I can't remember the last time I was asked to mic a HH yet I've NEVER lost the HH in the mix.

Funny you should say that, because until last Saturday I've have instantly agreed.

Outdoor show, municipal park amphitheater, "C" level national act for support.  Due to artist arrival times it was decided to set up and check opener first, then set headline up behind them and do their check.  In the "re-changover" back to the opener the HH line didn't get patched and it was plenty obvious it was missing.   :-[

Maybe it's my choice of mic placement or the way I user overheads when I'm mixing, but I'd never so not heard high hats before...

Chink, ca-runch. Sizzle.  YMMV.

You may want to look at the Powered SP line.  I guess they came out with little to no fan fair. Would make your life easier.

Only problem is I already got the amps, wires, speakers, etc. And I am a little old school, so I'm here on the learning curve of things. The system sounds really good, and I keep getting compliments as those SP4s sound really clean and can get really loud. But now my thing is adding more subs for a complete full range experience on bigger places.

I recently saw a pair of JBL PRX-418s' for a low price, only been used "twice" and he's willing to let me test them with my amps. Do you guys have any input on these subs? They're advertised as follows:

Frequency Range   35 Hz – 250 Hz
Frequency Response   52 Hz – 120 Hz
System Sensitivity   95 dB SPL (1w@1m)
Power Rating,            800 W / 1600 W / 3200 W (Continuous/Program/Peak)
Rated Maximum SPL   130 dB SPL peak
Nominal Impedance   8 ohms

However, it's using the SWS1000 driver, which is rated at 1000W RMS (2000W musical? Not sure what they mean by that). Anyone know what's going on there? Are these subs any good?

I know my amps won't push them to the max, but they're pretty close. If these are a good match, I'm sure the subs will be enough to keep up with the SP4s right? (I also currently have a SP218)

Thanks again!

     Overlooked on pressure washers the quality of the pump.
CAT makes some of the best pumps with internal pressure regulators, this helps when you're not pulling the trigger to keep the pressure down so it doesn't damage the pump.
     a lot of cases people will lay down the handle while they're moving things and leave the motor running, if it does not have an internal pressure regulator this can shorten the life of the pump.
      Most of the motors built by everyone except for a few maybe Kohler and Honda are Briggs & Stratton engines .
      Another point to be considered is the pump oil should be changed often,
 it extends the life of the pump.

Looks like a nice toaster.  I was hoping for something in the 240 volt arena (or even 3-phase:  what the Hobart offers).  Just kidding!  Though, Breville may be my next toaster.

Years ago I considered Husqvarna, but noticed a lot of their chain saws on sale as a remanufactured item.  Since then, I have steered cleared, however, for those whom have their chainsaws have said good things about them.  Not quite a chainsaw, but I do have a Husqvarna garden-tractor that's been top-notch for almost 10 years.  Ryobi seems to be synonymous with hand tools... I'll take a look at their washer - thanks for the link.
Yeah, my use would not quite be commercial, but it would definitely get a work out with all the crap around the house/property.


One thing I didn't point out is that the Ryobi is a 4 cycle Honda as specified, but the washer idles down when you let off the trigger. It's not a part of the trigger itself, so it must sense need and goes to full pressure immediately as needed. Saves fuel and very low noise levels. Wicked cool washer.

Anyone buying or using a pressure washer should not only have a selection of heads, but should specifically have a rotating / orbital head. That's the type head I use and am using to strip paint off the house where needed. The only problem being they're strong enough to chew up cedar shingles if you're not careful.

Looking for a speaker that is Dante enabled, runs on PoE (i.e. no external power required), and isn't a ceiling mounted paging type speaker.

Oh and weatherproof for use outdoors also. 

Looking for something to go along with a laser light show type event experience.

RDL makes an amplifier that's small enough that you could possibly open up a weatherproof speaker and put it inside, or fit into a small pelican type case mounted on the outside.

It uses POE++ and is 35W @ 70V so you may be able to extend another speaker or two off of it.
-Assuming very efficient speakers you can get a fair amount of volume out of 35W.

Not Created Equal: One Engineer’s Take On The Modern EQ Process
While some prefer to let the new “automated” gear do the lion’s share of the EQ setup, others may prefer to go more by ear.
By Greg Stone • Posted in Reading Room on August 14, 2018

From the outside looking in, the term “equalization” seems harmless enough: Using equipment to tame or enhance audio frequencies in order to obtain a more balanced overall effect.

When I’m working a gig, after the old “Are you the DJ?” question, the next thing I usually hear involves EQ: “How do you do it?” While some prefer to let the new “automated” gear do the lion’s share of the EQ setup, others go by ear. My own preference is a combination of both.

But whether I’m using a single 1/3-octave unit or a string of EQs for each channel in the system, my process remains the same. Once the PA is up and operating normally, I address the room, using a pink noise generator and RTA device to check the overall response curve of the house. This gives me an idea what the room needs.

If I could HPF at 2k I would.  Too much snare bleed in the HH mic most of the time.

Back in my analog recording studio days we almost never put a separate mic on the HH, we'd aim the snare mic to get the desired balance.  That was 30+ years ago and needs/desires change, but instead of fighting something, make it work for you.

I can't remember the last time I was asked to mic a HH yet I've NEVER lost the HH in the mix.
