I will ask ONE MORE TIME (trying to keep it simple with just a single question)-what makes you think this system will fit when the other would not?

The Other system would have worked fine i am sure as i said the only reason im considering this system is because i can find out exactly how much it will cost me without having to contact the rental house about this. As it was Once said on this board "The K2 is the answer to the J-12" i was fortunate enough to have some one send me a sound vision screenshoot of the venue with a 12 box a side K2 rig and it looks pretty good to me

It just gets better and better.  Where is Alan Funt?

Popcorn and soft drinks are available in the lobby.... ;)

This started with a thread in the Big
boy section, was locked and re-posted in the Lounge.  It has now gained enough downward momentum to be headed for the Basement.

Beyond that...GEARSLUTZ.

It is an EDM show and at every show i've been in FOH the sound engineer more or less just stands/sits there  (no offence to anyone who's worked them)

Not exactly.

James...

Bless you for your even keel and good humor.  Enjoy your dreams and try not to go into debt for them.  If you ever raise enough money to do a real show, hire everything done for you.  Please don't try to DIY.

Good luck.  Write if you get work...

Having read all the posts here, I just want to say this:

The main thing I have learned over the years is to know when I am out of my depth and not to be afraid to ask for help. The most successful businessmen in the world learned to delegate very early on in their carreers.

We cannot all be experts at everything and networking is a wonderful resource available to us all allowing us to put each skill set in the right hands. 

Please do not let your pride prevent you from taking the appropriate steps to do this right.
 
That way, you can handle the lights, the sound experts can handle the sound and the show is a success…ta da..

Agreed.  I usually try to catch a nap-walk around to other stages etc.

Depending on the artist there is not usually much to do.

This will piss off many-but that aspect I REALLY enjoy about the EDM shows.  No set changes-no line checks every hour-no monitors to deal with (The DJs have their own level control and no mixing)

No running around trying to get gear back from bands that are trying to walk off with mics/stands/cables/dis etc.

Generally once the show starts, there is nothing to do-except keep an eye on the amps and limiters etc.

Why are you SO AFRAID to contact them?  They get calls all the time about gigs that they don't do.

It should not cost you anything-unless you are embarassed to do so----------

Ivan, et al...

Contacting a sound company about realizing your pet dreams runs the risk of injecting reality into the situation.  There is a very real danger of losing the hope inherent in dreams when the dreams are realized.  You're left with reality and there is often a very shocking gap between the two.

Yet one may take some satisfaction in the effort.  But in the end the dream is gone...

Edit:

Go to YouTube and find the movie "Shirley Valentine".  start at 1:00:00 and watch for 6 minutes.  Great treatment of dreams culminating with Tom Conti's line, "Dreams...they are never where you expect them to be."
