Anyone here of TVI Audio line arrays?
« on: August 11, 2007, 01:33:42 am »

I was on ebay and searched a bit to find nothing.  I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or used the TVI Audio CT or BT series line arrays.  They are currently on EBAY. Here is a link to the CT
http://cgi.ebay.com/Line-Array-System-CTseries-Compact-Line- Array-System_W0QQitemZ200136512892QQihZ010QQcategoryZ47094QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

and for the BT

I was looking at changing my setup and possibly array system, just looking for info on these if any.

I would stay away from any speaker manufacturer that states in bold print " WE DO NOT OFFER DEMO'S OF THIS PRODUCT".

And another reason to stay away.  They seem to really be hung up on price.  I didn't see performance as being important anywhere Laughing

And you don't "look" for reps by advertising for them and waiting for them to call you.  It is up to the manufacturer to seek out the right people to rep the product, not just someone who is interested in a greatly reduced price-as stated.

Normally reps don't buy products, they present them to others and get a cut.

I agree-STAY AWAY

Hi,

If you want to contact the Manufacturer, I would suggest that you learn Cantonese or Mandarin.

I was looking at the price and had figured they were probably of pour quality, along with the marketing but I figured I would see if anyone had any experience with them.  You all have echoed and confirmed my thoughts as well. Thanks.

Hi Mike,
Just noticed this is your post too....
Based on what has been discussed in the Versarray vs VRX thread, I really wonder if you need a line array solution for what you have described.  Line arrays are useful tools but certainly not the right solution for every environment.  They can excel in long throw applications, outdoors, venues with balconies (ie theaters) etc where extended throw and vertical pattern control can be useful.  However for the average user playing to smaller crowds at short distances with a common vertical plane, the benefits really become questionable.

Many people have begun thinking that line arrays are better than trap boxes as a general rule.  This is simply not true.  Each have their own benefits and should be used appropriately.  Don't let the fact that line arrays are currently the bandwagon that everyone is jumping on make you think that's what will work best for you in your scenario.  Based on what you said earlier in the other thread, I really think you would in most cases be better served by a small trap rig with some high output cabs that have reasonable pattern control.  I hate making specific box recommendations, but something like Community SLS920's or Yorkville U15's might make a nice top box for you at a reasonable price.    

Regards
Jeff

8 mid-high boxes and 2 subs for $6000ish??  I can only imagine what they must sound like.  Also, the fact they do not give demos of their product sends up a few red flags.  I'd stay away.

I noticed from his feedback that he hasn't sold a single one of them at least as far back as I could see.
