    yeah i found those about 5 min after posting about this, they are a bit pricey especially since we're only gonna use 3 per speaker.

    ok so here's an update, kind of. we've decided to simply buy new speakers with integrated fly points. 2 Mackie HD1221 speakers to be exact. now in the owner's manual the size of the forged eye bolt needed is M10 x 1.5 x 37 mm, now finding that specific size has been a bit of a problem so i'm...

    I never considered that having a structural engineer or having the the worship director sign off on the project would alleviate my or the church's responsibility or liability in case of a catastrophic failure. it does help to keep the bases covered and assure safety which is my goal in this

    This leads back to a question that has gone unanswered which is would the G30 chain be sufficient for the fail safe line? since the force exerted by a falling object is exponential to its weight i'm slightly concerned about this. according to an online calculator i found (so i'm not exactly sure...

    well that's just annoying because the worship ministry director (who i'm obviously working very closely with) owns his own private contractor business.

    that was my plan but i'm wondering if should be done through more official channels to curb the liability issues.

    well this project has officially become a necessity. by order of the fire marshal (the speakers are crowding the stage and thereby crowding an exit). I was considering (and by considering i mean intended on doing so) tabling this project until the budget came through but that's no longer an...

    be that as it may, i've been commissioned for this project so i kinda have to do it. i have no doubts about the structure's ability to handle the weight of the speakers (there are engineers at the church). its not exactly a large church so calling in expert advice just isn't really in the...

    another question. what would be the best way to attach this rig to the ceiling? we aren't using truss or anything just four points straight onto the ceiling i have a few ideas but any feedback would be helpful

    So will grade 30 be fine for the fail safe as well? i know that the force of a falling weight is exponentially greater that a static weight so i'm a bit concerned on this front. and yeah i was thinking of going with PNTA for the shackles, they seem to have a good price and they're rated.

    so if i only need grade 30 chain then does anyone know of a chain supplier in the seattle area? i still would prefer to not buy this from an internet supplier so i can avoid the shipping cost on the chain being that chain is by nature rather heavy and would cost an arm and a leg to ship.

    Re: flying hardware part 2ok, so 5/8" is obviously too big. this is the first time i've sourced the chain needed and when i was researching chain grades at the beginning of this project i found controlbooth and according the post on this site about chain grades there were a bunch of sources...

    flying hardware part 2I'm wondering if you guys know of any chain suppliers that are local to the seattle area? i'm looking for 5/8" grade 80 chain and would prefer to not have to order from an online supplier in order to avoid the shipping costs. this is for the same flying project i posted...

    EQ compress, or compress EQ? digital vs analogue

    not necessarily. it just requires some care to avoid producing feedback when boosting the output gain. when using lower end and a lot of mobile systems this is really the only option you have left since often times there is no signal processing.

    Digital or analogue?

    If I had my way, in a vacuum, i would want either a M7 or an A&H and of course there are other considerations when deciding on a sound console and as for the higher end products like Midas, well its just that, they're too expensive i've worked with the O1V96 and didn't find it unresponsive...
