You say 1000 people, that's a fair size crowd.
Power. Outdoors you will need LOTS of power. 1000s of watts for "rock show levels". With no walls to contain and reflect to sound, it goes away fast. You know this, of course.
Agreed, 1000 people is a lot. I'd say more around 150-300 people but i'd like to think it could suffice for a larger crowd.

OK, thanks for the clarification.

I still don't know it's intended use. At what type of event will you be playing music or other sounds to 150 or more people where there is no power? Maybe a Burning Man or other desert type "happening"?

Although I am now primarily a video guy, I've worked live sound events for over 40 years, many of them outside. The idea of the quick setup and integration is super cool, I just don't understand how or where it would be used.

Oh - stay away from ribbon tweeters for this, unless you plan to replace the ribbons after every show.
Take the Speaker Voltage Test!
