So just purchased a L1 Classic (used) and a Model 2 with Tone Match. I've been experimenting with them of course. Used the Classic during my last band practice and it definitely cut through as I'd hoped. I'm about to practice with both the classic and the Model 2 and experiment with the Tone Match. Our practice is held in a open concrete basement and, so far, the system seems to do very well.
A lot of the venues we play have their own house sound so I haven't had to utilize the L1's just yet. However, very soon we'll play at a "L" shaped venue tucked away in the back of the building. I've played there many times with a standard PA. I'm very concerned how I am going to set up the classic and the Model 2. The stage area is farthest away from the bar which is great - that allows bar discussions to carry on. However, I'd like to be somewhat heard so concerned how I should set up the Towers...??? I'm thinking one slightly in back off to the side pointed toward the bar while the other is behind the "L" shape of the building yet somewhat toward the front of the stage: That way those in front will absolutely hear us and those at the bar will hear us as well without being engulfed in music. My confusiong with this is the member stage set up.
I do all the lead vocals and some keyboard.
All "FOUR" us do some vocal/harmonies.
Only vocals and some keys will go thru PA.
We play some 80's, 90's, 2000's, and current.
I just want to ensure we'll hear ourselves although the drummer will most likely be furthest away from the 2 towers.
I do lead vocals and little keyboard.
FIVE PIECE yet only 1 other person does a tiny bit of harmonies while 2 more do some microphone "singing" (notice quotation marks).
We play mostly current rock: Tool, white zombie, Chris Cornell stuff, NIN, Papa Roach, Nickelback, Shine down, Buck Cherry, etc.
No instruments will go thru PA save the keys.
Thank you for joining the Forum.
I don't think I'm understanding the room layout. Do you think you could upload a picture or provide a link a picture on the venue's website?
Also - if you have a couple of minutes, you could show us how you normally set your stage. We have an online tool for that. The Sketcher
