Lightweight Passives
« on: March 23, 2014, 10:15:16 am »

Hello all.

  I did a search, but no luck. I need recommendations for light weight pole mount passive speakers to replace our 61# Yamaha S115Vs that are too heavy to haul, let alone get up on stands. Looks like I'll be limited to 12, since most of the 15's are quite heavy.  We're a Classic Rock duo using backing tracks, so I do need some decent bottom end (I know in 12 boxes?).

  Cost is a consideration, but I do want good sound. Mostly small bars, restaurants, Tiki bars, etc.

 I'm using a QSC1804 (600 watts/8 ohm).

Thanks.


Regards,


Bob

12's and 15's not bad bang for the buck...we have put these in churches and schools and they sound good.

Carvin PM153 . I also own 4 ELX112P and the Carvin sound much better. MUCH better. Weigh 40lbs and can handle a lot of power.

I like, and use, Peavey Impulse 1012 (NOT the PR12).

If you liked the Yamaha sound, have a look at the S112V / C112V.

If you want the real LF, nothing substitutes a sub. Look for the single 18" ones like the Yamaha SW118V.

4 per side? Sounds like a recipe for horrendous comb filtering!  :o Were you trying to get more dB or coverage?
