    I'm just kinda in a photo mood, and was curious to see how you all have your theaters (or whatever you work in) are set up. Click for larger pics

    Our booths are (from top to bottom, left to right) spots, lights/SM, sound, and video.

    Here's my rig set up in some parking lot last month. The EV w-bins are loaded with old JBL 15's. The bottom traps are Carvin 1801's, the tops are 1503's. Whole thing comes in at about 5.4kW FOH power. Four monitor mixes at 500W each. 24 channels back in the house, 8 channels of compression, 4 channels of FX, digital EQ and dynamics on the 2 mix.

    Yep, 70s. 18 dimmers total. (Not all were pictured) 2 dimmers are completely dead, which I guess isn't bad given it's age. The board does work, it's just not very functional. The pain is that once a year you have to remove all the dimmer packs on the board, take them apart, clean them, etc. It has a few nice features that the never desks I don't think have, like an independent section, "group masters", and un-dim circuits. (just a switch on the board)

    I agree with avkid, when was it built. The only other theater I know that has a pipe organ on stage is the Fox Theater here in town.

    Mind telling us what is in the rack (bottom left)? The EQ's look like ROSS brand but too hard to tell. Be interesting to hear what you have there.

    The Berkeley Community theater was build in 1958, with the pipe organ. Those pipes in the photo are actually mounted 24 feet up in the air on our catwalk, the other ones are in a seires of rooms 3 or 4 rooms above the procenium and house. The pipe organ had a new console(so we have 2) and was redone(including the iunstallation of the pipes on the cat walk) in the last 30 years, im not sure when. The organ parts in addition to the old ones came from the paramount theater in toldeo ohio.

    Thank you for noticing.
    It was saved from a slow and painful descent into self destruction by a few people with an incredible vision.
    Lucky for me they saw fit to "adopt" me as one of their own.
