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

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 $600.

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

- $600 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...

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

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

EV ZXA1
$500, 46lbs, (-10)44hz-118hz

iNSPIRE iP12B
$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)

DXS12
$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?

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.

Follow the advice given so far.

If there is still a problem check the headphones the drummer is using, the units should be putting out plenty of volume. If he does not already he should have either IEM's or some cans which isolate, in nothing more than for the sake of his hearing.

----

Always make sure you have plenty of gain when working with P16's I often have channels gained a little higher console side than I would otherwise as it gives the IEM's good solid signal.

With the P16 the most common problems I see are that:
1. Improper gain staging (one or more volume's all the way down)
2. Invertible someone has panned the entire master mix?! (Why!)
3. The limiter is pumping hard (remember that for the limiter being off, or down, is the opposite of all the other knobs on the p16)

Also, I frequently encounter church musicians who do not own IEMs. Which usually means they cannot hear themselves well as normal earbuds often have no fidelity, cannot handle the signal without clipping, or have a phone mic which lends to the cord not connecting correctly. If this a problem you face check out these inexpensive IEMs with these tips. These sound tremendously good for the price and anyone should be able to afford them, and perhaps you can get your church to buy a few pairs of house one's (we usually keep a pair or two with an organizer/divider box which has tips, this way the IEMs can be shared but individuals still have their own tips).

If you don't already, I would recommend that you know the P16 in and out. Know how to fix each problem (linked channels, gain etc) and figure out what people need for a mix, so you can help those less experienced individuals (for example a bassist probably needs drums and the WL, and not too much more else while a vocalist might just need the WL and other vocalist and minimal drums or bass).

Before the musicians arrive I always try to make sure all the units have the appropriate settings, and sometimes I make a mix for someone, sometimes with an unprofessional musician who has no desire to learn it easier for me to take 30 seconds on the front end.

A few minutes into practice, after things are working in your world and your gains are set and everything is sounding fairly cohesive go check that everyone has a good IEM mix. I usually walk the stage and tap my ear and questioningly give a thumbs up (they can give a nod or shake their head in reply, this does not interrupt practice). If something needs work I will wait until their next break to see what needs help, usually, it is on their end.

If you have musicians or singers who do not understand how to take to use the units do a quick 2 minute training sometimes saying "these are the first problems I find, if something doesn't sound right let me know and I will help you dial it in, let me know now don't wait for the whole service :-)" Overtime the continued education seems to be working, and some of the musicians are actually helping troubleshoot the other ones. :-)

---

Also, how are your p16's routed? Especially for drums post-EQ and compression makes a huge difference in the ears. I run most other channels post also. However, this also means that you cannot do any insane chopping on the EQ, although I can usually get by with reasonably moderate stuff when the house needs it. Ideally, you should be getting good tone and signal from their end, and you should not need to fix it, but at least with one of the churches I work with that is simply not usually the case...

It's arrived, and "jumping in" isn't happening.
I've got it playing music, and all the controls etc work just fine.

The problem is that there's gonna be a pretty serious learning curve. Transitioning well between two tracks is entirely luck at this point.

Practice, practice, practice...

Forgot about those. I sure love carrying two 29lb mains that handle things perfectly

I fit my whole open mic rig on a Rock-n-Roller cart, including 2 iQ8, an iQ15b, a bass amp, a guitar amp, mixer, mic stands...

It's amazing what these little speakers can do.

Setting up a matrix out for your DVD recorder would be best. Then you would have control of the level sent to the recorder without changing your LCR levels.

You can send me your scene and I can set it up for you. My e-mail is my first name dot my last name @ gmail dot com.

Wow!
Lol...
It was all awesome, but for me, Charlie with the megaphone during the "Grand Finale" put it over the top!
Very well done.

Quoting Robert Lofgren from another site:

The p16m has three level controls.

1) Channel level
2) Main level
3) Master level

Make sure that they all are set high enough.

Also, make sure that the limiter isn't engaging and clamping the level...

Let it be said once again that the ubiquity of the X32/M32 series is *such* an asset, not least with the number of 3rd party tools/apps - expecially Mixing Station, which is so customisable, it can be laid out pretty much any way you like - just perfect!

+1

Mixing Station is incredibly flexible, and the author is available to help solve problems. It's the best $5 you can spend.

But the "gain adjustment" you're showing is just the MixRack's preamp, correct?
Do you know whether if you connect a ULXD via Dante can you adjust the actual receiver output level like you can on the Yamaha?

You are correct, the picture I have shown is the Mic-pre gain not the receiver's gain but you can also adjust the receiver's gain from the desk (from memory you just tap the RF info tab to access it) . The display on the receiver also changes accordingly.  The picture was a QLXD which does not use Dante. I assume if you have a Dante card fitted to the dLive you can do the same thing using Dante on the ULXD.
