What strange creatures we audio folks are. I spent almost an hour enjoying each and every photo. Thank you!

This is system that I heard at the "Super Bowl of Rock" at Soldiers Field, Chicago in 1977.  That stack was behind the stage, and and was as wide as the end field.  There were also three "surrounds" way up in the stands that made for pretty incredible effects!  I was on about the 50 yard line, in the middle.  Crazy good.

And because you were in the middle-you were in the good seats.  For those off to the sides-the effect was probably not as good.  However I never got to hear it-so that is just a guess.

Yes, you missed the flying pig, mother and such, and (of course) the diving airplane.  What I found of interest at the time (fortelling my future, I suppose) was experiencing the pink noise testing before the show.  They ran it at a fairly high (though not painful) level for about  45 minutes, testing the main stage and the surrounds.  A few subs on the main stage were smoked during testing.  I was hooked.
