Alright, so within the last month my church has completed a new youth room. Its a pretty amazing room. I'll go ahead an post a few pictures here since I haven't told the CB Community about this yet. I haven't gotten excellent pictures yet, but here is what I have. Overview of the stage during band practice. The lead worshiper that week. Chris, our normal worship leader was in Greece for some conference or something. Anyway It was a lucky capture I got. The bright white light is a Technobeam. Picture during the first service in there. Unfortunately its blurry due to the half second shutter speed, but it gives a feel for the room a little better. I'll post an equipment list based on what I can remember in the Off-Topic area. Anyway we were setting up the sound rig Tuesday night before the first service Wednesday. Yeah late, there were some issues that weren't addressed as they should have been and speakers didn't get flown till earlier that day. Anyway we were setting up our Soundcraft Series Two console and it was acting really strange. We had been using the mono output on it in our other room with subs in aux 8. In this room we were going to use the "mix" output (it combines the left and right main faders into one) and have a dual mono setup with subs on the aux. The right bus on the board was messed up though, so we used a small Allen & Heath we have for the upstairs booth (our main FOH booth is on wheels so it can be rolled out of the way for banquets and a small board upstairs can be used for reinforcement) and verified that our board was in fact jacked up. It was after 5:00 pm when we figured that out, but we scrambled and rented an A&H ML3000 for the time that our Series 2 was getting fixed. We got through the first service, and the second. We had to use some rented amps during that time due to us not getting amps ordered in time. This week our Series 2 was back, and we replaced the rented Macrotech 3600 with its 5000 counterpart that we purchased. The subs it was driving worked fine for quite a while, but then when service started it dropped out once. It came back, and all was good. It dropped out again though, and went into an intermittent state. It would come on every 3 seconds for one or two notes on the bass guitar, maybe a kick, then it would go out. Jason, our audion engineer went to the amp room to figure things out. I was in the service worshiping, and I noticed he left so I went and ran FOH having no idea what was going on. He came back and informed me the amp room was full of smoke. I was just kind of like what? I had a chuckle about me in fact. Yeah, a chuckle. What I later found out was the smoke was coming from the electrical area on the rear side of the rack, not the amp itself as I suspected. He unplugged the amp during a quieter time for fear of it pulling a lot of current at another time and him getting shocked. He put it in another circuit and it went fine for the rest of the night. That was the result. There is more the picture didn't get, I only took one and it was blurry due to not enough light to focus and my cheap camera not having an AF assist lamp. The wirenut seen on the far left with the brown on it had a white wire, and another wire going into it. The white wire appeared to have melted insulation, and some copper was exposed not far at all from the wire nut. I have no idea what went wrong here other than I know it isn't something I need to be fixing, the electrician needs to be fixing that, I'm curious about what happened though. It seems to me that if that could have been happening a breaker should have blown or the wire used was defective perhaps. The breaker would blow if there were a short or too much current were being pulled. To make the above happen it seems like quite a bit of current would be flowing to me. Could it be that there was a voltage spike that compromised the integrity of the wire, then the continued use on a high current device caused this result? Anyone have any ideas? FYI I'm pretty sure the circuit is 120v AC 60Hz 20A. Its a good thing the room, at less than a month old, didn't catch fire.
