A closer look shows them under a chain-fall and some sort of hanging bar. It is not clear what the chain-falls are attached to, though. :?:

Not sure but this is DEF not photoshopped. Thats not your average portable structure.

Do you know who owns the rig, or who took the picture?

If you could hear an Omnipresent present being, im pretty sure this is what it would sound like. It changed my life and the way I perceive sound. I can't wait to replace my SA1232s with DR280s :hyper:. I do really like the SA1232s though. They do sound damn good either alone at house parties or cut @ 100hz and mated to 2x T60s. 4x T60s @ war volume requires support from the SRM450s.

This rig is also what makes me ask, is it better to Line T60s or cube them? obviously with 6-12 the answer is both, but what about for 4?

depends on application. outdoors, I'd cube (more coverage). Indoors its a tossup, but if you cant wall loaded, I might go for line in front of the stage (to cut down on wall reflections above 80hz). as the stack gets wider, the output at 90 degrees from the stack decreases (and as you raise frequency, it decreases more).

Dang, it looks like they used to have a dozen T36's and swapped them for the T60's. I guess they must be doing pretty well!

It's too bad they're out in Portland, I'd love to hear that. Why are all the big T60 rigs not in the midwest? *pout*
