    well im not even gunna go into what sound equipment my school has, since were getting all new stuff in like 2 months! and everything we have now is crap, but at the junior high, everything is brand new we have a 36ch soundcraft spirit lx7, all shure microphones, i dont remember model numbers, not sm58s but pretty good, we have a few crown amps and one qsc amp, a cd player, also i dont remember the model, 7 mounted jbl speakers and 4 jbl monitors, a full clearcom system, jbl booth monitors, 2 shure wireless mics (i know only 2) and i think there were a few other things in the rack like an amp that was independant of our system for them to use for announcements during lunch and whatnot... but i dont remember what type. i think its interesting to hear about what other ppl have so i can envy you, the highschool has old broken equimpment im not even gunna mention, i brought in stuff from my brother's band last time i needed equipment, but its early in the year and were spending alot of time setting lights and stuff, so for anything we need i can use our crappy equipment for now...

    hehe, the nicest system I ever got to use:

    1 48ch Soundcraft MH4

    18 EAW kf750 tops
    12 EAW kf750 subs
    QSC 3500's drove the tops
    Crest 10001's drove the subs
    Front of house rack:

    1 Klark-Technic Stereo EQ
    1 Ashlea Protea
    1 M3000
    1 SPX990
    1 SPX90
    2 Yamaha DDL units (forget the model number)
    14 channels of compression
    8 channels of gates
    1 CD/CDR unit

    On the monitor side:

    1 40ch Soundcraft Spirit Monitor 2
    10 EAW SR200s
    1 EAW kf 650 sub (dual '15 for a thumper)
    4 JBL in-fills


    2 Ashlea proteas
    4 channels of comps
    4 channels of gates
    1 SPX90

    We only used this rig for two shows through out the summer, but the scaled down version was still nifty.

    Well right now we have a Mackie 1604VLZ-PRO with Mackie SRM450 speakers on stands. We've got three floor mics, and three overhead mics, hanging from one of the electrics. They're Shure Microflex models, but I can't recall the exact models. We're going to get a huge upgrade in May, and I am currently designing the system for the installation:

    We probably will go with an LCR configuration, EAW speakers probably with EAW processing, QSC CX series amps, and a Mackie TT24 digital live console. Here's what I'm thinking. EAW KF360z's for left/right, bi-amped with a CX1102 for MF/LF, and a CX502 for HF. EAW AS300e for center channel, CX302 bridged for that. And either a SB330 or a SB180 for the sub, with a CX702 bridged. We're also looking at new wireless, probably six UHF models in addition to our current two Shure VHF SC series lapels. The TT24 comes with DSP galore, you can have a compressor and gate along with FX on every channel through on board DSP. It has 24 analog inputs all with mic preamps, 8 subgroups, and 100mm motorized faders. The board was designed to have every function available within two button clicks. It also has 12 aux sends (all switchable pre/post), 8 returns, 24 channel ADAT optical I/O, S/PDIF, AES/EBU, and a USB connection to interface with a PC for more extensive control. This board is really only limited by its firmware. I can't wait until it gets installed!

    All this for a slightly larger than 300 seat high school theatre. We also get new ETC lights, too :)
