In about 9 hours I'll be on a plane headed for Houston so I can try out this new sound system from Bose: http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_PRODUCT_PAGE_EVENT&product=l1_double_live_music My band is doing some gig at the Hard Rock there in Houston, and we're trying it out. For what purpose, I'm not sure. I guess I'll find out when I get there. I'd invite you Texans out to come check it out, but the vast majority of gigs I do with this band are private conventions, so it may not be open to the public and I won't get a guest list. Sorry. Anyway, apparently the highs and mids come out of these 7-foot cylinders, and the lows come out of those two small woofer boxes. I will say one thing for Bose...they never cease to be radical. I'm looking forward to trying it out, if for no other reason than I want to hear how well a pole-shaped object can pump out live audio for a 4-man band in a small club. Man, small room live sound reinforcement sure has come a long way. I remember when to play a small club we'd have to carry around these huge 18" folded horn enclosures, a mid box with 2 10"s, and these huge horn tweeters. Now you'd go into these same clubs with a couple full-ranges light enough to stick on stands and a medium sized sub on the floor for the larger places. Now we've graduated to poles. Hey, fine with me if it works. They look really easy to lug around.
