Default 30 Driver CBT Line array 30 Fountek FE87 driversper array

I am just getting started on building a CBT. this will be my first big build. I am going to be doing shading using series and parallel connections and I will share my wiring diagram on here shortly. feel free to use it. My only question is more a matter of design of the array of speakers themselves. I am wanting to run two rows of 15 speakers for the array should i run them simply side by side or would there be any benefit to running them staggered?

Example:

xx
--
xx
--
xx
or
x-
-x
x-
-x
x-
-x

Did you ever get around to building this? The idea of using series parallel for shading is interesting, if it could be made to work as intended (by mr. keele)

I would strongly recommend *not* doubling up the rows and especially not staggering them. That will mess up the horizontal dispersion.

I'm also interested in these drivers for line arrays, so please update us on your progress!
