Re: New Design Ideas??

SLA Pro 2x5" is too much in many cases. What is on the market is little or very expensive. A midpoint is necessary for the bars,restaurants, etc. For example something like this works well: https://www.l-acoustics.com/en/product/5xt/ https://lwspeakers.com/web/en/cinema-speakers/ceiling-surround-sy...

Gonna get a DBX driverack this weekend before I run it them again at a show.
You better get the limiter in place, that amp can put out double the voltage that those drivers can take.

The performance of a subwoofer is usually limited by displacement (xmax), not rms wattage rating. The B&C doesn't have much more xmax (~1mm) to justify spending almost twice the price on it.

Turns out one of the 2 front pieces has been bowed in construction.
Had that happen to me on my build too, I cut them a smidgen too long and when I put them in place they bowed in on me.

Do you have an oscillating saw? They'll un PL anything you already PL'd without making a mess.

Heavy but man does this thing hummmm.
Nice build! Hope you have a high pass and limiter set as per the plans. These things stop humming if overdriven without warning. Plenty of folks here to help you set that up if need be.

Re: Mixing Different Mouth Width Tubas

Nothing wrong with using different width cabs of the same type as they all have the same horn length. Splitting sub stacks left/right however can give you wacky bass response that changes as you move about due to an interference pattern they will create. You may get heavy bass response in one spot a...

Re: Eminence HL-10C in Tuba 24

IIRC, Tuba 24, Autotuba, Tabletuba are all good candidates.

Re: Church in a comedy club

May do really well with 2 sets of SLA cabs and then place a set mid room on a delay system that would get you good coverage on small package This is what I would consider. Low ceilings present a challenge. The front of the room not only has more volume being closer to the speakers, the audience als...

Re: Number of Drivers in Tuba

In small rooms, and by small I mean rooms where the dimensions of the room are less than the wavelengths of the frequencies produced, room modes dominate the in-room response. Room modes (peaks and valleys) are dictated by the location of the source, the position of the listener, and the dimensions ...

Re: A video about a HORN!

The video also reasonably explains what sound is - just wiggly air that wiggles your eardrums. Lots of layman think that speakers need to move lots of air when all they do is wiggle it back and forth a little bit and it's the pressure wave that carries the sound energy with the air barely moving at ...

CoronaOperator,
Is that a pressure washer in your living room?
(asking so I can justify the air compressor and T39 V-plated stack that is mine. LOL)
Yes it is, temps dropped below freezing so I had to bring it in the house, was too lazy to carry it down the stairs at the time.

Re: Tuba 45 T45 Weight & driver question

I use a non dsp crest prolight 3.0 on subs. Amazing amplifier-efficient, powerful, eats 2 ohm loads all day long and the built in limiting/clipping reducer is inaudible. Can't recommend it enough although no maxxbass on the non dsp version to play with, srry. The peavy irp2 amps are the same amplifi...

I'm also still very intrigued by the Waves MaxxBass plug in. I don't have a way to run a plug-in live (need to figure that out).
Peavy IPR2 dsp or the Crest prolite dsp amplifiers have the maxxbass plug-in right in the onboard DSP.

Re: Small sub suggestion

What would happen if I made an autotuba 1" smaller in width? Plans say 12" wide min for the 8" driver. Looking at the sketchup, seems there is plenty of room for the driver if I were to make the cabinet just a little narrower. The it would slip into the alcove perfectly. Just to be clear, I am not ...
