Okay, so I'm reporting back on the single DXR10 with the RCF 702 subwoofer. I hosted an open mic last night and used this set-up along with a Zedi10 (which should've been a Zedi10fx - ordered the wrong one).

The Yamaha DXR10 kicks ass!! The sound was crystal clear and one was enough to fill the entire bar. I played my electric guitar through it and I am extremely happy with the sound. Acoustic was also played through it as well as vocals, banjo, fiddle and bass foot pedal. They all sounded great and I received many compliments on the sound.

I'm also impressed with the RCF 702 subwoofer. For it's size and weight I really don't think you can beat this for a 12" sub. It does a great job at filling out the sound and you can feel the bass when turned up past noon. I tried out the Bose F1 subwoofer at Guitar Center, which has pretty much the same specs, and I can say the Bose F1 is louder and you can really feel it in your chest but it does have two 10" drivers as the RCF has one 12" driver.

For my purposes, the RCF 702 is perfect. If my main gig was being a DJ that played a lot of bass heavy music I think I'd go for the Bose F1. I would be curious how it stacks up to the RCF 705 AS II sub. If you're a solo act or small band who's playing bars and small clubs, the RCF 702 is a great sub. This just fits in my dinky civic, so anything larger would be a hassle. If you're playing large clubs or outside gigs or are a large band I might go for a 15" sub.

The website worx; ph#s don't. Got some units to maybe have repaired🤔

TDM was originally based in Oregon and then sold to a company in California maybe 16 or so years ago. I think they (the buyer) were a sound production company at some level and never really got up to full production on the TDM product line, the days of analog crossovers were starting to fade at that time.

At this time I think the website is still being kept up just as point of product reference with manuals and schematics available for download.

What crossovers do you have and what issues are you having with them.

I make no judgment about your particular situation, however there is a point where after a certain amount of bad publicity, the onus shifts to the customer/victim.

The legality issues of home-made/non-listed-shop-made distros as well as the business practices of ampshop.com have been discussed thoroughly enough and often enough on PSW that by now regular posters should know better.

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice...can't get fooled again.

I am in the "cant get fooled again" column. There will be no second chance for Amp Shop with me. As far as "user built" distros, I am a degreed Electrical Engineer and I know power, but I still won't do it. I have Motion Labs getting me a quote together now.

I think "deserved what happened to them" is a pretty ridiculous statement and victim blaming.

Shoddy QC.  Not every fault on every component but all needed to be checked after we found the initial issues.

Our first order was fine but subsequent orders were met with diminishing quality, delayed deliveries, etc until we went with another vendor, "Fightingtheforcesofdarkness.com"

As for building... buying an Ampshop or DimmerRack distro means no UL sticker on the assembly so DIY is a matter of metal work and conformity to Code and best practices.  We've built a few in our shop and decided the potential liability wasn't worth the money saved.
As of NEC 2017, homebrew/non-listed shop work doesn't meet code even if it otherwise meets code.

You might get away with it for a while, but that risk coupled with the other risks of whether you'll even get the distro you paid for from said "craftsman" and the risk of whether it will even work or be wired correctly seems to be a false economy.

It's only toxic if you eat it.  It's not absorbed though the skin and it takes 800 something degrees to vaporize such that it could be inhaled.  If you get it into your system it's an embryotoxin and affects brain development.  Just ask some Romans.  ;)

But, out of an abundance of caution...


Wait, so you're not supposed to eat it?

Now that the Y series came into the picture. pair of Y10p/Ysubs/D20 would be about 25K, thats 10K more than the similar LAcoustics point source set up. How would you justify the big gap in price? Do they sound that much better or this is depends on the market and cross rentals, etc?

Well budget wasn’t mentioned and I think you could get into the y series for a bit less than you mentioned above, for example going with B6 subs.  My personal choice is d&b over l’acoustic generally, but others will have other choices.  KV2 offer some excellent systems the ex12’s which are great for the money. 

I think with the continued recommendations for the fulcrums I would try and get a listen to them.

All the above depends a lot on what you need the system for, whether you are planning to rent to customers that are specifying riders, size of events vs spl required, I feel these are only questions you can answer for yourself.

No disrespect, but there is something odd about your friend's story about a university paying $8000 up front for a distro. I was involved in college/university academia for over 35 years and responsible for placing hundreds of purchase orders. To get someone to sign off for payment in advance of receiving the merchandise is nearly impossible. If someone at the university did that, they deserve what happened.

Jim is the guy who wanted payment up front and I vouched for him. This was the Wesleyan University in indiana. I think "deserved what happened to them" is a pretty ridiculous statement and victim blaming. They asked me where to get a distro like the one I had, and I told them who and where I got it from.

Can you get outlets that accept 10ga wire?

(Asks the guy on the other side of the planet)

If yes, why not use them?  If no... what does that tell you?

Eddie Limon at Above the Crowd is currently selling off a dozen lightly used 8006's

http://atcprod.com

Get the 9006 if you buy new and can afford them.

Get the 8006 if you can't, or if you get a great deal on demo/second hand.
