    Ok, so.... we might be able to rent some decent equipement this fall.... the only thing is none of us have a clue what we are doing when it comes to renting... So.... below is a list of things I think we are going to need... and my question is "how much?". Thanks for your help!

    18 5-degree Leko's
    50' runs of multicable to go from the lights to the dimmers
    A board capable of handeling 150 channels
    150' of DMX and
    5' of AMX

    I also need a way to split a DMX cable so I can run it to two places, and I also need a way to convert a DMX siginal into a AMX siginal.
    (Luckily we will be able to barrow dimmers and more lights from the community theatre.)

    Now for the sound!-
    300' snake
    2 overhead mics
    6 lapel mics
    A rack w/
    CD Playback
    Casset Deck
    Feedback Ellimnator
    Wireless Headsets (6)

    I also am looking to rent speakers and the nessary amps... it would be about a 200-300' run from the mixing area to the speakers...
    (No I didn't forget the board.... we are barrowing one from the community theatre.)


    If you could keep the light and sound cost seperate that wold be great!
    Thanks Alot for your help![/list]

    Just contact a rental company for a quote. They can probably give you an itemized quote too.

    Three - four hundred bucks, maybe. Not much for a week. Just call your local entertainment company and get a quote. They'll most like;ly itemize it so you can see waht each item runs.
