In Topic: Best Active Speakers Under A Grand

22 March 2014 - 12:32 AM

I would also add EV and dB Tech speakers into your choices.  Both make some excellent cabinets and you can pick some up 2nd hand for a bargain.

But of course, sound is always a very personal and subjective issue.  You really can't beat having a proper live demo.  When you're spending a considerable amount it's worth the time and effort to visit your local dealer or even take a road trip round a few dealers and have a good listen to as many different speakers and brands as you can.

In Topic: Any Ideas To Liven Up A Crowd

Put it down to experience.  Probably just one of those nights, sometimes whatever you do you just can't get a crowd going.

Two weeks ago I had a very similar night, then my last two gigs were absolute belters where I had them dancing from the start.  I think I could have played anything and they'd have danced!

Can't please all of the people all of the time.

In Topic: New Forum Lay Out

It's using the same board as another well known forum (which has also suffered hugely from facebook).

It's good that somebody?? is trying to keep the place alive!

In Topic: Db Technologies Cromo 12 Club

I had a listen to the Cromos at my local retailer and I was very impressed.  Excellent clarity and performance, especially at the price you paid!
I actually rated them higher than quite a few more expensive speakers I demo'd.

The only thing I noticed was that could get slightly bright/harsh at volume but a little eq soon solved it.

For larger gigs I would pair them up with a dB SUB15D.  Or if you could stretch to a pair, you'll have a system capable of all but the hugest of venues.

In Topic: Fog Scent

30 November 2013 - 01:20 PM

I've tried this before, just a couple of drops to a full tank is enough.

Although I haven't used a fog machine in years (I moved onto haze), in my experience you will inevitably get people complaining that they hate strawberry/whatever scent you added and they are getting headaches....

It's a nice idea and some people will love it but the complaints outweighed any novelty factor in my opinion.
