Note:  My passive system was able to get louder .... but then again with a pair of folded horns and a 3-way 15" set of tops powered by a Crown K2 and QSC 3600 one would certainly hope so.

Yorkville Unity or EAW LA perhaps?

My LED's have amber but they are not as warm-looking as the real(?) deal.
(Maybe I just have crappy LED's -lol.) 

That’s a nice story Mike.  I’ll concede that I still have probably 5 or 6 dozen halogen Pars in inventory for the occasional special purpose.  Speaking to theatrics, it’s around the Chauvet Ovation Series where my eyes stop noticing the difference between LED and halogen, and the latest offerings by ETC and Martin (namely the Mac Ultra) could fool even the most discerning patron.  For concerts though I love being able to do with maybe a dozen moving washes what would have needed a 120k rig just over a decade ago!

Copy Audio/Multitrack Playback

This is such a great tool not just for dialing things in, but also for self-improvement and for training.

They are already 109 USD, then i've heard stories of import and duty fees on top of that. Seems random though. Some things get charged a fee and some don't. Pretty expensive for a mic stand.

Oh and I don't know what was different about today, but it looks like Guitar Center carries them! lol  I haven't seen this before today.

For what it's worth Tim, I've occasionally been charged duties or other fees on stuff I bought from Thomann. The amount has always been fairly minimal, if and when I've been charged. For example, I just bought some mics from Thomann, and the total came to $5,618.55. UPS later sent me an invoice for "government charges other than duties" and a brokerage fee, for a total of $43.67. I'm certainly not going to complain about that amount. I think I've also been charged more than that for less stuff, but still not enough for me to worry about.

I'm under the impression that anything under $800 won't be charged any customs or other fees. I don't know for sure if that's true, but I haven't been charged for any of my orders that were under that amount. The orders I know I got additional customs or other charges on were all over $2,500.

Welp, I was wrong then. I wonder if PK bought the patents off of Sound Associates?

(FWIW, according to this post from the archive, it was M2D; Mica didn't come out until about a year after the FLEXArray had already been in the field. For the sake of interest, here is the original, rather sparse, article from the Wayback Machine.)


Now I'm abashed that I didn't remember that since Peter Fitz has be a friend for 48 years and Domonic Sack for more than 35.

It was Sound Associates for the National tour of the Billy Joel musical, "Movin Out". I don't remember what generation of Meyer LA it was, maybe Mica.

For me it is a tough call between digital mixers and powered speakers ..... but......

Digital Mixers gets the nod.  For the following reasons:

1)  Incredible channel processing built in
2)  All-in-one solution in a very small form factor (I use an X32 Rack)
3)  Multi-track recording and virtual sound check.  This has made me a MUCH better live sound producer.  The ability to multi-track the band, then spend my time off-line adjusting individual channel processing and the mix has made a world of difference for me.
4)  Remote mixing.  NO SNAKE.  I rolled my old 100ft snake out to the garbage (couldn't get anyone to buy it!).  I can now mix from my mic stand
5)  Individual remote IEM mixes.  I have been using IEM's for a long time; however, having the ability to have each band member adjust their own mix on their phone .... wow.

Powered speakers have also been a HUGE change for the better.  They are lighter and better sounding than any passive setup I have ever used.  Note:  My passive system was able to get louder .... but then again with a pair of folded horns and a 3-way 15" set of tops powered by a Crown K2 and QSC 3600 one would certainly hope so.  Still, my PRX618S-XLF's and DSR112's get plenty loud enough for most any indoor venue I will ever play.  Outdoors, I rent more subs, but the DSR112's have enough to cover even a decent size outdoor gig (think festivals, etc)

Load in to setup time is WAY lower than it used to be and my poor old back loves me for the reduction in gear and weight.  The audience loves me for the better sound :)

Also guys I heard many engineers say gain before feedback is independent of mic's sensitivity. But when I use Shure sm58 (cardiod) I found that GBF is more than when I DPA Gooseneck (hyper cardiod) why is that I don't understand.

I think you mean: "Gain before feedback is independent of the source" - different mics will absolutely have different points at which they feedback, feedback is dependent on the mics frequency response, the pickup pattern, and its location compared to the speakers (lets not forget the speakers pattern).

So in a given place in a room, a specific microphone will have a specific amount it can be gained up before feedback can occur, that could +4dB or it could be plus +50dB - whatever that level of gain that can be added it is independent of the person speaking or singing.

My main question is what should be the SPL level from main and delays in relation to each other.

While there are different methodologies how I typically set delays are:

1) I find the delay where the coverage of the delay starts, I place my mic there, and find the delay of the main - that is your time to set the delay speaker to.

2) After I find that time alignment for most situations I often move the delay speakers delay 1-2ms back - this will make the focus on the main speaker at the front of the room, rather than the delay/fill near you.

3) For level I usually set it so that the fill adds clarity and so it is not super noticeable that "I am walking in front of a speaker" I like to keep delays as natural as possible - When I walk from the custody of the mains into the fill, if it is noticeably louder it is too loud. Note if you do the delay trick from step 2 you can have the fill be slightly louder than without as our brain and ears are more sensitive to timing than they are to volume.

Don't worry so much about SPL numbers, since the delay is from the DBX 360 I'm guessing that output is just an extension of the main mix.
Set the level of the delay fills so that when they are on you don't really outwardly notice they are on but when you mute the delay zone feed you can tell that they are off.
Easy to do when using the DBX360 app to control the DSP remotely, you can be in the delay zone while you make adjustments.

As Kevin said, a metronome click is too easy to be a click off, by ear random tapping on a mic is better.
