Were the gain knobs on the amp at full, or only high enough to read 55 volts on the meter?
YES sir @ whines ThanksSetting a voltage in this fashion is asking for trouble, and it's not voltage limiting. Say some dude decides you're not loud enough, grabs the amp attenuators, and winds them to max. I'm pretty sure you can work out what happens next.
@ Grant Bunter (fixed that for you)
- I did what Whines is asking about.
I slowly increased the gain on the amp to get to 55 volts when I bridged the RMX 2450. I made a little mark to remember the spot. It was about 9:30 on the Amp. Can I do it this way and be sure not to increase the amp? No, refer to my answer above.
When I did it this way the 55 V output at the amp remained the same even if I went past clipping on the mixer. I am not sure about maxing out the gains plus I may eventually have different amps with different power ratings.Sure, but it's not voltage displacement limiting, and that's one of the features that you bought a driverack to do.
Go back to your plans and re read and thoroughly understand "protecting your drivers".
Especially the bit about transients. They happen to fast to read on a multimeter, but that is one of the things that will blow your drivers.
When you've set things up properly, you should see the limiter light come on at 55V.
If you change amps, go back and start all over again with limiting.
What Amp would you recommend for my bass set up now to run 4 ohm stereo on these 2 bins?Something with say 70V output at 4 ohms per channel, about 1200W.
I liked the logic of using even 2 XLS 1500 or 2002 in Bridged mode so if one goes out then I still have some bass. Instead of relying on 1 amp for all my bass needs. Told you I have been reading for a couple hours...lolNot really lol, you must have missed:
Some people regularly bridge for subs. The person who immediately springs to mind is Bruce Weldy.
He will tell you he's not had any problems doing that, but he is also a super experienced SE with years, no, decades, under his belt, and knows (more often than not hehehehe) exactly what he is doing. That's not the case with you.
If you can get amps that prevent having to bridge, and still have enough output, that's got to be a good thing right?
