Lets say I send the Vocals, high toms, mid toms, cymbols (occasionally lead guitar) to the main L-R mix and engage the HPF on the mains (tops)and sendKick, floor toms to the sub group out and straight to the input on the subwoofers.....Where would you guys recommend I put bass guitar (I'm guessing in this set up to the main L-R mix?)or to be really awkward is there a way of sending it to both via Y cable or some other such method....or is this an unnecessary complication???
You're not quite getting the aux-fed-sub idea.EVERYTHING goes to the mains via the LR bus.ONLY signals with relevant content below 100Hz go to the subwoofers via the group or post-fader aux bus.
I'm going to offer an easier method:Go out of your boards Left Main out directly to your Mackie subs.Go out of your boards Right Main out directly to your Yamaha tops.Now you can use the Pan control on each channel to determine what does not go to the subs, i.e,All vocals and guitar would be panned hard right.Bass guitar panned 50/50 or to taste.Kick drum & Keyboards or any instrument requiring low frequencies would be panned 50/50.I use this method with my JBL PRX system and it works very well. You Mackie subs have the built in x-over at 125 and are made to handle full range. I would try the Yamaha's HP filter settings, and decide which sounds best over your Mackie subs. Do not use the "D-Contour" setting for live sound!
Thanks guys....starting to get an idea.......is there no issue with signal strength or such by sending different signals left and right pan to different speakers???.....then I guess you're saying daisy chain each subsequent top or sub......I know I must appear really flipping dumb....but honestly....I have no idea how some of these things work....once we navigate away from "the norm"Corey mate.......thanks....I really struggle to follow your method mate.....I really appreciate your time and effort
.....lol.......Arrggghhh......lol.......After all the different options.....Scott.....I'm right back to the way I've been setting up for the last six months......Main L-R into the subs and pass through using the HPF on the subs......this is what the Mackie manual says to do.....so that's what I did
