OK.JR
Agreed John Boy. Not to mention those cabinets should be able make any mixer sound good if properly deployed.
Sorry, Bob, have to disagree. These speakers will let you hear the flaws in a mixer/amplification chain, while other speakers can mask chain shortcomings with their own flaws which are generally of higher magnitude than mixer flaws. High resolution speakers don't automatically "make things sound good", in my experience; they allow you to hear the nuances of what you are feeding them so you can then achieve something that sounds good. I think you know that already, though.Actually haven't heard the Minas, but my X32's sound fantastic through multiple models of Meyer boxes.Good point about "properly deployed". That will mess things up, too. Also, a poor mix will sound bad through any system.
I submit you could probably connect a mackie 1202 or cheap peavey mixer to a system like that and it would sound good... the sound performance issue was pretty much settled by IC technology advances decades ago. The rubber meets the road for mixers in their feature sets.
True. To that, I would add reliability and user support.
