I think you should probably be on speakerplans.com they will be a lot more helpful here than anybody here will be.
Haha, probably not the most ideal first reply. I can't see it being that bad here as I've seen other posts on it which were discussed in a suitable way.
In a nutshell, I think it's a bad idea to build a "SYSTEM" on the box-a-month plan. You spend a lot of time with no income (and no ability to grow the rig) and get a reputation for having Not Enough Rig for the GigŪ regardless of how nice it is or the pedigree that comes with the brand.I take it you're putting together a portable dance music system. We're primarily live audio here, but we have a smattering of EDM providers so they might have more/better comments, but on the whole our type doesn't obsess over "kick bins" or worry that the -3dB dip at 150Hz will somehow cause sterility or collapse of civilisation as we know it. Have funk, good lucks.Tim Mc
1. First off I guess I should ask if this sounds like a solid plan2. As I am intending to get the resolution cabs first, I guess I am deciding between the res2 and res4 options. The main difference between the two of them I can tell is that one has a 15" and the other is 12" (the 8 and 1 are the same). Is the Res 2 a better option to use at first with F218 and then Infrabass and then when I get the top sections of the dance stack, they can be used as monitors or for frontal dispersion?3. I have been told and read that the F215 is a better option than DS15 for non-installs because the DS15 doesn't travel well or something to this effect. Is this a common selection now for this purpose? The operating bands for the F215 are a lot lower than the DS15 so it's a really different speaker and I've seen one of the dance stack options includes both. Is that perhaps the best final configuration? (DS10 / DS 15 / F 215 / F218 x 2 / Infrabass).
Rich,1) Individual sub, mid, hi-mid, high enclosures have not been a "solid plan" as far as general market acceptability or resale since the late 1970's. I replaced my four box 1979 horn system (took 9 months of design and build ) for a two box, four way horn loaded system in 1981. The last time I tried to sell separate enclosures I got zero response. That said, it seems everything old is new again, and separates are again popular in the dance market. If you have determined there is a market that will pay for them, and the extra work involved, go for it.2) In addition to what you pointed out, the Res 4 is three way, adding expense and complexity over the two way semi-full range Res 2. For building "one piece at a time" (great Johnny Cash song) the Res 2 seems more flexible, and could be used as a stand alone rental.3) Chopping up bandwidth using separate cabinets covering little more than an octave is one approach to get the job done, not necessarily the "best final solution". As a "one piece at a time" building plan, using multiple subs each capable of operation from around 30-100+ Hz makes more sense than purchasing just one portion of that spectrum at a time.Art (not quite as old as Tony Andrews) Welter
