Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: Yes it is, but even better (for me) will be sound check

Hey, Tom, I have a question. In venues and in pro audio magazines, I often see speaker arrays being "flown" from the ceiling, and I often think "How do they know how much weight that structure will hold?". I 'get it' that they're often concave and so are pretty strong, but still, do they just cross their fingers and hope for the best, or are there weight limit specs which the tour sound companies get in the contract before setting up? I mean, seriously, when the sound crew is hanging literally tons of speakers from a ceiling, that's gotta be an issue.

Fortunately, I got out of the tour P.A. field while we were still doing floor and scaffolding setups, so I haven't had those nightmares to worry about!
