Ha!  That's my FL283 system.  Thanks for sharing.  Hadn't noticed.

Interesting system. Can you share your thoughts and experience with it? Maybe in a separate thread so this doesn’t derail completely.

I think I'd turn off the mic and tell the dork/douche/a-hole that he broke it beating on the speaker.
The amount of disrespect for other peoples stuff is mind-boggling, as is his assumption that the sound crew isn't frantically trying to fix the problem.

There's a quote from Jean Michel Jarre from his Destination Docklands concerts, concerts that had their fair share of problems. Now the weather experienced on the 2 shows was horrid with rain and high winds, plus the floating stage that was supposed to travel up/down the Thames had to say put.
But with all this when he introduces himself he takes it all in his stride and says "well we've had a few difficulties tonight but well, frogs like rain!". Now that's how a professional handles things.

Well except for the LCR guy but how does the house system suddenly not work in LCR when presumably it worked right up til the BE got in front of it?  Interesting hang in any case.

Interestingly, the replies by people with apparently "real" names seemed to have the most plausible explanations.

This wasn't an equipment/PA snafu but...years ago when we lived in san Diego, we went to see Van Halen play at the Sports Stadium down there when Sammy Hagar was playing with Eddie.
During the show, Eddie had one of his famous hissy fits and basically walked off stage.
After only a minute or 2 of everyone not quite knowing what to do, Sammy had a stage hand bring out a stool and an acoustic guitar and he sat down and started to sing and play some of his earlier stuff. It looked to me to be totally impromptu and the show didn't miss a beat.
Eddie came back on about 10 minutes later and the scheduled show continued without any more 'interruptions'.
I thought that was one of the most professional things I have ever seen...... from Sammy that is!!

If you want to start a new thread with questions I'd be happy to answer them.

Video shows singer hitting microphone against speakers and threatening to fight sound engineer. The comments explain what happened.

Why is he complaining that it is not feeding back?

Does anyone have a picture of this stage from the front? It looks weird. Why are the hangs SO LOW?

Actually, that would be just commupance if the PA came back on while he was beating on it and he got the full face feedback. >:(
