Fourth of July is coming up, and we're doing music for the parade off a 1990's Dodge flat-bed truck.
PA system (2000 watts)
Generator (3500 watts) (Gas powered) - if you need exact model I can get it
I have safety concerns.
- The diesel truck fumes on top of the output from the generator might be a lot of carbon monoxide. I can only sit about 5 or 6 feet away from the generator at most. The best I can do is point it off the back. We're driving slow, maybe even stopped at times...
Power requirements. Is watts all I have to care about? I'm going to have in ear monitors hooked up to this system. I don't want to get shocked to death because it spikes or damage equipment because it can't handle it. How do I test how much power this system is using?
- People have mentioned purifying the "dirty power" from the generator. Not sure what that means?
This may not be worth it, which is a bummer. I'd like to do it if I can safely.
