Volume issue? or is it me?
Hi....looking for some advice...
L1M2B2 with T1
F1 812/F1 sub x2
Also have T8s and T4s and Behringer XR18
and 2 S1 Pros
Performers: Duo to quartet with backing tracks; two guitar; two vocals; add drums / bass; mostly one acoustic, one electric guitar, two vocals ipad backing tracks
Typical setup: L1M2B2 w/T1 for up to about 150 guests [for dancing]
over 150, either bring out:
Setup A) F1 812/Subs [one stack per side] with XR18
Set up B) L1M2B2 one side; one F1 stack other side
S1 Pros used for Monitors.
For Setup A - traditional PA setup; F1 stacks up front; S1 Pro monitor, sometimes use aux send for subs; typically mixer to sub to top
For Setup B - main CAT5 out to L1M2B2, main out to F1 sub/Top; aux out to S1 Pro
Issue: Seem to struggle with volume out of F1 system. All gains are all set correctly - never an issue with L1M2B2. F1 systems are set at between 1230 and 1 oclock; mixer output is at unity or slightly above......same mixer setup with different speaker cabs [for ex, Yorkville paraline], system is significantly louder. Additionally, F1s seem to trip red quite often - backing off volume reduces red, but obviously, lose volume out front.
Any thoughts or advice? Anyone else experiencing same situation?
