Which DR for me?

#1 Post by Bill Fitzmaurice » Sun Mar 25, 2012 1:41 pm

How close is your audience? The closer your audience the wider the dispersion you need. The DR200 and DR250 both have an average horizontal dispersion of 120 degrees, the DR280 90 degrees, the DR300 60 degrees. If a goodly percentage of your audience is within 30 feet of the PA go with the DR200 or DR250. If your audience is beyond 30 feet, you have an average audience size of more than 800, and you have at least a two-man crew, DR300 will work. If your situation is in between those extremes consider DR280.
