^^^ This.

Quad boxes are your friend.  A box behind each stack, preferably on it's own AC circuit, is kind of the gold standard for small system work.  You may have to settle for silver or bronze in some venues.  :(

Also friends are "stringers" for downstage power for pedal boards, powered wedges, etc and upstage for guitar & bass amps, keyboard rigs, etc.  A stringer is a type of AC cord that has outlets spaced at intervals like 6 - 8 feet (more or less) and you just 'string' it across the up/down stage and plug it in (probably to a quad box that is powered from a wall outlet).

This^^^^^.. I do stringers as well..
I do try to find two circuits. One stack and front stringer on one. Backline and other stack on the 2nd

Many of us "lounge level" folks have tried endless permutations of preconfigured stringers and always came up empty.  Drop a quad box behind each stack and be done with it.

From his post:

Please also note that I am extolling the virtues of the 828SP's internal processing with V5 tunings and FIR filters.  it gets the job done.  Just using the PA2 as a simple crossover as Tim suggested still places the PA2's very mediocre, easily overdriven and generally crappy sounding A/D converter right smack in the signal chain.

You have an excellent mixer, subs and tops.  I would rather see a good analog crossover, available for pennies in today's market, than the PA2.

Again, Jonathan doesn't mention the PA2.  Find it for me, please.

Rob does not lose the V5 presets in the SRX828sp no matter what.  Rob does not lose the inter-driver alignments, EQ or limiting in the PRX; processing that appears to be V4 dbx-based.  He already owns the PA2.  Let him use it as a learning tool and he can decide if he wants to put a 20 year old Ashly analog xover (a solid, basic choice) in the rig later.

HDL50 pricing on the web?? interesting...the price sheet states that theHDL50 system pricing is "not authorized for internet sales" orsomething to that effect...I am on the wrong computer now, dont have my price sheets in front of me.

Amazon is shown as the seller.  The advertised price is $7,649 with 4-5 day Prime shipping (once available).

It is as easy as sending an email to my distributor to get pricing, as simple as that. But as the HDL-20A & HDL-50A pricing is found everywhere on the web (even on the amazon website) , I was looking to see if pricing for this new product was also available. I wanted to check the pricing just for positioning the product ( price wise) against other brands offerings.  Maybe RCF has a hit like the Yamaha DSR-112 (price/quality/performance)

+1 for the Point Source Audio CO-8WD.  We just bought eight of them.  The positioning options are great.  You can even flip the two earclips in either direction so the boom can be on the left or on the right.  Very ingenious.

They also have a disconnectable pigtail for the connector so you can switch out to various WL connectors if you have more than one brand in your inventory.

Sound quality is great.  We switched over from Microphone Madness earsets and the PSA headsets sound much better (although not a fair comparison as they are also more expensive - I just state that as a point of reference for those familiar with MM product, which is definitely not bad).

So far we've been very happy.

+1 for DPA.
d:fine 4066 is great if the user wish to put them on by themself.
Dual ear d:fine slim is really nice & comfy to wear, but you usually need someone to put the mic on the end user so the placement is spot on.

+2 for the DPA d:fine we got ours from Mike Pyle, keep 2 in inventory.  Amazing for corporate "Ted" type talks.  A really easy upsell. 

I have found a bit of nurses tape to keep them in ideal placement is best.

1)How do the compare to most other commonly use subs in the industry ?
2)Are there alot of riders calling for them in the EDM world ?
3)Most of the EDM show systems I have seen use a ton of dual 18 boxes (matching the tops Brand Name )  in cardiod configuration.
Mike,

1) The M-Force driver is so radically different than any moving coil driver it has been hard to really compare, as it has a moving magnet and built-in amplification. The fact that Dave Rat decided to use them is a good indicator that they are a step above the best moving coil drivers in terms of output to space.
The PK design integrating the center grill as the motor heat sink would be a big advantage in the EDM world, where LF dynamic range is often no more than that of a sine wave, 3dB crest factor. PK had also been using some of the best pro 18" drivers, so they also seem to think the expense is warranted in terms of output to truck space.
2) No idea if the "newish" tech has gained much traction, riders typically request "X amount of 2x18" rather than output levels, though there can be as much as 15 dB level difference between 18" output..
3) Tried and true, but for big budgets the M-Force will probably start gaining traction, but just like with tapped horns, it is hard to convince anyone that one cabinet can do what 2 or 3 can until they hear it.

And the reverse polarity receptacle?

Stephen, are you asking if it was fixed.  Yes, the day after it happened.  I also noted the UPS connection is a BX home run to the load center.  It is downstream of the transfer switch.

Duly noted, and I appreciate the guidance.
