EAW BH760
« on: December 14, 2016, 04:55:30 pm »

I came across a deal of 8 EAW BH760. It's tempting.

How do they stack up these days against modern 2x18"?

Probably pretty good, the spec is plus/minus 3dB from 29Hz-100Hz, with a long term output of 139dB. IIRC however at least the bandwidth spec was based on the intended pack of 4 to create a large horn with a 60"x60" face, 45" deep, weighing 1000lbs. They were not really intended to be used singly.

Weight might be a factor for you.  115Kg or 253lbs per box.  That is over a ton on your truck or trailer.

I owned Labsubs for a few years, they were pretty good in stacks of three and upwards.
Really miss those subs.

Can I expect similar performance?

The Labsub was a project that was intended as a DIY to offer better performance than the commercial cabinet.

I have a mixed feeling about that sub.
They can kick like nothing else, but those 29hz are pure fiction.
Note that i have used 40 of those subs in one pile and they were nowhere near close to 29hz.

Marjan:
I had 24 KF760+24 BH760 last year in Slovenia.
That sounded all right, but it was a metal show, so it doesn't need that much 29 hz.

Labs didn't go that low either, pretty good to around 35hz IIRC.

I like subs with a "quick" response or kick as people often call it.
What do you recon it's "real" low frequency cutoff is?

There is a big KF760 BH760 rig here, heard it on almost any type of music you can think of. never dropped very low. 35hz is perhaps the usable low extension.

We had 40 of them for David Guetta here at the stadium along with 16 EAW Anya per side. Subs could not keep up and didnt wend as low as i would like them to.

This company here has them for like 15 years or so, blowed lot of drivers. So be carefull with them if you get them.

You have probably heard that same system i am talking about.

I still have two out of 8 labs i build back in 2003. They drop waay lower then bh760.

Probably the same rig.
Good local crew, it was a nice day.

I sold the Labs because I didn't like the form factor and lack of handles.
BH760 has a more appealing shape and handles.

I'm putting together an old EAW rig for fun.
Got 4+4 KF650Isr/Sb600 and 8 KF750 for cheap. The plan for 2017 is to paint the KF750 and replace a pair of drivers. KF650/SB600 was redone this year, swapped a couple of drivers and modified them to NL8.

I need subs for the KF750s some day, no hurry. I can rent for the very few shows this rig will do in 2017.

Labs could be fitted easy with handles man.
