A yearly gig that I provide sound production for has changed HS football field venues this time around. In the past I have always had wall-power (one 20 amp circuit) to run my rig (rack of: one XS4300, one XTI4000, and one IT6000 all run stereo/non-bridged) for a 3-way Yorkville TX system. The DJ has had the lights "dimming with the beat" but has not tripped a breaker in past years...
All of that said, this year's event has changed venues to a HS football field where there will not be any "hard-wired" power. This event will have donated generator power for lighting a football field plus providing power for the stage.
I have powered my rack with a Honda EU3000is generator in the past with no problems, however, I have never run my rig off of an industrial (non-inverter) generator.
My question for Crown tech's (and anyone else with practical experience):
- Can my above-listed amps run on a "non-inverter" generator?
I can "cobble together" a rack of two Crown K2's and one Crown K1 to limp through the gig. (Will K1/2 amps work with non-inverter amps?) It will probably not "cut it" (be loud enough) as my regular racks/rig (with proper power) would......
Can the below-listed Crown amps be powered by a non-inverter (industrial) generator?
I never had this problem when my rig consisted of microtech amps (back in the 90's)...heavy as *beep*...but would run anywhere......
