I'm looking to see if there is a software solutions that is the standard I can use when designing live rigs.  I'm a live sound guy.  i've run across arraycalc but it's for d&b only.  Any better ones out there that will take more than just one brand into them?  Which do you use and why?

My church has been using yamaha LS9-32 for almost 10years now, and next year we are planning to upgrade our system, but im still thinking whether is it neccesary to upgrade our FOH mixer as we also want to add personal In Ear monitor system for our musicians.

Is our 10 years old mixer still good for today and to also use iem system?

If not, we are planning to upgrade to midas m32, any suggestion or advice?

Any input is needed.

Thanks in advance
You can use an LS9 with IEM systems, but if you want personal mixers for each musician, you may need to purchase an expansion card depending on the number of inputs you're using.  The M32 on the other hand, has the Ultranet connection for Behringer's P16 system built into it.   The LS9 itself should be fine to continue using today and will probably last a good bit longer.  I know people who have used Yamaha sound equipment for much longer than a decade without many issues.

Mixing and efx are subjective... arguing about such is not a good use of time.

SD7T certainly has had a stronghold in the past but a few of the current designers (Gareth Owen, Peter Hylenskyi) have been swapping over their productions to S6L, I believe all of Gareth's shows on the West End and Broadway are now S6L.  Some of the broadway designers have a lot of say in the software design of S6L, and of course, it's in their best interest to help Avid improve it...

My bet is it measures open circuit.
If it's not been on the receiving end of high-power use, you might find the join between the leads and the cone itself has failed. It can be repaired if you're good at that sort of thing.

When a driver burns out, the voice coil windings often find themselves loose of the voice coil former, so you'll get some kind of noise when you push on the cone, even if it's just half a mile of copper wire being smushed around at the back of the magnet.

I don't know how attached you are to these cabinets, but it might be time to consider an upgrade.
If you tell us the internal dimensions of the cabinet and bass ports, it might be possible to put in a newer high-power driver, too.


That's the critical test, taking a resistance measurement across the voice coil.

If it reads an open either the coil is bad or one of the tinsels has come loose

SSL can crossfade any variable parameter per channel and per scene (e.g. different times for different scenes).

Pressure washer literature refers to 3 types of pumps (all are piston or plunger type): Wobble (1) and axial cam (2) pumps are directly driven by the drive shaft and use pistons. Triplex plunger (3) pumps are camshaft/crank driven and use plungers.

The last time I researched pressure washers, I was steered away from the axial pumps towards the triplex pumps.  Mostly dependability/longevity reasons. Comparing one pump output depends so much on pump size and engine power. Needless to say more $$$.

Honda GX engines are preferred.  A couple features that are important to me:
- Fuel shutoff
- Low oil shutoff
- On-off switch separate from throttle
- Cast iron bore
- Warranty 36 mos on GX, 3 mos on GC engines.

At least according to this site:

I got a Honda GX attached to a triplex pump w/free shipping a couple (more than a couple) years ago. I use it a couple times a year, and I've been happy.  I can't remember GPM or pressure, but with the small tip, I can drill holes in my deck.

Looks similar to this one:

One other point true for any pressure washers: Pumps require water flowing through the pump to keep them from overheating.  An engine running with the spray handle shut off can cook the pump in very short order - compressing the same water in the pump over and over again.  Doesn't matter the type of pump.
Of course, running it dry does not do the pump any favors, either.  Very easy to do.

The marketing and reviews just left me having to ask.......

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.

For an infrequently-used tool, have you considered electric?  The basic 120v 15A ones probably aren't quite as powerful as the Stihl in your first link, but they are cheap and always work if you're willing to work a bit slower.

I converted my gas pressure washer to electric (8 hp Tecumseh to 5 hp single-phase motor). Since I own lots of big cords already and have 240 V outlets around my properties this was a great change for me. FWIW. -F
