...Hopefully the 18" sub will sound better than it's JRX counterpart too...
Chuck, I was referring to Jamin's comment on the STX subs sounding better than the subs from the SRX series. I know the PRX400 series uses Selenium components.
2.) The highs on the PRX412s are a bit directional (sound changes noticeably more than about 20 degrees off center) and right in front the highs are so present they tend to be a little crispy sounding. I'll definitely be pulling down the 16k slider on my amp when I run these. Might even consider beam blockers of some sort over the middle of the cones.
3.) The combination 1/4"-Speakon connectors are less than ideal for 1/4". I don't have any Speakon to test with, but with the 1/4" - and this is a bit connector specific as not all designs are exactly the same - the connection is scratchy when the cable is moved, indicating a somewhat marginal connection.
1.) They only have one handle - and it's on the side, which is just plain stupid. The BR12's got it right - one handle, right in the top, making transport a breeze. If I get ambitious, I'll be adding handles in the tops of the PRXs.
A beam blocker over the cone won't do anything about high frequencies coming from the horn. Placed over the horn, it'll probably do too much damage to the overall HF response of the system and hurt intelligibility too much.Edit - tidied up quotes
I'm thinking I'll just stick some thick felt pads (~1-2" diameter) on the inside of the grill right in front of the center of the horn. If I can't readily find a material and size that dials down the super highs and evens out the directional aspect a bit without hurting the clarity, then of course I'll just abandon the idea.
