Maybe I'm missing something. How does it have 8 universes with only one DMX (or are the 3p and 5p separate) output?

I rarely connect powered speakers directly to the console, the board is almost always running through a snake of some kind. With a rackmount stagebox, either digital or analog, I mount a rackmount power panel or power strip directly under the stagebox in the rack. It makes patching things easy and pretty clean.

In the off chance that I'm using a small analog snake I either drop one of those power strips near the snake box, or just use quad boxes. The other option is to run a small fan to fan snake from the console/stagebox to where the power distro is. That's usually easier than running so much power to where the audio outputs are.

Tripp Lite makes nice rackmount power strips that don't break the bank, and they're great if everything can live on one circuit. I've also made my own single space panels that have 5 duplex outlets on individual circuits.

My siamese cables use Edison connectors on both ends, so I can easily daisy chain them or split the power out on the far side for multiple speakers. Each cable has 2 XLR lines, one going each way, so I can daisy chain mixes at the side of the stage if I want, or use the spare line for a mic or whatever. It's handy sometimes.

I always found Atlas stands to be pretty close to indestructible.

Hi Lindsay,

Have you heard the DL1608 effects in the past couple years since they were upgraded?
To my ears, they are quite good.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

Yes, an output of ~137 dB would result at the frequencies that reach the 103 dB sensitivity specification with each 4 ohm driver powered with ~1250 watts, same as an amp capable of 5000 watts into two ohms for the pair.

Increasing from one to two "loads"  (driver/enclosure) increases sensitivity by 3dB.

Two drivers/enclosures each of 100 dB sensitivity would be equal to one dual driver/enclosure of 103 dB sensitivity. The one watt one meter sensitivity, (2.83V into 8 ohms, 2.00V at 4 ohms, 1.41V for 2 ohms) for the pair of drivers remains the same whether driven by one or two amplifiers.

Thanks for trying to help me Art, but I'm still not sure I understand.  I would like to know what the calculated output of this sub will be if I power it with two amp channels that produce 1250 watts @ 4 ohms.  Can I simply add the two channels together (2500 watts) and then use the supplied 103 dB sensitivity spec and do the math?  If so, I come up with an output of ~137 dB which is pretty close to Jeff's usable output spec of 138 dB.  Did I do that correctly?

So, still pining for my DTR radios and wondering if anyone had heard of any manufacturer that's come up with a replacement.
Even though the features were some of the best I've found, I had to unload them due to a few show-stoppers:
1. Latency
2. Shoulder mic low volume
3. No good in high ambient noise environments

The range, features, programmability, battery life, size, durability, license-free functionality, etc. were the best, but it seems analog is still the only way to go for production radios.

Still keeping my eyes out for anything that doesn't have the show-stoppers, other than the usual suspects (e.g. not interested in renting CP200s).

Now, if someone would just make a 900mhz analog, user-programmable radio with the build quality of a Moto or Kenwood, I'd be all over it. Maybe it exists? That's why I'm throwing this post out there...

Andrew,  A quick look on Henry Cohen's site didn't jog my memory.  He brought digital radios to the Republican Convention that used distributed base stations with Ethernet backhaul. They worked very well and the recovered audio held together in some fairly high BER situations.

I am sure Henry will chime in and bootstrap my highly deficient synapses.

Here is an edited version of something I wrote about buying an Amazon Fire tablet.

I bought an Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet during the Prime Day sale it has 32g, it is the one without the ads. And I have a 64g microSD card in it also. This was for use with Mixing Station Pro (MSP).  I have been infrequently using MSP for a few years. So I am not a novice but not an expert on it. I have it on my current phone Samsung G8, it is a little small to mix on, but the screen (on the G8) is fantastic looking, it even works in sunlight.

Since the Fire was on sale I decided to pick one up for the occasional time it would work for my style of mixing. Also the company I do most of my freelance work for lately also has a Macie DL1608 and Mackie is supposed to be coming out with an android version of the tablet software sometime this year. So I am hoping it will come in handy for that also. I had some issues but I overcame that.

The first time I tried to use the Fire Tablet we had a Big Band that we had worked with before and the weather was very uncertain. So since the band is relatively easy to mix I decided to setup the mixer (Midas M32) by the side of the stage. But I didn’t have access to the mixer or the WAP (Wireless Access Point) before the show. How hard could it be to get it to work? Well Too hard. I got the Mac address entered in the WAP as one of the authorized users. My phone was working fine running Mixing Station Pro but it seems like the Fire tablet was trying to see the internet on the WAP. And since there wasn’t an internet connection it kept failing. And then MSP wouldn’t connect. Then the next week I tried it again and before the Fire Tablet could reject the network connection since it wouldn’t find the internet I tried to connect MSP to the mixer and it worked. 

The purpose of using the Mac Address in the WAP is a security procedure. Only devices whose Mac Address are in the WAP are able to connect to it. My phones Mac address and the Fire Tablet are in the approved Mac list in this WAP and my phone worked just fine and has always in the past. It is just that for some reason that the Fire seems to think it needs to see the internet to have a valid network connection. But now I know the workaround for that.

My experience with the Yamaha DXR15 was with a tribute band (I'll take 'Hair Bands of the 80s for $2000, Alex!) that used them for wedge monitors for the bass player and 1 of the guitarists (both sang harmonies as well).  The bass player pretty much matched his SVT rig level in his wedge and stood in the power alley he created unless he was singing.  It became the stage sound I had to mix the show to...  The guitarist didn't use nearly as much of his GTR in his mix but his vocal level was LOUD.  The DXRs stood up to the 2 hour show without overheating or shutting down, not sure if they were into limit (wouldn't surprise me) but damn, they had output.

Color me impressed.
