Volunteered the PA for a charity fundraiser at Groot Constantia the other day, and boy was it fun!
(took me back to my school days, running a maximum of 12 channels through a Peavy 16-channel powered mixer, & operating the school hall spot-light and stage lighting from the hall's back balcony control room.)
- Klipsch RF-7 speakers
- Adcom GFA 5400 Class- A MOSFET Power Amp
- Shure (SM58?) microphone (*)
- Behringer Xenyx 802 8-channel mixing desk (*)
- NAD T512 DVD (CD) Player
The sound reproduction and music selection were brilliant (according to the very many compliments received) & in my personal opinion too. Even though open-air and setup in free-standing space, those Klipsch's excite the space with a glorious, rich, detailed, rivetting sound - with an exquisitely deep authoritive and nimble bass, - 100 % without restraint and completely completely effortless. (even at ear splitting levels)
The little Xenyx 802 mixer did a phenominal job controlling the setup, and kept everything in full cohesion and control, with a magnificent mic-input stage: voice production came through crisply and articulately, with perfect sibilance courtesy of the quality Shure mic.*
- Many thanks to good friend Shamil of Albertronics for the kind use of his entry-level mixing desk and quality mic, and for kindly sponsoring their rental.
