Line array systems can be hung from head height with the right stands and as I said before I really like the look of them. For the record I have never heard a bad line array


Linearrays are not the solution to all your problems.. trust me..

Example: Local venue, 800 punter capacity:

per side:
6* d&b Q1, 6* Q sub, 1* Q7 infill

To drive this, you need 3* D12 amps per side...

Total setup time with a 2 man crew:
15 minutes to prep rigging and hang the points
10 minutes to calculate angles etc.
10 minutes to assemble array
10 minutes to stack subs
10 minutes to tweak

An equivalent system could be 3* Floodlights + 3* TSW718 per side
This rig can be groundstacked and total setup time would be about 20 minutes with a 2 man crew..
loadin times would be drastically reduced aswell  ( unless you have to load in on a flight of stairs )
the conventional system would involve having to move a total of 12 cabinets and 2 racks.. the linearray system would involve moving 26 cabinets and 2 racks..

Never thought about the time it takes to calculate angles. Good point

of course it would, I know absolutely nothing about line arrays, but what i know from point source is you need to get the right dispersion from the cabinets, and if done wrong, the sound is very uneven across the venue, and it can sound brilliant at the mix position but no where else. You need to make sure people at the back hear as well as the people at the front.

I'd like to see how long it takes for them to fly that AC/DC point source system compared to the equivalent linearray system. I'm guessing 3-4 times as much.

Did it look nice too?

LOL

not as nice as void, BUT as I'm 6"4 the EV X array worked for me!
