If I were you, I'd be looking at the RCF NXL-24a. You'll end up with a really fantastic rig. For a few bucks less you can get into the RCF NX-32 or NX-45, which is a wood box version of the ART boxes with big drivers.

RCF customer service and support has been great for me. They turn gear around in under a week and have been impressively responsive.



currently have 2 jbl prx815w tops over 4 rcf 8003 mk2 subs, and it was quite the system

how ever a tweeter has blown and i need replacments quick, cant wait for warranty repair.

my first choice would be jbl srx15p but these are not available.

what is ready to collect at shop:

yamaha dsr 115 136db 1400w £900
ART 745-A MK4  133db 1300w £1100 (guy in shop swears this is the best option)
QSC equivalent

as these will always run in high pass the descision is not so easily made, it is the specs on the compression drivers that has got me thinking. rcf is 1.4" with a 4" voice coil vs the yamaha 2" voice coil 1" throat.

on the bear face of the figures and description i just do not understand which would be the best choice.

the music is strictly house music, ive got the bass sorted and just need ear shattering highs that i can dial back to suit and leave some headroom.

buying in next couple of days, desperate for help

ps, should i insist on the srx15p no matter what?!

hi folks,

Let me be clear, There was absolutley nothing wrong with the yamaha clarity, i listened to this first and it was fine.

when i say the yamaha had clarity issues..... this became apparent up against the rcf, and the yamaha was dropped from the test firly quickly as it appeared it was in the wrong race altogether as the price would suggest  perhaps.

so again, yes the yamaha is a good loud clear speaker, but not as good as the rcf in any department.

yes im a dj, how dissapointing haha, but i am also a small sound and light company of around 5 years. I started out with budget gear and gradually progressed up to what you see now.

I dont pretend to be an expert but i do know what im listening to and what sounds good or not when house music is being belted through a system.

the choice was extremely tuff, as i said i also like asthetics  in my rigs, when i put them up i like the customer to like what he sees before i even turn it on.

so the choice was even tuffer, the qsc was hitting hard at max volume and i knew it would look best ontop of my subs, but in the end i went for the much lighter (clever carry handles) slightly cheaper but oh so ugly RCF.

Now there home i am learning to love my new babys with the face only a mother could love, all things said i have made the right choice for me.

if i come back at the end of august (2 gigs later) with 2 blown rcf tweeters then i willl fall on my "DJ" sword and own up!
Hey Andy,

If you are doing DJ work, then I suspect that the RCF's with the much much better bottom end will serve your needs better (not to mention how silly light they are).  RCF has long been known for their smooth top end as well..... QSC K/KW ..... not so much.

I envy your rig.  Very nice indeed.

Seriously, none of you guys have ever worked in a rental situation with real-life Windows or Mac computers?  Hardware is *way* easier to clean off after a rental and then prep to go back out.  Not to mention occasions when the computer is used to browse porn between shows and ends up with all sorts of nasty malware as a result.

Rental use wasn't mentioned, but Kiosk mode would prevent that. Disabling wireless in the OS helps as well.

My presumption was use by the unit owner.

Yes.
It works perfectly.
I use it for remote speakers all the time.

Canare L-2T5 is a miniature mic cable (4.6mm diameter) I would use around drum kits if I was concerned about it being inconspicuous.  Long lengths that are likely to get yanked on, or jammed under chair legs, I would be concerned about, but if it's reasonably looked after it should be fine.

Redco has it for less than $0.50/ft., and they seem happy to sell it in less than 100m spools too.

99% of the time I'll be the one handling this cable so I know it will be in good hands and well taken care of. :)
Thanks for the info , I'll look that up and order some of that as well.

Thank you!

So Iím still looking into this. The JBL replacement drivers are pretty expensive. I am basically looking at about 450 bucks including tax and shipping. For the same price I can get a pair of eminence Kilomax pro 18a drivers and make them both match. 

Would that be a suitable replacement to the original 2044? 
Dave,
The Kilomax pro 18a has a Vas slightly less than the JBL 2044, and similar Fs, other T.S. parameters also similar, so should work OK in the JBL cabinet. As it handles more power, less likely to burn out, and recones with original parts are less expensive.

Perhaps this is known by most of you already, but the "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin has passed.

A once-in-a-lifetime vocalist.  Glad I was around to witness her talent. RIP.

Yamaha rep stopped by yesterday...said they are now shipping limited quantities of DZR..no Dante option yet.
I was surprised at the 'reasonable' up charge for Dante.
If any of y'all get a DZR to audition & compare...plz let us know your thoughts
