Just received a rider from a latin big band that requests a FOH system with 30 meyer MSL4 cabs & 650P subs. Venue seats 2000.

That's about 90,000 real watts of audio in a 16,000 square foot enclosure. WTF?

So I have to wonder where they're playing that has anything close to that installed. I don't think there's a rig that big in the entire state.

What type of rider? Did you actually speak with him? There must have been a typo somewhere...


More important question is how much are the tickets going to have to cost to provide them with that. lol


Only thing I can think of is either it's a 30 man big band, they are all deaf and need each cab/sub as a personal monitor, or because MSL4's are long throw cabs the rider is a dick/retarded and purposely asking for way too much.

No typo. FOH & SOH requirements are listed seperately. They only asked for JBL drivers in their wedges, lol. It's for a bar, no tickets, just cover.
