Dave, we run a small McCauley rig (12 boxes soon to be 16) using the SA boxes and more often than not end up fighting with either monitor spill or guitar stacks in a shorter room (we do a lot of clubs and small places). We do mostly punk and hardcore, so we don't tell the band to "keep it down" onstage..we figure, hey...the more the merrier (I know, I know..but when I played I always hated to turn the guitar down)! We run a BSS miniD in our drive rack and I have played around with delaying the mains so the stage and mains are time aligned and it seems to make quite a difference. I already time align our drivers/cabs using Smaart, so delaying the mains is not a problem.
I usually run some pink from a monitor onstage turned around to face FOH to figure it....only problem is, I never seem to know where on stage to pick to figure my delay. Backline area? Back wall? Drums? So many choices....I have been using whatever seems highest SPL....which is usually guitar amp row.
PS: Dave...this is SO cool! Thank you SO much for spending the time on here....I would kill for a job with Rat!!
