Danley SM60F and Fulcrum DX1295
« on: November 19, 2010, 01:07:56 pm »

I'll have my hands on a Danley SM60F and Fulcrum DX1295 for the next week or so.  I'm planning on comparing them to each other as well as with an FBT HiMaxx40A and maybe even a Danley SH46.  

Is there anything that anyone would like to know about these boxes?  If the weather cooperates I will try to get some SMAART traces.  I will be using an Ashley NE4800 to perform Level 2 processing for the Fulcrum DX1295.

Subjective max output, and sound quality at max output.

Pattern control as you move off-axis.

Hi Jeff -
I'll be interested to hear your observations.  FWIW, Fulcrum doesn't really shine until you use Level 1 processing.  It's what flattens the phase response.

I'll be very interested in hearing your thoughts on the SM60F. I'm wanting to get a feel for how loud they are (I have no doubt about their SQ and pattern control - that's pretty much a given for me).

If you could make some kind of relative measurement of the SM60F and the SH46 with respect to max SPL, that would give me a handle since I know the SH46, as you know. Measurements of those two under the same conditions, in the same space would be great!

Can you put some prosumer-level 3-way cabinets in the mix... (ie: KW153, PRX635, HD1531)?

Jeff,

This request is a bit off the path considering the venue, but if you have a chance could you see how the Danley SM60 performs in a home theater setting, say center chanel.

The problem with using the SM60 for a center channel is that in some cases the 60

I happen to have some HD1531's on hand so I'll see what I can do!  You guys are quickly consuming my Saturday!

flattens phase, amongst other things.

I am with Grant on this one.  No real point engaging with Dave G's brainchild when you are going to tie one hand behind the back.  

The processing is the box's magic, and there are plenty of options for level 1 processing.
