Some newer arenas seem to be very bright, with lots of reflective surfaces, from skyboxes, etc. How should I deal with an overly live venue?
Modern line array technology offers the best way to deal with highly reflective, reverberant large spaces. Here, it's best to fly the array as high as possible, aiming the majority of the cabinets downward to minimize the “slapback” effect. It's also important that each cabinet is vertically splayed. A flat array in the vertical plane will send too much energy toward reflective areas such as skyboxes and wall surfaces. If properly hung, the wide dispersion of acoustical energy in the horizontal plane and tight pattern control in the vertical plane will make for surprisingly good results in what have traditionally been difficult venues.
