Re: Tuba HT as sound reinforcement

Robin, You have made several comments referencing voltage and wattage in a way that would lead one to believe you may not completely understand how they matter as far as speakers are concerned. Simply put, driver excursion is driven by voltage, and watts are consumed in the process depending on the ...

Re: Spring Cleaning - XTI Amps and other miscellaneous...

For the used 6.5s... $10 for the Pyles, $20 for the Emis (in quantity). I didnt understand this part,are you asking $10 each for the 6.5"s ? Yes, $10ea for the used pyles, $20ea for the used eminence. (Plus shipping). Kind of assuming that anyone around here is going to be buying them in quantity. ...

Re: A Second First Date (DR200s with Ribbons)

Hey BE; Which ribbons did you use? That vid sounds great..... Jujuman Dayton PT2C-8, 2 per cab in series. Spacing was done so that when stacked, the individual ribbons are equidistant. This means they're cheated slightly to the outside from perfect center on the cab. Are there any issues with the r...

Re: Cinco de Mayo gig

I think everyone missed the funny part. his rig is 12,000 watts. we plugged my system and lights into the one provided extension cord for both band and DJ, his rig is 12,000 watts. No. No, it was not. Would have been great to school him on that a bit. Of course he was probably using the standard “ad...

Re: speakon mounting question

That's an option, but so is the method in the plans. Hot melt glue is adequate to fasten them. That's why there are no fasteners shown in the sketchup. Until they break or a connector snaps off inside them, then you’ve got a mess. There’s a reason there are mounting holes on them, and it’s not to m...

Spring Cleaning - XTI Amps and other miscellaneous...

It’s that time of year, and I need to move a few things to raise cash for other projects, gear repairs, etc. I have 3 XTI amps that would probably serve someone around here well (as well as a number of other amps and misc. EQs, effects units, etc.). I’m Going to start with a few today, and go throug...

Re: Behringer NX6000 vs Qsc GX7

So Qsc would be the choice Thanks GX7 is far more versatile than the NX6000 but on shore power the performance is fairly similar. Only on generator will you see a huge difference. Reliability is about the same. I have a GX and two NUs in my shop right now that need to go to warranty repair. The num...

Re: Brand dormancy

Most people around here probably realize that you can't tell squat from a YouTube video. I made one way back when, it still gets a comment here and there (just had one the other day). It never did the rig justice. The reality is that most people make videos of their audio gear to show off how much t...

Re: What is going on here?

Indeed. The newer ones do all the famous Hammonds... a100,b3,c3, etc, along with emulation of every type of Leslie cab ever made. Hammond even has one with 88keys and a pretty good ser of piano patches. Id live to have one but they're relatively pricey.

Re: What is going on here?

IDK, maybe out front though the PA or on a recording. When you stand next to a leslie the sound gets sprayed around the room, highs and lows in different directions all spinning around and bouncing off the walls and different surfaces. The doppler effect could easily be reproduces but no way you co...

Re: What is going on here?

These days it’s rare to tour with a real one, but the Leslie sound is well sampled and synthesized by various keyboards. Hammond (now part of Suzuki) still sells digital organs that have controls very similar to the B3 but do all,of the synthesis digitally and are virtually indistinguishable sonical...

Re: Calling all Karaoke gurus

Yeah. I’ve never run it but that all that sounds about right. I’d get something like an Xr12 so you can have IPad control and some decent effects. Don’t use wireless mics, or even good mics. They’ll get destroyed. Buy some $20 mics (behringer’s xm1800 and 8500 are decent for karaoke and cheap). Keep...

Re: Calling all Karaoke gurus

Using YouTube videos violates their TOS and is a great way to have a failure during a show. If you do a subscription service, make sure you are paying for an appropriate level of service. Some of them offer a “home” license which would not cover public performance like that. A client of mine uses Ka...

Re: Question for signal processing gurus

Ok, you have an analogue mixer (or two), cool. Set up a compressor to duck the music channels (if you're not sure how, google it, there's lots of info on the net about ducking) but add EQ as well to the input side of the compressor, tailored to vocals frequencies only. You should be able to get tha...

Re: Monitor Impedance

Impedance between woofers and tweeters (when used properly, i.e. with a crossover) does not sum or cancel. Impedance is variable with frequency. If you use an 8 ohm woofer and a 16 ohm tweeter with a properly designed crossover at 2.5khz, for instance, the cab will be 8 ohms nominally below 2.5khz a...
