DR250's or 280's with Tuba 30's

#1 Post by Paddlsonic » Mon Sep 07, 2020 11:26 pm

Hi,

I built a couple of tuba 30's for a mate and man are they amazing!
Now i'm going to build some for myself.
I was wondering opinions on whether the dr250's or 280's might be a better choice to complement the tuba 30's.

Mostly to be used for indoor use (occasional small outdoor things) to take a range from really low end bass/sub sounds and electronic kick drum up to mic'd hihats and effects.
Basically want to capture evenly the whole spectrum.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

Cheers

ahhh....so you've already started another thread.....good.

With only 2 Tubas, you should be looking at either DR200s or OT12s. Smaller and lighter than the bigger DRs and match up better with only two Tubas.

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

At a 1:1 ratio DR250 match best with T39 or T48, DR280 match best with T48 or T60.

thanks for the replies guys.

At 1:1 would DR200's fit with the tuba 30's?
hooked on the 30's and the DR's.

cheers
