How many cabs is too many for playing live? I saw a band in concert tonight at the starland ballroom in NJ which or a good sized club venue of about 2500 people capacity. They were using jmps but had twelve 4 x 12 cabs on stage. The only cab that was miked was one partially hidden on the side of stage. Does having that many cabinets on stage really help the sound at a gig? I understand having a backup but I wonder if they are just dummy cabs for show.
