They've been out for 8 years, most of the "shiny new" has worn off.  EAW touted them as a major improvement over the SB1000 but my recollection is that output didn't *seem* significantly greater compared to the SB1000.  I recall they sounded a little tighter and might have gone a wee bit lower.

While working as a stage hand I'd moved a whole bunch of 1000/1001 but can't recall any in the last 5 years.  If you've already got EAW inventory and the price is right, go for it.  I'm not sure I'd spend the price of new SB1001 unless I was filling out an existing rig and couldn't find trusted, used gear.

So, it's basically "1 more" than an SB1000...  :)

That was my aural impression.

Did an install last week in a 750 cap room with two SB2001 a side, very impressive output and sound quality.

Highly recommended.

So would that be "1001 more" than an SB1000? Sorry I couldn't resist.  Those always looked impressive on paper, was the rest of the rig EAW?

Yes.

Itís one QX564+544 as mains with two SB2001 a side. MK2366 frontfills and VFR89i delays. All powered and processed by Powersoft.

The SB2001's are dual 21" subs.  I recently installed three 2001's with the center one turned 180 degrees and set up as a cardioid array in a 600 seat church. PowerSoft amps with internal processing here also.  They wanted low bass and they got what they wanted!

while we're at it would a ma 9000i be enough amp for the 1001's one channel per box or is going to take a 12000i to get the job done { live sound } thanks.

I wouldn't run a MA90o0i in 2 ohms. SB2001 is a dual 4ohm load.

Also, you would need a UX8800 to process it, so you might as well look into Powersoft. They do EAW processing internally in their amplifiers and can do 2ohm all night.
