    I thought you might get a kick out of my rig. A&H Qu-16 with case and two Turbosound Inspire ip2000 column array speakers.

    Yes. Thankyou for your time.
    It looks a great easy simple rig for smaller venues.
    Im curious about these upper speakers?
    I dont know anything about them…
    Do you find, as a bass player they pruduce the sound enough of ‘what you want to hear’ out of them? Lower and upper mids?
    Is this system ‘The Rig’ a set system with a crossover or processor built in….?
    I do know Bose so something similair.
    I’ll have to look into them.
    Thanks
    best

    Well, “smaller venues” highly depends on the program. I already outed myself to use a similar setup (LD Maui28 with dual Subs each side) and got my rant for it. In fact these are quite perfect for my needs, quickly set up, homogeneous sound everywhere even in complicated rooms with a nearly flat EQ. For a wide stage as in the pics they need some support with nearfills, though.
    This setup works excellent with any type of acoustic sources up to jazz, maybe not too loud rock bands. I won’t try metal and similar with it, even in smaller rooms. From the Specs I guess the Turbosound IP2000 are similar.
    Btw: I’ve tried to mount the Mauis upside down as shown in the first pic without success. Maybe that’s some special option from the Turbos… 😉

    Hi NZdave…to be honest these Turbosound ip2000s with the A&H Qu-16’s stock acoustic bass PEQ (tweaked slightly) setting gives me a better sound than anything I’ve used over the years for upright bass. I’ve done a few gigs over the past month using the rig. I had a percussionist on one side of a speaker with the overhead mic at ~7 feet up and only 2-3′ from the cab and it didn’t feed back. My vocal mic was directly in front of it and I was essentially standing in front of it with the bass. We had acoustic guitar, mandolin & 2 vox mics in front of the other cab and were playing “party loud” on St. Patrick’s Day in a local roadhouse pub (tight squeeze/no monitors). It worked great. Side note: I love recallable preamps! I like this rig in my studio (reduced bleed vs. conventional cabs) since we are recording as of late without headphones. I agree with Andreas regarding limitations of the rig, but most of the venues we play in require patrons to be able to carry on conversations (winery, microbrewery, etc.).
