Last month saw Irish guitarist/vocalist Gary Moore and his band touring the UK to promote their latest album, Close As You Can Get. Front-of-house engineer Dave Wooster mixes on a Yamaha PM5D. A Martin Audio W8LC P.A. is driven by XTA DP226s and a DP448.

This tour is traditional rock 'n' roll-style blues, which needs depth but with clarity and drive. I set the EQ settings through crossovers with the XTAs and it's driving the LCs really well. The 448 gives me the option of sending two feeds to it: one for the flown system and one for the ground-stacked boxes. I can also group it down to a stereo feed and then matrix it from within the 448. Some days I have the option of running two separate EQ systems or one across the entire system. I have my own SiDD providing EQ across the stereo left and right system so I have another level of show EQ there.
