Is there anyway to get more mids out of dr280s? I have 4 in total stacked 2 of them have 3012ho woofers all with melded array. And I feel like the mids are lacking. I don't get much air out of the port holes and the louder I go only makes the highs ear shattering. I even turned it down to 16khz to get rid of some of the extreme highs. I run 4 off a gx5.
The problem is everyone has a different interpretation of what "mids" are. If you can't find the resolution of the problem with a third octave EQ, then you may try the CD horn.
If you are talking about the area in the 1-2k range, I know that I hear a warmer sound out of the CDs than I do with the melded array. But, that's with the NSD2005s that are crossed at 1.2k. I don't think you'd get much by trying the ASD1001 as they are pretty much crossed in the same place as the melded array.
Certainly, I'd examine the EQ before tearing up the cabs.
Now, if you are talking about mids as being down in the 300-600hz range, then that's strictly an EQ issue.
