I stand behind my comment-no matter the size of the venue.

They are simply not using the cabinets as intended, and no amount of "special sauce" will fix that.
Thanks Ivan

Thanks Ivan

To add to your worries, none of the pictures show how the speakers are mounted.  Was the factory frame used?  How was it attached to the ceiling?

I remember OP stating that it was signed off, that means any liability would be on the engineer that signed off the hang, hopefully he was a certified structural engineer.

What's the news on reconfiguring the system? Guaranteed you will get significant better results changing the crossover points and removing any eq that is current on the system that isn't in the manufacturers documents.

If you notice some weird things like some frequencies are completely missing or such come back here and ask, this is likely something you cannot fix with EQ and we will need to help you find a solution.

Also do yourself a favour and download all the sub articles that were released over the last few weeks on prosoundweb, there is so much good information in there you won't regret it.

In case you were wondering 2-4 point source speakers would have worked perfectly in that venue...

Yes to the frame. Yes to the qualified structural Engineer. They are wired, strapped and safety wired as well. In NZ all forms of building for homes, workplaces, auditoriums, caravans, anything are checked by the local councils and specialised building inspectors are sent around. Then you are checked for fire safety etc.

From rear. Bit hard to see on top without climbing a ladder. Don't want to do that with no-one else here.

Thanks. I did download the subwoofer articles and they are awesome.
I have contacted a mega-church in Auckland and a couple of sound guys with smaart are coming up to help setup in December. They are prepared to donated their time to help us. In the meantime, when I get a day free from work and all the other things, I will do as you say and feed in the manufacturer's settings.

You will be very glad you did.  I'm with Ivan on the strange way it was crossed over.  That just wasn't right and could never maximize the output that might be possible from the system.  Keep us informed.
