I hate my line array for just one reason, its big and heavy...
I know my limitations, I am NOT a truss guy, and I dont pretend to be.
Today I am only asking if, within the gear I show, there is a viable option for me to find a local person who does know what hes doing to carry it on with... ie am I being stupid and should leave it, or is it the starting point that can be "built on" by hiring a professional who can perfect it?
There is almost zero cash available here... if I cant make it work, it wont work and I have to carry on floor stacking....
these 4 array sections weigh 252kg.
The hanging point most used is roughly 30cm from the rear of the box. (where the AJ is in the photo).
I cant use a tower, in the one and only test we did, with a max 250kg tower we bent it and had to buy replacement parts.. so I'm not even thinking of going any further with that option...
really getting them just 4-5meters in the air is more than enough..
I "normally" hang these from our 52cm truss , on the outside of the legs when we are crossing the stage front when there are lights being used but lately I've just been rigging these and these alone with no lights and having to floor stack them, in this situation they dont cover the area well nor do they sound great....
SO, is there a way to use a heavy support truss leg and roller with a motor to get these things in the air?
Ie a truss leg/support with no truss, and the motor chain going over the roller and pulling the array up.
I've added some photos of the general kit I have available, there obviously is more parts but it was just a quick run round the warehouse to give ideas of what we own..
These rollers have a good 40cm from truss to roller so enough clearance.. obviously we have longer sections than the 1m ones in the photo, also hinges but with that you know what size I am talking about... I know that
base legs are missing etc but they are upstairs... and its hot there!!
With this option I really dont see where I can even attach a motor too.. but again.. its something we are willing to get someone in, to look into it if there is a viable option ehre.
as I say, vidiot being crazy or is there something in this?
Thanks in advance.
