Monitoring Delay Cubase 10 Pro (Live Sound) Sucky Components. HELP!

So I use Cubase 10 pro to livestream our churches services. So the way I have it set up is the board we use (si expression 3) sends signal through usb to Cubase 10 on my laptop. It is mixed and then sent to a stereo output back to the board and sent out the board into Boxcast (our streaming provider) The issue I am having is sometimes (not all the time) one of the channels is delayed but the other channels all are fine. The channel that is delayed seems to be random and I have tried everything I can to figure out why it seems to be doing this.

Live sound: 4x 5KW amplifier from Linea Research

Linea Research have released the latest and most powerful member of their 44M family: the 44M20. This has the mind-boggling specs of four 5KW power amplifiers in one 2U 13Kg chassis, designed for touring companies where subs have to be powered and fed independently from the mids/tops. Its main input is rated to work from 85V to 250V, although by my quick calculations the mains current draw at 85V would have be around 250A for all channels at maximum output.

Here is the Linea page on the 44M family.

Books on PRACTICAL live sound implementation?

Hello experts, jarjar reporting for duty.

¿Can you please recommend me some good books with "hands on" information about how to implement a live sound event?

I've looked. But the ones I've found on amazon always have too much theory. I have theory books. I want the "how to's", the "be careful's", the "what not to do's". All the applied stuff.

Im not reluctant of theory, but I want a practical book to understand how to implement shows at different levels from "corner cafe-type portable gig" to "Rock in Rio". Topics like:

How to solve rumbling on the stage caused by Subs?

Hello experts,

Jarjar here. Misa confused about Subs causing rumble on the stage.
I worked as stage hand to a concert last week. They had problems with this rumbling movement caused by the subs. The subs were positioned in front of the stage, piled in 6 pairs, so there were 12 subs in total. But the vibration the subs caused was annoying for the musicians on stage.

Mobile Live Sound Rig (half rack space unit)

Starting in January, I am going to be going into schools with one other guy and putting on presentations. We need a small, portable system to drag around with us that is easy to set up and strike. We need two inputs for each of our headsets, two more for each of our guitars, one for playing music, and one for miscellaneous. Here is my idea. I want to use a unit like this:

New live sound / remote rig? PreSonus 16.0.2

You know how one "sensible" purchase can lead to another, which can lead to another... Well I might be getting started on one of those spirals. One of the bands I'm in is probably going to be playing a lot of local gigs in small venues where we have to provide the sound support and mix from the stage. I'm thinking of replacing my A&H mixwiz and a couple of dbx equalizers with PreSonus 16.0.2. Much more versatile rig and much smaller footprint - and the sale of old equipment will keep the cost pretty low. It's only 12 preamps, so that's a constraint.
