Re: THTLP Amplifier

Bruce, thanks. I will have to research how to do that..the wiring part.....Running multiple subs off one plate amp. Thanks! As Bill said, you still have to make sure that you have the proper impedance match between the amp and the speakers. It will most likely require multiple plate amps if you run...

Re: THTLP Amplifier

I'd probably get one of these, for the DSP. https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-spa250dsp-250w-subwoofer-plate-amplifier-with-dsp--300-8010 I am thinking. I am wanting to run 4 of these. Can they be made passive subs and all 4 be powered by an or multiple external amps? I am am a noob so I h...

Re: 1/4 inch connectors: airtight?

I specifically want to use the passive crossover with a single amp in some situations, and an external one in others. It doesn't have to be an either or situation. Whether you use an active crossover or not there's no reason to not use the low pass coil in the T24. The optional bypass of the coil i...

The 3010HO is very slightly higher in midrange sensitivity and xmax than the 2510, but IMO not enough to make it worth the higher price. If it had a 6mm xmax then I'd say it's worthwhile.
That's what I needed to hear. Thanks.

The 3010HO is built on the new round 3010 frame, but the specs are the same as the previous version, so it's suitability or lack of same is the same as before.
This just came up for me....... so, would the new 3010HO be a good fit for a DR250? It's pretty far out on Vas.

Re: OTop 12 J Array Front Grill + Foam

Question...we plan to use air conditioner foam on the backs of the grills to keep dust out. The plans call for gasket tape on the leading edge of the horns to prevent vibrations. Is that still necessary with the foam backing the grills? Keep the grills from touching the horns if possible. If they d...

Speaker choice for a Jack 12 Bass cab

The bass player in my new band is wanting me to build him a couple of Jacks......his tone is old-school and doesn't want a tweeter..... My plan was to use the 3012HO (but, I have two 2512s in stock). I want to make sure he has plenty of headroom and xmax. We never have PA support and he currently us...

Re: Omnitop12 phase plug diameter

The Eminence specs are assuming a much more shallow slope than the crossover in the plans. The steeper slope of Bill's passive crossover allows the driver to go lower without causing a problem. Just make sure you use a 24db/octave or more when setting the crossover and you'll be ok at 1.2khz. I just...

Ray Charles is one of my favourite country artists.
hmmmmm......sang some country songs his way, but not really a country artist. Don't remember him ever charting anything on the country charts. Several on the regular Billboard over the years, though.

I had that problem early on, until I learned how little you should be using, and that you must cap the tube immediately after laying down the bead.
I always let off the pressure on the piston of the caulk gun.....still a little ooze, but not much.

So a Jack 10. is the Deltalite II 2510 the premium driver, 8 ohm?
You are playing a Low B Bass......I'd go with the Jack 12 using a 3012HO.

2510 xmax - 4.2
2512 xmax - 4.9
3012 xmax - 6.2

The extra excursion is well worth it if you are going low and hitting it very hard.
