I reckon I got lucky today, just happened to be in the right place at the right time and I acquired a Community CSX40-S2 subwoofer, a Crown CE1000, and a Samson S2-Way Crossover. Some of you are probably thinking "what's so lucky about that? Sounds like junk to me". Well I'm the new kid on the block just starting up and only doing small gigs around town. Small gig in my book is defined as small to midsize venues with only 300 people or less. I'm doing sound for basically small cover bands and weddings and things such as that. I had everything but the subs and this was given to me today. My question is what can I do to beff these up a bit? Anyone have any recommendations on replacement woofers that might give me a better punch? Only using this one dual 15" sub in front of middle stage. I have the Crown CE1000 bridge and the samson is crossed at about 50 Hz. Should I spend a little money and try the beast it up a little, or should I save my money for a dual 18" sub??? I do understand that if I want big punch I need more subs. But for now this is going to have to do.
If you must know:
Cover bands do have drums, keys, bass, guitars both electric and acoustic, and loops (prerecorded).
As stated before small to midsize rooms. Only using this one sub mid stage. No more then 300 people in attendance.
Other gear being used if this helps?
- 4 EV ELX112 Speakers (2 per side stacked on each other)
- Powered by 2 Crown XLS1000 power amps (both amps parallel in, 1 speaker per channel)
- PreSonus Studiolive 16.4.2 AI
- GTD Audio M-2500 power amp in parallel powering 2 Mackie c200 monitors. (1 monitor per channel)
Kick goes through system via Shure Beta 52 Mic. Shure Sm137 Drum Kit Overhead.
Bass guitar and other guitars all go through system. Keys go through system and loops go through the system.
Here are the specs for the sub if that helps: http://www.communitypro.com/files/literature/spec%2520sheets/discontinued/csx40_s2.pdf?phpMyAdmin=c9cc5b3953d87385dc22218d669e7aab
