    Line Array music

    To exploit the full power of high impact music one needs to listen to this;

    Modern Drummer Festival Weekend 2003
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...s=dvd&v=glance

    It's one of my favorite demo DVD's.

    "Nathaniel Townsley and his Trio" - When the bass guitar player hits his notes,
    the 49 cent midwoofers in a tuned port with 'room gain' knocks stuff off the 53"
    TV like remotes and CD's. Measured 126dB[c] upper midbass peaks at listening
    position. pretty cool for cheap 4" drivers and no woofers/subs in the sound system.
    Imagine what can be done with drivers costing more than 49 cents

    The real showcase is listening to snare drums. 1200 watt transients mated to
    104dB sensitivity [calculated] is pretty intense, even for 'cheap' drivers....
    Imagine what can be done with drivers costing more than 49 cents

    The Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne (2005)
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...s=dvd&v=glance

    Hotel California - The intro has the dude playing the horn and at elevated SPL
    levels I believe it's louder than if the guy was in the house playing that horn,
    pretty intense sound, very clean and will destory some virgin ears.


    If you have a line array designed for ultimate punishment, you have to be
    spanked for not having this in your music collection;
    Slayer - Reign In Blood: Still Reigning
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...s=dvd&v=glance

    The song 'Raining Blood' is pretty cool. Slayer has a habit of blowing circuit breakers when cranked, very nice. This particular song they installed sprinklers
    on top of the stage to 'rain blood' on the band members. Tom Araya [singer]
    with his long hair, body covered in 'blood' is head spinning in circles with
    bloody wet hair and when you watch the video and experience 120+ dB[c]
    of midrange guitar screaming, you get a boner. What could be better? .....I know,
    the real line array I'm building, not this entry level system Even I get
    amazed at what this system can do in reference to 'store bought' [junk].

    Did I mention already -> Imagine what can be done with drivers costing more than 49 cents ?

    Re: Line Array music

    To add;

    The power of a line array has a habit of revealing the source end,
    whether good or bad. One example;

    Everyone in cyber recommends this as a SQ reference. "ooooh, it sounds so good" .. "ah... Diana rules, best I've ever heard "....

    Diana Krall - Live in Paris (2001)
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...n=130&v=glance

    ... so I buy this DVD to check out, waiting for the SQ magic of her voice to mezz me...
    Song starts off good, John Clayton playing with this strings on bass, her voice comes
    and grabs you..... THEN, the rest of the band kicks in and there is some god aweful hiss
    in the backround as if someone patched in a bad instrument in the mixer during the
    recording session... fugg,, when you have a high sensitivity loudspeaker this nasty is
    more annoying as it's amplified pretty loud .. I was trying to figure out if it was due to
    a certain musician but I couldn't pin-point the source.

    I connected headphones to the source and ... yep .. it's there, but faint... nobody would
    really notice --- because they don't have a sound system to exploit the weak recording....

    Bottom line: It's the svck, far from being a SQ reference.

    On the other hand, her SACD music is cleaner... but Slayer or Vader ownz her
