    I agree. It' more like a fence.

    The goal is to make a better presentation not a bigger one. It looks like you're trying to hide and that actually makes it stand out even more.
    I'd rather see some wires than a huge black wall in front of you.

    Got these in today. They're not as bright (purple) as the cans. Makes me wonder if they're not actually more UV in them. I'm hopeful these are going to fit the bill on that frontboard. Will post some pics Saturday.

    I can get you close up pics but you are right, the material is solid. No putting subs behind it, unfortunately.

    Also, shipping to Nashville would be quite a bit.

    That ADJ truss table looks like it's going to take up a huge amount of space for hauling (doesn't hinge in the middle). How heavy is it? How much does it cost? I do like that the table is built-in.

    I like the looks of it but I'm afraid I'll still have the original problem of guests walking up and hanging their drinks over the top of it (over my laptop/mixer). That was the main reason I went with such a high frontboard (which it does the job, btw). I'm assuming you haven't actually used it yet?

    Here is Brian's gig log. He uses the ADJ event table with his own custom made sign in the middle. Beginning shows the table in the bac of his SUV.

    I personally do not like the open look of the table. You can see wires/cables too easily compared to a skirted regular table. My thought would also be to scrim the table somehow. I wouldn't buy it because it would take up too much room in my Traverse with all my other stuff.

    Nope I just ordered yesterday, in my opinion yours is way to high it makes it look like you are hiding from the guests the other advantage of adj table is that the table height is actually higher than a banquet style table

    They have a white scrim, that you should be able to uplight. No way would I want to just leave wires exposed with no scrim.

    Or drill out a hole or 3 in the tubing (might already be there) and run cables through them

    Maybe I'll build my own frontboard with cup holders all around to accommodate guests' drinks.
