This -  the roof is deadly.

That thing would stand about 20 seconds in a good Kansas wind.  Yikes.

The PA?  Oy.  At least it only kills your sensibilities.

Looks like one of those rigs that would start to sound better as you unplugged every second cab!

Probably the same reason the PA is the way it is.

Check out that truck. And the lettering on that sign. Surely this can't be recent.

And don't call me Shirley ;)

Let's not even think about the roof (sail) on lifts.
The real problem here is the fact that the gig will probably go OK and, barring any heavy weather to challenge the roof, be considered a success. (sigh  ::))

The funny thing is that I don't see any cables going up to any of that.  Maybe it just hasn't been wired yet, but I usually try to power and test all my fixtures before the trusses go up.  This is bringing back terrible memories of that Genie Lift Stage Roof I dealt with back in November.  At least this one isn't set up in a sand pit!

There are yellow cable-like things running vertically up the Genie lifts, both upstage and downstage. I doubt it is braided polypropylene rope (a/k/a boating rope); at least I hope it isn't.

I see it now.  I think the yellow straps are just there for support (?), but it looks like all the light power is running along the downstage left lift - a whole bunch of orange extension cords!

Is that all EV stuff?
Yup. from 30 years ago.......
I ihave a catalog from 1987.......
SH1502ER "tops"
SH1800 "subs" or a variant thereof. 1800's had the cone showing, not the basket.
Peavey 1545 wedges.

Now, the subs in the catalog have no grill cloth, but that could be marketing for the catalog, or added later by the user.
30 years ago, I don't even remember which truck I was driving !

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.
