Let's not forget to mention that sometimes the speakers are OK and actually aimed into the bleachers but have thick heavy banners hung up directly in front of each one!!

Hi Joel, no experience here from me, but is there a particular reason why you’re interested in these stands?  They look nearly identical to the very common Global Truss ST-132.  Alternatively, if I were buying something new today within that size/price bracket I’d be looking to the Duratruss offerings.  They use a far more consistent and reliable cranking mechanism over the winch and pulley that can jam/derail.  Just my thoughts!

Hi Jeff, Scott and Tim.

The main reason is that they go up to 14'. We do quite a few outdoor shows on semi trailer flatbeds (et al) that aren't usually wide enough to have the light truss on the trailer with the band, so the extra height would come in handy. At least that's been my thinking. What I hadn't considered was parts availability, which the Global stuff seems to have.

I'd looked at the Duratruss, but from what I can tell, you insert a pipe to get the full height out of them. What I haven't been able to find out is, even all the way down with the pipe fully extended, would they be too high to easily get the truss mounted on them. Might have to do more research on them.

Thanks guys.

The "problem" is that complicated topics don't have easy, simple answers.

There are a lot of "depends", and variables.

Where people become "better", is understanding all of the issues, NOT just one or two that they get "locked onto".

BTW, I totally agree that performers simply don't project anymore, they way they HAD to in the past.

My opinion is, If you want a group of people to hear what you have to say, SAY IT LOUD so as to address them.  Physical conditions being the exception.

If you whisper, I assume you don't have any confidence in what you are saying/performing, and trying to "hide".

"Bigger" typically means the lows go lower and the highs go higher,  possibly also better transient and phase response.  It's why even at the same SPL a great speaker sounds better than a cheap one.  SPL is only a basic comparison.

Caleb I understand what you are saying, but the point I made was not that I don’t know what “bigger” means, but rather the values for SPL, frequency and dispersion, so the OP or any reader can have a more specific idea.
“Bigger” to you, could be very “small” to us.

We own both VT4880 and SRX728 (and a couple of 828).  While similar they are not the same in voicing.  The 728 sounds "cheap" for lack of a better non-technical description.  There are cabinet resonances that create an audible artifact around 58Hz that mostly defies taming with EQ.   For most work that peak isn't a problem and sometimes it's welcomed (metal, hip hop).

The price of used 4880 is such that if I were buying for "value" and not concerned with matching up with other speaker systems I'd go with the 4880 over the next batch of 728s to be "found" at the warehouse in California (er, factory in Mexico).  The 728 offers the feature of being a big flat box that give it more utility but the 4880 just sounds better to me.

I wonder if the SRX818p (powered) also has the same artifacts you mention of the unpowered 728.

I like SDI for longer video runs.  Sdi to hdmi converters can, at times be problematic, as sdi generally supports a range of resolution and scan rate combos that the TVs on the other side of the converter don’t support.   Depending on your source this may or may not be an issue for you. If you are starting hdmi, convert to sdi for the run and back to hdmi, then it almost always works...

Regardless, I like the cheap sdi converters that monoprice sells.  They generally work in the applications I use them in, but plenty of people have also had bad experiences where they don’t work - most often I think this is due to an incomplete understanding of 3G sdi level A and level B.   Many of these cheaper converters can’t handle level B correctly in my experience and see it as a 1080i stream....

I am in the camp who doesn’t understand much about SDI. Educate me?

I think I want to do the HDMI to SDI for the long run (about 130’). I have been looking at all the less expensive converters on eBay and Amazon as well as at Monoprice.

The path I need would be
Source to Hdmi splitter
- 1 to original display
- 2 to SDI converter
SDI over 150’ coax
SDI to hdmi converter
To HDMI audio extractor
To HDMI switch

I worry about the number of boxes in the signal chain.
A HDMI to SDI converter with an HDMI through would be great as would a SDI to HDMI converter with extracted audio.

Still trying to keep the cost manageable what suggestions do all y’all have?

So, to conclude, I picked up a DCX2496 open box.

I don’t have a working windows laptop yet (my xp one needs a new cmos battery)so I can’t download either the editor or remote software. The Tribe site has no description of either app.

Will someone with experience with them comment on why to choose one or the other and what OS versions it works with?

How about this!

I built this a long time ago, and it's been many years since I've used it, but I seem to remember it did the trick.  You simply use an extra beltpack and take the input and output from the 4p XLR.  Then use the volume on the beltpack to control the "send" to the phone.  If your lucky enough to have a phone with a volume control on it, that will allow you to tweek your "return" level as needed.

Greetings everyone.

I'm looking to upgrade our rig this year from our JBL VRX932 rig to an RCF-HDL30a over 9006-AS. . . .

We are currently looking at an arrangement of 16 HDL-30a over 8 9006-AS. Through my research, i've heard nothing but good things regarding each of these boxes, especially for the price point.

Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences with these boxes? . . .

I have been to two live demos, so far. . .big stage at LDI with 2x8 hangs of HDL30 and a dozen 9006. Absolutely ripping system that sounded great. Liked it much better than the HDL-20. Sounds great without subs, as well. Rig was pushing 106dB at FOH with no discernible breakup or harshness.

Other demo was in Anaheim last week with 5 box hangs and 3x 9006 subs. Sounded just as good. Was pushing 96dB at about 200' back from the rig.

Also was on stage listening to TT45 and TT25 wedges with the subs just in front and they were impressive. Subs definitely articulated bass guitar and synths well. Those wedges are pretty incredible, as well.

Also had demo of the HDL6 in Anaheim. Was really impressed with sound and size/weight of the boxes. Worth checking out for corporate work since they will pole mount and fly. I can easily carry one in each hand. Impressive little box.
