Setting up gain structure outdoors
« on: July 23, 2008, 12:07:11 am »

I'm installing a new system in a high school stadium. I won't bother with too many specifics of the system (unless someone needs/requests them), I just have a question regarding gain structure and proper system setup.

What is the ideal method for setting gain structure? It differs so much based on what I've read/seen online.

Mixer: Biamp 801i
DSP: Rane 26z1
Amps: QSC PL380/34
Speakers: Community R6-51 (2) and R6-Basshorn (1, center)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Search the LAB.

Look through the Study Hall here at PSW.

Rane has at least one paper on this.

It is the same outdoors as indoors.

But keep in mind that one of the main purposes for getting everything properly "lined up" is to reduce the noise floor-you can't get any more out of system than what the amp/combination will allow.

Outdoors there is a point of diminishing returns.
