You can spot a professional live sound installation because everything is racked up and within easy reach from the engineer’s stool. Configuring your booth should be an exercise in efficiency, with a place for everything and everything in its place. When you're mixing live sound night after night, it's hard on your body if you have to contort to reach everything. And when you've suddenly got a blast of feedback rattling ear drums, you need to be able to make adjustments quickly. Picking up a set of rack ears for your mixer makes a huge difference. In fact, it's one of the most cost effective ways to enhance your system.
When you're doing live sound for outdoor events and festivals, it's essential that you're able to setup and teardown your PA as quickly and efficiently as possible. You want to be able to safely unload and place your mixer and immediately pop the top of the case off and start plugging in your gear. Getting your mixer's rack ears and mounting it in a sturdy case or rack improves your efficiency and protects your investment.
