Anyone have any thoughts about this, even if not the whole thing? Is there a better place to ask?thanks!
I'd hate to deal with external amplifiers and their associated heavy-gauge cabling. There are a variety of relatively light-weight self powered speakers available that would be well-suited to this application.Good luck!
I still am puzzled by the idea itself. Takes a while to embrace the "all bike" thinking. Did you tour Germany already? We love green energy :-)First of all, what voltage is the bike power system putting out? You wrote that you can maintain (relatively) constant voltages with a bunch of bikes. I would definitely power the system with DC, there are DC powered systems but I don't think they are sufficient for the audience count. Depending on the sub level required the current draw can be pretty heavy (and the sub amp's want the highest rail voltage), so that's your biggest concern, overall power and power shaping wise. A low cut higher than usual may be of help here.I don't know the K-Array stuff. So no comment on that.Line array elements have the upside to be portable (within you weight limit), as opposed to a bigger trap box system. Still, the subs are your problem.If you can go the In Ear route for monitoring you will be save on that side.All in all, more information needed, what kind of power system can you create (voltage, average current, peak current how high for how long)
An engineer buddy of mine recommended the EAW LA-400 folded horn subs for their extreme efficiency. They're a bit on the extreme side as far as weight and size, though. Anyone know of anything similar but smaller?Yes, Jerome, the fans do all of the powering. Thanks, Peter. I was wondering about this. On the one hand, it seems conceptually lighter to have just one amp doing all the work, and not having to send power to each box. But are you saying that the cabling that passive units require will end up weighing more than the active amp modules that they eliminate? Jon, I'm guessing that Dan is doing a similar mod to the PRX as we are, and it sounds good as long as you keep the voltage high enough. I've yet to hear any 12v systems that sound good with live music. Have you heard otherwise? Thanks for the link, David. I'll get in touch with Brian.
