I am very keen to hear how the new RCF NX45a will compare to the Yamaha DXR15's. I am also very interested to know how the NX32a will compare to the Yamaha DSR112 and FBT Ventis 112a and FBT Mitus 112a!
Is there a rough date when the new RCF NX45a and NX32a will be shipping?

     Building a home brew sub starts with proven designs,
quality materials
and construction.
   Any  movement in the box is wasting output energy.
  brace,brace, brace.

Amen to all points. 

I just built some home brew single 18"s, designed using the great software floating around.
4 corner ports, well braced, and still vibrates like no tomorrow. 
Told my girlfriend to have a seat on one when I cranked up Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling.  She blushed deeply.... ;D

I don't know how much bracing it would take to completely tame today's drivers...other than I would want Tim's forklift handles...!

I've also seen Epi Riviera 12s and Gibson 335 12s which are interesting in that they are less bright and not as jangly. 

Usually I think of McGuinn's Rick with the Byrds when I think of 12 strings although George did some signature parts as well.  Any Time At All pops into my head.

Agreed that I also think of them as the bottom four strings.  Which is one of the problems trying to emulate one with effects.  You can use an octave pitch shifter to get the lower sound, or a chorus to get the upper sound (Metheny was trying to emulate a 12 string with his unique stereo delay thing) but you can't get both unless you're running some kind of synth thing.

  I thought the Brits built some of the higher end equipment but now i know.  the original Bozak i have was recapped also and sounds amazing thats why i looked at the new Bozak what a mistake that was and the only reason being Rane discontinued the mp2016 and that is my standard rack mount install mixer that sounds awesome 
   i am now looking at a Japanese option and a Aussie option that are supposed real high end not masquerading with a known name having expected quality
btw the Brits are really brash in their attitudes is this left over from the Declaration of Independence?

Lol Alec, thanks for the trouble shooting "nudge" (and you are correct in doing so! )
My next goal is to try to find a powered wedge monitor to move away from the in ear if possible. I use the in ear in one ear only, to hear my amp in the other ear, and it's bad news as far as  hearing loss. Our harmonies are a big factor in our band, and the sense of isolation gets in my way -- but, I'm a female with some nodes on my vocal cords as is, and I haven't been able to hear adequately with a wedge monitor, makes me over sing and then I'm in vocal trouble. I've looked through some good threads here and I probably need to get a pro level powered monitor, but that's a whole other deal.
When I had Sensaphonics make my IEMs I also had some ER plugs made.  So for awhile I used to have an IEM in one ear and a plug in the other.  That let me keep the IEM level reasonable.  As said, one open ear is a recipe for hearing damage.

For hearing pitch on background harmonies I like the Hot Spot personal monitors.  Towards the end of that band's lifetime I would bring one and hang the belt pack on the handle and plug it in.  It didn't appreciably add to the stage level but I would laugh when the frontline singers would pull their ears out and come stand by me.   ;D  A couple of them hated the things.  We had our own stereo monitor board which was managed by the keyboard player.  Who was also a Grammy nominated R&B producer and knows a bit about mixing.  But it was a constant struggle for the singers and myself on guitar to deal with the things.  Only the bass player (who lived in his own frequency space), the drummer (who sat above a very loud instrument that came over his in ear mix), and the keyboard player (who was used to living in cans) could deal with the in-ears.  Which is why I believe that musicians who've been playing for awhile in small spaces shouldn't mess with IEMs without a dedicated monitor engineer who's paying attention.  In several varsity situations, the main person has their own monitor engineer who's dedicated to tweaking what they hear and making their lives easier.  There are small situations where they work.  Guitarists with modelers or highly processed sounds, the all direct-no amps on stage bit, youngsters or studio rats who spend more time playing in cans than live on stage with other musicians.

the 12 gives a kind of jangly sound. the 4 top additional strings are tuned an octave higher. George Harrison played a 12 string on many Beatles songs. Lots of songs with a 12 string. Ricky Reynolds of Black Oak Arkansas played 12 string rhythm in the 70's for BOA. Its a different sound from a 6 string.

I have been playing guitar for 40 years and have never heard anyone refer to the E, A, D and G strings as the top 4 strings. Is that common?  MAybe I'm the oddball.

To me they're the bottom or lower strings.  Of course I have almost always been the only guitar player in the bands I have been in. None of the other muscians ever played six string. Neither did the drummer (rimshot)

I love playing twelve stringed acoustics, never played an electric one. I am imagine being a Strat it's easy to play.

Or you could take a chunk of 4x4 and cut a block with a 45 on one side. I made a bunch of these years ago and use them for chocking duties among other things. Much cheaper this way.

Hard to beat the price on these:   http://www.harborfreight.com/solid-rubber-wheel-chock-96479.html

You ever mention:

-polarity
-phase
-point source
-short line array
-multiple wide trap boxes per side
-quad box
-employment practices

You can kiss your thread goodbye. We fight to the death here.
.... or Danley? ;)

Sorry, Ivan!

I had a wedding once where the band was packed in pretty tight. Really small room. Only enough for band at one end, me in the corner behind the drummer and the rest of the room, dance floor.

Well, got this low frequency feedback going and it turned out to be the floor tom interacting with the bass. A notch fixed it.
