Oh look, it's an acoustic set for a has been band in a coffee shop with 12 people staged in front of the camera for a manufacturer's promo.   ::)

Larger venue and larger system.

Are you convinced by this commercial that the Bose system is the best? Every manufacturer can trot out a similar marketing piece with testimonials by paid endorsers who claim their product is the best. How do you discern between anything when everybody claims theirs is the best? Sheesh....

Perhaps I am missing your sarcasm,

But I'd start discerning what's best by ignoring anything the marketing department has created....

We just did a show with them and Phil Carson (about 0:13 in the video) was highly complementary of our non-Bose rig, deployment, and crew.  Brian had a good mix, too and that helps *every* system shine. ;)

I found out because Phil mentioned his satisfaction to the promoter and venue management.  I don't think we do anything extraordinary in designing and deploying our systems so leads me to think that entertainers at all levels experience one off gigs where little or no thought is given to Today's Act in Today's Venue«.  I had a brief conversation with the "system guy" doing an arena show where the vertical coverage was FUBAR.  I asked how he arrived at the trim height and inter-box angles and his reply was "this is the way we always do it."  I heard the same rig outdoors a week later.  Again, covering the audience didn't seem to be a priority.  "We always do it this way".  How the BEs didn't make them fix it, I'll never know.

Perhaps the BE didn't notice.  Yeah, really.  Or did notice and just didn't care.

Or he realized that trying to get things fixed would go nowhere.

  I had a brief conversation with the "system guy" doing an arena show where the vertical coverage was FUBAR.  I asked how he arrived at the trim height and inter-box angles and his reply was "this is the way we always do it."  I heard the same rig outdoors a week later.  Again, covering the audience didn't seem to be a priority.  "We always do it this way".  How the BEs didn't make them fix it, I'll never know.
Or it could be that the BEs are so used to FUBAR systems, they think it is "normal"?

I have meet quite a few BEs that couldn't get out of a paper bag-much less mix a band. So I am sure many can't tell the difference.
