Thanks so much for the suggestions.  Much appreciated.

So today I get this video showing the "problem".  I don't even know what to call that thing - "octopus stand"?

He'll have a new tripod stand on Sunday.  Thanks again.

Even on it's best day that stand in the video was never going to fully support a mic at the end of the fully extended boom at or close to a 90 degree angle.
That stand was a Radio Shack special.

I think you might have misunderstood me. Each sub is powered by its own XTi2000 in bridge. Is that not an okay thing to do?

I forgot to mention I am using a DBX Drive Rack PA2 to run the mains. It will be doing the crossover for the high/mid and lows for the main speakers.

I haven’t been running the subs off the drive rack though because I use them off of an aux send from my mixer.

Edit: I see now that powering my subs from 1 XTi4000 subs in bridge would be poor judgement. That slipped my mind. I think that’s what you might have meant?

Sorry I was in a hurry and missed that you were using an XTI2000 per sub.

Are these XTI's the older silver face models as the model 2000 and 4000 would suggest or are they the newer 02 versions.
With the XTI's you can do all of the crossover functions in the, the 02 versions have better limiting though.
You need to down the Band Manager from Crown to get into the amp and fully program it.

Nathan, check into the gossip.

If the rumor is the provider is giving up the venue then maybe you can go chat with the current provider. Ask straight up, “I heard a rumor that you are letting go of xvenue”. Maybe they confirm it. If so, ask if it ok for you to talk to the venue.

If the rumor is the venue is planning to drop the current provider, see if you can learn more and have a chat with them?

This would worry me more.  Knowing this game, gigs tend to need prying out of others dead hands.  If someone is giving up a gig, there are probably many reasons you should run!

Especially with wireless - you get what you pay for.  Expect narrower frequency range, poor companding, higher noise floor, higher RFI, and more.  Will it work?  As long as you aren't expecting Sennheiser EW300 or PSM900 level of performance - possibly.

This would be just to try it out. I don't see the band laying out real money for IEMs, and as the drummer I can run wired. But one guitarist may want to try it. I thought of it as an option as he sent me a link to some Galaxy stuff which I can't imagine is too good.

I can understand your argument about buying name brand, known subs and I will consider that. One of the places I've done sound with a few times has a pair of those Danley's and single 18" drivers simply do not keep up with how much sound we are trying to make. The EDM community loves bass more than anyone else. In fact the last show I did at that venue we used 4 (yes 4) cabinets of dual 18s to get the wall shake the event coordinators wanted.

As for the power soft amplifiers, they simply do not fit into my price range. I know a couple people personally who'd be willing to sell me PL380s they have currently collecting dust.

If you can get PL380s for under $1k each - go for it!

My point regarding the subs above - assuming premium drivers - is that horn or tapped horn designs deliver the most bass possible per driver.  4x 18" drivers in the form of Orbit Shifters, DBH218's, TH118's - is going to be far ahead of any 2x 218 front loaded subs. 

Going from budget drivers in a front loaded sub, to premium drivers in a front loaded sub is a step up.  The next step up is lots more subs, or more efficient subs (horn loaded).  Hence the recommendation to skip the higher cost front loaded designs and go a step better. 

Regarding EDM bass - I'd also argue that Danley is a top brand in that genre.  The systems I've had a hand designing, knowing there was EDM style bass needed - has always been Danley.

Just to rule out something simple; the Console is connected to a LAN port on the router, correct?

Dave

Router on has 1 lan/wan port. I'm beginning to think that this little router can't do what i want it to do.

IEM receivers have peak limiters so that something going wrong doesn't blow your ears out.  I would make sure that there was something in the line.  I don't know what kind of noise comes though in an RF drop out but that's also something to consider.

Thanks, that's the kind of questions/concerns I was looking for. The P2 has a limiter as well, since it's a headphone amp, so I should be fine on that end. I've used my P1 already wired (haven't used the P2 yet), wired from an aux out on the mixer without incident.

If that's the only issue, it sounds like it might be doable.

For the applications you've mentioned, replacing the subs with better would be a very good decision.  Replacing them with something unknown with zero resale value - not so much.   JTR Orbit Shifter or Danley TH118 are the two I'd look at first. 

After deciding on the subs - then look at amps.  The PL380 is good, but Powersoft K3 or K10 would unlock more potential, depending on sub.
