Haven't used them, but I am a little sceptical about their claims - there's only so much a reflex-loaded 12" cone can do in the bass department.

I run them... haven't used in such a context.  Anyone in VA feel free to reach out and I'm happy to set up a demo ... they're the real deal.

If you are willing, give some specifics on your experiences with the DV

*Type of work you are doing with them
*Size of crowds
*Size of area that you are covering
*Levels
*Are you using two a side or just one.
*Genres
*Subs in use?
*How do they compare to the other systems that you use?

Thanks

Chris,
120/126 dB for a 4" voice coil 12" with 3000 watts seems a reasonable claim.

The use of an isophasic wave guide instead of a conventional horn certainly will impart a "distinctive" dispersion pattern ;^).

I have a video I took of mine out in a field. It was taken with an iPhone X. No external microphone. Make sure you use good headphones or speakers. I was quite impressed myself. Facebook https://facebook.com/AdubsDJService/videos/1598908303463562/ YouTube https://youtu.be/GKOLe7lYJsI

Their claims are usually measurements not calculations.

BASSBOSS products in my experience do what they say do.

Not a fan of making a judgement from a phone video however you will note that it is very clear and coherent but not very loud.  Background noise easily gets on top of the program material.

A crowd of revelers would be very hard to get on top of without more PA.

For $3k you could have a Yamaha DSR 112 mounted on a pole over a JTR Captivator 212 powered sub...coverage wouldn’t be as wide as the Bassboss box claims but would probably be 1.5x as loud with clarity.
