I've spent the last two years playing bass almost every weekend in a band that always hires sound, including a few venues with installed house systems. All of these companies have pretty large and expensive systems, and most of the "engineers" know their business pretty well. Recently, I've joined a second band and have been using my own rig. This is a fairly typical, moderately loud, 4 piece 90's rock band.

Saturday, I corner loaded a single 24" 3015 T48 and set up a pair of melded OT12's 3012 loaded. The sound quality was amazing and I had more volume than we would ever need in that room. We barely had the master off the deck. It had been a while since I had the chance to use my own system. I was really pleased by how much better it sounded than the "pro" systems we've been using in the other band, including in this same room. The bass was clean and full, the vocals and other instruments clear and detailed. I'll be doubling the cab counts for a multi-band show outside later this summer, and really looking forward to showing off what these can do. I'd like to add a couple more T48's for the outside work, but I've already tested it with some prerecorded tracks and know that two will absolutely get the job done as long as the volume isn't stupid.

Yep.....it is amazing just how good these boxes sound. When you add the second pair of OT12s, it will be even better.

But, definitely add more subs for outside.

Yes, I often run two per side with a straight array on top of the melded. Stunning how good they sound. I usually have to cut the tops about -6 dB if I only use a single T48.

Didn't realize you already had 4 of 'em. I always run all 4, regardless of the number of subs needed - they just sound smoother when two of 'em start dancing together....
