I've been in the Shure one a couple times on tours. I actually would like to try playing an instrument in there, or even taking a nap. :)
I doubt you'd be able to get to sleep.
We are so used to a certain amount of ambient, that if it were gone you'd be quite uncomfortable.

Anyone got any first hand experience to share?
$1399 VS $900 box not a fair comparison IMO.

We always put it on the stand. The closer it is to the "more me" person, the "more me" she gets, which is very critical in these quiet gigs.

Scott, I will give that a try. I am want to keep the faders form being a the low end. I think part of my problem may be our main amp is higher wattage than we need for a small sanctuary.
It's not about wattage, it's about gain structure.  On boards using the concept of dBFS - that is 0 is the loudest level and everything else is negative dB, you typically adjust your preamp on each input so that the input level (not the output meter on your mixer) is around -18dBFS.  If your board has analog-style metering with some amount of +dB available, normally you want your input gain such that each channel lands around 0dB on the input meter.

With this gain structure, you should have enough level to send to whatever you need to.  You may also find that this helps the fader position better reflect your desired mix balance.

You haven't given any information on your board model or speaker system.  If you have a single amp driving your main speakers, you should just be able to turn the amp gain controls down a bit.  If you have a larger system using multiple amps, this may not be the best course of action, but you can still compensate by lowering the level of your main output fader on the board.

RE your comment about your system needing a lot of help - if you post your location, there may be someone willing to stop over and spend a couple hours with you for a moderate fee.  This would likely be money well-spent.

+1 on these. I just used those exact speakers as mains and fills for a smallish church. Impressive output for their size and required very little EQ to sound nice. I remember thinking, "No way could these get loud enough... They're tiny." Everyone was surprised when we fired them up for the first time.
Those seem to have pretty decent specs but the conical coverage pattern seems less ideal than the EV or Renkus options. Would you agree with that thought?

I have been inside an anechoic chamber at Portsmouth University (UK).  After a few minutes, it gets quite unpleasant.  I wouldn't want to try to play a musical instrument in one.

I like, how about "Experienced production for your bespoke event" ???

That's better.

It's up to you, of course.

I will add that like in corporate and sports work, having some gray hair and being the calmest person in the room can be a big advantage.

Matthias, thanks for the detailed explanation. I will check on this and get back to youll.

Size, Quality (output), and Price.
Pick any two......

Yeah, I know I'm going to have to sacrifice something. I'd say price is my number 1 factor.

After doing a bunch of research of somewhat narrowed down some sub choices. Please let me know if I missed one. Price is #1 factor, so please don't suggest anything over $650.

Basically I'm looking for a single 12" sub to pair with a single DXR10. Here are my requirements:

- $650 or less
- 80lbs or less (ideally close to 50lbs)
- small enough to fit in my dinky civic sedan

Here's the subs I'm found that mostly fit those constraints...

RCF 702-AS
$650, 40lbs, (+/-3) 40hz-120hz

EV ELX200-12SP
$550, 42lbs, (-10)41hz-165hz

Alto TS212S
$400, 45lbs, (-10)42hz-100hz

$500, 46lbs, (-10)44hz-118hz

$500, 49lbs, (-10)38hz-200hz

Samson Auro D1200
$500, 53lbs (+/-3) 45hz-200hz

Alto TS215S
$500, 62 lbs (-10)35hz-95hz (I figured I'd throw a 15" in there)

$430, 72lbs, (-10)47hz-160hz

Are there any of these that I should not even consider?
Any that won't play nice with a DXR10?
Any one of these that standout?
