It's Deep South.  From what I understand that's par for the course

Interesting.  Seems they made it all the way up to my neck of the woods for a festival earlier this month.  That explains the pile of QSC KW181 subs for a national artist.

And if they're making it to Maryland it says just how low their price is.  I wonder what shortcuts on staffing, equipment and safety it takes to work that cheap.

I don't know the band or the sound company from this scenario, but it wouldn't be that bad if they were subbing vocal inputs to the top box and band inputs to the bottom vertical boxes, or some other dual PA scenario. It's probably too much to assume that though. The "backbend" VRX setup from the older thread is hilarious! Maybe the audience is in a hot air balloon...

I wonder what happened to break out the handles on the top 3 boxes...

They don't look like any current RCF models, at least taking a quick look at RCF's site.
On the back it says "LA12" or something like that and made in China

I suspect they're phonies, then.  I don't think RCF makes anything (let alone complete speaker systems) in China.

A search for RCF and LA12 gets no hits for a speaker system.

Maybe they were hanging them by the handles cause they didn't buy the rigging?

Gee, adding a 4' section of truss to each end would have let them fly them right.

Probably broke when being hung by the handles.

How is that truss attached to the lifts?  I see a long spanset draped over the top but not secured to the lift forks in any apparent way.

You mean instead of a $900 fly bracket I could have gotten a ratchet strap at Harbor Freight.

Damn Mike Pyle upsells.
