Do you actually have any experience running  sound systems at all?

Oh yes, you're quite right. That would surely make him re-consider his views on point source systems

This is more entertaining than watching the Smurfs on X Factor on Sunday night.

Matt im sorry but your plan is basicly a no go from the start. Do you understand what a crossover is and how you use them? How about delays and time alignment? Do you know how to use a mixing desk to get the best out a band? How about compressors, gates, limiters etc?

Line array looks nice, and sound nice if your doing glastonbury and good systems cost a hell of a lot of money. 30K is not a lot in terms of big sound systems. for 30K you could not get a good line array and cables and a desk and storage and insurance and amps and processing. Its not possible.

I think you need to seriously sit down and work out a buisness plan because that sort of money can be used to buy some very nice kit if you go second hand and know what you are talking about when you go to buy it.

Frankly you sound like your the sort of guy who would end up paying list price for stuff because "thats what they cost". You need to work out what sort of venues and crowd sizes you will be aiming to cover. then go and see what others use to do this and then see how much it would cost to get a rig of the same size Once you have done this then maybe you will realise that its not just as simple and buy some stuff, plug it in and hey presto it sounds great. There is a hell of a lot more to it than that.

30k might get you the moniter system they use on the main stage at glasto if your lucky.

I know.
 
There are few things the "pro's" hate more than those nasty FK1 point source systems.

Sorry mate but I hope you have good PPe as starting your first post as speaker geeks is heading you for a whole heap of whoop ass....

tell you what keep your £30k in your back pocket - advertise that you can supply see what come back you get. and hire in for now. then "when you become an overnight success and take all our work away you can go out and get your "big rig" but please will you give me some work as I will be skint and I have a wife and two kids to feed. I think I will struggle as I have only been in the Industry for 15 years and built up a reputation over this period to where I have got today. I can tell from your previous posts James Kahn and the rest of the dragons will be banging on your door for a piece of the pie.
 
Seriously
get yourself a complete little rig of stackable cabs a nice FOH set up and spend a couple of thou, to do a few hundred people develop a reputation and build yourself up from there. otherwise you will have a load of kit getting rusty, going nowhere and burning a large hole in your arse....
