    I'll be playing at a street dance this weekend and we're supposed to set up in a garage. Where would be the best place to place my speakers? Toward the front of the garage or towards the back?

    Speakers for your bass rig? I suggest barely inside the garage, that way, it projects outside and to the sides well, but you're stuff is covered in case it rains.

    Yeah, your gonna wanna project. I suggest that all of the amps and speakers be in front of the band. I hope that your packing some power and (at least) a 15" cab. I actually conducted a little test with outdoor playing a few days ago with the guys... :bag: and lemme tell you...

    900W, Four 10's, and one 15 sounded more like half the power and maybe two 12's (rough estimate). I turned down the gain on the 15 to tinker with it a bit more... Fuhgetaboutit! :spit: It was like playing a friggon combo at MSG! I was boosting low EQ's and unstacking cabs and all kindsa stuff!
