I have a clean used Alto Maxidrive3.4PC processor you could use to process it...

...if you happen to have a win2k PC to run the software. :)

Engaging the mic setting increases the gain, just not very much.

What did EV do with their MTL-4 design to address this?

I ended up storing them on their backs.

When I discovered the issue it hadn't progressed too far so I simply rotated the drivers and let gravity correct the issue for a bit before swapping them to the side drivers.
We handled them with forklifts so it didn't matter which way they were setting on a pallet.  They were essentially a cube so it didn't affect truck-pack or warehouse racking. 

The mid-high box  was the main reason for the forklift (anyone who has used those can understand why) and luckily the 10's in those were all mounted vertical.  any cone sag at all in those would be noticeable quickly due to the phase plug -which I doubt that there would be any in such a small driver that still used the same spider as it's larger 18" sibling. 
I actually had bigger issues with recone-errors in those where a slightly off-center dustcap could reduce excursion significantly due to collision with the phase plug.  (You wouldn't believe how many reconers I've encountered that just eye-balled the placement of those!)

Back on-topic, I also found humidity has quite a bit to do with cone sag too. 

Storage doesn't seem to affect sag as much as heavy use.  With the low-Xmax drivers in the EV subs you always found Xlim quickly then backed-off to just a bit before it and held it there all night :) 
I think the constant straining of the driver's suspension really aggravated the sag issue.  Lightly used installed versions didn't seem to have as bad a problem.

Nightclubs with fog machines are another situation.  I have one client with manifold type boxes mounted sideways where the driver's spiders are saturated in condensed fog fluid -probably due to the constant drawing of air through them while the driver is pumping.  Just awful sag issues -to the point where the coils are almost resting on the back-plate.  Many times the glue holding them to the basket lets-go  I have to change them out often and this is with modern very well built heavy-duty B&C, Radian and RCF drivers. 
The DJ's pound on the system, it's in a humid area (an ocean shoreline) and the excessive fog use just make it a woofer torture chamber.

Do you have the Rio boxes set to "Refresh" mode?  For a setup like that "Resume" would be more appropriate.

Before you send them back, Debbie, let me know.  My pair just arrived (albeit with shipping damage - to the carton only - whew!) and I'm experiencing a different kind of buyer's remorse; I should have bought another pair!

High Passing them around 80Hz cleans up some woofiness and the Contour setting pulls out some of the frequencies I'd attenuate anyway.  With a subwoofer, I think they'll work fine for smaller venues and would certainly serve well as spare monitors.

The lack of Bluetooth DSP access isn't a deal breaker for me.  It would be nice to be able to lock off the controls on the back, but I'll live.  One minor design "flaw" I see is the Mic/Line switch being in nearly the same place one might expect the XLR release latch to be.  Old habits...

As to their weight, yeah, it's a bit of a lift onto the ol' tripod, but they're half the weight of the top boxes I'm used to slinging around.

Anyway, I'm serious about taking them off your hands if you aren't thrilled with your purchase.

your "neighbor" over in High Point,
Hey Dave - I would MUCH rather see a fellow labster benefit from this deal than send them back. Not sure what I am doing yet but you are first in line if I bail.....

To admit that we are powerless over the spec sheet, and that our storage space has become unmanageable.

Isn't that step 1 and 2?  :D

Hello folks, we have been using some four years CL5 with three RIOs, a DVS and some other Dante devices. All with latest firmware. We mostly jump between different Dante input patches, each show usually have a different one and naturally a set of scenes. Strangely the Dante input patch is not always recalled correctly. We then make he corrections, store and run the show. Next morning the patch might be ok or not. So far it has been only RIO boxes stealing the inputs patched for the DVS.

If you were to strip back some of that outer casing, I'd expect you'd see higher voltage ratings on the sleeve of the 12/3 component ("12G 3Cond. Shielded Jacketed Group" from the cross section in your link).  But please don't peel that back on my account.  Whether or not the AHJ sees it this way is really the only concern I'd have in your shoes.

I have a little over a foot total stripped back from the ends because fan-outs is how it's used, and there are no visible markings on the inner 12-3 jacket, which seems is maybe a thinner version of the vinyl jackets on lots of power cords (like an IEC cord). At least it visually conforms to the shape of the twisted 12-3 more than the IEC cords conform to the shape of 14-3, for example.

As to the original response of it being a typo, that really isn't consistent with the second response you received.  Hopefully the second one was the correct one.

Yes that they are not consistent, no to a hope the second one is correct. I prefer the mislabling explanation, which would be a lot easier to sort out, I think.

Have a look at Middle Atlantic too
All models are rack mountable and they do have some 1U ones
-and all have easily swappable batteries

I really like the Middle Atlantic stuff as well and they are what I spec in my designs. I have also seen quite a few in some touring racks that come through town. One weekend I got bored and wrote a little Lua script to pull the status into Q-Sys.  Just a note... the 1RU units are a simulated sine wave and not a pure sine wave.

Treating the ceiling is your best bet, as already mentioned carpet doesn't actually do much for most frequencies. One option is just covering the entire ceiling in fabric-wrapped acoustic panels, but your better bet is finding a local acoustic consultant who can do a quick RT60 test of the room, and recommend an exact sq. footage of treatment (most likely, their total fee will be less than what you'll save by just treating the entire ceiling).

Buying Owens Corning fiberglass panels and wrapping it yourself was mentioned, which is possible, however I've seen this attempted a few times and it rarely looks good. Buying pre-wrapped fabric panels from an acoustic company (e.g. Kinetics, Decoustics, MBI, Armstrong, etc.) is nearly always a better way to go so you get a decent looking end product.
