You can have all the best toys...... and no-one to play them to if you have no clients?

Where will you be airing your new toys..?

line arrays are used for a good reason - to cover VERY large areas! talking thousands. I believe in larger indoor venues they are hard to get right. As i said I know little about them.

Say you just had your first driving lesson, would you go out and buy a porshe and insure it and wack L plates on it? or buy something more suited? Like a corsa/fiesta

Yes but as i said before i have my heart set on a line array system.


I dont mean to offend anyone, but you sound exactly like the mobile DJs here who call themselves production companies.. Yes, some of them may have a linearray system, some may even have digital desks, but common for 95% of them is that they have no clue..

if you want a linearray, you need to spend quite a chunk more cash if you want to get something as rider friendly and powerful as a pile of Martin W8, Turbo Flash/flood etc.

30K of JBL VRX will get you into hotel ballrooms w. coverbands
300K of d&b will get you into the same ballrooms w. big name acts
30K of used Floodlights or W8 will get you the same ballrooms w. cover bands - AND the ability to do much larger gigs, or more gigs at a time..

The issue you mention about lifting heavy cabinets is not a problem.. Most promoters will offer some volunteer hands to help at loadin and loadout.. - Its just a matter of putting it in the contract..

Another issue if you go the linearray route:
Your get a call for a rig to go in the local venue...  The usual guy does the show w. 1 stack of W8 per side, groundstacked..

to get the same SPL you need 3* VRX932 per side.. IOW you have to bring in 6 cabs per side, a pair of *large* towerstands - or go in the roof and rig some points...   I am guessing that you save atleast 30 minutes and a fair chunk of truck space by going with a conventional system..

On top of that, there are many venues where a linearray rig just wouldnt work...

By the sound of things, i'm not sure you should be spending any money on any equipment. This sounds like a recipe for disaster

Think again... for a decent size system for 5000 plus people you`ll not get much change from 300k.
