    It will if they set it all up like that photo. The way most rig owners just stack there cabs any old way makes me want to cry :D

    Well I spent a good few hours stood infront of the rig in that picture and it sounded really great. What's a better way to stack speakers? (genuine question)

    I was part of the PA crew when they did Download last year. Being stood on the stage when they play is like nothing you've ever experienced. It's a physical thing, you have to blink in time with the kick drum :D :cool:

    They got readings of over 100dB at the FOH position (about 80m away) just from the backline, before the main PA was even turned on :D

    Apparently, the accolade for 'Largest PA System' goes to Iron Maiden

    The Guinness book of Records (1990 ed. p. 155) says: "Largest PA system: On Aug 20th 1988 at the Castle Donington 'Monsters of Rock' Festival a total of 360 Turbosound cabinets offering a potential 523kW of programme power, formed the largest front-of-house PA. The average Sound Pressure Level at the mixing tower was 118dB, peaking at a maximum of 124dB during Iron Maiden's set. It took five days to set up the system."

    I believe this is it:

    Defining "biggest PA system" is somewhat tricky.

    Loudest? Most cabinets? Watts? (watts being an fairly irrelevant way to judge a PA btw)


    For most stuff on one stage the current U2 360 tour is hard to beat, for sheer scale and coverage the system deployed for President Obama's inauguration is way ahead.

    Yeah, much as I hate them I can't help but be impressed by the technical achievement of it. It's jam dropping in it's scale, especially when you realise they had three sets of everything, leapfrogging each other across the venues on the tour. It cost $750,000 per day to run.

    Yeah... say what you like about the band but that setup looks (and no doubt sounds) amazing
