Re: speakon mounting question

That's an option, but so is the method in the plans. Hot melt glue is adequate to fasten them. That's why there are no fasteners shown in the sketchup. Until they break or a connector snaps off inside them, then you’ve got a mess. There’s a reason there are mounting holes on them, and it’s not to m...

Re: Behringer NX6000 vs Qsc GX7

So Qsc would be the choice Thanks GX7 is far more versatile than the NX6000 but on shore power the performance is fairly similar. Only on generator will you see a huge difference. Reliability is about the same. I have a GX and two NUs in my shop right now that need to go to warranty repair. The num...

Re: Brand dormancy

Most people around here probably realize that you can't tell squat from a YouTube video. I made one way back when, it still gets a comment here and there (just had one the other day). It never did the rig justice. The reality is that most people make videos of their audio gear to show off how much t...

Re: What is going on here?

Indeed. The newer ones do all the famous Hammonds... a100,b3,c3, etc, along with emulation of every type of Leslie cab ever made. Hammond even has one with 88keys and a pretty good ser of piano patches. Id live to have one but they're relatively pricey.

Re: What is going on here?

IDK, maybe out front though the PA or on a recording. When you stand next to a leslie the sound gets sprayed around the room, highs and lows in different directions all spinning around and bouncing off the walls and different surfaces. The doppler effect could easily be reproduces but no way you co...

Re: What is going on here?

These days it’s rare to tour with a real one, but the Leslie sound is well sampled and synthesized by various keyboards. Hammond (now part of Suzuki) still sells digital organs that have controls very similar to the B3 but do all,of the synthesis digitally and are virtually indistinguishable sonical...

Re: Calling all Karaoke gurus

Yeah. I’ve never run it but that all that sounds about right. I’d get something like an Xr12 so you can have IPad control and some decent effects. Don’t use wireless mics, or even good mics. They’ll get destroyed. Buy some $20 mics (behringer’s xm1800 and 8500 are decent for karaoke and cheap). Keep...

Re: Calling all Karaoke gurus

Using YouTube videos violates their TOS and is a great way to have a failure during a show. If you do a subscription service, make sure you are paying for an appropriate level of service. Some of them offer a “home” license which would not cover public performance like that. A client of mine uses Ka...

Re: Question for signal processing gurus

Ok, you have an analogue mixer (or two), cool. Set up a compressor to duck the music channels (if you're not sure how, google it, there's lots of info on the net about ducking) but add EQ as well to the input side of the compressor, tailored to vocals frequencies only. You should be able to get tha...

Re: Monitor Impedance

Impedance between woofers and tweeters (when used properly, i.e. with a crossover) does not sum or cancel. Impedance is variable with frequency. If you use an 8 ohm woofer and a 16 ohm tweeter with a properly designed crossover at 2.5khz, for instance, the cab will be 8 ohms nominally below 2.5khz a...

Re: THT LP - End or Side Port?

Another option would be to put the cabinet OUTSIDE the room and fire through the a wall, or the ceiling or floor. I've done this plenty of times and it works quite well. The biggest pain is getting a reasonable seal around the hole between the two rooms. If your carpentry skills are reasonable, you ...

Re: THT LP - End or Side Port?

That actually probably has more to do with the other dimensions of the room than the ceiling height. There are two things you can do to hedge your bets. First, you can always build legs or wall mount the thing so that it butts up against the ceiling. That would give you far more than minimum clearan...

Re: New Design Ideas??

A simple home audio 2way speaker would come in handy here. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of designs for those available. For examples you need go no further than the Parts Express tech talk forum. There are two criteria for me doing a design. One is that it's something that you can't readily f...
