Small Line Array Shootout !
« on: February 03, 2009, 03:19:35 pm »

I along with others on PSW would love a small line array shootout.
JBL 4887a,EV xld281,QSC wideline 8, D&B t series or q series,Meyer Melodie, Nexo , etc       you get the idea! Can anyone in this forum actually make this happen.I figure if we all post a reply maybe somebody will see the interest and go ahead with this idea. I am willing to fly anywhere in the states to see these rigs in one place. Or is this just a dream!

Let's see what happens

Jack Alexander's shootout article in LSI magazine comes to mind.
With given manufacturers, I'd say it's highly unlikely.

Then again, what do I know

On Ales' behalf, I would like to offer up the ADR 2821 line array  with 618 subs. On my behalf, I can offer a location in central NJ- indoor until April, after which we can go outdoors if we wish.

We're in MD.  Any Saturday and Sunday at our shop would actually work fine for outdoor.  The other businesses in our building are closed on the weekends, and we could have the parking lot to ourselves..   We can supply the punch and cookies and power.. oh yeah, and a SBAL XYON7208XY compact rig with 7218SWX subs..

How about it people.  Actually scratch the Saturday part.. it would have to be a Sunday.. We always have shows Saturday.

Hi Everyone!
Things are starting to come together quick. I want to thank everybody and hope more join in and we can actually do this!

Randy Frierson in Florida has offered a location and the following gear: Meyer Melodie,Turbosound Flex, VTC EL 210, and maybe Geo S/8 and 12 rig.( I assume subs for the above?)

David Strebe in Maryland offered a location and the following gear:
SBAL XYON7208xy compact and 7218SWX subs

Jason Dermer in New Jersey offered a location and the following gear: ADR 2821 with 618 subs



Just a quick note : We will assume all rigs come with subs and processors .Later we can determine how many cabinets. Probably 4-6 top cabinets per side with the subs needed to complete the rig.


Thanks
Ron

What is the point of going to all this trouble, having people travel to get there, and making "line arrays" of 4 speakers? It may be true that a lot of smaller operators can't afford to deploy an array that is sized properly, but for comparison you really need arrays 7' or 8' tall at the minimum. If you want to know how they work in smaller arrays it is easy to turn some of them off, not so easy to know how they work in a real array when you only have 4.

Hate to be the one to bring the buzz kill, but do it right.
