Re: HowieZ DR200 build

Yep, those Menards BB squares are awesome. I still have a few left after buying out my local store when they let them go at $1.99 a piece. I see they have them back in stock again, but the price has definitely gone up a bit.

Re: end-fire sub config with T39's

Interesting experiment, thanks for sharing. Did you use a meter to measure the sound levels of each configuration and at various frequencies? And what happened in front? Similar output? More? Less? I'm curious as to what situations you'd use this configuration in.

Re: A “build once, cry once” bass rig for Low F# tuning

BTW......how big is an F# string? Size of a telephone pole? Ever look "under the hood" of an Imperial Bosendorfer? Love those extra low notes, all the way down to 20hz. Although I'm sure the rainbow of harmonics coming off those massively thick and long strings has more to do with the sound than th...

Re: outdoor wedding

Set the system up last night for a big event today. Ran flawlessly for 11 hours - same set up, same cables, nothing cut out. It was indoor event, so I didn't run nearly as hard. Was kind of hoping to see the problem reappear so I could troubleshoot. Oh well, can't complain about a system that runs s...

Quite right.
A big plus for this forum!
I'm in a completely different industry, different state and also having a tough time finding and hiring new employees, as are many companies. Hats off to Eminence for pulling together as a team to get done what they can for their customers.

Re: Hello From Tampa !

Also, if pressed, you will find MOST of the detractors haven't actually built OR heard a BFM system in person, but they've "heard" about them online blah blah blah. Hearing is believing. My T30s are big boxes when compared with some of the common direct radiator subs in use. But once people hear th...

Re: Big amps

Hmmm, at first couldn't imagine why you'd need to tax an amp that size... then saw 18x Tuba 60 - Dual 12" LAB Oh yeah!!! Crank up the volts! I'd love you hear your system some day :-)

outdoor wedding

Had the system out over the weekend for a friend's outdoor wedding. The dual pairs of T30s v-plated are so awesome for recorded music. Couldn't be happier. Funny thing though, one side of otops cut out every now and then. It was pretty infrequent and never lasted for very long, so I didn't mess with...

Re: otop with only dsp?

Also, the power it takes to drive the highs is so miniscule compared to the mids, it seems like a waste of an amp channel for no real benefit.

When I first decided to go with the OT12s, I was going to bi-amp them too......I'm glad that I didn't - life is much easier.

Seth, time for you to walk the plank...

Seriously (or not), it's a thing. Look up Alestorm if you dare. Probably end up with a raging rum hangover

Re: Parking lot party

Just as an aside, I put up a request list ahead of time to let people choose a tune or two they'd like to hear - always keeping veto override power! Wide, wide range of stuff - oldies, classic rock, modern rock, party pop, electronica, several flavors of metal (pirate metal??? didn't know it existed...

Re: Parking lot party

Thanks Seth. Maybe being "the boss" keeps the "you set it up wrong" comments down, at least in this environment. Honestly, I bet most didn't even realize what the big thing against the wall even was. Did get to share a bit about horn paths and coupling and such with the guys that helped me set up. I...
