We have folks that complain at every performance that they can't 'hear' the actors. Some want to go to a fully miced stage, but no one has written a check. And I think that it would be above the line for a volunteer, community theater with little formal training technical background . I've pointed out that louder wont make it better if the actor mumbles, etc. In the interim I'm putting in 3 Audio-technica AT815b mics on the first electric (L-C-R). We have a 40x25' stage, 20' proscenium opening. Not sure if I'm going to angle the outside two cross stage or aim straight back and down along the mid stage line. One center speaker cluster above the proscenium, and I've added side speakers at stage lever and mid way through the house. We tried aerial units before, no body liked seeing them hanging down over the stage and if raised didn't seem to do much good. Mainly because we only had 4 units to work with. Any idea, suggestions, comments are welcome.
