Exactly, I am good friends with the GC and I am trying to break into a new business.

But does the CUSTOMER know that?

Exactly, I am good friends with the GC and I am trying to break into a new business. I've been installing home theaters and distributed home audio for about a year. Installing home audio is so much easier to plan and install than commercial applications
And that is not exactly the kind doctor I want.  Somebody who has been doing simple things for a short period of time-with no formal education-and now they want to into the operating room-and they are trying to learn tips from an internet forum.

No- I'll pass-I want somebody with  real world experience.

Yeah, the "I got a guy...." model.  Works like a champ  :o

Let's see: somebody else is going to hang the cabinets.  Somebody else is going to wire the system.  Looking for help on a Forum to design the system.  So all that leaves is collecting the money.

Sounds good to me-------------------------------------

That's OK.  Just plug in another one.  They're expendable.
Actually you are not that far from the truth,  I see mini-speaker plastic "Home theater in a box" systems installed far too often by amateurs or DIY owners. 
They evenly space the 5 speakers around the area and wonder why all they get out of 3 of them are weird echoes and background noises when the big game is on!

That is NOT what I took from your original post.

If the DJ is going to bring their own equipment-then why did you even mention it and talk about the "type" of DJ.

That is totally misleading to anybody even thinking about helping.

So now it is a TV sound system?

And don't forget there's not an owner/manager out there who at some point will want to connect the background music system to the visiting band or DJ's self-contained system.
-If it hasn't already been blown up by the after-hours staff then it will most definitely be at this point!

(I think it takes more $$$ to make a rig "bulletproof" then it does just for the speakers and stuff that people can actually see)

Alexander....

Don't think that all this is directed squarely at you.  Yours is just another in a looooong line of similar posts by well-meaning folks with an interest in sound who are asked by friends/acquaintances for free help and advice.  So folks in your position in up trapped in the middle between restauranteurs/club owners trying to implement some dream scheme and educated, working professionals being asked to give informed, professional opinions for free over the Nintershnet.

A lot of the grief attendant is just sort of "last-straw-ism".

You're not the first, and you won't be the last.........
