    Used many configuratons of monitors

    My favorite monitor was D or K or E 130s with a simple bullet tweet.

    There were times when a dual twelve K or E 120 and 2370/2425 type horn was better for acoustic performers.

    Too bad it was destroyed!

    I was very active in the '80s. That would have been a dream/drool studio to me when it was created.
