Re: Behringer Wing announcement

Just FYI, This thigh showed up in the dealer portal recently. None in stock yet, but it would seem they’re serious about a January ship date.

Re: Behringer Wing announcement

THANK YOU BRENT!!!! Bookmarked and saved. Now I need a 32 channel board to accommodate this. The ui24r had my attention for awhile now but i really want physical faders as well as laptop\ipad control, mixing outdoors on a screen is a royal pia with the glare from the sun. This Wing looks interestin...

Re: Behringer Wing announcement

I do a lot of work where there are 5-10 bands/acts that I never heard of before with 15 minute changeovers so typical combat audio. An act halfway through the changeover now insists on stereo micing the guitar amp, another final act on me changed over the drum kit unannounced (they were there besid...

Re: Behringer Wing announcement

Also, after further looking, it appears that there may not be dedicated FX return channels like the X 32 has. This would mean that all 8 Aux inputs could quickly become filled with effects returns. Long story short, you have a console with about the same number of mix channels as the x32 but better ...

Re: Behringer Wing announcement

It’s got a few things going for it. Lots of toys, and some nifty IO options. It’s also very complex, and things with such a level of complexity lead to more points of failure, or at least confusion. I wouldn’t call it a $30k mixer . It’s still Behringer. Its $3500 MAP at the moment. There HAS to be ...

Re: Dr 250 Handles...

Mine had handle holes cut in corners of the false back over the curved part of the horn path. The builder even put a piece of quarter round mounding in there for a comfort grip. It doesn’t get sturdier than that and they don’t stick out.

Re: Found a typo

:bash: If we’re being picky, isn’t the language “102db / watt” technically incorrect also? That reads as 102db per watt... if so, do you get 204db with 2 watts? :loler:

Re: Wedding gig advice

Use 12 gauge extension cords, you’ll be fine. “Clean” power is a bit of a myth. Voltage drop is the real enemy and 12 gauge takes care of that. If you have two sets of tops, use one for the ceremony (the lighter set if you have to carry it) and have the other set ready to go for the reception. No su...

Re: blown driver issues

Thermal damage comes from heat. Heat is generated by current, measured in watts. This is why drivers are advertised with a power rating in watts rather than volts. The excursion limit comes as much from the cabinet as it does from the driver. Excursion is directly correlated to voltage. This is why ...

Re: blown driver issues

#1. Certain amps without a speaker attached can output far more voltage than they can drive into a load without crapping out. A reading over 100v isn’t uncommon with no load. #2. LImiters are only a protection against overexcursion. A speaker can fail from thermal damage even if it never reaches its...

Re: Can't find specs on obscure eminence driver??

I can tell you from experience with the Yamaha drivers that they don’t have the same midrange response that the stock betas do. I can’t say for that speaker specifically, but it seems to be the trend.

Re: On Board Amp

Regarding the amps... amps intended for specifc cabs often have DSP curves designed for that particular cabinet. Probably not a great choice for DIY.

Re: Small Church - Crazy Quest

Distributed systems can work very well, but they're a PITA to install, with all the wiring and impedance concerns. That’s why we have 70v and 100v transformers. On a constructive note... not all distributed systems require delays and alignment. in fact, most don’t. The only ones that do are when yo...
