Ahhh, that's the part I was missing. Thanks.

Are you using a transformer isolated splitter to pull off the bar mixer, or will a y-cable work fine?

Itís a simple Y-cable. No noise-issues so far (knock on wood).

Don't put flush mounted or recessed electrical outlets on the stage floor. They will always be in the wrong place. Put them on vertical surfaces, wall or stage front.

In addition to that, they get all sorts off rubbish in them and I would suspect that they may not be acceptable for fire and safety regs these days.

The performers most likely to spill also drink the stickiest beverages

For the love of God, include some spot lighting above the stage, with light switches that the performers can access.  There is nothing more annoying than loading in/out in low/no light, it triples my work time.

Should be work lights (4 foot LED) rather than spot lights.

And you invariably leave something behind.  :(

Osram has a good product designed specifically to be a stage work light:

I spec them as part of the theatrical lighting package on stages because curtains, technical equipment, and the stage lights themselves are all installed at the end of a project and usually get in the way of building lighting.

Nice light. Looking for a 12v version for the sides of my Sprinter van.
