Nothing to "hear" as we don't have a demo room.  There will be an addition to the Versarray line ... hummmmm?

Our summer NAMM trip was just shot down last week; for a gig (of course).  

I've been discussing the Versarray with the other guys in the shop, and there are a couple of "...Peavey?..." holdouts at this point.  If there were a rig in Missouri somewhere close where we could see it (or Illinois, bordering, etc.) in action, that might help a lot.  

That gig above is one of the shows we're bringing in stacks and racks for.  Twelve 850s and 8 850SBs for a outdoor reggae show that will likely have 2-3K in attendance tops, with a chance for 5k if it sells well.  

As a point of reference, would this show still be a six-box (over subs) Versarray gig, or would this be pushing it?

Our engineering firm has suggested we do 16 JBL VRX boxes and adequate subbage.  I can't find a Versarray to hear anywhere....(yeah, I am in St. Louis area too).  I can't in good faith order the Peavey system sight un"heard"...

I understand about buying things "ear unheard".  Very Happy  It sometimes works out OK, as long as you have information you trust.  Not for an item this pricey, though.

As an aside:

How are you going to array 16 VRX tops?  Unless I misunderstand and you're ordering this many to create multiple systems.  From what I've seen, you really can't array more than four together.  

By the way, how do the JBL VRXs sound to you?

Probably work fine ... but for Raggae you'll want a LOT of subs ... 4 per side or more

They are suggesting (4) 4 box hangs + VRX Sub on each hang..  L C | C R with the | being a center beam in the room.

I actually like the sound of them.  Very smooth, especially on vocals.  Thought I may be in the minority, I kinda like 12" + horn tonality.

I agree with that.  My own little personal rig that I take to shows that I work on the side (clubs, pet bands, etc.) uses 12"+horn tops as well.

Actually, the SB850s are going to be an experiment.  

We normally use Labsubs with our own rig (6 at the moment), and for bigger shows we've used them in a center ground stack.  I've always like them fine, but when we separate them (2 or 3 per side, etc.) they can have issues like any other subs.

It's just been awhile since we did a show with anything but the Labs, so it might make for an interesting change of pace... Rolling Eyes
