“We’ve Lost Something With Line Arrays…”

By Bill Evans / August 5, 2015

When I first started covering pro audio I went on record a time or two about Meyer Sound systems. I believe I said something like they sounded great for pop and jazz and acoustic but that they might be a bit too “polite” for metal or hip-hop. Then I went to my first Metallica show and heard Big Mick Hughes take a Meyer rig to “Full Roar.” And then last year, I heard Outkast on a VER-provided Meyer Leo rig and it was anything but “polite.” I think I was still at the Outkast show when I went online and said the the LEO “doesn’t suck.”

This IS a company produced video which is something we don’t post a lot of here at the SoundProLive Network. But in it, Big Mick makes some really excellent observations about the nature of modern speaker systems and making it not only louder but making sure all of the instruments the audience is hearing are “in context.”

Hey Bill, Finally letting you know that there are no clickable links on this page. Not the picture of Big Mick nor either of the two links actually take you to anything so I, on my MacBook Pro, have to copy and paste. Just making that suggestion.
Also, I claim the same thing as Big Mick about the low-mids in arrays to Larry all the time! I think that’s why I like my point and shoots with the 15″ on top of a sub.
