Does it count as a hang if the bottom cabinet is sitting on the deck? Wouldn't it just be a stack then?

To clarify a bit what they have done there. One of the arrays is for vocals only. The band is in the other array.

But i still wonder about that bottom box aimed at the floor ;-)

Exactly - I think when they are flown for this show the trim height is 16m

At 3am I didn't even consider that a possibility. Makes sense.

But if the audience is large enough to require two hangs of MLA they might want to get the trim height up a bit. Those first few rows (or 20) must be getting blasted!

OR, looking at it again, maybe they're just not finished raising it! Lol

Who agrees to pay for something like this?  That's 36 more boxes plus amps and processing, not to mention motors and labor.  And for what, a marginally better better mix?  Seems like fiscal irresponsibility to me.

A couple of points ...
 
1) If you have two separate sources one for vocals and one for the band there is no interference between the two arrays theatre sound systems have been doing this for year

2) The MLA is not really a line array and because of the way it works the output from each of the transducers sums in a very constructive way. The system can achieve very precise coverage and SPL. If you have ever had a play with a MLA system (and I have been that fortunate) its like magic.

This is quite a big show, ... even more than 4 x SM80's would be required, and I suspect they have worked all that stuff out!
