What style of music and level?  You aren't going to do a paying event with these.  They get plenty loud but the headroom isn't there to go 100ft back at concert levels. 

If it's a lawnchair event you are all set.   I think the DSR's will do 75% of what we did with KW153's. 

If I was to quote a PA on an SL150 for coverage 100' back, I would quote 6 FBT LA210's a side and 12 double 18 subs.

To Scott and others ...

I have done a full (really large with a track around the upper level) gym of senior graduates (all night lock in), a wedding at a very large event hall holding >400 with those huge round tables, and outdoor events where the crowd was between 20 to 200' from the stage with a pair of DSR112 tops over various number of subs depending on the event.  These were the largest areas I could cover with my rig and in all of the above situations, I was tickling the limit lights .... so there wasn't much more to go.

Still, the clarity remained even at a considerable distance from stage.  In the outdoor gig, things were obviously not at concert levels at the back of the crowd ... but it was for a festival/carnival, so the people at the back were there because they didn't want it any louder.

I have compared my system (DSR112's over PRX618XLF) to K12's, KW's, RCF312's, SRX715's, PRX712's, and Mackie thumps.  Only the SRX715 hung with the DSR112's.

I am also interested in the new DZR's, but really, I find that as I get older (I am 52 now), I gig less and less.  I don't feel that I will likely sell my DSR's until I completely retire from live sound (hopefully in around 10-15 years .... or when I am not in good enough shape to lug the gear any longer).

I was an early adopter (even before Debbie ;) ).  I A/B'd them in the store with a bunch of speakers.  To my ear, they simply were unequaled in output and sound quality.

I have heard a speaker I liked better though.  If you have the cash ..... and the muscle to move them, the MEYER UPA1P is a very sweet sounding powered box ;)  If I win the lottery .... man .... I am all over that setup :)

Hello All,
I have a small outdoor stage.  I notice quite a bit of low end on stage from the subs which makes sense due to the omnidirectional nature of the lower frequencies.  Even when I do not use the subs, I still notice excess low end.   Along with that I also measured a bit of an increase in 65hz and 130hz on stage.  So I was wondering if anyone has experimented with the idea of actually putting a sub on stage, and feeding it with just enough out of phase sub to cancel some of the low frequency noise.  By setting the eq up to be emphasize the 65hz and/or 130hz I may get more of an effect.

My thinking is along the lines of noise cancelling headphones and other applications of inverted feedback.

Any thoughts?
Kenny

At the end of the day, a triggered sound is a triggered sound and I am sure that the triggered kick sounds in the EAD10 are not anything special compared to other drum sounds. However,  as a whole,  taking into consideration the fact that the mic unit replaces an overhead mic, it is a nice compact package and has its advantages.

The obvious solution is to cover the entire rod with silicone  ;) ;) ;)

Ya, an insulator on a ground rod.
Why didn't I think of that.. ;D ;D
Chris.

But it's not all about the triggered sounds - I am mostly impressed with the non-triggered sound of the kit as a whole. The mics used in the unit that houses the trigger also are really good so the rest of the kit not including kick sounds nice even with zero effects being used.

FWIW: I ordered (prepaid) a distro from Amp Shop in November 2017.  I received the unit in February 2018 only after many phone calls/emails.
It was supposed to be a couple of weeks....
An excuse was they were having trouble getting some of the parts (NEMA, etc...)

I did post my trials/saga on one of these forums.....

Sounds familiar....the excuse was Eaton was late on delivering breakers. 2 weeks ago he told me they were in and they were completing the build in 2 days and shipping my units.

Does anyone have a cell number for "Jim", who owns the Amp Shop in San Bernadino, CA? THe only number I have is 909-885-7050, and that number just rings and rings now for over a week. I was told 2 weeks ago that my 2 new distros would be shipping in a few days....so far no new distros and I need them for a show this weekend. This order was placed and paid for in early February.

Whenever I get a chance to speak to my buddies that were in IT with me for a good portion of my career, nothing they say makes me regret my choice. They envy me the fact that I was able to get out and do my own thing not be quite as much under the thumb of another. Truth be told, Iím thankful for that as well.

Whatís the length and width of the room? Those heights of ceilings should not pose a big problem...the 10í end is closer to ear height than running at floor level, and even the 16í peak isnít much further. You might even get away with a perimeter loop

I have to agree to all the above. I also feel half throttle about all you ever need, and on my machine that's a bit less than 2000 rpm. My point above was that there is no reason to constantly run equipment at full throttle. It's hard on the equipment.

Yepper.

My maternal grandfather used to back off throttle position by pitch, I think.  Whatever "red line" sounded like, to my ear he'd back down by about a major third and adjust up or down depending upon conditions and load.
