: Hi...might have an outdoor concert...The band owns the front end equipment(which includes microphones, board, and processing) and four Genie ST-25 Super Towers from which the sound system will be rigged. What rack and stack system would you recommend for this task? I wouldn't be able to exceed a rental cost of $2500 for this one concert...

: Thanks!

Hmmmm, How many people or how big of an area? Flying the system is always better and with the 800 pound limit per super tower, speaker weight is the big issue. Assuming there is room to put the towers, we would do something like 6 V-Dosc or 6 Rat Traps (~ 250 pounds a cab) lifted by two towers per side. Then ground stack some in-fills and subs. As far as the budget, there are several factors I would need to know but it sounds do-able.

PS. Sorry about deleting your post. I was cleaning up some spam and hit yours accidentally.

Depending on where the show is, I will gladly hook you up with a company we trust or possibly do it ourselves if we have the gear in town.
