I need to pick the brains of people who are more experienced/skilled than I am.
I run sound at a stand up comedy venue. When I started, the gig was quite small and held outdoors, under a marquee. The venue owner has since built a large hall and I will need to expand my set-up, but am not sure what equipment to get or what the best solution will be.
I have not made a measurement, but I reckon the hall is about 50m x 15m (based on length of signal cable I had to run). It also has a high roof made of galvanised corrugated metal.
My concern is this: I’ve been using a pretty basic set-up (desk, 4 active speakers + mics/devices etc). If I need to expand, can I just add 2 speakers, or will the extra speakers or distance involved cause delays, or will the signal not be strong enough?
As it is, getting the EQ right has been a challenge and I feel as if I don’t have much headroom in the system.
What can I do to produce decent quality sound (vocal) while minimising feedback in a cavernous venue?
