I would guess they attached the speakers to the top plate of the truss using M10(?) screws into the fly points on the bottom of the speaker while on the ground, and then just tilted the whole assembly upright.

He has L-track parts with female threads. Yes, he bolts it up, then stands it up. He described it a while back in another thread.

The EAW cabinets are great, but are just out of my price range:)  I am making some money, and I'm saving it up for upgrades (i have a day job too), but its going to take a while.  Can anyone suggest any other cabinets to use in a 2-a-side configuration that might be a little more affordable?  I saw a guy near me use some QSC powered cabinets that were putting out some healthy sound...

This past weekend we brought out our older EV T252+/EAW SB850r system for a show in a park for about 1000 people. It is very similar to what you have, dual 15" top cabs with a 1.4" 60/40 exit horn trapezoid cabinets.  The subs are dual 18" 2000 watt RCF P300/P400.  We set it up with (2) EV/EAW cabs per side and it sounds great for DJ/Jazz/Blues at a moderate level.  It should be noted that we are using all Crown MacroTechs on this system.  This little system is great for what it does, but I won't do anything bigger then what we did this weekend.

Best advice is figure out where you reasonably want to go show wise and create a reasonable upgrade plan to get there.

Small world.  My concert rig is 4xT-251+'s over 4x SB-180's all driven with MacroTechs.  Great fidelity with the nice, open EV sound.  As you say, great for jazz, 'grass and power acoustic performance.  Good SPL out to 100' for street fests where you have 2 story buildings on either side.  I'd hit peaks up to 103dBA 75' out for kickin' R&B, but I'd need another 10dB headroom for rock.

I don't do rock...

Dick, sounds like a great system.  We are sending the (4) T252s and (4) SB850s to a 4th of July show in Kentucky.  We have done this one for several years and in the time that we have we have paid for the T252s and the SB850s that go with it.  Like I said this system doesn't work all of the time, only 4 or 5 times a year, however, it has paid for itself several times over.

We do some good sized Rock shows, 3,000 - 6,000 people, but depending on where we are it is the EAW KF850/SB1000 system or the EAW KF730/SB1000 system.  It's all about the right tool for the job.

Hey Rob, do you have any pictures of this setup? I've got the same cabs and have been trying to figure the best way to get them higher. Feel free to PM me.

Thanks, Mike

Here is a closeup. I have since added 4" of chain to the hang so I can launch em off cable cases.
