You mean Unisphere IIIs?
Yes, before 1966...

Vocal speakers need to be up in the air above people's heads.  Ideally aimed down to cover the audience area.  When you do that you loose boundary reinforcement and it's much harder to get bass.  High end subs can be made to work flown but to get the most out of what you have, you want bass speakers on the floor.  A DXS12 or 15 on the floor will way outperform any two good MI grade 15s up on stands.  For a pop band in a bar you just want the kick drum to keep up with the bass amp and balance things.  Most times taking the blanket out of the drum and tuning it up a bit works just fine.  But if you need the help, then a small sub will work.  I use my DXS12 as part of the drum monitor on larger gigs.  But I've used it a few times with either the DSRs or some K10s, which it will more than keep up with for band work.  If most of your instruments are making sufficient noise on stage a pair of DXR10s and a DXS12s will carry the vocals, the occasional acoustic guitar and a bit of keyboards if necessary to spread them out in a small to moderate bar at adult volumes.
Also, check out the Alto SXM112 monitors.  Great for small bar gigs.  Steep angle so you can have them right in front of you, very small footprint and great punch though on vocals.  I've used them in lots of situations indoors and out and they punch way above their weight (and price).  I've had one side by side with a ZLX12 with a noisy band and you couldn't tell the EV was on (the leader/singer insisted on the EVs as they sounded boomy and masculine with nothing else going on, but when the band was all hacking away the Altos carried the day).

Are you using with the X32 or with a DAW?

What bugs me is recent "period pieces" set in the 1950s through 1970s that use Shure Beta 58s (which were not released until the late 1980s) instead of SM 58s.
You mean Unisphere IIIs?

And Scott, Bose put those bullet ports on the home speakers as well around the same time as the "pro" boxes.  The original PA speakers didn't have them.  Just 8 speakers in a pointy black Tolex box with black grillecloth.

I've used them in the past. Great and fast service.

I tried to go their site a while back and it seemed like they have closed up shop. I know they were just a father and son with a side gig, so they may have decided it was too much hassle. Hopefully nothing more serious than that. But I haven't heard anything definitive.

Anyone yet had a chance to use the Axient Digital systems and what were your impressions?  I am seriously considering purchasing 16 channels worth when the ADX transmitters become available.

A modern 15" speaker at best usually only gets down to around 40hz. This is pretty darn low, but utilizing that low end and giving it the thump that many want eats LOTS of headroom.
And totally destroys mid/vocal sound quality. The worst I have ever heard my DXR15s sound was with a DJ pushing them with bass heavy tracks. If you're gonna buy a sub anyway I'd suggest opting for DXR10s and a single DXS15 sub, should make for a potent and really compact PA.

Trying to set up the monitor mix app with my TF3, and everything seemed to go smoothly, until I tried to listen. The board is connected and being controlled by the app on the phones, however no audio is being received to the phones. All of the usual "on" buttons are engaged and volume is up everywhere. Is there a button I'm missing somewhere to engage it? Or worse, was I informed incorrectly about the boards ability to actually monitor through phones? Thanks!

I donít know if this is a serious inquiry or not, but itís been along time since I played along with one of these, so here goes...

The remote apps handle only control of the host mixer. No audio whatsoever passes from the mixer to the phone or tablet. Ever.

It was only a month ago that a fellow musician and I were discussing the X32 apps sometimes having problems with iOS 11. He said it didnít matter, the M apps worked (which I knew) and the M apps sounded better anyway (yeah, news to me, too!).  ::)

Slight topic swerve, but anybody use (or know what happened to) Waves Universe?  Looks like they just disappeared into thin air.

You gotta see the bollywood movies here! Compared to that Hollywood is a lesson in period accuracy
