Mixing L1 and F1 speakers for live performance
Our 4 piece band has a theatre gig coming up max 350 but bleacher seating and a very high ceiling. We own an L1 model II with B2 bass that works for small club performances (drums/bass/guitar/keys/3vocals through a T8s TM mixer and love the fact we no longer need monitors!!!
We feel we need a little more sound reinforcement for this hall. In our area only L1 model I's and F1's are available to rent. So here are my questions:
1) Will a rented L1 Model 1 with B2 bass with our own T8s/model II/B2 system fill out the sound and help the band better hear our own performance on this lager stage and fill the room sufficiently. If yes, how far apart should the two systems be placed?
2) Would renting an F1 812 plus F1 sub and using it with our T8s/L1 model II system work better? Or does the mixing the two systems create sonic anomalies. If this can work how far apart should the 2 systems be placed
3) Can we position the F1/sub behind the band like we do the Model II to avoid having monitors in front of the players or is this a recipe for feedback. (videos seem to show F1 systems used a FOH with monitors for vocalists) Lots of questions and really looking forward to your response.
