You can't V-couple one cab.
Understood but if I am reading the plans correctly I can build a cab with 2 BP 102's in it (dual loaded)?

Using BP102's do you recommend 1 BP102 in one cabinet or 2 Bp102's in the same cabinet?

Thanks again.
I would recommend no BP102s and use the 3010LF instead. I have one in my T24 and used the 150hz passive crossover from the plans. Works great.

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

Thanks. I have two more BP 102's that I am trying to use up once the Simplexx project is completed and am thinking I should throw them in a T24 that I have the plans for and then use both the Simplexx and T24 for my rig.

Well I am hoping to have my cabinets back this week and get speakers and jacks installed in time for rehearsal on Thursday. The lead guitarist (my best friend for 35+ years) and I spent the better part of a year putting together the right line-up of musicians. At our first live rehearsal last week I destroyed my old set of speakers presumably by overpowering them. They did fine during individual private practice but simply could not keep up in a full rehearsal. I did some digging around on the forum and came across threads referencing the Behringer UltraDrive DCX2496LE and driveracks so I have a million questions.

To begin with if these questions are answered in a thread please provide me with a link and I will read it and come back with more focused questions. So here goes:
  • How do I regulate the voltage going into them?
  • Does the Ultradrive go between the amp and my pedal board or does it go between the amp and the speakers?
  • How do I determine the wattage going from the amp to the speakers?
  • What is the difference between a "driverack" and the Ultradrive?
  • What else would the forum members recommend I learn about to run my rig with maximum efficiency while not destroying it?

If they distort turn it down. You don't need to do anything more than that. Driverack and the like are for PA.

Best advice anyone could give! Many sound technicians should relate to this once in a while! :clap:
