Steve,

Thanks.  That was a great review .... and for the systems that I have heard, reflects closely what I have found.

Very cool guys.

I couldn't of said it better myself. 

Just remember guys it's very difficult to make everyone happy when putting one of these on.  I did it in 2007 and received all kinds of comments about the venue not being the best it could and negative comments about how tests were conducted.  I say don't knock it until you tried it.

Well done Steve.  I think it was perfect.

My experience in hearing and using the same VRX rig was that it had tons of 1" horn Power and lacked midrange projection... Which is what I would expect from a mini 'array'. Directly my SLS 960 over 2x18 Sub sounds way more normal and usable. Plus it costs about as much as 1 VRX top.

It would be interesting to do SMAART on each rig from 20', 40', 60', 80', etc., and compare the speakers response over distance.

The VRX's hi/mid measured measured flat at 20'.  Have no clue what it would do farther out.

...

The VRX's hi/mid measured measured flat at 20'.  Have no clue what it would do farther out.

If it's flat at 20' (for a pseudo-point source) the highs will start to fall off 'more' the further out you go, but the rate is fairly slow, something like a couple db per 100ft at 10KHz. Sound absorption in air is function of temp & humidity, and is frequency dependent. 

I don't know how many VRX's were used, and how high they were flown, relative to 20', or how the array was tuned,  but if the floor was flat and the speakers ground stacked, and if you can ignore reflections, you should expect the highs to fall off at the back of the room.  Reflections will make response a lot more complicated.

Ever walk up to an outdoor concert?  What's the first thing you hear from far away, the highs or the lows?
