"Sometimes it's not the volume, it's the distortion.  More distortion creates more high frequency energy (and it isn't the nice kind).  All too frequently I hear PA's that are run way too far into the audible distortion…"

JBL SRX 800 Active Speakers

One of our venues just purchased the new JBL SRX800 powered series and I was wondering if anyone has heard these? They are still so new that I haven't been able to find much on them. Specs wise, they seem like they pound! They have Crown amps/DSP and the tops produce 136-137dB and the subs pound out 135-141dB. SPL wise, they seem like they aren't lacking anything, but I wonder how they sound out of the box without any custom DSP love.See More

Dealing with Unreasonable Riders

Posted by George Petersen on March 16, 2015 at 9:00am 10 Comments

One of the regular clients we have at my soundco wanted us to do the sound and lights for their annual church concert. No problem — it's pretty straightforward. This year, they got a rider from one of the bands that included an Avid Profile, Meyer or L-Acoustics line array, 12 monitor mixes, even tube mics — all for a gig with 16 inputs from stage in a medium-sized church. The band management were jerks (real surprise), so we just ducked out on the sound side and just did lights, where…
