For our L-Acoustics wedges (X8, X12, X15 HiQ) we designed some cases with hinged tops, that open to the sides.



Yuck.
I'm sorry, but I would never accept a case like that from a rental company.
The clamshells are the best solution, and that's why all the big boys do it that way.

Okay, this is new....

I like it.  I can see where it would take a little more floor real estate to open, but not much.  And one guy can easily load and unload the case without ever picking up any part of the case.  I also like that, while it's a unique design, it's pretty self-explanatory. 

i'm fairly sure i'd be "reminding" stagehands quite often to not leave them lying around open so they don't get bent/destroyed.  But there are always tradeoffs.

Slick.  I love seeing new ideas....

Edit:

P.S.  Just realized that you can roll these in double stacked, and then unload the top case BEFORE you have to take it down.  And you can reverse the process on the out.  Now i want these everywhere on everything.  :)

done this is exactly what I was looking for this is perfect!!

I had something in my mind like the clamshell case but it didn't fold and had side entry with slam latches ... but this is way better the unload before install is awesome ... I'll probably follow up with a pic ... feel free to keep sharing everyone !!

Fulcrum has a line of horn loaded cabinets that claim pattern control to below 300Hz.
It is hard to tell from the drawing on the pdf, but the design does look similar to a Danley.
https://www.fulcrum-acoustic.com/assets/pdf/Spec%20Sheets/Prod%20Spec,%20AH96%20v6.pdf

They say that for every action there is a reaction. If FIR filters were added to a Danley Synergy Horn, besides latency, would the FIR filters have any other negative effect on their performance?
Fulcrum and Danley are similar, but very different "under the hood". 

Besides latency, the other potential issue is manufacturer support and thus product price.   Do they build their own amps, do they provide settings for other amps/DSP?  It's not trivial and costs have to rise.

Not a fan of the beta 58 but in this case, I would stuff it into something like the old ART Tube EQ and offset the built in DJ smiley curve.

Or buy a VX -5... my band sings on vx-5s.  We love em

This brings to mind the question of using connectors like USB, RJ-45, etc, in heavy use situations like sound reinforcement.

You say they use it every week for 2+ years. That's over 100 USB stick insertion cycles, probably.

What is the longevity of the USB connector?

I don't know the answer. Doing some googling finds this link to Geekhack which says a full size port has a life of 1500 insertion cycles, based on a Wikipedia article . I've scanned that long article twice and don't see the numbers, but I miss things. The Geekhack poster also says that the smaller USB connectors are less resistant to wear, which seems counterintuitive.

Regardless, it does sound like a connector problem.
USB is a great consumer connection.  We have an X32 at my church as well, we use the USB recorder - with known good thumb drives - as the backup recorder but not primary.

I used 2x4 scrap and some rubber runner material cut to fit, top and bottom.  Worked fine

If you see this gear, please PM me.

Perhaps the silver lining is that your stolen gear is pretty customized / unique?  Should make them easier to spot.

I've heard of people having success with posting "WTB" ads on CL for something close to what's been stolen (eg.  Wanted:  Older Fender Tube Amps).  Some criminals are dumb enough to try to sell somebody their own gear.

Best of luck!

Dave

the 4ohm load that the cabinets would present,
Assuming these are double 18 cabs. They could be one of the single 18 versions.. Sb180, T18, or Eliminator, hopefully the OP will come back and fill in some info.

Mr Maddox - I did consider prefacing my answer with "not really an answer to your question" but why break with the tradition of the board?

I'm not a plug in kinda guy but thinking of it in a hardware sort of way ( without the hardware ) leads me to consider looking for a plug-in of some sort of programmable VCA function - a level above X dbm drives instance one to full gain and drives instance two to max attenuation.  VCA instance one feeds a signal chain with the appropriate comp / EQ / what ever to handle loud levels while instance two drives the other appropriate processing.  Absent signal above the threshold the VCA plugs are set to full attenuation on ch one and full gain on ch two.  Output of the mic pre drives a comparator ( plenty of Waves comparator plug-ins lying around right? ) which drives the VCA control point ( I said this was hardware thinking) while the inputs to the VCAs are feed thru what ever delay you can tolerate that still gives the comparator / VCA combo time to wake up and get to work.  Sum the outputs of the signal chain to taste.

No idea on earth whats actually out there to accomplish such gymnastics .

Mr. Casey i picked you at random to reply to, so i'm not singling you out i promise.  :)

For Clarification:  I'm not looking for a trick to accomplish this with existing mixer technology.

The Behringer I-Nuke series has shown to be rather dependable and surprisingly quite close to rated spec. While I would not plan on flogging them, they should be just fine and the price is hard to beat. The EP series of Behringer is very much an QSC RMX rip off. Nothing inherently wrong with them either and are reliable enough. Again hard to beat for the price.

I myself am not a fan of the QSC GX series of amps. They are very much dumbed down to fit into the market segment. I don't find their power to weight ration very nice either.

I have no experience with the Yamaha amps mentioned, but I am sure they will be more than good enough.

Given the choices you presented, the Behringer I-Nuke stuff is very hard to beat and the option I would go with.
