So. . .I sent one of these earset mics down to a client along with some Lectro IEMs he needed to borrow and he used it on a shoot and loves it. Says it's great for boom op and for use through a PA. This is a guy who owns stacks of DPA and Sanken and such and uses them daily.

We're both buying a few more.

Word is that the SD7(T) may be on it's way out, so we want to see what is on the riders out there and try decide which direction to go. Other options are currently Avid S6L and SSL Live500Plus.

Unlikely that DiGiCo is moving it along as the quantum engine for the SD7 is still quite new.

Nice. I'm currently waffling back and forth between the IG4T and IG3T. . .but ready to pul the trigger and ditch my 12" tops

Jon;
   
    I've been really impressed by these speakers. . . .

I have done 2 installs with Nanos and the Behringer NU1000DSP.
Worked great!

AD Audio Gain question here:

We just setup our 12ch AD system with 3 AD4Q rx's. Coming from UHF-R, the gain staging is completely different. On the transmit side, you're given Pad and Mic Offset which as I understand it is used to match 2 transmitters in level for a redundant frequency setup.

Since the receiver meter includes the "system gain" in the receiver, there is no way of metering just the transmitter gain. I read somewhere that AD does some auto gain voo-doo so you don't have to worry about it unless you get an Audio overload error on the TX (at which point engage the -12db pad). Is this correct?

The Shure manual isn't very clear on gain setup procedure, just what each function does. I haven't sound checked a band yet but I'm running our KSM9's at 0 pad, 0 mic offset, and -5 on the receiver. Just talking into it, I can see where I may have to bring that back a few more clicks for a loud vocalist.

The backline techs I tour with are using the pad and mic offset controls on the AD gear in the same fashion as they used the pad and gain on UHFR tx...to match the levels between different guitars that are on the same input to the patch. Seems to work well for them.
I use the mic offset to trim the tx gain down a bit for the person who tends to yell a bit in their HH.
The menu on the receiver will show what the gain is at the tx and at the rx and what the total gain is through the system.
Don't know if that makes things clearer, but i hope so. :)

What if they have been on the receiving end of loads of power?  I usually run a pair of them off one side of a macrotech 9000i. :-D

I’m also fairly attached to the cabinets.  They’re lightweight and small.  They match the rest of my rig. Generally they are used for gigs where I probably don’t need subs, but occasionally they’ll take a lot
Well, maybe not that much.  Coil burnout is usually the result of thermal overload.  Which comes from passing too much current for too long.  At some point that was all she got captain.

You may be able to find out what the original drivers were, although they probably weren't something JBL sells on the open market.  If you can find the T/S parameters, you may be able to find a modern neo substitute that is lighter and handles more power.  But there's always the risk that the tuning won't come out quite right and the speakers will unload at some practical frequency and hit excursion limits.  Be prepared to spend $400+ on a new driver for each box.

Hmm, D75 or EPQ304 would work, I'll add them to the list, but DSP would be really, REALLY nice...

Lab.Gruppen Lucia - comes with DSP, tiny, inexpensive.

Chain saw and weed whacker here Stihl. Toaster by Breville.

Stihl has one of the best names in the chain saw industry, and my oldest daughters boy friend, who owns a tree service, must have 30 of them. That's why I bought a Husqvarna, because they produce more low end torque and out cut Stihl every day of the week. But I do own a Breville toaster and will agree they don't get much better.

I bought a new pressure washer last year. It's a Ryobi, and although I don't really like the brand their washer is the absolute balls to use. Honda engine, quality pump, and some really nice features including large wheels that make it very easy to move. Knocks raccoons right on their ass at 15 yards, removes paint as needed, and every bit as good as the Stihl.

My bet is it measures open circuit.
If it's not been on the receiving end of high-power use, you might find the join between the leads and the cone itself has failed. It can be repaired if you're good at that sort of thing.

When a driver burns out, the voice coil windings often find themselves loose of the voice coil former, so you'll get some kind of noise when you push on the cone, even if it's just half a mile of copper wire being smushed around at the back of the magnet.

I don't know how attached you are to these cabinets, but it might be time to consider an upgrade.
If you tell us the internal dimensions of the cabinet and bass ports, it might be possible to put in a newer high-power driver, too.

Unless someone specifically wants to sound like Purple Rain, my take on time based effects is that you don't notice it overtly but if you turn it off, you notice something's different or missing.
