In most of my theatre (and corporate) sound design and building consulting, the Meyer UPM has always been the defacto front fill speaker. Most of the time is we needed a sound effect to come from somewhere else on stage like a vacuum or goat or whatever, it was also usually a UPM. Working in smaller theatre, youth theatre and churches, they usually had speakers laying around that ended up being used for these purposes. On a project I'm currently working on, the front of the stage has a lip that was built to shield striplight footlights that have now been removed and we're looking to add front fill to a small space, about 20' across. I'd love place 3 UPMs but the budget won't allow it and the building is also afraid of something so small being so expensive living on the floor. (Someone spilling a mop bucket of water or something) Soo0o0ooooo, what other small speakers have you used as front fill? I'm leaning toward a JBL Control 25AV which I've used for immersive sfx speakers and restaurants and sounded ok, but have honestly never used them in a live environment. Also looking at the Control 52, also used for small scale sfx but never anything live. Am I going to blow them up? I'm not usually one who uses AV boxes for live audio. Any thoughts?
