There is no comparison between the GL2400 and the Carvin board.  Get the GL2400.

You are all over the place.  JBL line arrays or Carvin?  You should compare apples to apples.

None of those phone jockies have ever done a real tour, a real install, etc.  They most certainly haven't used Carvin, unless it was a comp deal.

I understand what you are experiencing.  I have the same "feelings" for Peavey.  Why?  Because Hartley (not a big machine) owns the company and runs it, the people that work there are great folks, etc.  I like the ideals.  They also have had some great ideas, as they have wrangled some of the industries best engineers at one time or another to develop no-brainer, cool solutions.

BUT, I am not a guy that has spec'd or used Peavey outside of it's intended blue-collar, weekend musician market.  When it comes to big dog events, I use the right stuff.  I would consider Carvin a few steps lower than Peavey for many reasons.  You get less bang for your buck with Carvin, as there is no local support.  You can take your Peavey stuff anywhere in the USA and find support for it somewhere.  The service is great.  The stuff lasts.  So, if you are going to look at the budget end of things look at Peavey.  Also consider Yorkville.

It may appear as though Im all over the place with the sound peices.

I started the thread because I hear so many people talk poorly of Carvin.   I wanted to learn why, when I havent had a bad experience.

I wouldnt use carvin in this facility nor would I use peavey.  

Still - I dont think they make bad equipment, just not as good as other.

I wouldn't start that one again if I were you!
