Re: How to build Rack Panels and put together a rack

Looks great. Also for anyone looking for pre-punched panels, these are quite good for about $10 ea. I have them in my racks. http://www.audiopile.net/RP2UM http://www.audiopile.net/RP1UM http://www.audiopile.net/Rack-Drawers-and-Hardware_c_152.html Also generally a good source for a fair bit of audi...

Re: Anyone doing FPGA DSP?

I'm interested in this as well, here's a bit of what I've found. It's possible to do audio processing with FPGA's, but doesn't seem to be as easy as with a microprocessor or DSP chip. Here's a helpful page: https://www.mathworks.com/help/hdlcoder/examples/running-an-audio-filter-on-live-audio-input-...

Re: Calculating nominal impedance with multiple BFM subs.

For something like this I'd go with a series-parallel configuration. Lightens the load, and you should be able to get an amplifier with plenty of power to do that easily.

Re: wire three dr250s to one amp channel

asked him which input was positive and which was negative and he said it didn't matter cause there's no polarity That's highly incorrect. -Edit. Unless if the cab has multiple input jacks maybe the question was about which one to use? What does it have, speakon, 1/4", binding posts? Speakon and 1/4...

Re: Replacing a EMX 5000

If you're willing to go used, a Yamaha 01v96 can be found for $500-$1000. Maybe a little more than you need, but for a mostly consistent setup I've found the presets and per channel digital PEQ to be very handy. I put one in at my church, and also use one personally (01V97VCM V2). Lots of routing op...

Re: Looking for an amp recommendation

I'd probably put them in parallel and get something like the Dayton SA230. Or if fan noise wasn't an issue I'd look at a used QSC RMC that I could pull and use in my full rig if needed, but that might not be a consideration for you. The Bryston looks like a nice amp, but you'd need a crossover to go...

Re: blown tweeter array

If you've got the money for it, the DBX 160 claims to actually go into negative gain if needed, might be worth looking into. From the manufacturer's page: "The dbx® 160A's unique "INFINITY +" inverse-compression mode actually decreases the audio output level below unity gain when the input exceeds t...

Re: Problem: Making the time for DIY

I managed to pull off a DR250 on top of full time work and school, just go for whatever you can get, bit by bit.
One workbench. More is nice, but it doesn't take that much.
And yes, build subs early, they make building the rest more fun :)

Re: iNuke 6000 NU4

Since you're looking at the 4 channel inuke I'll assume you don't need dsp. Personally, knowing the history of Behringer I won't buy them on principle (at least new, and I try to avoid used) I've had some of their gear, and about half of it hasn't had any issues yet. I've also repaired more gear of ...

Re: Speakons; Just use the screws or solder them?

+1 Cable management is very important to a well-managed system.
