    My Baltimore-area high school theater was outfitted with the first quality PA system I ever worked with. It had JBL horns and cabinets in a center cluster, powered by Crown amplifiers, with a 6-channel TAPCO mixer in the sound booth and Electro-Voice 664 microphones on stage. Initially, to my finely tuned 10th grade ears, the system didn’t sound very good – the performers could barely be heard, and there was a lot of feedback.
