But the depressing thing is that the audiences here don't know or don't care.
In my opinion-there is nothing wrong with mixing brands in subs and tops.I hear people say all the time "Well so and so sub is "designed" to work the the same tops in the line".And I ask (I have yet to get a reply), other than physical size (looks) and possible stacking/locking or presets, how is ANY particular sub "designed" to work with particular tops???I can not imagine how you could do this.Maybe it is some "designing" that I am not aware of.In your case-it had to simply be a bad job of alignment.I fell it is just something people say-without thinking about it.I could be wrong-but just am not aware.
Other desk brands we don't use often here: Mackie and cheap ones like behringer, alto etc.Yamaha is not happening, except the older digital desks, like M7CL and LS9. The newer ones i haven't seen in the wild yet. The older analog PM series was also a rarity.Off topic but ok:Been to Chech republic on small tour around 2005: KV2 and a few Martin rigs. Maybe i was lucky.Went to Bosnia for two humanitarian tours around 2000. That was scary... Brought a nice d&b C4 rig. It only needed power...
It's not as simple as gear. It has more to do with high production values extending further down the user chain.If things haven't changed a lot in the last 20 years, I'd say both the local skill level was higher on average and folks don't mind paying for quality production as opposed to your alcohol vending venues who care only about paying off their boat.
I've read some interesting points of view. Hope you all did.Regarding the tops/subs thing: again, it was fine. Sounded great. Of course i don't mind what kind or brand the PA consists of, as long as it is decent and known. In my case it was two Meyer MSL tops, with 8 l' Acoustics dual 18's dual line, single endfire, outside. Nobody coul care less. But we are talking about SMALL sound reinforcent.But what Dick Rees said is what my gut feeling is, if i'm honest...
Speaking again for the german market, I have encountered few techs for proper venues and shops who have not gone through a multi-year apprenticeship. We all know that even being certified by some external educational facility is no guarantee in being any good in the field, but it does stop a lot of charlatans from getting far enough to be dangerous.
