Think how hard the electrons have to work to make the turn.

And some of the high frequency rubs off on the walls of the insulation.

Oh I see. But who would run a little mixing board like that on 240 volts in the USA?  ;D

The guy that buys 3 wire feeder cable to run xxx feet to his system.  If all of his gear will run on 240, it would be safer to run everything on 240 and use the third wire as a ground rather than bottlegging a neutral off of it. :D

To give a little background, for what it's worth, AES3 is a balanced 110 Ohm simplex (one-way) system. It expects a 110 Ohm source impedance driving a transmission line of 110 Ohm characteristic impedance that is terminated in a receiver that presents a 110 Ohm load. The edge rates are modest by modern digital communication standards and AES3 is quite tolerant of imperfect conditions. As a result AES3 may be split among any number of daisy-chained receivers (within reason) so long as each but the last has a high, say > 10 kOhm, input impedance. The last in the chain, of course, needs to terminate the line in 110 Ohms, to avoid reflections. I've seen gear (don't remember where) that lets you lift the terminators on the AES inputs to do just such daisy-chaining.

Also, for what it's worth, attached is the circuit for a little AES3 distribution box that I built. It's been running continuously for about 7 years with no problems. Its input is configured for coaxial S/PDIF (the consumer unbalanced standard) but it could easily be reconfigured for proper AES3.

when "pushed harder"
My point exactly. When pushed hard. All speakers suffer when pushed hard. Some may suffer more, some may suffer less. I've heard Meyers suffer just as bad as those KWs I'm describing, I've heard SRM450s suffer MUCH more. Yamaha or JBL boxes may suffer less, that doesn't mean I'd want to use them anywhere near their limiter. They'll still suffer, even slightly.
I'm not saying the QSCs are a better choice, I'm saying that's all I've used and thus can recommend.   :)

K-SUB is a bandpass sub exhibiting a "one note wonder" when doing live bands.
I've only used them in a somewhat problematic room, but got lots of compliments on the kick & bass sound that day ( vocals not so much   ::) ). I've also heard them outdoors once, they were actually very impressive. Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't find anything wrong about them, really.  ???
Maybe they don't go horribly low like a dual 18", but they certainly didn't sound "one-note" to me. Have you actually heard those as well, or is it just an assumption based on the design? Not all bandpass boxes are created equal... Just seems odd that you'd describe them as "one-note".

The Noesis 3tx can be had with a 60x40 or 90x60 rotatable horn.

Looks like some sort of ribbon.  Coles is a good guess.

Best kick drum sound I've ever heard was a session I did where they put a Coles a few feet in front of the drum.  When I went to mix things down there were 4 other mic tracks.  From a SubKick to a U87.  I ended up just using the Coles and a taste of B52 for more attack.

Touring live with old ones though!  I'll bet somebody's got some business replacing ribbons.

If you're serious about whatever it is you plan to do with these speakers you need to treat it like a real business.

Here is what is going to happen if you continue down your current path:

 You will have failures during paid gigs and will have no way to recover.  Then you will have to struggle twice as hard to rebuild your reputation. Plus, by using mediocre performing equipment; you will hold yourself at the lowest pay level, perhaps indefinitely.


Reinforcing this point in case you missed it in the original post and all the similar statements made by others since then which apparently you aren't very open to.  If you're hellbent on going about this the wrong way you are not going to get any moral support here. From your last post you seem to already have a plan of attack which based on your convoluted statements seems destined to fail as it simply doesn't make good sense. 

Re-read this entire thread and then  open yourself up to the possibility that either you have no idea what you are doing or aren't very good at communicating it, then re-read the entire thread again. 

Then take Ray's advise and start a new thread to work out a real plan that begins with you asking advice to creating a new viable plan, not asking how to accomplish the foolhardy plan you already have come up with.

There are gems of wisdom in this thread and many other threads on this forum that could save you years of making mistakes and tons of money making them.   Every  moment you spend here is worth it, even if in your mind is seems that you are just arguing back and forth with the members.

Right after I first joined I was very argumentative  in a multi page thread about why SPL matters and watts don't until my thick skull finally understood why my question about how many watts I needed was simply the wrong question to ask. It is initially very hard  to acknowledge to yourself that your preconceived ideas may be founded in nonsensical logic.  If you're smart you'll eventually learn to love to be proven wrong. I learn new things on this forum every day.

I was unaware you could split AES...usually recommend a AES distribution amp but it appears Whirlwind has a passive box to do just that.

My friend has a small powered fulcrum acoustics PA and uses these. One AES cable goes to each stack and hits this splitter which has one out labeled sub and one labeled top. Super slick and has been totally reliable.

I don't own any right now but I've used the Shure SB900 batteries regularly and they're brilliant. The highly accurate time remaining indicator is great. "3 hours" to an accuracy of 15 minutes is a lot more nerve-calming than "two mysterious bars". They charge up to 90% quite quickly and its great to be able to do that without taking the battery out. Absolutely wonderful for a long day of ted talks. I'll be buying for my ULXD soon.
