Same for me for the first two Glastos - other things going on that at the time seemed more important. Well, at 17/18 there are always things that seem more important at the time, aren't there?

It was my first ever festival, I was 16. My mum tried to stop me from going

I've still heard nothing like it outdoors. Similarly, I've never heard anything close to 1980s motorhead indoors

 I'm still yet to hear a modern line array that has the same 'oomph' in the kick region as an old horn loaded system.

Found a nice photo of the Woodstock mono 350w tube amps.

Hanley Sound utilized rack systems to house its inventory of McIntosh amplifiers, including the eight MC3500s and pair of MI200 amplifiers.


Be seeing you.

Less than 0.01 watts per audience member

The exaggerations about tube watts may just be true after all

The speakers were vott were they not

The article states:

Hanley and his crew custom designed the HSI 410 (Hanley Sound Inc.) speaker cabinets out of marine grade plywood. For the upper stacks, two bass bins were strategically positioned with high frequency horns on top. This was no easy task, especially as each pair measured 6x4x7 feet, and weighed close to 1,000 pounds. These four upper bins came loaded with four 15-inch JBL D-130 drivers. The four lower bins contained four 15-inch JBL D140 drivers for additional bass. Hanley recalls, “The high frequencies were handled by model 1003B 5×2 Altec multi-cell horns (300 Hz min frequency) and my custom-built 2×2 horns, all with Altec 290 compression drivers.”
