Re: DIY Rack Patch Panel Q

I've had some of those tiny screws on speakon cconnectors come loose and cause problems. Anyone got a fix for that? Loctite or hot glue? Gotta' say that I've only had one cable pull loose from a speakon and that was from some numbskull trying to help me tear down by pulling on the cable....really h...

Re: NEW BUILD - Omni 15 Tall Boy in New Zealnd

I already have the birch 12 ply I'd like to have some foam attached behind my mesh grill to keep dust, dirt and gunk out. 12 ply is typically 3/4" .....should be 1/2" or 9 ply......unless things are different down under. Use the thin foam that is used in window air-conditioning units. Cheap and wor...

Re: blown driver issues

Where did you get that 122 volt reading? That would be an amp rated at 1860 watts at 8 ohms...... you sure you have your meter set correctly? What model amp is it? Exactly. The QSC GX7 is rated 725wpc. Suppose it may put that out in a bridged configuration. Dunno. You can't bridge the GX series amp...

Re: blown driver issues

My processor is locked,no one can tamper with that and I have a piece of tape at unity gain on my channel faders and master fader on my mixer. What's to stop them from just turning up the gain on the channel strip? That's assuming that your board has Gain and a fader. I really don't know what kind ...

Ode to Bluespoet, a poem in blue's




In my bus, it's a fuss
My music is highly worth it
Not too much pizazz
Soft acoustic Jazz
on my patio will be perfect
Wouldn't ya' know it....Seth is a poet. His feet are regular Longfellows.

Re: PA2 limiter setting question

Are you saying that the PA and PA+ do, in fact, have dbx PeakPlus™ type limiters? You tell us what peakplus means first, lol Without spending time going through the manuals......here's my take. Peak plus is a term that Crown uses to tout the limiters on their amps - which of course mean nothing to ...

Re: PA2 limiter setting question

I've always turned off the Over Easy selection. When I test my limiters on my PA and PA+, they don't overshoot when I hammer the master fader.

Tapped his strings on the off beat, tone slap tone slap tone slap and the string noise was very present. That happens more than you might think. Most times it's not too noticeable. But, when it it......Mike and I were providing sound one evening outside and both our heads jerked up at the same time...

Re: 2 x Tuba 45 build

Probably has two rectangular holes in it. That's used with drivers other than the Lab12....or any driver with FS above 35hz. I can't tell what driver that is, but it doesn't look like a Lab 12. Gotcha, I've never put anything other than a Lab12 in a sub so I wasn't aware of any differences in the p...

Re: What's to chat about?

Bass is either DI box or DI from their amp.. always choose Pre-EQ is there's a button for it. I never mic bass amps. Do you find that you pull the tweeter frequencies out altogether, or make any purposeful attempt to get the sound to "mimic" what a typical bass cab sounds like? Well, you'd have to ...

A question because I'm not sure if I'm seeing things right but in the last image, the panel marked P5, does it have a rectangular hole in it? Probably has two rectangular holes in it.

Re: What's to chat about?

Thanks for sharing all that Bruce. Do you ever have an electric guitar or bassist just run a DI signal, without an amp? Bass is either DI box or DI from their amp.. always choose Pre-EQ is there's a button for it. I never mic bass amps. I've never had to take an electric direct with a DI box, but c...

Bill brought up, in another thread about bass cabinets, something about reproducing frequencies above 5k sounding like ass with distortion... and a few other related comments. Rather than muddy up that thread, I figured I'd use my fancy new open discussion thread to ask the question of you guys. Re...

Re: DIY Rack Patch Panel Q

I just got all the parts in to make my 8 connector patch panel for my main rack. I'll be using speakons and xlr's first then add power connectors later. My question is, should I wire the speakon patch cables with 14ga dual-conductor shielded cable or use 12ga single-conductor wire (and then twist t...
