    I know this is a broad question, and I expect it to get shot down. I will do my best to clarify as much as possible.

    My generic question is, how can I deploy larger FOH speakers without putting them on a stick and without flying them? The setup is PORTABLE, so we cannot do anything fixed. However, I'd like to use some taller stack speakers and not your typical SRM450 or comparable sized speakers.

    Examples...the EV QRx 212/75 or comparable size...

    Electro-Voice QRx 212/75 Compact dual 12? two-way

    I'm hesitant to just "set them on the floor" because of the coverage pattern and hitting the balcony level without having to use delay speakers, as it is such a small space.

    So the GENERIC question is: what are other mounting options for these sized speakers without flying or stick mounting them?

    Thanks!

    I've also had good experience with placing speakers on a raked platform to aim them at the balcony levels. I haven't had too much experience with it because it wasn't until this year i was in a space that the speakers could be moved around (old high school had fixed positions 50+ feet above the apron).

    Yep, either a platform (could be scaff or even subs), sound wings, or lifts are your options.
