Yet Another Questionable Install
« on: February 16, 2020, 02:40:39 pm »

At a local bar where a DJ  thinks he's a system installer.

Subs located over the dance floor. I guess the down angle helps direct the low end.  :D

Every square foot of floor space taken up by production gear is space not available to paying customers but yes the angle is counter productive.

Is it counter productive or just unnecessary?

That's probably where I'd put subs if I were designing for a dance hall. Keeps all the beer and feet off of them.
Obviously the angles aren't useful though.

The downward angle probably saves many hours of explanation time to well meaning staff and customers over the lifetime of the installation.

Sad and very very true.

Being flown does take up less much needed floor area. Keeps the drunk girls from falling off.

But the back to back facing subs made for some interesting low end  :o

As long as they were rigged correctly, I'd just smile and live with it.

In mid-80's, when I lived in Kansas City (KS), there was a large bar/club on the MO. side that had all its PA speakers (from what I recall - JBL Cabarate series) rigged in the ceiling (similar to the photo, but pointing straight down).  There was about 24 speakers (subs, mid/high, and full-range) spread across the entire bar.  Directly above the DJ booth (suspended from the ceiling) was a large wooden rack (custom made with installed cooling fans) that housed about 12 Crown PSA/SA2 amplifiers.  This was one of the best sounding "club" DJ systems I had ever heard.  To my knowledge, nothing ever fell from the ceiling.

I didn't think the Cabarate series cabinets were fly-able, but I think the bar made them to be so.

I once flew 4x USW in a horizontal line over a dance floor.  Unistrut, etc.  Worked a charm and saved a fair amount of floor space in cramped quarters.
