Same old $h!t. New Forum
« on: January 20, 2011, 09:16:14 PM »

Any one ever use pallet wrap to wrap your pa speakers to prepair for rain? A tarp requirs lots of duct tape and bungees but this stuff sticks to itself and you can just trash it.

I know sound will suffer but this is for the "show must go on" events.

Do you guys think it will work?

I think it would probably be too tight to the speaker and not allow enough air to move around - but thats just me, never tried it.

I have never used pallet wrap, but I have had to to do festival sets with the speakers (mains and monitors) covered with blue tarps.

In threatening weather, I usually have a plan that includes tarps rolled up and placed where they will be deployed.

I don't know if pallet wrap would be better or worse than a woven tarp as far as the effect it would have on the sound.

I'd say it's a reasonable idea, and worth a try.

I wouldn't use it. It doesn't create a barrier or seal like a one-piece tarp will do. When I did warehouse work while in college, we'd get shipments wrapped in this that were soaked inside.

I wonder how being that tight it would effect the speakers port/tuning?  Even tarped the box tuning may be effected somewhat.
Also with powered speakers becoming used more and more I would worry about the heat. I know I've put some plastic bags over my EF500p speakers and they ran hotter than I've noticed before. Not "worry" hot but still hotter than normal. I would not want to wrap them tight.
