Haven’t put it on a scale but it’s 30x30x29 and has the 2 kappalites which are about 7lbs each

For DJ use. House and Techno mainly.. it came in at 115lbs. Heavy but man does this thing hummmm. Just started the next one and should have a majority done by this weekend.

I’m hoping to have it done for next week. We have an outdoor gig and want to run 2 of these bad boys. All of my buddies can’t believe the bass these things put out. After showing them they’re all believers now. Next on the agenda is some OT12’s only cause I don’t know if I could make the DRs.

You'll be happy with the OT12s, they are amazing. My pair keeps up with my 6 T30s outdoors if that gives you any idea..

Nice build! Hope you have a high pass and limiter set as per the plans. These things stop humming if overdriven without warning. Plenty of folks here to help you set that up if need be.

For best results, point the loud end of the array towards the audience

That's only with the PA2. No interface with the PA, PA+, or PX. But they all get the job done equally well for the needs here.

Ordered the PA2 should be here in time for this weekend. Any suggestions on high and low pass freqs for these? 2 - dual loaded 3012LF gonna be using them with a pair of mackie srm450. I’m new to this type of sub... I usually just have a powered qsc kw181.

Single dual loaded T30: HP 35hz, LP 100hz
Pair dual loaded T30: HP 30hz, LP 100hz

I never bother bringing any mains lower than 100hz with these subs even if they have the ability to.
