    What was the reason you ran two 2x10's as opposed to one 4x10? Easier to carry maybe?

    To me, two 2x10s are preferable to one 4x10 for the following reasons:

    -Easier to carry
    -Easier to buy separately if I'm low on funds/have GAS
    -Easier to sell one and still have a rig if I'm low on funds/have GAS
    -Can set up in a line array

    What is that sitting on top of your SM-900? It looks like some kind of switching device?

    Is that a Goliath III? I noticed it doesn't have a nameplate.
     

  13. Much easier to transport. I live in a 3rd floor apartment, it would be impossible for me to carry a 4x10 Goliath up and down the stairs by myself.

    The little device at the top of a very tall skinny stack - my trusty SWR Grand Prix!

    Sorry I don't have any "realtime" photos at the moment, but my Mini Mo' is the core of my rig (and certainly what I consider a fairly unique "sound"):
