This setup wasn't my prettiest but I had no room for the facade nor my newly purchased Scrim Kings (speaker tripod versions).  This was an all-ladies event in downtown Atlanta.

My new ETC Source Four Jr. Zoom with custom gobo.  It was set up on a tripod which turned out really nice.  The promoter was more than pleased.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3298/5783377059_177958b43f.jpg)

I had 2 EV QRX212/75's on covered scaffolding (Thanx Mike Christy) and two center clustered Danley TH-118's on the dancefloor.  For lighting, I had 2 Global Truss tripods with pairs of ADJ Megapixals, Martin SCX700's and 500's.

... Below were the remnants at the end of the night.  This is the 2nd gig I've done this year were something fell from the ceiling.  Luckily, no one was injured when they fell.  The promoter said the owner was gonna hold her liable for the damages but it seems that maybe his ceiling components weren't screwed down too well (these subs have a way of revealing such flaws).  He asked that I lower the bass but that was defeating the purpose (I still obliged).  He said this had never happened before and that they had "Kid Capri" DJ'ing there and didn't have problems with things falling from the ceiling.  Kid Capri wasn't playing on Danley subs...

Hey - The gobo is a nice effect. I have a 22 foot box truck I usually park in front of most gigs. You gave me the idea of planting my logo on the side of that truck for advertising. This is also an awesome idea to place a custom gobo on the wall (inside or outside).

Not my system, but I thought this might interest people.  All the companies were great to work with and the lighting guys happily let me use their (compatible) motor control to drop the PA when a fuse blew on the starter of the sound generator.  Team work and patience  after a 24 hour call is always nice to see!

Towers are Applied Line Array towers from Light Action in Delaware
PA is 6 4888DP per tower (four corners) and 18 4880 subs from MSI
Sidefills are JBL VP, Buttfill is VRX with an old MSI sub
DJ system was one DJM 900, two CDJ2K's, two tech 12's, one DJM 800 and two CDJ1K's, all from Tripp Sound in Philly

Lighting was someone else's job - Road hog and Mac 700's I think...  By Afterglow
The fan 'thing' behind the booth was compliments of the video guys - company unknown.

Are all those speakers really necessary just for DJ monitors?  (middle picture)

What speakers are you referring to?  The four towers are the PA, the sidefill and buttfill are the monitor system.  Was that overkill? Sort of.  The sidefills on their own would have been driven to limit all night, and one artist's rider required buttfill.  The coax wedges upfront were for a couple MC's.  I wouldn't have wanted anything less on the monitor end.  The smallest stage (just beside the dance tent) had KF850 over sb850 as texas headphones.  They too requested more, so additional sb850's were brought in with some SM500's as buttfill.  Too much is just right!

Yep.  I was just speaking of all the speakers on the immediate stage surrounding the DJ table and in the rear of their table.  I've never spun in such environments so I guess it's over my head.  I'd be one of those DJ's requesting you turn the monitors down as I tend to like the thought of long-term good hearing :-)

The monitor systems were actually quite modest and reasonable compared to most EDM events IMO.

This entire event is obscenely loud.   I had Westone foam IEMs in to be able to hear the radio and still felt that I could have used more reduction. The tent pictured is the second smallest of four stages (others were SL100, SL250, SL320) in a surprisingly small area.  A little speaker on a stick would get destroyed trying to keep up, especially over the course of a 16 hour event.

I shared the tent photos because it's a fairly unusual setup compared the the usual L/R hangs off a stageline that we've all seen before.  The design was not mine (though I had some input), but the idea was to create a nightclub atmosphere in a giant tent.  We were successful in that regard.  The line array towers almost became set pieces, and the aesthetic of the sound system is almost as important as the function for EDM.

One of hte reasons for massive monitoring systems is to attempt to drown out the delayed PA arrival at DJ mixer.  I once had the issue at a club where  turbosound tms-3s as monitors were the solution to compete with the PA.  The club's first attempt was a single yamaha particle board pole mount speaker, lol

You think that's overkill?

Take a look at this:

That's a Dynacord COBRA-4 system, 4x Cobra-4 TOP & 4 COBRA-PWH subs, powered with 4x Dynacord Power-H 5000's (2500w/ch@4ohms). Just for monitors.

I think that the SENSATION events can classify as best DJ sound system applications.

A very challenging event for all of the crew, rigging, lights, video, pyro and sound.

Take a look at the gallery if you are not familiar with it.

One thing that I believe the industry should clarify and classify; what 'type' of DJ are you?  This is not a poke in the eye to anyone, so don't take it that way, everyone has a place and a niche.
Wedding/Formal party DJ that acts as a MC as well as a DJ (plays and talks).
Party DJ that may or may not act as an MC (just plays).
A mixer who creates music by either playing instruments or media (sound bites) or remixing existing songs.  An artist per se.
A mobile club DJ could be it's own classification.  This DJ plays music, is not an MC, does not wear a tux and has a large sound system and lighting system.  Usually takes a few people to pull this one off because of the complexity of the system(s) (music and lights).
I, for one, play what the audience wants, as close to ALL request as possible.  There are no lights on me, only on the dance area/floor.  My only concern is that the party goes down the way the client wants.

Thoughts on these classifications?  Food for thought.

PS.  I would never do a formal event or a wedding reception, not my thing; and allot of DJs wouldn't do a college party or mobile club environment (Rave).

Yes Reggie they do. The biggest I have set up so far is 4 21s coupled and 2 25s under 4 23s for about 1000 and we had volume to spare.


I usually setup the 2 21s on the fllor, the 25s on top of the 21s and the bass is great for my application which is usually loud parties up to 400 kids.

RCF is coming out with a similar setup called the D-line and I think the subs will be all 18 inchers

Our standard point & shoot setup for DJ gigs:

(4) JBL SRX722 tops
(6) JBL SRX728 subs
(4) JBL VRX928 fills
Crown Macrotech 9000i or iTech 8000 amps, depending on scenario.

Sometimes we scale up or down.  Often there are DJ/Live PA acts that play on our festival stages as well. 

Enjoy!

Here's the setup for a recent prom I did.  I didn't feel like bringing out the QRX212/75's and the required scaffolding to set them on.  I probably could have gotten away with splaying them on top of the 4 clustered subs.

This setup looks awesome. I suggest moving those bass cabinets out of the way of the facade though. They seem to be taking up too much real estate in front of the whole DJ setup.

Eh... I didn't like the way they decorated the stage anyway so to cover it up was for the better.  There was really no other convenient place to put the subs because I didn't want to break up the cluster.  I also have the subs to keep the kids at bay from song requests.   ;)

Hey Sean.  I sometimes use the NS6 on gigs where cutting and scratching aren't necessary.  The Denon3900's and 1200's stay at home for practice.

Yes this was the first gig I used the speakers at and got the stands a few days prior as I they do not have pole mounts on the bottom and do not want to drill holes in the speakers . The funny thing is that a few people commented on how they really liked the looks of the setup as is however it wasn't a fancy affair I dressed up the room with lights but it is a Vet building on the beach in Santa Barbara.

Been using those stands for years for actual woodworking, -never crossed my mind to use as speaker risers!

I'm using a Crown itech 6000 for the sub in 2 x 4ohm mode feeding each woofer 3000 watts in the DBH and a Crown xti 4002 for the tops probably order another DBH 218 in a few months. I'll keep the 4 Synergy horn tops and maybe get 2 SH 96's down the road .

I've got 2 DBH218 under center stage and boy do they kick. I've never had bass like that. My previous subs were Meyer 650's and I don't miss them at all.
Any DJ I've heard has just been a bad smear of distortion. Your system must change that. Is this a portable or permanent system?

It's portable I built a custom cart for the DBH and have a truck with a lift . Most of the stuff I do is large venue parties last one was at Pat Nesbitts estate out on his polo field it was a fundraiser .John what are you powering your 2 DBH 218's with?

I'm using a LabGruppen FP10000Q with each speaker getting a channel. I think that's 2k watts at 4 ohms. I've got more SPL available than I need but we sometimes get other bands in here.

Mine are semi permanent. They never leave the building but sometimes get dragged to 2 other rooms. I have SH96HO's flown in our main room and use SM80's with the subs when we have to move to the other rooms.

2 SM80's with one or 2 subs would be great for your smaller gigs.

Very nice I haven't heard the SH 96's but  they must have serious headroom when I get my other DBH218 I need to get another itech 6000 or I was thinking of the Crown Macro Tech 12000i in 2 ohm not sure yet . I'm looking for a permanent room for the system but stay in my garage - studio in-between gigs.

I really, really like the SH96HO's. They have even dispersion throughout the room. The tone sounds the same everywhere, it just gets quieter as you walk away. I feel like I'm mixing on giant studio monitors. I've had to rethink my mixing cause nothing is hidden. Small eq changes are heard. But I can't seem to make them sound bad.
I've had a few guys use them but they complained cause they weren't line arrays.

Yes the Synergy Horn is amazing I won't go back to anything else it appears it's the only fresh design out there .I'm sure some of the line array people will want to use them as it's less speakers and amps needed for the same output however I do think the Synergy Horn is a better sounding box just my opinion .

I agreed with the concept and bought the speakers without hearing them. Had a lot of people trying to talk me out of it and getting 2 - 4 box "arrays". I kept telling them that is a 4 line array boxes and not a line array. They didn't understand that.
Anyway, they exceeded my expectations. A new idea on an old design.

Ok guy/gals.  Let's see some Pics of your DJ systems.  Large or

Ridiculously large?

Here's one of the sound systems that I run. It's called Robot Heart, and it's a perennial Burning Man favorite. 85,000 watts of amplification, Mark Wayne-designed mid-highs, double-12" JBL driver mid bass boxes from my company, and B&C 21SW152 subs; 18 of them to be exact. The whole system is processed by a network of BSS Soundweb London processors and Crown I-Tech amps. The whole rig is mounted on a classic British double-decker bus.

Last weekend my friend Blaze, and I put on our annual Float Bash in Steeelville, MO.

This was the first year we brought out everything we could and it turned out great!

If you live in the Missouri/Illinois area and want to go on a really fun float trip you can get more info (and see a ton of pics from this year) on our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MoFloatBash/ (https://www.facebook.com/MoFloatBash/)

The plastic on top of the truss was to protect from rain and dew, it worked perfectly.

This setup used every piece of gear I have.

It's a shame he's got $6k worth of DJ equipment provided and instead he's using the Fisher Price My First DJ Controller™

Unless maybe it's a Pioneer EFX500, but he looks way too young to know what that is, plus all those features are built into the 900NXS. And his laptop is directly in front of the controller. I assume that was just the opening act?

What exactly is the stretched scrim behind him?  It's visually interesting but looks easy to set up.  It appears translucent, at first glance I thought it was a video wall.

It's a shame for our community but Pride got cancelled in Cleveland, city cited safety concerns but everyone I know close to the situation said it was all politics.

A good friend of mine provides production for the main stage for the last 8 years.  It was a big hit for him.  It's one of his largest shows.

I didn't catch what controller it was. Not the opening act; I was on the parade crew this year and so didn't get down to PrideFest until about 5PM or so. Thankfully, the open bar backstage wasn't out of liquor yet. :D

It actually is definitely a video wall. You can just see the truss/motor point USL of the screen in the picture. They had a video op at FOH for running ambient video through it, plus DJ logos as needed.

Seattle Pride is one of our largest weekends of the year as well- if it got cancelled, it would also be a major hit for us! There was definitely a lot of safety concerns this year, given the recent events in Orlando/elsewhere, and there was a solid police presence. In fact, one of my clients with a Saturday-Only show wanted to expand to Sunday as well, and the city denied their permit citing lack of police resources to serve that additional event (located on Capitol Hill, the gay district), on top of the main parade and festival downtown.

Nice looking setup, love the SRX.  When using two tops a side you need to "splay" the speakers instead of aiming them straight ahead.  That causes a portion of the coverage to overlap, in the areas of overlap you will have destructive interference.  Unless you need to cover a really wide room I doubt you need two tops a side either.

The subwoofers are under the table cloth in front of the table. I put the movers on top of the subs.

There are two more movers on top of truss totems and 4 pars on a crank stand behind the pipe and drape.

Behind the camera are two wireless delay speakers for an attached dining area that was about 80' from the main speakers. Without the delay speakers i would have had to blow away the people close to the DJ table and it would have increased the chances of feedback. It also allowed me to control the volume of music vs. mic to these speakers as I fed them with an Aux feed from the mixer.

All the speakers are networked, either hardwire or WiFi, to be controlled with the SRX Connect app. I did this so I could control the sub volume and set the delay and volume of the delay speakers.

The math doesn't support that assertion.

You add cabinets to increase width (area) not volume (loudness).  Under the most ideal of circumstances the extra cabinet would give you 3db.  With the amount of overlap you have you are destroying more sound than you are creating.

Without splaying the cabinets properly you won't get the width.

With 2 it was clipping with 4 it wasn't... Not really much more to it than that.  Would the crowd the notice the difference?  Nope not one bit, as almost every club in the city has a horrible sound system.

What does either of those things have to do with anything?

Why was the system pushed to clipping?  Were two speakers a side producing more output or covering more area?  Since the DJ/Operator can't know the answer to either question behind the speakers were measurements taken to establish levels in the club at various input levels?

I am sure that the DJ forums fawn over this stuff, but the fact is we listen with our ears not our eyes and those two forward facing speakers the system would sound clearer with less distortion.

Because other clubs in your market suck you want to take great gear, deploy it improperly, make it underperform then use the fallacious reasoning that it sucks less than other clubs in the market?

The volume difference between clipping and not clipping is almost in-perceivable. When you add  two more speakers on to two clipping speakers you get 4 clipping speakers, unless you pull your fader down, which I'm sure you did.

People mistakenly hear destructive interference as loudness, so I'm sure you thought it was louder with 4 top speakers but per what Scott said, it most likely wasn't actually any louder. At least not the tops. Subs, might have been a different story.

Had they been properly splayed you would have been producing a little more overall sound in the room, and I think when you are just on the verge of not having enough, 3 db can make a difference, but as you had them unlikely you got any benefit with your tops.

If you're looking for a scientific answer sorry that won't happen.  Like I said, when just 1 per side was on the limit light was popping on constantly.  Once 2 per side were on it barely came on. I'll be right back in the same venue, renting the same system to them again in Nov.  I can take video and screenshot the db if that will please you?

Stephen,

It's not about pleasing me.  I am living testimony that the guys in this forum that freely give advice will reshape your company and turn you into a better operator.

I don't have an emotional connection beyond gratitude for the tools I have gotten here that I am trying to share. 

What I am asking you to do is to take the leap of science and trust the physics.  A DB meter isn't going to show you anything however I am sure Ivan can give you a clever method to show just how much destructive interference is occurring in the area of overlap. 

You say the light was flashing and it wasn't with two, does that mean that you turned down the input level when the second speaker was added?  If so why did you do that?  Did you think the system was perceptibly louder and an adjustment was in order?

What is your gain structuring?  Where did you make this adjustment?  Did you collect any data from the speakers?  It certainly would be worth bringing some Ethernet cables and/or an access point if you need wireless and using the JBL tools to collect performance data.

Post by: Ray Aberle on August 29, 2016, 10:21:11 pm
In other words, Stephen, if the speakers were clipping with one per side, and you add a second speaker, CHANGING NOTHING ELSE-- they'll both be clipping at that point, since the input level is the same.

Since after adding the second speaker per side you were no longer clipping, clearly you turned it down at that point. However, the second set of speakers would have added 3dB max to your overall level, which is barely perceptible.

Soooooo....

Post by: Scott Carneval on August 29, 2016, 11:07:43 pm
The center of the drivers must be within 1/4 wavelength for constructive addition to occur. The speakers are 21.4" wide, so the highest frequency at which you would experience constructive addition is 158hz. You will gain approximately 6db but only from roughly 80hz (factory crossover) to 158hz. Essentially you're just muddying up the sound, but it WILL be louder. There will also be many peaks and valleys in the frequency response due to comb filtering. So while it will sound louder it will also sound much worse. I guess it depends on what's important to you.

Sorry for the dark picture...

Sorry, this is one of my pet peeves - is there a reason why the tripod legs of your light stands are barely open? I don't buy the usual tripping hazard excuse as there are many ways around that. While your rig isn't massive by any means, that's still a lot of weight you do not want tipping over and killing someone...  I also wouldn't cantilever your truss that much, but without loading details that's just a subjective opinion.

The legs are spred more than adequate and the distance between tripods is also within manufactures specs. They are rated for 100 kgs each and there is barely 120 kgs of stuff hanging including cables. We both are certified riggers that take these matters very seriously.

And you determined this how?

The distance between tripods is also within manufactures specs...

Aside from the prepackaged truss kits you can buy from Guitar Center, I'm not aware of any tripod manufacturer that states how large a span of truss their products can support.  Similarly, I'm not aware of any trussing manufacturer that publishes load tables for a cantilever situation like this, particularly where the centerpoint deflection is up instead of down, as in your case.

Staying within a given product's SWL doesn't automatically make it safe, especially if it isn't set up all the way.

That's interesting.  Aside from intentionally reducing the stability of your entire setup, I also noticed that the direction of the lacing at junctions is parallel when they should be opposed.  I understand that isn't always possible depending on the make/model/size of the truss, but that'd make me even more hesitant to try such a setup.  Just my two cents.  Be safe.

What is the truss brand?  It appears to be spigoted like global truss and the like. GT does not publish any data for cantilevered loading. I don't even remember seeing that for Tomcat. My experience is like Jeff's. Most manufacturers specify maximum allowable deflection between two supports for various lengths. Some also provide max distributed loads as well as single, double, and quarter point loads.

Regarding the stands, I could see that leg spread being acceptable only if the stands are very heavy. Even then, I agree with Jeff. What take the chance?

From what I see in the picture, it appears to be "euro style" truss, as offered by Global Truss, Cosmic, and others. The lift stands appear to be Global ST-132 stands, which are rated at 100 kg maximum vertical load. The crank handle that can be reversed "in" sure looks like the ST-132 design.  The OP appears to be European (based on the phone number and prominent CE stickers on some of the gear). Perhaps GT (or whomever) provides more load data and other information than I've seen in USA-market documentation.

That is very close to being 100% correct.

It's funny how some people refuse to listen and keeps going down a wrong path. This a very safe setup and it's within manufacturer specs and guidelines which are readily available on all our rigging gear.

I asked you several pointed questions - I'm all ears for the response.  Simply stating "This is a very safe setup" without any sort of numerical verification or engineering analysis won't cut it here.  A certified rigger such as yourself should have no difficulty proving the safety of this cantilever assembly with parallel lacing at the joints, or lack thereof.  I'll also ask it again - please kindly explain how you determined that only opening your tripods to the first notch provides "more than adequate" stability.

...and keeps going down a wrong path...

A wrong path of what...being safe?  Minimizing risk in a life safety situation?  Not cutting corners for my own convenience?  Yep, guilty as charged. 

...and it's within manufacturer specs and guidelines which are readily available on all our rigging gear.

Again, you're welcome to prove me wrong.  Please do - I'd love to see the specs and guidelines that are published for this particular form of setup.

As the owner of "euro style" truss, and ST-132 crank lifts, I too am interested in seeing the data. I am aware that the so-called 12" box truss is available in both 2mm and 3mm wall thickness. (At least for some sizes of truss.)

... so there's a point where they'd be spread *less* than they are now that would be considered "adequate?" Just wondering.

Either way...

if this is truly the case, you should be able to talk about the load calculations, weights, and so on.
