    Loudspeakers Speakers for tiny theater

    Thanks, everyone, for your help. You've given me quite a bit to think about, and some good directions to pursue.

    Playing two sound cues simultaneously?

    I use Pd (a.k.a. Pure Data) for sound and lighting cues, as well as almost any other aspect of show control. It's free, open, extremely flexible, and compatible with pretty much any platform. However, you do open a bit of a can of worms by using it, because you sort of have to custom-build your...

    In light of what everyone has said, how would something like the JBL PRX612M compare with, say, the K12? Having that 90 x 50 pattern (with the PRX) it seems might address some of the feedback concerns, allowing us to somewhat shoot over the actors' heads. Brad, you are correct in noting that...

    Loudspeakers Speakers for tiny theater

    We're renovating a very small theater space and I'm trying to find appropriate speakers. It's an odd, asymmetrical space, but it's about 50 feet wide, 30 feet deep, and 12 feet high, with no clear separation between the audience area and the performance area. I don't think it's ever been used...
