It depends a *LOT* what you want to do with your linearray..

If its large scale festival shows, 30K wont get you far, but if its smallish venues you want to do, there are several contenders, but again: 30K wont get you far..

30.5K will get you:
10* JBL VRX 932 midtops
10* JBL SRX718 subs
2* flying frames ( you still need steels, safeties and a pair of chainhoists )

a popular match for this would be a pair of ampracks w:
dbx driverack 260
1* Labgruppen FP3400
2* Labgruppen FP6400

IOW you have spent about 60-65K for a rig ( flightcases, rigging and wiring included ) that will do bands for 6-700 punters with acceptable results

Theres a lot of smaller companies over here using setups like this... They arent fantastic, but they get the job done...

I have heard plenty of good reports of the linearray offerings from Void, so that may be worth a listen.. ( I am a Void dealer, so please ignore this, if you think I am biased )

Oh... and please consider if you really need a linearray to do the show, and not just need it to look cool...  Used point source cabs of pro level quality would most likely cover your needs and get you lots more value for money..
Turbosound Flashlight, Martin W8, EAW KF850 etc go for 1000-1500£ per stack and are generally much more flexible in a rental situation, and would be accepted by most guest engineers, no questions asked - this could be a problem with a MI grade VRX rig..
real phone no: +45 four zero six two four four nine eight ( using obvious anti phone spam encryption )
