Hey guys,

I was B.S.ing with another old guy the other day and this came up, Whatever happened to the BGW Company?  They made some great Boat-Anchor Amps. I almost bought some but went with Crown MA's instead. And A.C. E. Composite speakers? Apogee? Others?....

mmmmm, maybe?  Though I don't think Music! would let a little thing like a products "heritage" get in the way of marketing.  The new Turbosound monitor range, complete with plastic end cheeks, a single handle that is almost impossible to use and house drivers is dubbed the "Flashline" range.  Right.

I could be wrong, but I don't think they'd put that big of a screen/display on a $5K desk.

To me it is like advertising a car that does 0-60 in 3.25 seconds and has a top speed of 185MPh but then posting a picture of an old rusty 1983 Ford Taurus. THAT is why I shared the ad here  - no other reason!
It could, pushed off a cliff, or dropped from a plane.
As Ivan would say, it's how you read the specifications.

It's probably time for a new Midas console, but if it's called "Heritage D" that might imply it's a digital replacement for the analog Heritage. The analog Heritage was a $80,000 console. I think it may be to get better traction in the touring market where the Heritage 3000 ruled than they have been able to get with the ProX. I would not expect it to be a sub $5,000 console. Or sub $20,000.

No Cable Left Behind: A Process For Avoiding System Problems From The Outset
Looking at a three-step strategy to deploy and manage cabling for live sound reinforcement to minimize confusion... and embarrassment.
By Michael Lawrence November 16, 2018


Aaaannd Bass? Can hear some bass? Oh my goodness, I never ran that direct out.

Weve all done it after loading in and setting up, we start our line check only to find that we completely forgot to run that microphone cable or power up that stage monitor. After irritating and embarrassing myself one too many times, I decided to come up with a strategy to avoid similar problems in the future.

What follows is an adaptation of the personal procedure that I follow during load-in and setup to ensure that nothing gets left behind. Note that this applies regardless of the size and scope of the event as well as my specific workflow for it.

On the macro level, its very simple: output gear gets placed, powered, and then patched. Then the input gear follows the same three steps...

I asked around and got the word that are they are simply "sold out" due to the recent discount campaign and that they can not produce as fast as required, hence the backorders...

Who would have thought that being popular could be a bad thing...

Their synthesizer venture is having the same problems, and they've also just got cheaper, sub 300/$300 for a minimoog clone is nuts.

Not sure what your budget is, but Danley's SM60F or SM80 might be a good fit.  It is a passive speaker so it will also require a power amp.  Possibly even 1 of these speakers would work in your situation.  They are very intelligible over long distances and can get quite loud.

I run 2 to 4 QSC K12s on stands venue dependent.  Any GOOD 12 box will do ya.  JBL PRX, Yamaha, RCF...  I use taller than normal stands.  Ultimate Support 110 BL gas lift.  The L in BL stands for leveling leg.  Uneven ground, stairs... no big deal.  I generally jack my K12s up high and tilt them down using the built in tilter. 

a decent name brand, LEGAL FREQUENCY low end wireless mic, preferable a stereo pair.  AT, Shure, Sennheiser, etc.. will do fine.

To me the auction trick is getting decent audio distribution to the crowd without making it unbearable for the people closest to the speakers.  Often that means running in a square configuration with the speakers each taking a quarter of the box.  Sound wise it will be softest in the middle... 

Near in mind that once you get the gear, you are going to have to work with it in a variety of rooms and see what works venue to venue.   Not to sound like a jerk... but maybe a better investment for you would be to hire a Sound guy to do this for you...  I get the desire for self-contained.  The piece that misses is having a set of ears in the crowd with an iPad and remotrpe setup to deal with the sound quality in real time.

So you basically use a mic speakers and an amp? Who makes the best amp and how much power do I need? Im looking for the gshock honda of sound gear. tough, long lasting, and not fancy. Im looking at eh Sure PGA31-TQG. Im one of the few who prefers a head set mic over a handheld. Im looking at four speakers in four corners of the room maybe 8 feet up pointer down. I finally have a weekend off and want to put priority on this.

What specific equipment are you using now, especially the loudspeakers and the microphone.

That said, what is your budget?

How large are the venues that you work at?  How many people, or how far is the fartherst coverage needed?

There is quite a range of equipment that can be recommended, you need to provide more info to try and narrow things down.

Best regards,

John

Im still just using two speakers on stands and want to have a system that can be loud for a huge crowd and lower for a small. Maybe I would be better off getting one for large and one for small crowds.
