Eric,I aplaud you for looking for help.I also advise you to look into having a production company help you out, perhaps Scotts.If you really want to DIY this, then I would suggest the DXR/DSR or JBL SRX7/8 series. Plenty of talk/love for them here.
Thanks Nathan. I'm guessing Scott would be more than they could afford!
Thanks Nathan. I'm guessing Scott would be more than they could afford! There was a hockey board meeting tonight and we told them a range of $2000-$4000 is what they could expect. They cringed at those numbers, although its substantially less than a bid a few years back. Pretty conservative group of people! Scott are you familiar with Tri-State sound in La Crosse? I believe the owner used to work for JBL/Harmen. I stopped in to bounce ideas off of them but they made it seem like we shouldn't even attempt to do it on our own and that they should come look at it. I didn't appreciate their smug attitude! They were of no help unfortunately, although they showed me a cool video where they demo a Danley Jericho! Maybe for the local football field so I can here the game from my home 2 miles away! Those speakers you suggest do look nice. What are some reasons they get the love? Over sound/clarity? Build/components? Warrenty? Etc.....
Sorry I should have been really clear. My production company is in Cleveland OH.My other vocation has an office in Neenah and I happen to be in WI this week. If they were close by was going to offer to stop by.
While the board might cringe at those numbers they are still very low to have a professional installation done. Yes, I realize that it is a larger commitment from the board, but the quality received will be leaps and bounds better.I think that Tri-State Sound has your interests in mind, they, along with most of us here are running a business, yes, they need to make a profit. But we also genuienly want our customers to have the best possible in their price/market range and we consider a variety of considerations that you might (probably*) not be taking into account.Furthermore, I agree with their ascertation that most people, organizations, etc. don't have the expertise to SAFELY fly speakers and/or competently install them. Not that a DIY solution isn't possible or even that there are some out there that could pull it off easily or with some work to within 80% of what a paid install might bring. But there are considerations with having a sound company do it such as insurance, proper flying hardware, correct system setup, aiming, speaker selection (which is a whole topic), modeling, acoustic treatment, etc.With all that said,I recomended the Yamaha/JBL's because in your price range and with you wanting to do it yourself and without dimensions and drawings to properly design/suggest a SYSTEM of components I can really only suggest a few products that are within your price range that I feel perform above what you have already sought out.There are 10-50 threads floating around here from the past few years on the K12, DXR/DSR, 812,835, etc. Mi-level point and shoot boxes. They are all generally in the same vein and purity, but some are a bit better than others.Here is the most recent: Pole Mount ThreadI haven't heard the Yamaha stuff, but from thread's like Debbie's and others I know they are performing better/well compared to the QSC K12 which I do have, thus they get a recommendation from me.I have the JBL 835p which I consider to be an extremely well rounded, excellent speaker for its price. I know of no other that can perform as well for 1300 street price, though if you look you can find them for less.My suggestion is the 812p as Debbie and others have used them and I would trust them to perform well for your situation in a point and shoot configuration with little actual system design or forethought.Could you get better hiring a company? Probably. Would it be worth the extra $$? That's up to you and I'd wager you don't think it is worth it.My thoughts.
I have been checking out those threads.....the DSR & SRX series look great. As decent enough as our Thumps sounded, I know they have limitations & can see how these would be substantially better without breaking the bank.
I pointed out the issue of who's liable if they fall & hurt someone. They said that's not a problem & that they are prepared to take on the liability.
You live long enough you hear everything. Not sure if you care if these people like you or not but I would have shared my opinion of their ignorance, turned and walked out the door.You can't "take on" negligence with prior knowledge. Prior knowledge is a big concept in tort law. Once you are made aware of the risk and don't mitigate it you move into the realm of criminal negligence. It's called a "guilty mind" latin mens rea. (sidenote I really enjoy the law, it's fascinating).
