    The Highlander on September 7, 2013

    I'm getting together everything for a Fall season of live music. I am a little short of equipment for live music production. Thanks to the BigE family it looks like we will be OK. The warm up gig will be at The Highlander in Chatsworth IL this September 7th. It is a charity fundraiser with a live band. I hope to see some of you there.

    You those of you techies or just curious we will be loading in a 4pm. The show doesn't start until much later but I like to have plenty of time for setup. All are welcome to stop by and talk tech or speakers or whatever. One could even help load in. The event is located here: The Highlander

    8 GC25s are quite effective powered on two Ashly KLR3200s. It was a long norrow room with a tin ceiling and hardwood floor. The stage width was almost wall to wall. We were really cramped. So the GCs were tight to the wall and practcally on top of the stage: less the optimal. The GCs sounded great. we had nice even coverage with a room average 114db; 117db at the Mains 111db at the back of the room a total distance of about 75'. We also used two Lil'E21s and two RachE18s one of each on each side of the stage about 25' apart standing on end. We decided to experiment with the directionality of the RachEs when stood on end. The idea was to send the bass into the room and not boom the stage even if there was some cancellation. This worked quite well. The was a bass null on stage that extended about 10' in front of the stage. From that point out into the room the bass was quite powerful and even. Three GC25s were crossed at 110Hz running at half power (200watts) for that crossover point. After rectifying some signal chain issues the GCs were crisp and clear. They really do reveal everything. We did notice a couple of frequencies reacting with the wall. This was to be expected as the GCs were stacked directly adjacent to the wall.  Mark Bell took some photos. Hopefully he will post them. I will let Big E chime in here with his impressions and that of the drummer who had some comments as well.
    Thanks to DJ POPPZZ, Mark Bell, Billy Osmon Band, and the folks at The Highlander for all their help and a great show!

    Bring on the outdoor gig on the 21st.bounce

    Our drummer for the evening mentioned he used to do sound and searched for over a decade to get the punch and power we had. In the DJ setting he also liked the sound very much top to bottom. He unfortunately never had the bass we did. Tight and controlled but ever present. He thanked us for making it sound so good. The Billy Osmon Band was a real treat to work for and would like to thank them and they sounded great.
