Re: Jack 15 TKOs Peavey

Funny. My thought was... I wonder if that's golf or tennis?

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

Here's what I've been able to dig up; Based on 12awg speaker wire and a capacitance of 15.24pF per Ft (standard value in the calculator I found), high frequency rolloff will be down 3dB at the following frequences & lengths. 50' -3dB @ 25,601.14Hz 60' -3dB @ 21,251.75Hz 63.66' -3dB @ 20,001.6Hz 70' ...

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

I don't now or have ever owned a 100 foot speaker cable.... Nor should you. Even if the resistance losses are tolerable with that much length capacitance and inductance both will result in significant high frequency losses. Bill, Purely out of curiosity and the sake of learning yet another valuable...

Re: Bass reflex 18 more efficient than a Tuba 24?

You can build a Kappalite 3015lf in a reflex box weighing about 50lbs and taking less time and effort to build, use less wood and be more sensitive and handle more power. I'm not sure why you'd bother with a T24 apart from liking the look of a mini folded horn. Not a bad point. I think you should g...

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

Nor should you. Even if the resistance losses are tolerable with that much length capacitance and inductance both will result in significant high frequency losses. What's a reasonable maximum length? The shortest length of cable to get to where you are going. If you have to go more than about 50 fe...

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

2 - 100', 4 - 50', AND 4 - 25' for roughly $260. It's about $150 more to do them in 4 conductor wire and 4 pole connectors. I don't now or have ever owned a 100 foot speaker cable....ya'll must be running some awfully wide stages! I wouldn't suggest using the knock-off speakons....the tolerances on...

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

Build your own. Speakons use screw terminals, so no soldering. Buy the ends and bulk cable....it's cheaper and you can get the exact lengths you want. Exactly where I was going :thumbsup: For $180 you could buy 2 pre-assembled 50' 12/2 speaker cords. Or, you can buy 500 foot spool of 12/2 for $200,...

That will likely be partsexpress brand which gets good reviews.
Is that the Pro Co brand stuff you're talking about? $89 for 50' 12/2 speakon to speakon?

Re: Car integration - how to

Not sure about the availability in the UK, but I put one of these DSP units in my truck... Between a $20 Duel head unit and a mini Class D 5 channel amp running very cheap mix-matched mids and tweeters along with an 8" Bazooka.
