I am looking to purchase some subs mainly used for small bands inside. i currently use 8 lab subs for larger venues and outdoors. I want something smaller that's more portable but can be used with my Labsubs when I do larger events. Maybe as secondary subs or higher frequency subs for DJ music.
I want a versatile subs but don't have an unlimited budget.
I've looked into JBL STX828S, Yorkville LS1208 & PV SP218BX just to name a few but not limited to. I love the Yorkville but seems like it would be simialr to the Labsubs just a bit smaller. Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.
As with most things you have to define the goal a bit.
Ask yourself these questions:
1: Will I have to carry them up stairs to gigs? WIll it by by myself or with help?
2: Does the height matter? Do I need to stack cabinets on top of them and get them high enough?
3: How much SPL do I need and what is my budget? Do I need more cheap subs to split up for different gigs or a few better subs
4: How low do I really need to go?
Things like that are a good start. If you want to "shoot the target" FIRST you have know exactly what the target is. THEN you choose the proper tool for the job. Without knowing the job-then how do you know what tool to use.
The wrong tool at a good price is still the wrong tool.
