Corporate Audio Engineer
Sure I was skeptical because I love my Meyers speakers but for the corporate events I produce the L1 is a great product. I hit the L1 (mono) out of a Yamaha MGP24X which has a Shure ULXD Quad wireless mic set plus a couple of inputs for laptop sound, ipods sound and sometimes a podium mic. My venues are generally 50' wide and 70" deep +/- and using 2 L1's I have been very happy with the coverage. I was concerned about feedback due speaker placement and presenters moving around but I have not had ANY issues. Of course it is still critical to balance your console gain and mic output gain but that is common with all speaker systems. Get the bass unit even if your only doing talking head gigs. My only EQ adjustment was to bring out the mids for a little warmer sound. I have not used them for large events with venues up to 100'x300'. But I believe that 4 of the L1's would cover it. I still recommend Meyers for the Third Day / Rolling Stones concerts but for corporate gigs, small/medium churches and trade shows the L1 is now my product of choice.
