Regarding omnis vs cardioids in lavs.... I can get my cardioid WL185 WAY louder than my Shure CVL omni lav mic before feedback and tend to use it much more over the omni for that reason.
I agree with Jeremy that your job would be made much easier if you switched to cardioids where possible.  Even with my headset mics where the mic is literally touching my mouth, I can get the cardioid much louder than the omni before feedback.

In theatre applications cardioid microphones on the talent are rare, take any west end or broadway show and the actors mics are almost exclusively omni dpa’s.  Depending on the theatres set up this can be a problem, not so much in the mainstream theatres these days as sound systems are generally of the “zoned” variety.

A few years ago, I made an XLR lead tester which works on phantom power... then found out that Dave Rat sold one under his Sound Tools banner.

If anyone wants to make one...

Yes I saw that product on Dave Rat’s channel.

I think you need to audition them side by side in a couple different environments.  The "single number" specs do not define or differentiate how these sound in comparison.  While arguably voiced in the same family they do not sound identical, particularly as you go off-axis in the horizontal.  Your brain will tell you the 835 sounds "bigger" and "focused" even if the SPL meter shows only a 2 dB difference.

JBL's VerTec 4880 and 4880A subs spec nearly identical - a couple Hz here and there, a dB or 2... but there's a difference you can FEEL. The numbers do not tell the acoustic story.

Getting height on any heavy speaker is a challenge.  The options tend to have their own downsides; either flimsy or scary (tripods, pole in sub), present aesthetic issues (tripod crank lifts, Genie towers, Vermette lifts) or are expensive (rated tower & truss, rigging to structure).

In the end the 835p is another tool for the box.  For Debbie the question is mostly "do you need this tool, will it make your gig better, will it impress clients (band or provider), will it help make money or save money?  If enough answers are yes then the purchase should get a closer look.

I agree Tim, specially with the comparison test side by side. But to say “bigger” with no numbers is vague.
Thanks for the info on the Vertec Subs. I have been wondering for a while how they compare to SRX 18” Subs.

If you buy JBL bags, make sure you order the right one for you needs.

There is one for subs with castors and one without.

So I as well have been hit with a G.A.S. attack, having acquired a pair of SRX835p today, with another pair likely to follow in the not to distant future. And NAMM still to come. ARGHH !


Be sure to report back on your trials and tribulations once you have them dialed in properly.

Can some of you networking guru's point me in the right direction with some specific models I should look at?

I'm looking to build a ~4AP WiFi setup that is much better configured than what they currently have.
I COULD just hookup 4 of the AP's to one of their three Apple Airport's, but those are for smaller homes and not really designed to handle the traffic of a small business/hundreds of users.

I'm doing IT at work with Cisco products (IE3850's & C6500's), but that doesn't translate well to the smaller market. And I'm still new.

The basic network diagram that I think I need to implement (talking to them later today) is as such:
(Router/FW/Switch could be a combo unit.)

Modem -> Router -> FW -> Switch -> 4x AP's

I know plenty about AP's so UAP-AC-LR or AP-AC-PRO. But I'm at a loss for a low-end small business class router/FW/switch combo or what the needs might be of that environment.

My thoughts:
The new Ubiquiti edge max / edge router looks interesting. Might be nice to have a 'unified' system for configuration.
What about the UniFi® Security Gateway? I'm reading their forums to figure out the differences.

Sonicwall FW - It looks like a FW Router combo? Not sure which model: SOHO, TZ300, TZ400

Cisco RV325 - Looks like another basic FW & Router combo.

Is there something I should be looking at other than those 3?

Ubiquity Unifi AC Pro's - They are awesome, PoE, Multi-SID, central MGMT, support RADIUS authentication. 

Firewall Fortinet 30E Firewall

The Ubiquity PoE switches are also OK but I have a think for Cisco Catalyst so I would probably go with a reconditioned 3750G-24PS on eBay $200 for a bulletproof IoS based switch.

The lavs they bundle with these systems seem to be oriented more towards sounding somewhat intelligible over a ceiling can speaker than for musical applications.

Absolutely.  That's what they are for.

I apologize if this is in the wrong place, but didn't really see a better place.

I'm working in Stage Plot Pro right now and have noticed a bug.  When I import a graphic it looks great, but the second I rotate or resize it the quality becomes sub-par. The images become fuzzy with no definition.  I've tried on two different computers, both mac and PC.

Has anyone else experienced this?  If so, is there a way to fix it? Or it is what it is?

Thanks for the help

Finally ran out of space.

Displayed an error about SD card running out of space.  I can play the file back all the way to the end in the X32.  I have not put the SD card in the laptop to pull the files yet.  I'll probably wait until tomorrow to do that.  Getting late here on the East Coast USA...  aCk!!!  :o

Tell me about it- I left Iowa to spend a week in Texas (south of Houston) thinking I'd have some nice weather.  An ice storm that would have been inconvenient at home shut the place down-and 15 hrs below freezing froze enough pipes to create a water shortage in Galveston.  Guess I'll go home and thaw out.

The neutrals and grounds are all tied together in that fuse box(actually most of the time those were being installed, no one ran ground wires all you had was neutrals) that means any voltage drop on the neutral feed will show up as a potential difference between anything using that panel for ground and anything using your main panel for ground.  Probably just a nuisance unless the neutral wire developes a bad connection then it can be a real hazard-the reason we use 4 wires now.
