Does anyone here have any thoughts/guidance/direct experience with using amp shields to reduce stage volume? I seem to remember OneEng posting that his band turns their amps backwards but I don't recall anyone posting about using shields instead. The venue I mix for is a microbrewery "Tasting room" where folks (not uncommonly with their kids) come to meet and chat and the owner is adamant that the overall volume in the room not drive his target audience away not to mention the obvious benefit of improving the overall sound in general if the backline is not bleeding through the vocal mics. One of the other sound guys in the rotation built simple Plexiglas panels with legs for another venue he mixes at and says they work well but I thought I'd ask here for any plusses and/or minuses to consider.
