yes, thats what i remember too Tony, but i will struggle big time with one. Ill speak to the venue and see if they mind me tailing in properly. That way, we can all have more power as required. My little reflex boxes suck a lot of power and are nowhere near as efficient as your subs.

If this is not possible, or the incomer is not up to the job, then i might have to see if someone else has a looped out 32A outlet that they don't me hooking the second rack up to - on the basis that if we are not both pulling current at the same time as, or course, a silent system pulls milliamps.

It its all to much trouble or causing waves ill run a smaller system of one - but where is the fun in that!..

Normally it would be 4 subs, 4 upper bass, mids and hi's etc. were you thinking of more than this?

I wonder how many broken lamps they get due to these events. Very friendly bunch Gradav.

Tony - yes, i will be bringing in more than 4 subs. My subs are tiny and are not capable of anywhere near the SPL of a scoop - mini or full size. Its also a one way bass solution as all the systems we deploy are 2 boxes - sub / bass and mid / high.

a stack of 12 of my little subs would be smaller than 4 S118's for instance.

Dont get me wrong - for me this is strictly not a competition ( i really do mean that) , merely an opportunity to stretch the legs of the system a little for good fun, as 99% of the work we do is usually very restricted as to the amount of bass we can use - Festivals, corporate events, etc etc all seem to have noise issues.

As regards the comments that will come about the number of 18" drivers etc, i cant argue. I don't claim to be able to fill a venue the size of GP with 4 subs, and would not bother trying. As you know, my work is very different to that of a roots sound system, but i think there is plenty i can learn from the way others work, and there is maybe a little that others can learn from me. This, and the fun motive is why i am delighted to be involved.

there is so much room on gp you could bring both [preferably with the void arcline tops]  just for demo'ing
Produce a killer sound. Take no prisoners.

Chris as long as Jason knows what you are doing , everything will be fine. People do use these events like a sound clash in spite of what they say. 
For me, GP is a place to conquer, and this time around I will definitely find out what a little system can do in a place that size. This will be my last try. Ive' done over 40 Gigs since I was last there, so I don't need to test the system, although I do need to test myself to see if I've improved since the last time.

On this occasion, i think it will just be my subs. I will bring a couple of my mini tops ( the twin 8" units) but the main mid high will come from some arcline 6 - so at least you will get to hear those.

To bring void subs too would need a larger truck due to the weight, and that gets expensive. 

I do have a larger, high output mid high on the way, but i am still at an early stage with it, so it will have to wait for another day. I am particularly looking forward to hearing Tony's R2U mid high boxes again, as my design has a similar component line up, and it might give me a reference as to the sound i want.

Ill see if one of my regular drivers is free that day and let you know as that will be the cheapest way, and we get another pair of hands too
