Speaker placement...why does this work???
Many years ago while casually researching sound reinforcement just so I'd know a little more than I did, I learned that speakers should never be placed behind mics for fear of feedback.
Presently the 3-piece I sometimes play with has me setting up the PA and I'm using 12 JBL's on stands, set up against the back stage wall and facing forward. The band leader had me do this to use the speakers as both mains and monitors since the sound projects right past our ears, and in an attempt to reduce our volume in smaller venues. The method has achieved the desired result and we're all content with the sound and volume (and not having to set up separate monitors is an improvement too).
It somehow works and I never get feedback! Never! But I don't know why.
Can anyone tell me how and why this works?!?
Many thanks....Tony Noriega in Tampa
