 I dont use it for small stuff or personal use usually. Is it a time saver, yes. Especially if your're a meticulous rental operator who practice's covering your exposed cables to prevent a tripping hazard.  I use it mostly when I am chaining multiple speakers together. Especially if I pull out the subwoofer to play.

I just purchased a new low power FM transmitter for my D-I operation.. Very nice unit under $200.00 well built. Range is very good with a nice clear signal. Unit can be tuned for your freq.. Plan to put in service this Sat. for a car show/D-I movie night.

Well it was a perfect night for a Drive-in movie.
Our pre show music was from the late 50's early 60's to set the tone for the nights movies
It was a double feature program. the 2 black and white movies ran about 65 min. each. I showed my orig. IT'S Intermmision  Time Clock between the 2 features.
 The 40' screen was set up on 2 42'flat bed trailer (perfect for this size screen). We used our FM transmitter so the folks could sit in their cars plus speakers.
Had about 75 cars show up plus walk ins. Very nice crowd. (This event was for car club members only). In the fall they will hold an other one and open it to the public.

My 8500 lumins pj was perfect for this size screen

It was a great night.

Here's my setup from the weekend.





Setup was breeze. And everything ran as expected. The customer just wanted to play music videos  from YouTube so I put my chRomecast into party mode and everyone was able to add video's to the queue.

We even did a little karaoke towards the end of the night.

I will be investing in some cam jams for the tie downs, or learn better knots. The clips that came with the screen are a complete joke.

I need more gigs, this stuff is just too much fun.

I can't imagine moving/wiring up all that gear for a backyard event. I have two passive speakers and a 4U rack with everything pre-wired (except the projector). Once the screen is up, it takes 5 minutes to get everything else in place. Here's a pic of it indoors so you can see everything easily. I use the exact same system with OAC 12' and Loch 200" screens as well.

Now I own eight commercial rental screens ranging from 9x5 to 30x17!

We should have a meetup and do competitions as to who can have a working movie setup the fastest. I'm telling you: passive speakers and pre-wired rack cases will change your life.

My rack is pre wired. It just needs power and the snake hooked up. The sub's are passive and just use speakon connections. My audio is big but easy to hook up.

My systems are in racks. The backyard set up 1 small console ( blu-ray, audio mixer, wireless mic) HDMI to PJ, 1 audio cable to each speaker.  Rear projection Everything behind the screen.

The Drive-in theatre set up is a whole different ball of wax. My crew can still set it up in an hour. In the set up above the screen was set up on two (2) 42' flatbed trailers.
