Jbl Srx818sp casters
« on: March 29, 2018, 09:23:37 pm »

Hi there fam I need a little help...i was going to buy the jbl casters wk-4s I believe there called for my 4 srx subs for 89 dollars each set,but I think I saw here somewhere that there's better ones and cheaper..if any of you that own these subs can you give me the info where to find some good ones?

I was thinking to put some home depot casters that fit but some dealer told me that they are cheap and to just go with the jbl ones.

Yes - contact Mike. I got mine from him - The Penn Elcoms are much nicer than the JBL ones and a bit cheaper too.

Looking at retiring. Local PA market has shrank to 2 guys with guitars and bose l1 compacts or expecting full line array and 16 movers on stage for $300... no middle left going back to event DJ stuff, half the work for twice the pay.

IMNSHO (the opinion you didn't ask for), casters on subs are generally a bad idea.  With only 4 of them you can stack them in 2's and use a hand truck or build caster boards and use half the casters you'd otherwise need.

That said, Mike Pyle is a great guy to work with (we have several vendors on the forums that are top-notch folks, we're lucky) and he will give you good advice, good prices and will ship quickly.

Hey Debbie do you have the part number because one guy from Penn Elcoms said they might be this one size but he's not sure.

W0985 -v6 with brakes and
W0990 -v6 without brakes I believe

W09000-v6 and W09008-V6 are a bit wider.

You need the cart, but not for the subs.

Either put casters on them or build a wheel board.  Getting them up on a cart to teeter totter is a major pain in the ass.

I built caster boards for my PRX718's and they stay strapped to them (straps through the handles). I really like the fact that I can move the subs easily if I need to without flipping them over BUT they sit a bit higher and the boards need tightening and a slight reposition every few shows. As Scott says, a dolly cart would be harder to use.

 I use the Penn Elcoms for my SRX's.

I started with strap down generic dolly's but technically those aren't wheel boards.  I have 4 giant ass EAW horns that I use for lawn gigs and they came with real big boy wheel boards that had a strip and routed pegs that fit the speakers.  They drop on and off the wheelboards and stay put. 

Over time I plan on building some for other rigs (probably KW153's next) 

Our STX828's and KW153's are on casters with drop over covers.  I can stack the 181's  I need help to stack the 828's

Mine work great - the ratchet straps are easy enough to tighten if need be and they pretty much stay in place.

These 4" casters are better than the stock JBL ones, but the bolt holes don't "quite" line up. It's close enough to fudge it with a drill bit, but it's not a simple bolt-on couple of minutes...
We used the 990's and they are great. They are sealed enough not to rattle during use, and it's really nice not to have to store and hunt for a dolly board.

I have two sets of WK-4 casters for SRX-718S.  $50 each set if you're interested.

Hi glynng,

This thread is from march 2018 so the OP has probably already taken care of this by now.
