Any tips for a situation like this:
Our PA was used in a large Venue and put to the limit.
- When doing soundcheck and playing a recorded reference track (e.g. modern rocksong with the usual over-the-top compression) everything sounds fine and whit e real punch in the bottom.
- However switching to live band suddenly the PA Subs start to clip and we are nowhere near the same pressure or punch as the reference track. I can't see on our X32 that any signal is clipping. But on the sub speakers the indicator for clipping is lit.
What am I doing wrong?
- I had an EQ on the mains out and ended up cutting heavily in the bass freq. to get rid of the clipping.
One idea that came to mind afterwords was to put in a limiter on the X32 just before the mains. Are that common?
Any tips is appreciated.
The PA is HK Audio Pulsar PL112FA & PL118 Sub A
