On Board Amp

#1 Post by Bill Fitzmaurice » Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:01 pm

This on board amp from Parts Express looks good, at a price that makes sense.

https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-au ... h--300-798

It could be mounted on just about any of our full range cabs with minor modifications. It has enough power to drive a pair of cabs, so it would be easy enough to install a 4 pole Speakon on the cab containing the amp and one on the extension speaker. Full DSP that includes crossover, EQ and limiting plus Bluetooth makes this a very attractive rig.

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

That's the only way you'd want to use it. Until now nothing in this price range had all the features you want, especially the DSP capability.

The first time I saw these amps I though the eq was a 5 preset aka rock pop vocal etc but upon farther investigation it is 5 band parametric with 5 saveable settings. these amps are needed in this industry. That’s a win for parts express and Dayton audio. I wish Dayton made more drivers that met these horn loaded demands.

It would fit on the side, mounted upright towards the back of the cab.

Near the bottom of page 4:

Outputs
● 1 XLR output
● 1 High Pass Output (Blue and Black Wire)
● 1 Low Pass Output (Red and Black Wire)
● 1 LED Output Header



Bottom of page 12:

"Notes
● The HIGH PASS output has a passive 1 kHz high pass filter. Even if you turn HPF off in this
menu, the signal is filtered out below 1 kHz. The LOW PASS output can output full-range. "
Built:
17" width 10" driver Autotuba
2 x 29" width dual Lab12 Tuba60
6 x DR250 2510/asd1001
In progress:
2 x DR250 2510/asd1001
For best results, point the loud end of the array towards the audience

From the top of this page: install a 4 pole Speakon on the cab containing the amp and one on the extension speaker.
Why you'd only want to use the low frequency amp I don't get.
