> or = to +3dB.

Hmmm.  You got me to thinking (that's dangerous)... in a system context, is cash voltage or power?

It can be either depending on how you use it.

Aaron -

You just got advice from Tim that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and many years of experience otherwise.  Read and heed.

5 or 6 years ago, Father Tim gave me this same sermon on the old LAB.  It was, and continues to be, a guiding principle for my little company. We will remain small and excellent, but we'll remain.  Thanks Tim, you've saved me a lot of stress!

Regarding consoles if you are looking at the 48ch size and an SC48 price point, seriously consider the Midas Pro2. The Midas pro range has several key benefits being all the consoles sound the same, link together nicely and show files are completely interchangeable.

I love the phrase "... to the next level." 
Great reply Tim... more so to the business side of the business than the gear side of the business.

I'd like to add:  There are some loose rules of thumb I've noticed seem to have commonality in success business'... concerning capital improvements, being:

Generally a capital improvement pencils out if that capital improvement will "pay for it'self" in 100 days of use by either increasing net or decreasing expenses same-same (or a combination of the two) as to off-set the capital purchase.

I'm not in the same situation as the OP but I'm still in awe of what Tim Wrote. That is like an epiphany wrapped in a condensed, compact package. I may never have the same question but I do have the answer. Very well done Tim M.

That was great advice.  The Dynacord as it sits is pretty powerful it has a lot of throw.  I have looked at the Cobra 4 as an upgrade in the near future.  Currently flying 3/6 XA per side and supplementing front fills works very well.  "Large Show"  Not the big National Touring acts there is a company down here who handles those well over my head right now.  I'm looking to get the 1 off gigs where regional/ semi national (1 hit wonders) stroll through town play a gig and head on.  Those are a tad bit easier to meet.  I do plan to cross rent for a while on these but at some point I need to make a decision on a purchase to lessen rental rates.  Currently that has looked like a console.  This is definitely not a Hey I'm gonna buy one next week deal it will take me a good time to decided.  I want to make the right decision, I may end up purchasing something completely different.
