Re: Omni 10 No More?

The omni 10 was replaced by the Jack 10. IMO get the new plans. The 10.5 was never an "official" design and was just an omni 10 cut in half by a user(which caught on btw) and as was such never really designed from the get go to be used as a single driver as such it had limitations. The Jack 10 resol...

Re: Trivia question

The spiders on the drivers are very sensitive to water, they tend to lose their accordion shape when they get wet. Unless the factory had a coating on them :fingers: . As was mentioned, the surface of the wood would swell. Dry them out and sand them down with a random orbital sander, then duratex (o...

Re: Help with a church sound setup

our main sound guy said that it's really hard to fill up the low mids, and apparently with the PRX612M's he said there's really no low mids. He'd prefer to have a setup with a 15" driver that throws down to 90Hz (I'm parroting back what he's said nearly word-for-word, so excuse if I have no idea wh...

Re: Low output

Are you linking a dual 4 ohm driver cab and a dual 8 ohm cab together? Have you measured the DC resistance of each cab? I think it's been said in the past, have you measured output of each cab? Or are you just guessing? If you are going to go there then I would measure the DC resistance of each dri...

Re: Low output

Check the drivers polarity, hook up a 9 volt battery, both cones should move the same direction.

Re: Maximizing pack space and performance, under budget.

Remember that the VD is based on Excursion. Since they are limited to the same 50V they will perform the same. Basically both speakers are being limited. If you think like a gear head, If you have a 350 with a rev limit of 6k and another at 7k, both could hit 5500 RPM or both are limited to 50V eve...

Re: Truck Tuba Car Sound Quality Questions

Corona Operator: And yes, the equipment from 20 years ago seems a lot better than what is generally offered today. My .02 cents but maybe I am just old. Today, what you will find is much better processing; including time delay, better EQ's, higher x-over slopes etc. Do some research on your amps, t...

Re: Truck Tuba Car Sound Quality Questions

You get 12 dB/octave gain (cabin gain) in any space that is smaller than 1 wavelength. For an SUV that gain starts around 55 hz or so. So you get lots of free bass below that. So what the trucktuba's f3 is outside the vehicle will be very different from that inside the vehicle. I don't have any expe...

Re: T39 Spacing?

One of the benefits of a permanent install that you don't normally get with a mobile gig is that you have the time and access to the space to try out all possible locations. Put your subs on a dolly, grab some volunteers, order pizza and play some tunes. Some spots will drastically sound better than...

Re: Car Door speaker baffles

If you look at the pictures you will note that he used damping material on the doors, which helps the lower frequencies. It does by adding mass but it's main purpose as a dampener is to eliminate ringing, sort of like holding a bell in your hand and hitting it as opposed to striking it while hangin...

Re: 250 Hz Bump?

Can you move your mains further away from the back wall,try for 3 feet? Looks like boundry loading from 125-300hz from the mains being so close to the back wall. Above that the mains would be directional and wouldn't get that bump. If you can't move the mains, then EQ that out. I would also try reve...

Re: Car Door speaker baffles

Stupid question time, Are those foam cup shaped baffles for car speakers useful at all? Other than protection from in-door weather, It seems like they'd be too deep and squish, or that puncturing them to run wire would compromise their function somehow. Yes they are useful, they keep water from rui...

I'm ordering mic stands and cables today. It was commented earlier that K&N Stands are good.
Many brands start out fine but the K&N's are the are the only brand that can take the stage abuse and last. You will be replacing the others after a couple dozen shows.
