    mounting loudspeaker to grid

    Hi, My school's auditorium recently underwent a renovation. We have a dead hung schedule 40 1.5" pipe grid, 4' spacing. Grid is about 17' above deck.

    Loudspeakers Crown TI-6000

    So at my school, we have 2 Crown TI-6000. These are powered using a Dante switch. Recently anytime we turn on the system using a Crestron system it sometimes doesn't turn on the amps or it only turns on one amp. This means only one array can be powered and since we have to that's not good...

    Line Array Rotation Issues

    I am having 2 small line arrays installed soon. The contractor is concerned about the arrays rotating as the hoists go up. I recall seeing audio riggers tying a line back to the hoist to prevent rotation but since i was not on the audio crew at the time, I don't recall what the actual method...

    How Much Power?

    I suspect this is asked (and answered) a lot, but most of the online guidance I've found has been (understandably) a bit vague. I'm hoping, though, that maybe someone has had experience in nearly the same setting as the one in which I'm seeking guidance. After our last community theater musical...

    Show Dispersion Range in Vectorworks?

    Hey guys! So lately, I've been trying to plot out a sound plot for theatre I'm in and I'm having trouble trying to see what the dispersion of the speakers looks like.
