Running wet

It is probably too late to get a set made for July 4, but I have found Undercover FS/W weather resistant covers to be very effective.

Can the vendor also supply rain covers for the above? Fitted covers are available. I hear good things about these:

Unless you plan on renting the same rig a lot, it wouldn't make sense for you to buy custom covers. So, that leaves tarps.

Running power directly into the cabinet creates multiple points of risk. One reason I try to use passive speakers outdoors (easier to protect amp racks under stages, for example).

For intermediate level protection look up Warp Brothers "Banana Bags". They come in various large shapes and sizes.

I got these and they fit perfect over my one over one stacks.

You can still play through them better than a tarp over the speaker.

No problem.
For clarity's sake:
My contract / job proposal starts out with:
Job Description:
*** **** ***** *********** (hereinafter referred to as the “Contractor”) will .........
The above identifies me as the Contractor.

After the details the text reads:
- The Contractor reserves the rite to power - down the system (at any time) due to changes in the weather that (in the Contractor’s judgment) creates an unsafe environment for the spectators and/or equipment. The Contractor will seek input from the onsite ******** Authorities or police detail to warrant such action.

Those plastic cover look very interesting. To anyone covering speakers to protect them from the rain don't pull the plastic tight around the speaker the plastic will rattle and the speakers will sound like they have a rubbing voice coil.
