The response of the BC415s in the stacked configuration is a little different than the end to end.


I think that should have read BC218...
Interesting response difference from "eye" to stacked.
The white painted, LED lit interior, is a great idea for a club install :)

If you go for a custom internal color, I suggest white.  That way you can use RGB LEDs and make the inside any color you want.  We did this on some BC415s and it was quite interesting.

White is a great suggestion.

You wouldn't happen to have images or a video clip of the white internal color with the RGB led effect? You have my email if it's more appropriate to send this by email.

Thank you.

You are correct. Sorry

Here is a little video of 2 BC415s and 2 SH96HOs in white with the LEDs

They were tied into the light console so the light guy had control over the colors

Here's one with some people in it

The subs sounded all distorted and not loud at all.  I could barely here them (or the system) over the dogs barking outside.  ;D

That looks amazing. Do you know where the led's were placed in relation to the front opening of the SH96HOs?

That is the tough part.

I made a "frame" that went over the front of the cabinet and it stuck out in front of the edges of the horn enough to mount the RGB strips on the backside of the frame.

The problem is that the frame had to be large enough to get the leds to get past the flare break in the cabinet.

Yes, there was probably some sonic interference, but in this case the "cool look factor" was more important.

It was fun to do, but not practical to manufacture.

Of course you could paint them white and simply video map onto them, but that would cost more.  but would also give a lot more variety and possibilities.

It sounds like you could have the budget for a pair of good color LED profile spots. Since this is fixed install, they could be mounted far away and with their knives be focused accurately on the horn. That stuff can look magical. Or, as Ivan suggests, video projection. Only problem with these that I can see is that potential haze/smoke would give away the source of light.

That's a good idea. LED spots are easier on the pockets than a projector.
