Hey all - thanks for the suggestions and for mentioning OA Windsor.  Jim made me a couple of 30' cords; great craftsmanship!

Thanks again.

Saw Green Day last year touring with an analog Midas, not sure what model.

Eric Church was running another analog Midas last year, too.

Green Day had a brand-spanking-new API provided by VER, then another provided by 8th Day after Jason Vrobel moved to 8th Day.

We use the Milwaukee M12 LED floodlights which have a magnet base. The high AH batteries will last about an hour on full brightness and we can throw them up anywhere.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I considered battery powered, but with the length of our load-out times (around 3 hours), I'm thinking 12v may still be the only choice; I prefer battery for the convenience of moving the lights around where needed, but the short duration of time (due to the battery) may be limiting.

I honestly don't remember the last time I saw a Broadway tour with an analog console. Maybe Dolly Parton's 9 to 5, five or six years ago? Cadac J-Type, of course.
I was with Dolly as MON Engineer until the end of 2013, and it was Midas Pro9's at MON & FOH.

Edit:  DOH! You meant the play. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that was CADAC.

To the best of my knowledge, Dierks is on an S6L now. Lee Brice and Martina have been on Paragon P40's , however I think Lee Brice may have a Paragon II now as it is a little less finicky typically. Willie, Muse, and Boston are still running analog Midas.

Just so I am clear what you mean.

In option A: you utilize the internal crossover that the subwoofer has built in.

In option B: you utilize the crossover / HP filter that the main speaker has ( the DSR ).

If I had to make a guess, it would be that the biggest difference you notice may be because of the DSR's DSP. The woofer in the DSR will have a little bit of latency so that it properly aligns to the horn. Also, is the filter that the DSR uses a HP filter or is it actually a crossover filter? If it is a simple HP filter it likely doesn't have a steep slope, which means more low end energy below the knee and less phase shift due to the low pole count of the filter. This may mean that it melds better with the subs non defeatable internal crossover. If it is actually a crossover filter type slope, it may be rolling off too many lows too quickly to meld well with the subs and the added latency of the mains may be just right to make that hole in the spectrum even more noticeable ( more cancellation )

My guess would be that the internal crossover the subs have is better suited ( more ideal given its own processing ) to making any other given main speaker top work with it. Be it a less steep slope, different electrical crossover points, or added delay for the mains?

If I don't have matching tops and subs, I will tend to just run the tops full range and use external processing to get things where I need them. I often don't like how high many subs are crossed over at. I prefer to run them at 80hz or lower, so it is a little bit of listening and playing around till it just sounds right; Which in all honesty is usually the best route.

Yes Luke exactly.
Thank you for the detailed explanation.

I must say I get fantastic results running the PRX subs with the DSR's using the sub HP filters and although an external crossover might give me more control over the crossover points (and I do still have crossovers I could use).  I'm not sure I would want to go to that extra work and might not notice enough difference to make it worthwhile anyway.
One of the reasons I went the way of the powered system was to embrace the KISS. :-*

In my mind, the reason that most inexpensive Ethernet testers don't work well is because they typically only run a continuity test (i.e. testing whether the cable will pass D.C.), and there are lots of things you can do to a cable that will make it pass D.C. flawlessly but not pass a high frequency signal (like Ethernet or AES50) well (or at all).

Thx.   Do you have a recommendation for a good tester, a good value?

Anyone using LED flood lights to light up FOH and/or stage areas for load out (or load-in if early in the morning)?

I'm using a couple of these:
https://www.google.com/search?q=magnet+mount+LED+flood+lights+car&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwic5obxt5XbAhUEzVMKHeUxD8oQ_AUICygC&biw=1600&bih=757#imgrc=f9LsaxPbf-3-jM:

...though, these lights are incandescent. 

When I load-out, I usually use both of these on one side of my van and trailer; they do a fair job of illuminating the area, but I'm needing more light.  They have a fairly good horizontal coverage, but are not bright enough.

The lights I'm using plug into the cigarette lighters... I'm needing the same type, but in LED.

Anyone using LED lights for something like this?  Interested in what you are using.

Thanks.

The last time Muse came through here...which was 2014 or 15...they had a Midas analogue FOH console.

That may have changed (obviously...) on subsequent tours.

The support was on a Profile.

Cheers,
Tim
