Owners, Agents and Bands

Owner to Agent:

I want live music, but they have to fit into our 30 square foot stage.  No floor space for any lighting stands and must use our X-finity satellite radio speaker system.  I'll pay $500/night.

Agent to Band:

I've got a gig for you.  Pay is $300/night, bring your own lights and small PA.

Owner to Band:

What's all this stuff?  You're already too loud just tuning up.

Agent to himself:

Hee hee hee hee hee.

If it's a 70V don't boost the low bass...

JR

What will happen if we do??…….. Chris normally goes direct (bass) but is using  small back line this evening to help with that. Will I just need to keep kick low??

If it is a 70V system the speakers will all have small transformers on them to raise their impedance. Those transformers will saturate early with too much low frequency signal. Usually 70V systems have some LF rolloff built in.

I would seriously consider having the proprietor sign a waiver saying he's been informed of the possibility of damage to his system by using it for live music and absolving you of any responsibility whatsoever.

No way I'd hook into that.  Disaster waiting to happen.

Small Tannoy system as in a few stereo speakers scattered around the room?  Small PA speakers?  Ceiling speakers or little cubes?

RCA inputs should be consumer line level.  1V should drive them to whatever limits their home stereo or Radio Shack paging system can manage.

Is there any history of a band successfully using the "house PA"?

First gig was last night…..it is a franchise but I don't really want to mention what company. The GM called us personally today and said every bar in the franchise does things this way.  He was very anxious as tonight - like last night should be heaving. 90-120 minutes wait time and no room to breathe…..We were very professional and assured him we will do our best to work with him.

I would much rather use the alt outs to mirror LR - that way if I do need to supplement with my speakers, I'll be able to run both systems  from L and R faders. Problem was I just couldn't get any decent volume from the output when I tried it today. I got plenty from the mix out though. Does that sound right??
