Seismic Audio LINE Array ? WOW Everybody wants a line array

Who wants a line array system ??? ;D Raise your hand !!! Cheep!  LOL these things are serious  :P
Not sure whay they call them line arrays when each box is 90x50 dispersion  mabee its because they look like a line array box and you can hang up to 8 per side. I saw them on E-bay when I was looking around and had to take a look. These things are super cheep so be ready for every bar band and dj out there to have a "line array" system now.

...oh no...

Well, like everything else, it's just a matter of time before someone (or a company) takes an idea and trivializes it to the lowest common denominator.  Look what happen to the U.S. college system; now, there's a glut of for-profit schools calling themselves "colleges" and pulling in unsuspecting people and "selling" them an education.  Appears SA is playing the same game with line arrays.

The specs are questionable (among other things)...

Condition     New    -- (does this need to be stated?)
Woofer    Two 15" Woofers (LoudSpeaker)   
Woofer Specs    Two High Powered 15 Inch Subwoofers per Cabinet  --(this was just stated in the entry above)
Coverage Pattern    90 x 50   -- (is this possible for a sub - from SA?)
Suspension / Mounting    High Intensity Aluminum Suspension Parts  -- (what is High Intensity Aluminum, and why is just the parts?)

"Predatory Marketing" comes to mind when I think of (or see) SA.

Even a turd can smell good.  Whoever they source their coaxial monitors from does a good job.  For under $500 a pair they do a good job. 

I have been posting barbs on their Facebook for a few weeks now about the LA.  The funny thing is the people that say "I need a pair of those" or the funnier (or sadder) "I wish I had the money"  or "I bet these will sound good" and I say why?  Because they are shaped like a huge line of speakers you heard that sounded good?

I have met bands that think playing through an array means they have arrived.  Any rational discussion tends to descend into the emotional.

I am not sure how selling people what they want is predatory.  All we can do is try and educate.

Funny, I looked at the link and got the distinct impression that "Line Array" was more the name of the series of speakers from SA than any actual function of physics, other than a more than slight physical resemblance.

I love how he takes the PEAK power and then doubles it.  Of course he has to use a calculator to do it-----------------

He makes me want to rush out and buy some-------------------NOT

Do all the concert systems "snap together"???????????????  Must be some new type of rigging I haven't seen.

I like how he compared it to the "JBL Versearray," whatever the hell that is, for $1399.

He seems drunk. lol.

So when he shows the phone to the camera, the image on the phone's screen is reversed. I can't figure out how he's pulling it off. *shrugs*

End of the video: "Maybe this will put JBL out of business. Cos the J in JBL stands for "junk." No offense to the guys who own JBL, but I'm a Seismic Audio guy now. Thanks a lot for putting out these Line Arrays."

"Snap" is typically not a word I want in the same sentence as the word "rigging."  Mark C.

He's on something way more psychotropic than alcohol.
