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...

As long as Bill designs in secure storage to hold the magic crystals and unicorn farts needed to get around Hoffman's Iron Law, put me down for a dozen plans.

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...

Re: Omni 12 Full range vs Jack 12

Omni probably sounds better and maybe louder for one or two cabs per side. Jack is smaller, but it offers the benefit of being vertically arrayable for pattern control and system expansion.

Plywood

So, we’re finally getting the house back together and bought flooring from Home Depot. Nice stuff. It came on 2 pallets, and had a half sheet of what looked like decent,if cheap, plywood on the top and bottom of each pallet. Scuffed edges, veneered, but no visible knots and it had some potential for...

Not to mention it has two amps on board, making a biamped cab possible.

Re: Do voltage limits change with cabinet design?

when they break up, it’s so nasty no one in their right mind would keep going. My assumption is that the responsible culprits are teenagers, which explains that. :noob: Well...
