what do you think?

Yeah, but I don't think Mal thought about phase relationship when he set up the stage. :? It simply involved aesthetics, IMO.

Check out the great interview with Glenn D. White in TapeOp #39 where he talks about setting up sound for the Beatles at the Seattle Center in '64....

Or better yet, go here for the extended version, with a great picture of John and Paul singing into an EV655C (!!!!).

I used exclamation points because those are dynamic onmis--not exactly a mic I would associate with stagework at (for those days) high volumes...

Anyway, it's an interesting read...

Oh Fuck me man!!! I am old and my patience is wearing thin. Ya know sometimes you can do a little work and do a fucking search for stuff? The internet is a glorious thing. All you young bucks out there should get up close and personal with the proverb below. Or maybe I should, I don't know anymore.

You know...if you wanted to get into a semantic argument then you could say that Strat0tele did do a search on the "glorious" internet for his answer and found it, here! The TapeOp message board is an internet based forum (natuarlly) and Stratotele was searching for the answer to his question from those who already had the answer. So in all actuality he used the most efficient means of having his question answered by posting it here, where the source of the question came from in the first place. That's just playing devils advocate and having a bit of fun though...no harm. Back to the topic at hand now gents.

Woah pal, it was just a simple question. I had a good idea of what it was and I was right, but I just wanted to see since in the discussion it was brought up.

from another site "A junction box is a box used only for connecting wires together."

There happy? Good day sir.
