Re: OT12 J-Array (Weird SMAART trace in low end)

Found the problem after going direct to driver and getting same response. My test bench includes a old Yamaha 01V96 mixer that I retired from service to tinker toy status. Some kool kid (mine) accidently engaged the EQ on the main out. And it was setup to cut that range in various places. I should ...

Re: Titan 39 Build

I've highpassed bass guitar channels up to 60-70Hz if they are walking over the kick too much. I've seen the electric bass channel high passed at even 80Hz when the FOH engineer wants to have the same tone in the PA as is coming out of the backline. Since most channel strip high pass filters are 12...

Re: Titan 39 Build

Seth, you are absolutely correct about the fundamental. However, the "character" of the bass starts an octave above that. That, and, most of what we hear from a bass amp often never gives a full presentation of the fundamental anyway. Bryan will be safe. SQ-wise, at an HP of 50hz. +1 with what Tom ...

What happens? Heat?

I guess it really matters what levels you are trying to achieve, at what impedance load, and whether it's continuous or the amp gets a breather once in a while.
I've run XTi4000s at 2ohms for hours with no issues.

Re: Behringer X32

Brent I don't understand why you are being so defensive (or seemingly, it's hard to tell on the internet), I'm simply offering my experience as a counter point to yours, no offence intended. but if you can't operate this console then the issue might be operator related. That's a personal jab. I did...

Re: Behringer X32

We're a year into our X32's lifecycle, no quality concerns, sounds great. We've put it on FOH for some "band's that Canadians would probably know" with no complaints, we've used it as a monitor desk on some even bigger shows. I disagree about the interface being clunky; the initial configuration of ...

Re: XTI: accessing system architect from a distance

Check it out closer, it does more than just monitoring over WIFI.

I've not seen it in action myself, but know a few that have. Look foward to being able to control my IT and XTIs from the same interface.

Re: XTI 1000 problem!!!!

We have 11 XTIs in the shop, a handful installed in various venues as well. None of our amps have suffered any failures, one amp that we have installed in a venue is at Crown as we speak. I can't help but laugh at the "gotta stay away from that brand" comments.

Re: You think Behringer can win you over?.... X32 that is...

Recently did a somewhat well known Touring Act who opted to leave their SL24.4.2 in the truck when they found out an X32 could be provided. From the other forums I read it's obvious the migration has begun. Some fairly big names appear to be using them as monitor mixers. And the rewards from the NA...

I've had one for a few months, has met expectations so far. Did a two week theatre run where I programmed cues for 23 RF mics, along with a mic'ed orchestra and a stereo playback for sound effects. Recently did a somewhat well known Touring Act who opted to leave their SL24.4.2 in the truck when the...

Re: Speaker wire

While this is true, you then have to worry about an amp rack in an unmonitored location We have the luxury of putting it inside the fence, nestled safely between concrete barriers, the eventual move to powered would help at the expense of complicating the AC distribution. not to mention ground loop...

Re: Speaker wire

Hello rotebass, Yes, the reason I need to run it overhead is due to there being a high traffic area between the place where I setup and the speaker location. After the parade starts and everyone is seated it would not be a problem, but we have to setup early and I find it better to get it up out of...
