Looking to get away from hauling so much stuff! I am in a couple of working rock/country/variety bands and was looking at the L1 Model2 with the B2. Likely getting two of these.
I could run this either through my mackie mixing board, or through the t1 (haven't decided whats best practice yet). Shredder type guitar player mic's his boogie marc V 25 , bass player mics his bass though markbass, fantom g8 keyboard, 3 vocal mics (smbeta58a), and usually just mic'ing the kick on the drum.
Is this out of ordinary? The spec's say this would work for a room of about 500 people, but realistically how far is the throw? I also know this depends on the room, acoustics, how many people, etc. but I suppose Im looking for just a general answer to this/
I see a lot of acoustical type acts using these but I don't really see anyone from a rock perspective. I realize this kind of system is not going to fill up a festival tent like a traditional PA would in regards to throw, but hoping to use it in the capacity to get rid of my monitors, and keep mix well, while rocking out the dance floor in mid range venues.
I go to the local music place (big name music store type) and they just kind of shrug their shoulders and give me a funny look when I ask these questions. Any input is appreciated!
