2 x RCF ART 722
1 x RCF ART 705AS
4 x RCF ART 710 - for monitors
1 sports bag of cables
1 sports bag of mics/DIs/ephemera
XR18 in Gator soft bag
Mic stand bag
Speaker stand bag

All fits in a Vauxhall Vectra hatchback with space for 1 passenger, plus a little more luggage if required.  12 units to transport at the other end.  As I'm manning/handling the kit, soft bags/cases save a load of weight, pack tighter and do the job.

For smaller jobs I'll remove the sub and a couple of tops/monitors.  At that point I can carry three passengers.

I was always intrigued by Flare Audio speakers which appeared to break the laws of physics.  18" subs only 513 x 513 x 261mm and 12" tops only 497 x 382 x 167mm.  Pure sorcery - a sub plus top system that would fit on the back seat of a small hatchback.  Unfortunately, I think the laws of physics were the winners in the end.  Their marketing was always vague, and the one conversation I had with one of their guys was bullshit city, and they're now focussing mainly on their magic titanium earplugs.  Clearly, if it appears too good to be true...

    Art Welter's custom monitors (smaller and sound better than K12's)Martin,

I'd suggest using higher power 8" or 10" co-axial drivers.

Still here, still safe, still watching the weather forecasts predicting hurricane Dorian will arrive here another day later each morning...
