Thanks Tim and Art for your well-thought out replies.I think that means I'll go with the res2 to start with. I do have my mind set on the end goal and now living mortgage-free, and with almost enough capital to start with the res cabs, 1 pair of F218 and appropriate amps + speaker management, I hope to be able to complete 2 dance stacks + monitors in about 2 years. I realise hiring it out and employing staff will be a bit of work but to be honest, this will be like an expensive hobby for me. I'm not going to go out buying $100k cars as I'm not that interested in them so this is what I've chosen to keen me happy and not turn into a boring old 9-5 dinner tv sleep repeat man until I'm ready to retire. Back on topic.. I do realise that it won't sound complete until it is complete and also I will do my best to keep it under wraps until it is as well although I'm sure what I could buy with said capital should make a decent enough sound for me to be happy initially Can I get an opinion on whether this order of purchase sounds like the best idea to have the most options to have a balanced sound during the time that I am adding items?1. Res 22. F2183. Infrabass4. F2155. DS10 / Res 3 EH Evo x 26. F218Then possibly DS15 depending on if I think there is enough control over the upper mid.Here are the 3 most common Dance Stack options from the F1 website:http://www.funktion-one.com/img/tech-drawings/DS_tech.pngI guess it's halfway in between the first and second ones.Thanks again!
Does it have to be funktion one?Given what you want to do, I'd think about 4 danley dbh218 subs and 2 sh96ho tops to round out a couple stacks
I'm assuming that "presentation" is a big part of the equation here. Of course, you could get better stuff and use a pile of dummy cabinets to make it look cool...
With a bit of orange paint, danley cabs have been making their presence in the electronic music scene heard and felt. The punters like the horn look more than they like a pile of boxes.
Yet it seems the OP prefers the large physical display and is enamored with complexity...not what I would call a solid business plan.
I'm sure part of the reason Funktion One have become so popular on what you Americans call the EDM scene, is their distinctive appearance that makes virtually any combination of F1 boxes which form a full spectrum system instantly recognizable.The bold colours and styling are probably more significant than any special sonic properties, to have got this brand to the point where promoters of dance events are pleased to be able advertise F1 sound at their events on flyers, websites etc. I don't know how common this is in the USA, but here punters seem to respond very positively to the Function One brand. It seems to form a kind of quasi quality assurance mark for sound quality, and I think the brand's up their with Technics and Pioneer in terms of acceptance and recognition by a significant proportion of fans of most kinds of dance music.Hence I agree with Dick that the OP has chosen this brand for more than its sound quality. I suspect a smaller and less physically imposing Danley rig of equal or greater capability, would not satisfy the OP's objective.Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
As fashions do change, I could imagine that with some clever marketing Danley could make F1 kit passe on the UK scene.I can imagine buzzwords like "synergy", "coherence" and "efficiency" whispered by converts educating the die-hard Funktion One folk, and another mixture of myth, marketing and fact would become common parlance on that scene.Discovering something better than F1 may gain traction and perhaps even widespread acceptance. In my experience the dance music scene loves finding stuff with that elusive "exclusive" cool factor - and will happily turn facts into pseudo science via the Chinese whispers used to exchange information!Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
Thanks to the first two guys who gave me solid replies and thanks in advance to anyone willing to further the discussion without going too far off topic. I will definitely take a look into danley products but as you say.. chinese whispers and pseudo science are most likely to bring about their downfall in the future too if that's how it works whenever someone starts to like a particular brand.
