some of the comments to my last post. low ballers killing industry.what i was not understood is there a lot of so called sound companines taking jobs they have no businuess doing. i mean the guys who have a pair of powerd speakers a mackie mixer and try and do an outdoor event for a 1000 people and think they can do and fail. then the client says he charged me 200.00 why are you charging me 600.00 that customer has in thier mind 200.00 but they will pay 300.00 and its hard to tell them why you need to get 3 times the money . they dont understand and if you turn away that gig the are 10 more guys that will take it. what we need to do in this industry is get together start an assoc. that will make clients feel that were a real industry. when major artists book sound do you think they go to craigslist and look for a sound system no they call a known company like clair bros or maryland sound. and we should get the same treatment. i do educate my potenial clients about the diffrence between the dj doing sound and a sound company . most understand and will hire us. we need to do something about this or we will go the way and by the ways its also about the gear i think most of the gear out there is junk. you cant buy a system for 5000.00 and do an outdoor concert for 500 people the gear has not gotten much better than 20 years ago in the same price range a real wireless that sound good still costs around 1000.00 like and telex or hme cost in the early 90s and you cant compare a powerd speaker selling for 500.00 to an older model. back in the 90s a pair of good jbl speakers cost about 1200.00 for a pair and an amp cost about 700-800 dollars but it was a lot louder and with more punch than a 1000.00pair of powerd speakers. let get together and change this

I think this issue was thoroughly discussed in the previous thread. If you want to be taken seriously, capitalization, punctuation, and paragraph form matter.
How you perform with that equipment is what will decide if you remain in business. If you consistently provide your customers with what they want, you should do well. However, if you are always providing a poor service, you won't get much work - the market will sort itself out.
You know I read the thread on the big boys forum, and didn't make any comments because I understand lot of you have a lot at stake and "low ballers" are a serious threat to your business, and I saw you didn't get much sympathy there anyway; but bringing this thread to the lounge is like going into the kennel to complain about the dogs barking. You're now complaining directly to the $300 a night guys who might be taking business away from you.
