Ill report back 27 august when Ive had them out in the wild...

Thanks for reporting back, and yes please continue to do so. We don't hear from DJs all that often in this forum.

Didn't know QSCs would be included, but I'm not surprised that you detected harshness when they were pushed.

Very cool - I love the active design. Just curious, why would someone want these over the Orbit Shifters?

Hi everyone,
)
So I am not familiar with lighting as much as audio , so I am seeking a good suggestion for some Compact lights that I can put on top of my rcf nxl24 boxes to light up the stage area for the bands I work with.

The NXL24 boxes have a 1 3/8 inch pole cup recepticle on the top that I can rig something to mount on with an O clamp.

Needs to be fairly light, compact, but high output / coverage.

Thoughts ?

thanks in advance! :)

Thank God my wife is the best over/under person I have ever seen. Apparently that is how it's done in the medical field.  Of course neither one of us can still unroll an over/undered cable to save our lives without still some how getting a knot when it time to strike but that' s how we roll. ( pun intended)

I used to cringe every time a band member would decide to "help" but she has now gotten so fast that the cables are usually rolled up before the bands gear is even put away. I love my wife!

  The 1st set of prx went bang after a power issue At the venue; the second went at a gig through reasons unknown.

Today we set up the speakers to be tested; all ran in high pass over a RCF 8003mk2 sub.

1 x dsr112   £789
1x qsc 152   £1144
1x rcf 745a   £1047

The jbl prx815 was not tested due to time constraints

the Yamaha was immediately discarded as it was obvious to all in attendance it was out of its depth, it wasn’t as loud and had severe clarity issues compared with the other 2, perhaps this is reflected in the price?

The decision between the other 2 was extremely difficult; I would say the qsc got louder than the rcf a little but with certain harshness.

The qsc cabinet was more awkward to move and 10kg heavier but seemed more, it took me and the guy in the shop to comfortably put it on top of the pole although I rekon I could have done it but with a struggle.

The RCF art 745a mk4 had a smoother sound quality about it, I felt I could listen to it at loud volumes equal to the qsc but for a lot longer, it didn’t hurt my ears the way the qsc did. But I like the qsc hurt my ears, it was loud very loud and that was what I was looking, something loud that I could dial back.

I struggled with this dilemma for a little while, In the end I went for a better smoother sound quality of the rcf, it was also cheaper and I felt more comfortable moving it on my own due to the 10kg saving.

I ad every intention of coming home with a 12/15” Yamaha dsr as the price difference was minimal and the extra payment on top of the prx palatable.

This Quickly became a non starter and a further £700 was handed over for the part exchange on top of the prx.

Ill report back 27 august when Ive had them out in the wild, hopefully that 4” voice coil on the compression driver will see me through many more years of graft.

like i said, they happen to have the dsr112 on the shelf aswell so itll be a 4 way shoot out dsr112 dsr115 prx815w rcf 745a - lucky me!


Speaking as another DJ, my favorite tops for mixing at club levels have 1.4 exit compression drivers over 15s. I know that technically speaking 12s should sound better than 15s over subs, but at high SPLs they just don't when playing what I do most - contemporary hip-hop and reggaetion.


Vocal projection (and at more moderate levels than where we operate) are a plus for 12s and a high priority for most in this forum, but to me that's really n/a.


I've never had the pleasure of mixing on an RCF system, but I would expect the 745s to easily win your shoot-out if you get the opportunity to  really open them up in space. Looking forward to what you find out.

Sam; Research Belden 8451 which is only manufactured in two jacket colors, black and light grey.  Belden 9451


Thanks, I've seen the Belden 9451SB wire and it does have a shield and makes it easy for wire stripping as well. I'll try 100'ft of it and see if it will suffice for what I'm looking at doing.

Thank you all for your responses. It's much appreciated as always. :)

While I agree with all of the comments regarding the problem of blowing high frequencies drivers, and not worrying about what the stack looks like, I don't believe 15" two-way speakers are inferior in any way over the same branded 12" two-way. I believe it is a personal preference.

This is from my experience, doing a hundred shows a year on both types of cabinets. I have the PRX and SRX 15's, and have compared them many times against my DSR112's which I use for monitors. I always prefer the sound of the 15's, even when used with sub's, which is most of the time.

Having said that, the OP needs to determine why he's blowing up drivers.
Exactly. If the OP blew the PRX, he needs to go up a level from the alternatives he is shopping. None of the speakers mentioned are going to survive whatever blew the PRX.

Unfortunately, deliveries came and went today with no DZR's in sight. Guess they'll come Monday. Of course I'm out of town Monday.

Looking forward to buying everyone's used DSR's now that they are junk!
