Actually, the stage will be 13' deep. I should be able to leave 18" under the stage.

Then you should build T39. Loaded with the 3012LF, they beat the T45 in volume (SPL) but lose a few Hertz in extension. Since this sounds like it will be a performers stage, you do not want low extension. (T30 and T45 are basically identical in response)

You see that 6dB difference at 50Hz? that is equal to twice as many cabs. That mean 2 T39 are as loud as 4 T45 at 50Hz.

I recommended OT12s over TLAH Pro in your other thread. Easier build, a LOT less expensive.

There is no chart for the TLAH Pro, but the SLA Pro is close enough. The TLAH Pro is 6 drivers, the OTop12 and the DR200 or DR250 are 1 driver per cab. If you have woodworking experience and can read and follow the plans, build DR200 or DR250. If you don't have any experience, or don't have a lot of time, build OmniTop 112.
