Re: I need a good handheld tone generator

Buy a used Android phone on Craigslist or pick up a new cheap android tablet at a store. You do not have to activate the phone onto a cell network to use WiFi or run apps. Then use Audio tool app, it has a decent generator. Will not give you a "reference" level but fine for breaking in drivers and p...

Re: stacking Otop12s side by side?

I played many a "short wall" gig where most of the audience was out to the sides. I have set a second pair of oTops on stands behind my primary pair aiming out to the sides but took great care to avoid overlapping patterns and adjusting volumes appropriate for the coverage.

Re: Self nomination for village idiot..

It will work, but will be more prone to peeling and chipping during moves. Get some good Duratex coats on it and use durable corners. I added sacrificial strips of hard wood to my subs, 1/2 inch wide by 3/16 thick ASH strips up the backs so when the subs were lifted up stairs or into a trailer the b...

Re: Excessive ads on the mobile site (this post contains large images)

I am glad someone posted about this. Picked up a new phone yesterday and of course I come here to test the browser. RATS! I started to think the phone browser was inserting ads into the BFM site. I was getting ready to return the phone until I noticed the ads were not on other sites, so I thought it...

Re: What db level/what cabs to keep up with a drum kit?

One Otop12 and 2 T39s per side work for me in most venues up to a couple hundred people for rock / pop and country. I work with one drummer who hits his tubs like they owe him money, and often have to mix around his snare, where it may hit 95 decibels at the back wall of a venue with no amplificatio...

Re: How to TEST a USED amp?

I usually test one channel at a time. I connect a source like a phone, but preferably a phone through a mixer, and play music into the amp. I use a multi-meter on outputs before connecting to any speaker to make sure the amp isn't spitting out any constant or harmful voltage. With no music playing a...

Re: Champion Sound for Columbus Ohio

If you want to hear some T39's I have 4 in Akron Ohio (and 4 Otops). I may also be interested in selling them. I am not running my PA as much as I used to. Really the debate on how much low end is enough and how low do they go compared to your music content can be answered easily with a good listen....

Re: Shopping for a New Mixer

I was a Yamaha digital mixer user for many years, 01v, DM1000, DM2000, M7CL, PM5D. The x32 was sort of forced upon me and I have used both the Soundcraft and A&H digital desks form time to time. For the money I would go with an X32 rack and a digital snake. In fact I bought my own after operating a ...

Re: Project for youth

Would it work to stack absorbing foam blocks in font of each driver you want to "turn off" so they stay in the electrical load as wired but you acoustically "turn them on" by removing each block ?

Re: DR300 Questions

No matter what cabinet you choose, if you are using the PA during a fireworks presentation make sure you do not leave microphones open during the explosions to keep your subs from amplifying the booms. Also use a system controller / crossover with adequate limiters to limit the voltage going to your...

Re: Question about T39 Handle - urgent :)

If you want those handles you can put them into the bottom (lower section) of the cabinet sides so they protrude into the large mouth section, and even mount wheels on the back panel of the top section, but honestly I would not bother. The handle cut-outs in the plans are really optimal for wheeling...
