Me thinks we should have this moved to AC and Power ?

Maybe... but this is also a general interest topic.  If it gets into the minutia of stringer construction it will probably get moved.

Depends on the amount of light and the beams.  I have some of the Moons that are hitting the dance floor 100 watt halogens are not enough.  Compared with the 250 watt on the ADJ accu spot 250.  I work Small shows between the Bar Band rig but beneath the larger shows.  4 18 inch subs and tops.   I like to give the dance floor some lighting yes.  Band stage lighting and busy and Dance floor flashing lights yes.    Beams become visible with the haze and I use a hazer on each side of the stage depending on the room vents and where the air moves.  I also have a small cheap fog machine and use a heavy stay on the ground fog to help keep from setting off the fire alarms.  All have DMX control on the effects.

What you're doing is dangerous. Stop before someone gets hurt.

Do you ever get close to the limits on the system you have?


I also want to add not being arrogant, I would think most of us that have electrical chops have done some live tie in work.

I know many hotels just have load centers mounted on boards for distro but that doesn't make it right.

For small work I use a UL listed distro for an APC UPS.  It works great and has a breaker per outlet.  Find them on eBay all day long for $50.00  They are about the form factor of a snake stage end.

This could be solved easily if enough soundcos adopted the industri standard L.A.R.T.-aproach:

Embed a vial with a couple of spoonfulls of e.g. nitroglyserine in the mic.

Once the word starts to spread I believe all mics on all stages around the world will be treated with the most delicate care.

They may have cable internet with WiFi I could use. ... I need 15 min of NBC Sports.

Does the cable internet feed not also include digital TV? Every cable internet company I've dealt with sent both down the same wire. It would require a box from (and account with) the cable company to decode the digital TV signal, but possibly your client already has that on site.

So basically it's a penile inferiority compensation (thank you, Sigmund).
To paraphrase Dr. Freud, "Sometimes a microphone is just a microphone."  BTW did you know his middle name was Schlomo!
As per the PIC perhaps that explains the hospitality rider inclusion of large quantities of Magnum XL condoms.  I have to wonder if they actually blow them up and make balloon animals with them.

As far as the phantom power thing mentioned elsewhere, perhaps the dog shock collar (suitably blingulated) would be a better idea.  A bit of Arduina tweaking and perhaps a dmx controller would be needed for implementation.  Since this would involve dmx you could hand that off to the LD with a verbal cue to "Light em up, Sparky!"

Do you really want a lav? A mic that gets clipped to the wearers clothing? Or does he want to not have to hold a mic in his hands? In other words does he want to have his hands free? Do you already have head worn mics? Or have any experience with them? Has this been recommended to the preacher?

I havenít kept up with all of you posts so I donít know all of what you are dealing with. But from what I have read it sounds like the preacher may be the type to walk out in front of the speakers. There are multiple issues when you switch to a lav. Even if you have a well-tuned and well behaving sound system you will not get the same results with a lav as you will with a handheld mic.  And if you donít have a well-tuned and well behaving sound system and also know how to properly EQ a Lav you will have problems. 

Mic placement is an issue with a Lav. Also the relationship of the mouth of the preacher to the Lav is an issue. And if he is holding a book (usually a Bible) that will interact with the Lav and his mouth and if he looks down to read it while holding it at his chest it will be an issue. The type of clothing can also be an issue. Lavs for live sound are best put on the tie (so it is central to his head movement) and there is a trick to placement on a male as compared to a female.

I have had a lot of experience with Lavs and I have had excellent results with them, but I personally would prefer a head worn (usually ear worn mic) over a Lav. The head worn mic will usually remain at a consistent distance to the preacherís mouth (when fitted properly) giving a more consistent sound.

I did some work in one church where the preacher wanted to be hands free for the evening bible study he teaches. But for the Sunday preaching he has excellent mic technique, he knows how to play the mic in relation to how he is speaking. So I encouraged him to keep doing what he was doing for Sundays.

Would the 48v from phantom power, in a mic properly modified, be enough to make the muscles in the hand contract?   :o 
You see them make the pre-gesture... you mute the channel and hit the phantom switch and as Gomer Pyle would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!  Not today.  Now respectfully place the mic back on the stand."   >:(
Great idea.  But a bit hard to do with wireless.

Also you would have to put contact points that they would have to get across

And if you did it, they would try and THROW the mic, instead of just dropping it.

Oh well---------

What is a D9 EQ?

Where would you stream from?  Do you have public exhibition rights for the material you are going to display?

With a good Internet connection you may get away with it.

This is not an open to the public thing.
I am simply substituting a projector for a tv in a private room so people can see better.

I hope to find out more about the internet connection soon.
