I have 2x18¨JBL custom subwoofers (2000watts each). Also lab grupen amplification, and i´m looking to buying new/second hand small/medium format passive array cabinets for live audio rock gigs.Can anyone suggest any models to look for that you guys think sounds great to set a sound equipment with my subwoofers???
"live audio rock gigs" is also an extremely generic requirement. You need to tell us how many of these subwoofer cabinets you have, post any measurements you have taken of their performance (vitally important for matching tops) and exactly what type of gigs you want to support.Requirements should include hard data:1 - SPL requirement with bandwidth and distance from source qualifiers2 - Size of rooms3 - Occupants of rooms4 - Stage level wash to be contended with5 - Materials used in construction of room6 - Style (seated, open room, dance area, mosh pit etc.)7 - Available mains power8 - Logistic requirements9 - Deployment (ground stack, flown, flown from venue flypoints, lifts)
Both the DVA T4 and T8 are powered.The better 'tops' are usually bi-amped. Does the crossover you are using for subs have additional outputs ? For rock punch look at the Martin H3
Mike i wasnt looking for the Martin H3 kind of cabinets, i was thinking of some array stile cabinets, like Jbl VRX or others.
Are you talking about line array cabinets?Why do you want a line array?WHat have you used in the past?
I will ask again,, What are you looking for in an "array cabinet"?Or what problem do you look to solve?
Ivan we had an old and heavy Turbosound TSM 4 and we look forward getting a new equipment.We are keeping the JBL Subs, and we though of getting some small format cabinets we could stack and add to our JBL subs. Multiple speakers in a small format cabinet for a portable sound to do rock gigs sound.I know theres a lot of parameters to check before advising a sound system set up, but we just wanted to hear some suggestions on wood cabinet brands to start checking it out. The problem i want to solve is that our Turbosound cabinets are quite old and we wanted to replacethem for some modern equipment.
Ivan thank you but i already considered all those parameters, cabs will be high enough. Thank you for the suggestions , but we are looking for those kind of cabinets.Anyone have suggestions on brands and models?
I also wonder why this post was moved to installed sound or contracting, because it is not any of them, its not an installed sound equipment and we are not contracting..
As far as I can tell looking at the logs, this topic has always been in this forum. Only 2 topics have been moved since January 19th, and neither of them were this one.What forum did you mean to post in?Mac
Ivan i said i considered that point many times.Your one single source cabinet, i guess could be a suggestion like Martin H3 , which is almost 80 kg per cabinet. Im sure its a pretty good cabinet for rock concerts, but would take us to carry at least 6 of them every weekend, plus subs, to get at least 7.000/8.000watts output (im simplifying the answere, i wont get into sound preasure levels) which is quite heavy and also hard to lift over the people heads i guess... other option you meant was to set a single source cabinet on a speaker stand, but i dont think anyone would do a 500 people gig with such an equipment... i guess it would take 5 minutes to blow out the speakers....

Am I the only one who is really confused by this?With only 1 sub per side, it would not take a very strong top to keep up.There are speakers you can put on a stick and do a 500 person rock show. But you are going to need a good many more subs.
Funny, I run 500-1000 on a weekly basis with speakers on sticks, no problems hitting 107db when I want to... I haven't blown a driver in years... They are only about 30kg too.He wants a line array because they are "better".
Just being picky-because it matters
Here's one to consider...http://jtrspeakers.com/portable/noesis-3tx/Horizontally array-able...check.Passive...check.Light...check.Good looking...check (new model with the grill anyway.)Loud...check.Sounds good....check check.You would need more than one double 18" sub per side to keep up though.John R.
