And I don't think the lighted sign is supposed to be on over a blocked exit. The whole point of the sign is for folks to be able to find the way out if the room starts to fill up with smoke or the other lights are out, etc. Pointing folks to a blocked exit is very bad mojo.

Great looking rig Matt!!

I noticed that the monitor rack had all the connection at the top and the FOH rack looked like they are the bottom.  Has one worked out better than the other?

Not to pick on Matt or those performers at all, but I noticed an illuminated EXIT sign above the door behind the drum kit.  If someone asked me to setup in such a location, I would refuse to do the gig, and I would lose a customer over it if I had to.  As far as I know it is totally illegal to block such an exit, and even if it seemed safe, any kind of inspector could jump on it.  Am I right to think this way?

Depends.  Usually there are exit minimums, depending on the room capacity and the layout.  If the minimums are met even with a particular exit blocked, you might meet code.  Still not a good idea.

There is a Exit about 5' infront of the speaker stack... and a few more around the building.  The double doors leads to a Wrap around deck, which is ajoined by the other doors.

This venue is a place that no one that 15 or so locals hang out at (the band can pack a 500 person room 15 miles away, but can fill this 100 person venue).

Where on the floor are the 2 cans.  

Nice minimal footprint light rig, btw!



They are sitting behind the speakers.


Here is a "profile" shot of the light set-up.

Yeah, but the illuminated EXIT sign is still there over an exit that is effectively blocked and obstructed by trip hazards, some of which are owned by you.

It doesn't make that much of a difference between the top Vs bottom for rack plates for me. I built the racks at different times.

So, front or back? Preferences? Discussion?
