Is that a PA-900 as your desk under the glass?

Yes-and it still worked when I put it there a few years ago.

Please describe the room. Dimensions. Clap your hands in it; does it echo. and for how long?

Wow!  Carlsons and everything.  Can't remember seeing Heil use any of those.  I don't see the box of bullets (or piezos as the case may be) either.  Did those horns have enough highs?

I bought the Carlsons from a friend of mine who was a musician and got in a car wreck.

There are 4 of dual 3x5" piezos in there.

The HFs were 2" and 1".

 It has been a few decades, but there were enough highs for the jobs I did.

When we invent the time machine-I really want to go back to a couple of times.  First to some of my gigs and to the original Woodstock.

Just to see what they REALLY sounded like-as compared to what I am used to these days.

I really feel I would be disappointed.  But for the time-they did the job-and that is what is important.

Ivan..

When you get there, drop by and say hello.  My little camp was back by the
Merry Pranksters bus.

Then you ought to see my office and restroom at work.

My restroom walls are covered with photos of old PA systems-adds-festivals etc

In my office-there is one wall that has something like 110 vintage amplifiers-from the 70s and 80s

The pride of the collection is a Crest 8001, serial number 001.

I have a complete Shure vocal Master setup-including the slave amp and the rare tweeter banks

On another wall is lots of brochures, adds, catalogs etc from the 70s and 80s

Here is a photo of my desk (at least before I covered it up with "Stuff" that I am working on)

The Kustom red speakers have been HIGHLY HIGHLY modified/hotrodded and really rock now.  I have a 2400 watt/ch amp I drive them with.

Pretty decent computer speakers

I remember the vocal Masters! They were hot stuff back in their time.

Man, I wish I would've kept some of the stuff from back in the day. Stuff like an original Flame Linear 700B from an early Clair system, the first driver I ever smoked at a gig (a 15" Peavey black widow), etc.

Those computer speakers look like they can crank out the jams.

I had the chance to pick one up for $50 in Colorado Springs last week but didn't want to carry it back to Boston.

Of all the PA's I've been through the only three I cared about was my first, the Bogen and University horn system, my Vocal Master with 4ea. columns, and a Peavey something that never let me down, also with 4 columns.

I also ran powered monitors back in the 60's. They were called Fender Bandmasters.

All of the Bandmasters I am familiar with were separate heads and cabinets-so I would not call them "powered".

A twin however, could be called a powered monitor.

I've even seen people use them as the main PA.   So they had powered mains back in the 709's.

BTW, the first true powered speaker I remember was in the mid 70s and it was a floor wedge with a 50 watt amp.  I don't remember the brand, but Music Emporium sold them.  I will have to look through some of my catalogs from that era and see if I can find it.
