Mark,
Have you decided on a sub yet?

The TT21-A's are ordered, the sub I am still struggling with.

I use the 4PRO 8003 with the TT22a.  I think they sound better than the TTS18 sub and they are little cheaper, but they don’t make as much SPL.
(note – if you use the 8003’s with TT22s  you may have to invert the polarity)

What is the reason you feel the 4pro8003's sound better with the tt series?  I heard the tts18, they sounded great, but I've also heard from fellow djs that for some reason the 4pro may have a stronger punch on the dance floor.  Is that the case?  On the other hand, the TTS18-a has neodymium driver with Powersoft Amp which supposed to be a much better made product overall than the digipro amp built into the 4pro series.  Was wondering if the gentleman on this thread made his decision as to which sub to get for his tt22.  I'm having the same difficulty making this decision.  Would it matter the fact that you're using a slightly lower model sub powering the flagship tt series on top?

I ended up getting two RCF 905as subs.  Deciding factor was size, weight, and I got a very good deal.

Neither Mr. Morris nor Mr. McFarlane are DJs, and in McFarlane's part of the world, "dancing" is very different from what you're probably used to....

Yep, dancing is illegal where I live, unless it is a group of men, typically with canes or swords.  I think live music is forbidden. I've been shut down before by the 'religious police'.  Most events are in 'secure areas' to prevent such interruption.  Ads a bit to the excitement.

Wow, coming from a family of live musicians, my dad was a big band leader and mom a singer, I couldn't imagine a life without live music let alone working in a slightly different capacity as DJ and event planner as the best therapy for helping people smile and dance.  What brings such an audiophile and fellow entertainer to that part of the world?  Are you happy with the frequency response and sound coming out of the 905AS?  Thanks again for the feedback and good luck with your endeavors :)

The difference between the 8003 and TTS18 is simple.

The 8003 is a very nice sounding general-purpose reflex enclosure.  Its bass is quite punchy.  The TTS18 is a band-pass enclosure, and its sounds like a very good band pass enclosure  :). As a very rough guess you would need about one and a half 8003 to make as much bass as one TTS18. The 8003 is cheaper.

The decision to buy 8003 was based on the need for a good general-purpose powered sub that could be use for a variety of small applications.  One or two plus a mid high makes an excellent drum fill, TT22a + 8003 makes a nice bar band PA or  DJ set up.

DJs tend to prefer the TT25a with the 8003 because you get a bit more “thump”.   The TT22a are more articulate and better than the TT25 as a vocal fold-back wedge.

I don’t do a lot of DJ work.  There is a link to the last large DJ event we did. (Main stage - Adelaide SA)  I think we used a couple of 8003s and TT22s for the DJ fold-back….

For my day job I work as a geophysicist, trying to keep gas under $10  gallon. A geophysicist is a geologist that can balance their checkbook. The music scene is not too bad, its just seasonal and semi-private.  I do a fair amount of cultural exchange type events and I get to work with some international B- and C- level acts.  Medium sized fish in a small pond.  The expat lifestyle fits me well.  My kids were born in a jungle clinic in Sumatra.  No need for an alarm clock, we woke up every morning to the call of wild monkeys in our backyard, which was essentially virgin rainforest.

I have a post in the measurement forum on the response of the 905as's.  In general I'm happy.  They are a big step up from the Yorkville NS200S's I was using.  They don't go real low but they sound good. I'm waiting for the weather to get below 120F to try them out at an outdoor gig where I can really work em and tune them right.  From my original tests thy are a little 'peaky' around 70Hz but tamed easily by EQ.
