This is a really cool, old theatre.

I talked my way into playing here for free with comedian Donnie Baker (Bob & Tom fame) later this month. I've played here before but we opened for Here Come The Mummies, and used their PA, which had 4 dual-18 subs on either side.

We're not trying to reach 120db in the balcony, though. We just need good coverage side-to-side. I have no concern about my SLA's performing, but sub placement (4 x T-39s) in this big place? I know I probably need 4 more subs (someday). What's the best I can do with what I have?

Here's a diagram of the seating areas. Only the Orchestra seating and Terrace (standing) areas will be used.

I don't see any wall or corner fire options. There will be space available on stage, and technically I could split the subs since I can spread them beyond that magic distance of 50(ish) feet. But I prefer to keep the 4 together. I've used a V-plate for outdoor gigs with good results. Has anyone tried an endfire config with T-39s? Would that even work with 4 subs?

Well, it looks like you can't put them up in the ceiling. How about a pair standing at each end of the stage, spaced out from and, facing the wall? Would there be enough space for patrons to walk between them and the seats?

Placing them in the center isn't good with the wall being only 3.5 feet high. Split left/right on the floor against the walls would probably be best.
