Apologies, I meant to include some of that info in the original post. I updated that now.

Receivers at the booth in the balcony so 10ft in the air behind a wooden/sheetrock wall. After that direct line of sight to the stage. (so over the congregation).

Cheaper units, think SLX/ULX or XSW2/EW100 300-600ea.

I don't think the long rf scan is possible as this is more of a send us a quote and we'll get 3 others and then go with whoever we want (is cheapest).

So if they simply want equipment pricing and will be getting multiple quotes, it should be up to the church to list the equipment they want and pass that around to the resellers. This way everyone is quoting the same thing. If the church doesn't know what they need, then it becomes a question of do you want to provide a system design, or two, or three, at no charge?

I realize not everyone is in a position to turn down a sale, but if I read your post correctly, the church simply wants cheap without much thought or desire given to really understanding the equipment and performance issues at hand, this is the type of inquiry I tend to steer towards Sweetwater / Full Compass / B&H Photo. In the end, the profit isn't worth the headache of a dissatisfied customer who was only concerned about price.

And yes; a pair of LPDA's appropriately deployed with low loss coax feeding a proper multi-coupler (antenna distributor) is the correct way to do this. This installation may also need some additional filtering if you really feel spectrum will be very congested and with a high noise floor.

Bummer, but  that xs is probably not worth fixing. You'd probably be better off to buy something newer & used.


I would go with another newer amp if the specs were similar...
I know that Berringer has a 4 channel amp but.........B...........
What I need: one four channel amp, 200 watt per channel @ 8 ohms.

The XS4300 fits the bill perfectly.  I do have a spare xs4300 that I bought several years ago.  I always bring a spare rack with two amps along with patch/jumper cables to every never know.

What is my duty to the client RF performance wise vs cost wise? I don't care about who's right, I just want what is 'best' (I know  a loose term) for the client.

Your ethical obligation is to inform your client (the "other company" or the church, whoever it may be), of the optimum method for achieving the desired performance, then paring down from there based on established budget and/or existing equipment. It may very well be that the budget will not allow for an optimum equipment deployment; in which case you should inform your client of the potential performance shortfalls. 

My argument is with the 600MHz sell off, the 470-608MHz range is being pretty squished and going to be full of interference in the next 5-10years. It's also on a military base... so plenty of nearby interference could be generated.

Both these may or may not be factors: 1) Have you checked the repack plan for this market, and 2) have you done any scans over time, or at least on Sunday mornings, for potential RFI from base operations?

It would be best if you knew someone with a few different mikes that you could try.  My inclination would be to go with an Audix OM-6/7, depending on how tight a polar pattern suits you.  Not as much mid-range boost as a Beta 58, but you need to be tight on the mic.

600w continuous, 1000w "program", are the ratings for that driver.

NU6000 - 1200w/ch into 8ohm, 2000w/ch into 4ohm.

The NU6000 is actually around 1,100-1,200 at 4 ohms, and needs a lot of wall current to do so.

I am thinking about some newer amps to replace the old iron, but great sounding ones i have. I have dual 18 mtl2b subs, also old but suit me. They have Eminence ohmega pro 18's rated at 800 w. each, paralled so 4 ohm per cab. I have been running my amps at 240 volts with short #10 wires to subs on each side, also have a spare on each side. This weekend i had an amp fail so the question. Anything out there thats 240 and can match the power i need? 120v can work but i am cabled for 240, not a problem to change but it keeps newbies from renting. I am wanting a four channel amp, two channels used, two for back ups. Have not had time to look around so i am sure someone here has already done the homework and i thank you for any replies. I could use two channel and buy four. All input would be great! Thanks,  Kevin.
I'd look at Powersoft or Linea.  If you're used to "big iron", short/thick cabling - many of the cheaper lightweight amps could leave you wanting, especially on longer-duration notes. 

Especially on subwoofers, various amps that all claim 1,600w at 4 ohms won't perform the same.

The wiring into the Sennheiser SK 100 G3 beltpack transmitter is quite odd, but, trust me, this is the correct wiring:

Tip & Sleeve - short together and connect to signal "minus" (-) or shield
Ring - connect to signal "plus" (+)

I know, I know.  I told you it was quite odd, but that is the correct way to do it!

Or course this is an "unbalanced" connection, so if you are using a balanced output to feed the SK 100 use an appropriate adapter or transfomer to "unbalance" the signal.


Thanks again!

So is working 10 hours straight before you get overtime.  But i digress...  :)
Nope. Federal law only requires overtime after 40 hours in a pay period, and a 30 minute meal break every shift. There's no laws that dictate how long you can work straight. I've done 18 hours straight for the City with no overtime. Then my boss gave me a couple extra days off that week so I wouldn't go into overtime.

I am looking for an inexpensive way to build or substitute something inexpensive to use as a leko fixture, primarily for front of stage use in small venues, with an audience of let's say, less than 300 people.

I noticed that there are LED video projectors available now that are really inexpensive.

What would be the possibility that this could work instead of a leko lamp to illuminate artists' faces? If not, then why not?

What would be the issues to consider? Adjusting the size of the beam, light intensity, diffusion, color temperature, etc.

Any LED or more likely, laser projector with enough output, that can be hung at any angle, with tight enough beam angle - will cost multiples more than a leko.   Look at the Chauvet DJ EVE50's as ultra-cheap option for shorter throws. 

To get lower in cost - Chauvet SlimParProW fixtures in quantity are very competitively priced, under $200 each.

Hi Dan,

Will it work - sort of?  Will it look good - no.  Can you not find something such as an Altman 360Q in your price range?  With the LED revolution they can be had for next to nothing these days!

Why won't a projector look good?  Trying to explain within the scope of my knowledge (which isn't great for projectors), the color temperature of the projector won't look anything close to the warm light of a halogen source, not to mention that most projectors can't do "black" really well - hence they tend to fail at replicating laser effects.  I also can't see how to use gel or diffusion with a projector...  Good luck!
