Not sure if this is legit or not, and obviously I would expect any response to be private and I would not share them with anyone...

As a comparison point in an ongoing financial discussion with my usual pool of "clients", I would like to get some example quotes for a mid-level community theater production of "Chicago"...

Saturday day set-up, Sunday all-day Q2Q and tech run, Mon-Wed eve tech/dress, Thu preview, then four weekends of Fri & Sat eve & Sun mat
18 actors all on wireless (Sennheiser EW100 or better, Countryman B3 or better)
Three-piece band (digital piano, upright bass, small drum kit; pro musicians)
Proper mixing (digital board, X32 or better, good dynamics/EQ, DCA/VCA cues, line-by-line mixing)
Source and program simple sound effects and pre/int/post-show music (QLab playback or whatever, perhaps cued by SM)
House has its own PA but must provide mixer and everything upstream
Probably just one person, assistance provided by production for busy parts (mics-on etc.)

Ballpark, what would you charge to come in and do that. No need for details, but please quote labor and gear separately.

To be clear, I won't be hiring any of you. I just need the numbers as ammunition in a discussion. I hope that's OK.

Reply by PM.

I guess I'm an expert.

Back in the 1990s, I had created a web page that described how to wire three-way switches. I referenced it on some Usenet (remember that?) newsgroups.

It would get several thousand hits a week.

(Sorry, the page no longer exists. There are plenty of others now, so no need to resurrect it.)

And, yes, I can properly wire a three-way switch without looking at a diagram. I could even add in a four-way switch if I needed to.

I built a display for grade school science fair demonstrating 3 and 4 way switches using knife switches (and low voltage.) 

BTW There are wrong ways that work.

Oh Granger....

He got a little tweaked that one of his youtube characters got more famous than he did. He keeps trying to come up with new stuff.....

Granger's gigs are usually fun or at least a good day at the office.

I think Earl Dibble needs to hook up with Chris Gaines for a "found in the vault" duet album... ;)

Back to the OP's question, no idea on value, BUT since so few were made, and likely used by very famous people, It could be sold to some sucker err, avid collector of R & R memorabilia.  Do some digging into the provenance.

I didn't get an exact number, but the musician I spoke with thought that Carl built "a couple of handfulls" of these systems.  My guess was a dozen or so.  Might be a few dozen, but from what I was told I'd be greatly surprised if there were more than 50 assembled and probably only a few have survived the march of time.

Dunno about using it or how safe it might not be, some 40 years later, but you're right, if provenance can be established it might well be worth something to a collector.

Your best bet would be a pair of DXR15's.

While the TS212 is a decent 12" top at a really good value, they are not in the same galaxy as the DXR15's.

With the DXR15's you will have more than double the output, the clarity will be greater for hearing vocals, and you can go without subs and still get respectable low end punch for kick and bass (not as good as dedicated subs of course, but still better than many bar bands get with inferior subs).

The other measure you already brought up.  The DXR15's have a 7 year warranty.

Good luck in your decision.

What are you guys using ? EZ-Up is too light for the wind in my area.   I'm doing Stand Up Paddle Races today. The canopy they provided is bomber.  6 sided aluminum legs, a center post (like EZ-Up but way beefier) and vents in the top.  ... and no brand name to be found...

Just a point to make here, the D-Contour is a compressor feature that is meant for recorded music. It reduces low frequencies as the volume gets higher, and vice versa. I consider this a feature not to be used in a live music setting. Having said that, I love the simple back panel & features that these boxes have. I use the high-pass filter frequently as my DSR's are specifically for monitor duty. YMMV

I am definitely impressed - DSR's for monitors only - wow. Which DSR's 12 or 15's for monitors? What do you then use for your FOH/Mains and side fills? obviously this will depend on the event?. thought it good to ask, so I can get a good idea of what I should be looking up to acquire, in this regard, when my business justifies an improved budget.

The obligatory topic swerve.

Has anyone heard of a Yamahiko piano pickup system?  Just got a rider speccing this and some quick googling makes it look to be made of unobtainium as a rental item.  Seems they are custom made in Japan and direct order from the maker. Anyone got a lead on a rental vendor in the US ?

Solotech has at least two that I know of. Just put them into a TV production in Toronto last week.
They might have more. Worth a call to the Vegas office to check inventory.
