I have upgraded my video production business to include audio support.
I recently purchased one L1 M2 w/B2 and have just found a used 2nd L1 M2 w/two 2B1 subs that appears to be in good shape as a backup.
I've been contracted to provide sound support (2 mics: 1 lapel plus 1 handheld for speeches and announcements) for a retreat at a conference center.
The room's dimensions are 40 ft x 100 ft with 15 ft ceilings.
There will be approx 300 people in the room to include families with small children, so I'm assuming that the system will be competing with some background noise.
I also need to provide an additional zone of coverage to an outdoor area just outside the first area as an overflow area for up to 200 additional people who could be spread outside in area as large 100 x 100 feet..
The two speaker zones will be 60 to 70 ft max (straight line) from each other with only a large floor to ceiling windows as barriers, so I am thinking that my trusty Lectrosonic UHF wireless plug in module would be perfect to run a wireless feed to an outdoor feed as a wired run would require at least 125 ft of cable.
To complicate things even more, they may need possibly a 3rd small indoor area where 50 will potentially gather. This area is also adjacent to the main room but is separated via drywall but only 10 feet x 50 feet (also 15 foot ceilings
I have a couple of powered speakers which would easily cover this potential 3rd area.
So my 2nd dilemma is what's the most practical way to connect the 2 or 3 zones?
I have one T1 mixer, 1 mackie 1202 (4 to 8 inputs) and a used Behringer air xr18 mixer that I just picked up.
I realize that I may need to break this into 2 separate posts as I may try using another wireless system to connect zone 3 (wirelessly).
Thank everyone in advance, if you survived reading this far!
