We have a number of Sennheiser EW500 G3 receivers i have just tried to connect to WSM. On three of the receivers, i have successfully changed the IP address, but on one, the IP remains fixed on 0.0.0.0. this one unit does have a different firmware (1.7.7 vs 1.7.0). has anyone else come across this issue, or has a resolution?
thanks

I'm not sure if this is part of the ongoing Sennheiser deals or just a coincidence, but the e965 seems to be going for $499 right now through most major dealers.  I'd love to get a pair at that price, but right now that $998 needs to stay in my dLive fund!

Sure, rush in and buy the eon's because they match your budget - I did exactly the same thing when I first got into owning a pa.

So next year when you want to "upgrade", budget that your almost new eon speakers are worth less than half what you'll pay this weekend so you'll be basically starting over.

PS : just buy one dxr15 and you'll be fine.
I've done many gigs using just a single speaker. It really does work great for small and/or narrow rooms.

The question is does he really want to "own" a PA. Personally, I would set the bar of need and quality before considering budget, such as you point out, that does not seem to the be the natural disposition of the OP. If he plans on growing the system and becoming more "professional", the intended direction of these forums, then by all means to settle would be a costly mistake. I think most of us here are well endeared to the mantra of "buy once cry once."

However, if is he is simply looking for essentially a large stereo system for a hangout space which will be used only for living room jams, I think there are many cheaper products which would adequately do the job, albeit with no standard of professionalism (I stress not with fidelity, clarity, or volume). At the end of the day, a name brand and inexpensive powered speaker will work in this role for years to come if used within its limits, and even such a cheap speaker would be far better than many practice room systems (at least the ones I ran into in my early formative years).

From my perspective, and perhaps I am wrong, the desires of the OP seem more akin to "lets amplify some vocals along with the guitar and drums" or "what would be ok for a DJ to use for a small living room concert/get together." I don't think the OP is asking for professional advice, and is perhaps on the wrong forum.

For better or worse he is enamored with the idea of PA speaker, maybe a cheap one would suit those needs fine, or maybe he will get the bug and it would be a complete waste of money. His inclination should reasonably define the approach.

Obviously good gain structure first, but I find Sending the direct out channels PRE EQ also helps quite a bit , especially for vocals , the signal source comes through full range like this obviously. If they want to sculpt the tone they have eq capability per channel on the p16 for that. I send stems and bus mixes post fader / post eq I find that works well also.

Hope that helps!
In 20+ years of sound reinforcement, I have never found any situation where no EQ for monitors - sending pre-EQ as you are describing - was better than sending the FOH EQ to monitors.  Vocal mics always need a high-pass filter at least, and usually another band or two.  Sending a flat-EQ version will have a bunch of mud to cloud the mix, and most acoustic guitars will need work around 1.7KHz. 

In a couple rare cases I have had talent requesting slightly different EQ in the wedge for their mic, but that is a very specific situation for a single channel, and easily accomplished by splitting an input to two channels.

If anyone is looking to sell a UX3600, I would be interested.

Thanks,

Jim

Do you really mean dual channel (two receiver in one box) or is what you want a single receiver with the option of using a handheld OR (not and) a body pack with a lav.  I don’t think there are any quality dual channel solutions in your budget range.

Thanks Ray! Which Senn units are you recommending? Not sure if I can get down there tomorrow.
The standard "basic" G3 EW100 units. List around $600 each but a good *coffs wink nudge* dealer is gonna take care of you. I'll be back up north 2nd and 4th weekends of June so plenty of time to meet up. Or I can send you a system to demo.

In short, no.

Will the passive model sound different than the powered one? Yes, because YOU have to do all the processing for it. The difference in sound will be the difference in the DSP you utilize. DSP which in the powered model already exists. That is to say you can make the powered model sound pretty much however you want it to.

Within the limitation of the speaker, I think the powered model will get you further with less work than any other option currently available at that price point. Punch, thickness, clarity and all the other adjectives to describe a sub is moot. If you have the powered version sitting next to the passive one, the difference in the sound will be because of the difference in processing. Seeing as how sound is subjective, what you perceive as being thick, I might perceive as being muddy, what you perceive as being punchy I might perceive as being woofy. The adjectives that describe what a speaker sounds like is not really of major importance. Really all you need to worry about is does the sub fulfill the need and CAN YOU make it sound as you wish for it too. Since the two models are essentially the same, I would say that the possibilities between them are the same, the difference being how you decide to tune it. You ( which means me and most others out there ) cannot beat the DSP that is in the powered speakers these days. The limiting and protections alone are worth the cost of entry. There is 20 bands of parametric EQ in the powered speaker. That is easily 2x as much eq as any other unit allows. You can adjust the crossover and limiting functions too. The self powered unit will do anything you ask it to within reason, acquiring any of the same potential outcomes as the passive unit.

Mipro ACT-7 series UHF. You can get the whole rackmount system within budget. IMO this probably the best bang for the buck in a dual channel receiver, especially if you may want to expand the channel count someday.

edit- can also be had with optional integrated Dante port.

Are you by chance a dealer for this? I'm very intrigued by what I've read so far.
