It occurs to me I could use the headset connection from a com beltpack, through transformers (for iso) and a couple of pots (for level control) to a cable terminated in RJ9.
Plug that into any phone available.

The DSR will play louder but doesn't really have much bass.  Not a good choice for between 80-200.  The DSR's strong point is the CD/horn that doesn't give out like the QSCs and others.  The DXR actually has more bottom and is a better stand alone (no subs) box.  If you had to run a bass though one, or use it as a drum monitor will lots of the bass guitar in it, the DXR would be the better choice.  For front line monitors where clarity of vocals and SPL are paramount, the DSR would win.
I agree .... if he is not using a sub.

When used over subs, I find that the DSR112 woofer is actually more potent than the DXR woofer between 80-200 Hz. 

As you point out, the DSR112 has nothing really below 80Hz where the DXR does.  It doesn't make a good stand alone DJ box at all IMO.  It works really well stand alone for acoustic gigs though.

Where it comes in handy is if you're using an X32 rack.  It's got 16 mic level inputs, but you can re-map 6 of the line level inputs to channels and end up with a 22 channel mixer.  I've done that myself, and it works great.
It also comes in handy if you're using an S32 or 2x16, to help get around the limitation of having to patch inputs in banks of 8.  If you wanted just one or two local mic inputs on the X32, you'd have had to assign a bank of 8 local inputs, leaving only 24 inputs from the stage end.

If you assign the local 1-2, 1-4, or 1-6 to the aux inputs, and the remote stageboxes to 1-32, you then have 38 mic channels available.  Only 32 of them will be fully functional (dynamics etc), but some remapping of inputs can easily give you what you need.

, but it sounds to me like Nathan is bothered that someone is going to be crushed by a speaker. Not that he'll be responsible, but that someone may die because of this client's ignorance.

Many bad things happen because of ignorance but you can't be responsible.
Walk away.

Thanks for the heads up. So is the FCC verbiage below no longer applicable?

"...and unlicensed wireless microphones may operate on a portion of the 600 MHz guard band (614-616 MHz) or a portion of the 600 MHz duplex gap (657-663 MHz)."

Just to state the obvious, the frequencies you asked about are not in that range.

This is all fine from the perspective of covering oneself, but it sounds to me like Nathan is bothered that someone is going to be crushed by a speaker. Not that he'll be responsible, but that someone may die because of this client's ignorance.

I haven't been in that situation myself, but my approach would be to point out that the lower-cost installation won't be up to standard, and here's a list of probable outcomes, including jail time, very large fines, closing of venue etc etc etc. Make it very obvious that if something happens, lives will be ruined, and not just the poor person that happened to have a speaker hit them.
If they want to proceed after that, I'd watch from a safe distance and then make an anonymous call to whoever checks these things out. With a bit of luck, they'll be slapped with a smaller fine and closed until the rigging is up to standard. You might even get the job of fixing it.

Sometimes a good hard reality check is enough to set people straight.

Okay, so let me get this right.

You've got a 18" subwoofer under a stage, and you're feeding it a signal filtered at 80Hz and 200Hz, and you're wondering why it sounds rubbish and what could replace it. My instinct tells me it's because you're using a 18" sub entirely outside of its operating band.

More information about the rest of the system would be useful methinks. I can see why it's sounding bad at the moment. Filtering bass guitar, E-drums or anything else at 80Hz-200Hz would sound very bad indeed.

So yes, what's the rest of the system?
How have you got it all set up?
What's the desired outcome?

We can all name cabinets that'll do lots of fun things from 80Hz-200Hz, but I really doubt if that's the solution here.

I need a mixer, pref. 1U in size. I presume this is going to be equipment that is at least 10-20 years old given that anything with PC controls now uses USB. But unless I can control it using my own software without writing my own USB controller, I prefer the old way using Rs232. I got a dedicated computer controlling my video switches already, they all control using RS232.
(Sorry, the other post was without a proper real name for user name)

I need to control it from the PC (using software I develop myself)

I need to be able to adjust the stereo separation / stereo panning since the sources has the stereo image completely separated and I like to adjust the mixing in those cases that is needed.. I'd prefer to do this through the rs232 (pc) controls but if manual way is the only way I'll live with that.

I need at least 4 stereo inputs and 1 stereo output, more is always better as long as it is within 1U. Of course, if there is a 2U model that does this I'll live with having to rearrange my setup.
I'd like if the inputs were (balanced) terminal block / phoneix connectors, but I'd live with other ways. I do only need line level, but if it supports mics that's neat.

The output will be to an unbalanced amplifier.

I've found units that has balance controls but no rs232 control, and units with rs232 but no balance controls. So I'm trying in a related forum to see if anyone have experience with it?

CYA. I would write a letter to the soon-to-be former client and say:

I recommended you do X, Y, and Z.
I advised you against doing A, B, and C.
I told you that by doing A, B, and C that you run a significant and substantial risk of personal injury, death, and/or property damage.
I am not willing to do A, B, and C for you because of the risk associated with doing so.
Thank you for considering me as a vendor on this project.

And be darn sure to keep a copy for your records!  Your insuance agent and lawyer will thank you.
