Hello. I will soon be in possession of six Danley SH-46's and six TH-118's. I can see four different configurations for my use (at this time, always stacked). --Two tops with two subs.--Two tops with three subs.--Three tops with three subs.--Three tops with two subs.Two subjects here:First, what are the advantages of using the Danley processor over the ones I already have (Ashly and EV)? I cannot find a user guide or manual on the Danley web site. Where can I find the settings for a non-Danley processor? Will the settings be different based on the configuration I use (as listed above)? For example, I have heard that the SH-46's were designed so that two of them arrayed together have a pretty much flat response. When a third is added, are any adjustments to the processor needed? Does the Danley processor contain presets for the SH-46's and the TH-118's? Does it have presets based on how many of each are used in a stack or array?Second, regarding amplifiers. I currently have some PL380's (2500wpc at 4 ohms), PL3.4's (3400w bridged at 4 ohms), and PLX2402's (2400w bridged at 4 ohms). I was thinking of using the PL380's for the SH-46's, one speaker per channel, then use the PL3.4's for the TH-118's, one speaker per amp, bridged. Spec-wise that looks like the best idea to me, in order to match up to the respective Danley speakers. Does that seem reasonable?Thanks for your help!
As long as your current DSPs contain the normal processing elements-they should be fine. It does not take a lot to bring the products to life. Just high and low pass filters and a couple of eq points. Danley demos typically don't use any eq-just high and low pass filters.Power wise your idea seems fine. However I try to avoid bridging amps into subs. I would suggest running the TH118s on the PL380s and the Sh46s on the 3.4s-all in normal mode (ie not bridged). Yes the power may appear to be low on the 46s in normal mode-but I bet you will be fine.In general you don't have enough TH118's to keep up with the number of Sh46s you have. Program material depending.The only thing that will happen when you have 3 46s (as compared to 2) is that the low end (below around 300hz or so) will get louder.
Congratulations, you will have a seriously nice PA.
As Ivan has also hinted, and as both a Danley dealer and SH46/TH118 owner and user, in most cases I would rather have 4 x SH46 and 8 x TH118 and even then you might run out of sub juice first. But of course this is without knowing your requirements with regard to dispersion, SPL, genres and so on.

Thanks, Ivan, for the information. I have a few more questions, if you don't mind. Where can I get the info regarding the high/low pass filters and the peq settings for the 46's and 118's? Is that something that you can post?Why do you not like bridging amps for subs? Bridging the PL3.4's would get much closer to the specs for the TH-118's.How many TH-118's should I have to even out the system? (will be a future thing, but I might as well start planning for it now...)Thanks.
Remember that it takes twice or half the watts to only make a 3dB difference.
