|I play a local awards show every year and this year myself and one of the local bands paired up. I had my L1 off to one side and one B1 on the floor. They had they’re powered Mackies. They sent a signal to me from their mixer and I plugged it into the base of the L1. They wanted me to send a signal from T1 to them to attach their system because it would give “better coverage”. I of course said no. |
We have both played this room hundreds of times and know its quirks. I never liked playing here until I got the L1. Needless to say I sounded fine and they sounded flat. Half way into their first set I turned the L1 up and the room started to come alive. They still didn’t get it. All night they keep bugging me about connecting into their systems.
Please if you are ever in this situation just say no. It will sound horrible.
If you notice I only have one B1. That is all it takes for this room. Two B1’s and the low end start’s to overload. This room can handle 200 people easy. The L1 was great, lots of compliments from people who hear me all of the time. Like I said the other band didn’t get it.
On another note the picture of the back of the room has another L1. I set this up for the awards part of this event. I sent a wireless signal form the stage to it and everyone could hear all of the presenters. At the end of the night I had everything packed up and loaded into the wife’s convertible, my car Explorer was in the shop, and headed out while 4 of them were still loading a U-Haul truck. Life is good.
