Any djs using Danley SM 80's
« on: December 13, 2015, 09:06:24 pm »

I see the rave reviews but its mostly from Bands...Would love to know how these hold up with heavy EDM Style music....I had the Danley Sm 96 over TH 118 combo and I had an issue where the tops would go into a protect mode and temporarily cut the output down....SM 96 has a higher spl and should cut the room more but would love to hear feedback

What size rooms are you trying to cover? How many people? Are you currently using one TH118 per side? And are you happy with that output? Because the SM80 will easily outrun a single TH118. You would need 2-3 TH118 per side to keep up with a SM80, at least for EDM and/or Hip-Hop.

I don't really subscribe to the 'this speaker is better for this type of music than that speaker' notion. If a speaker is relatively flat and reasonably accurate in response it should sound good no matter what you're using it for.  And yes I have used the SM80 for EDM, and it sounds great.

Rooms vary in size but I provide sound a for a lot of djs where its never enough for them....I was running one th-118 per side with the 96's....mostly edm style music...I work in different rooms...varying number of people....biggest would probably be 1500

I agree with Scott above. I have SM80 over TH118 set up and while I don't provide much for EDM type events if I need a big sound I use 2-3 subs per top. 2 tops and 6 subs powered with IT8k would fill up a pretty good sized room. I think the problem is not SM96 vs. SM80 it's not enough sub to balance.

Never enough for them is usually more than enough for everyone else in the room.

2x TH-118 + SM80 per side for EDM = a few hundred people, depending, from experience.  And sound fantastic, of course.  Be aware SM80 has very limited LF, so proper xover setup is crucial.

I am curious about the SM96 vs SM 80 as well.
Heard a rig with 2xSM80 over 6 TH118s and it sounded spectacular.
Installed 20 OS80s in an arena and it sounded great.
However, it seems to me the SM96, while a couple of db down, has better low freq. response and might have better low freq. pattern control.
