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.

Up until the point of him ripping off the university, he always delivered the product. Some just took longer than others with a BS story to go with it. Can't say fooled me once applies here. I had no reason to believe he wouldn't deliver. like I said...I had been buying distros and racs pacs from him for years. obviously I will never deal with him again. using Linkusa-inc.com for my distro needs now.

The seminars got combined into one: "enhance worship with lighting." So we'll see where I take it haha. I do plan on recording mine somehow just for my own benefit and maybe to put on YouTube.

I definitely plan on bringing some of my lights and incorporating them into my session! I think I'll have access to an older fresnel and then I have S4 parnels & leko's. (In addition to moving lights: LED zoom wash RGBAW+UV & Beam/Spot/Wash hybrids)

I'm imagining a dark (controlled lighting) good sized room with high dark ceilings. A bit of haze. A projector to show what I'm doing on the lighting board (Jands Vista). TV's for the actual presentation. Have an outline for people to follow along with, and have some statements/questions with one word answers so they can be actively engaged. Then call on people to answer questions throughout.

Intro:
I'll start with an intro about myself, say I'm nervous about things. Been awhile since I've "publicly spoken," but my mom forced me to take 4H presentation classes, so I'm not quite a fish out of water ;) Give some background on my experience and how I got started.

Body 1:
Then move on into the core mission of a church with tech & lights. Establishing a line of communication between pastor, worship leader, LD to execute the church's vision.

Body 2:
Then move to technical. Talk about fixture types, lamp types, specific automated fixtures. Talk about beam/field angle. Talk about color theory.

Body 3:
Talk about music, tempo, timber, mood, etc. How lyrics affect colors. How instrumentation & speed affect the effects/speed of lights.

Demo:
Move on to actual demo time. Play a song, get some colors & tempo callouts from the crowd.

Conclusion:
Demo some colors I like, some effects I like, etc.

Questions:

---

Might be a bit of a squeeze for 1.25hrs, but If I write it out and practice it a lot I think I can do it.

Almost all good US dual receptacles are rates for 10AWG wire. But that's probably for in-wall solid or course strand wire, not flexible cord fine strand wire.

Note that contrary to what some manufactures label their products, you plug into a receptacle and mount that receptacle in an outlet box.

Just ordered one. Hoping to use it in a 100% wet setup to send FOH a stereo drum FX return that can be changed per song and blended with normally miced drums.

I think you'll be surprised how good some of the trigger sounds are and the quality of the mics also.
We played with ours again on wednesday and spent some time setting up user scenes by going through the master setlist. I recorded each scene and played back just so that we could only hear what came through the mics and the trigger. It is tough NOT to hear acoustic drums even with in ears so recording the sounds worked for us.
Looking forward to tomorrow to try the new scenes out.

BTW.... the drummer now wants to buy the snare trigger - slippery slope....

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 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?
