I was hesitant to jump on the DSR bandwagon as well, but eventually did (when I found a mint used pair, for low $).
They are really just outstanding tops for the price and footprint.

One good testament was 2 weeks ago when a buddy of mine called in a favor.
He covered 2 gigs for me when I got the flu (we're both singers), so he called in a last minute favor needing sound for his band.  His band are all my buddies, so I was actually excited to do it.  They were all IEMs, so stage noise was minimal (awesome start).
DSR112's with a pair of JBL SRX718s (powered by iTech 6k)...just a crushing small club rig.
It sounded excellent, and they are an amazing band, so it was one of the first times I got to stand out in a crowd and just listen and smile.

And of course - what is the first question everyone asks once they get to hear their band through a nice little PA like this....?   "Hey, what model are those Yamaha speakers??!!...and how much do they cost?"

I'm totally satisfied with the DSRs.  But obviously will follow the news on the DZR line as they start to hit the streets.

(I'm going to credit Debbie for pushing the DSRs enough to make me finally consider them)

Absolutely! My company is about going above and beyond (as I'm sure most/all of the companies on this forum are as well, to varying degrees anyways).

Reminds me, gig earlier this year (great gig, good pay, etc). They popped confetti for their event. Mountains of it. Had some helpers after clean for maybe 10min while we loaded out. Still everywhere. So after loadout my crew and I vacuumed the room until it was 95+% clean. I felt that was above and beyond.

I wasn't going to spend an extra hour making it perfect, the venue's custodial team could get the few last bits when they cleaned. But at least they weren't walking into a "oh my god I hate these people" instead it was. "wow, this place is pretty clean, thanks."

The hard part is when it isn't a good gig and good pay, do you still do the right thing?

A friend of mine replaced the speakers in his old CSX community subwoofers rated at 300 watts each with some 600 watt speakers. Since there are two per cabinet would the cabinet wattage then be 1200 watts? If so the recommended amplifier per side should be rated around 2000 Watts into that mode (which I believe is 4 Ohms) ,correct?

Thanks,
John

If the replacement 600w speaker units are 8 ohm and wired in parallel, the cabinet would be nominally 4 ohms at 1200 watts. Some people subscribe to the "don't exceed the rated speaker power" method of sizing power amps, and others subscribe to the "use 1.5x" or thereabouts the rated power, with the understanding that they need to watch the maximum voltage delivered to the speakers by limiting, attenuation, etc. The other comment that is sure to be made here is the suitability of the replacement speakers to the given cabinet design. The speaker parameters should be carefully matched to the cabinet design and what is intended to achieve; some speakers with "double the rating" may not perform as expected if they are not a good match for the cabinet or the intended bandwidth of use.

It's all about solving problems for the customer.

That being said, it might be amusing to sneak a "trash removal fee" clause into your next show contract. :)

The canopy I have is apparently water resistant, and not actually water-proof.  Where I'm located, it's common to get a huge downpour for about 1 minute... and then it moves on.  I noticed water seeping from all areas of the canopy, but could not find any holes.  After that, I always have tarps ready to deploy over the gear, even when under the tent.  I'm glad the XTF has been working for you... it's on my list.

I haven't had any issues with rain getting through my canopy. I also tarp off all equipment and lower the canopy on overnighters.

I would agree with this.  I have a JD 4110 compact utility tractor (21HP diesel, fully hydraulic) and I get very little useful work done at less than 1/2 rated speed (on my tractor that's more like 1200-2400 RPM, but same principle).


+1.
I have a Kubota B2910 and a Kubota TG1860, both diesels and get the same results as Tom.

SQ and Qu pricing isn't close.  You have to factor in the I/O.
Only if you want extra I/O.

If you just go with the onboard I/O, both QU and SQ offer 16, 24 and 32 channel variants, all with full I/O count and 1 fader per channel.

1800-3600 rpm sounds like a minimum speed recommendation to me (not below 50% max).

While I haven't found a definitive published explanation, cavitation in the low pressure side from too low RPM sounds plausible. While my explanation may be myth, the advice to not run them loaded at too low throttle seems pretty universal, including from people I trust (people who repair them).

Of course this is an audio forum so caveat lector.
