Re: melded or compression

When I run my DR's stacked I like to run them on separate amp channels even though they are both CD's. That way I can run the top boxes louder with a bit more hf energy than the bottom ones. It really evens out the spl level and hf energy level throughout the room. Hadn't thought of that. That soun...

Re: melded or compression

I don't think the physical length of the hf horn is long enough to support a lower x-over point on the DR250. FYI there is nothing wrong with the asd1001 in the dr250, a little eq and they sound fantastic. I have yet to hear a better sounding commercial cab. That's good information to have CoronaOp...

Re: melded or compression

Thanks Bruce. Maybe Bill will see this and chime in.
I'm fine with the crossover changes. When you run them at 1.2k, what slope are you using? 18db or all the way up to 24dB/Octave.

Re: melded or compression

Thanks for that Bruce. That's good to know. I like the idea of mixing the two but didn't want to add any more amp channels and complexity if I could help it. Next question... (might warrant a new thread, but here goes) You seem to be a big fan of those NSD2005's. I have some half-way started DR250's...

Re: melded or compression

You guys that are mixing CD's and Melded arrays in your stack - do you power them with separate amp channels in order to be able to EQ them separately?
How are your RTA'ing that and are you still able to run any "AutoEQ" in that scenario?
Thanks,
Tim

Re: Simplexx 10 as a studio monitor?

Thanks for the update Stephen. I'm looking forward to see how things progress. Leland is a great builder. He built a pair of my T39s directly and I think I also bought a pair 2nd hand that he may have built. Class act. You'll do fine building your own. As is always said here: Take your time/don't ru...

Re: Simplexx 10 as a studio monitor?

Makes sense Bill. Thanks. I may build up a set of these (I might lean toward the 12" since I've already had great success with the other 12" Simplexx offerings for Key and Bass rigs) once my other projects have been knocked out. OP, please let us know how it works out if you decide to move forward w...

Re: Simplexx 10 as a studio monitor?

I'd be very interested to hear about how this turns out. I've been wanting some mid-sized coaxial monitors for my studio for a while. I always wanted some of those older Urei's with that Blue high frequency horn sticking out from the woofer... Should have bought some back when studios were throwing ...

Re: Simplexx 15 Pro Sub weight

I certainly appreciate the sage advice. Obviously you guys have been around the block a few times. Absolutely - it will be abused, that's why I was considering the Simplex for this particular duty. I agree - the 3015 is on the expensive side (to my pocket), but in that cabinet it will be super easy ...

Re: Church in a comedy club

Anyone looked at these neo's as a suitable replacement for the SLA Pro's: https://www.parts-express.com/prv-audio-6mb250-ndy-neodymium-6-1-2-midbass-woofer-8-ohm--294-2701 Specs are within reason, and at 1/3rd the weight of the Alpha's and still a whole pound less per driver than the new Alphalites ...

Re: Church in a comedy club

Most basic pa rigs get it wrong, mid level consumer line array are pretty close only high end pa are squared away like the EAW Anya rigs and who can afford that stuff. The diffraction horns and melded array Bill perscribes, all be it seemingly counter intuitive are by my estimations pretty correct ...

Simplexx 15 Pro Sub weight

Anyone know the weight of the Simplex 15" Pro-Sound Sub cabinet when built from 1/2" Baltic Birch? I'm just thinking out-loud... I have some 3015LF's at my disposal and was thinking the Simplexx Pro might be suitable option for jobs where I'm not on-site to take proper precautions for the folded hor...

Re: Christmas SLA Pro build

Which driver did you use? Chris, I went ahead with the Alpha 6a. I was really on the fence about grabbing those $20 Dayton Audio PA165's that Tom mentioned over in this thread: https://billfitzmaurice.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=25118 I decided the new Alphalite 6's were simply over budget at th...

Re: Christmas SLA Pro build

I wanted to chime back in here with a report after nearly a couple of weeks of using them. I've commented regarding this on another post, but thought I'd come back here to the actual build thread to share my experiences. First off, back to the lean with the speaker poles... I initially had these mou...
