Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

The sight of all those cabs makes me wonder if the youngsters (!!) of today realise how powerful old-school PAs were. The Floodlights/Flashlights/TSM3s were each as loud as most modern line array (sic) units but with a much narrower dispersion pattern so think what several dozen of them were capable of. I can't remember if it was Robbo or JBL-Man who commented on the same thing a while back - both the systems in the last two photos look loud enough to shake your fillings loose!

Big, heavy but bloody efficient. The sheer volume of air that those systems moved was always impressive.

it's all just cardboard and magnets really

I just wish that all of the young whippersnappers on here had winessed those type of 70s and 80s touring systems to fully realise how good concert sound was back then as I am now totally p-ssed off with listening to line array systems that either do not work or sound like an i-pod on steroids.

I absolutely agree John,35 years on,and some of these big modern systems sound appalling,im not just looking through rose tinted glasses and saying"oh the good old days were better ",they genuinely were!....give me a big heavy ground stacked rig (with Gauss,ATC and JBL drivers inside) over this flown nonsense any day.
Be seeing you.
