JBL.... Still a good company?
« Reply #20 on: April 25, 2013, 05:15:41 pm »

I do agree that it makes more since if their numbers are wrong.  But I still would like to know why the falier would happen at the xover and not the actuall driver.  Is it that the xover jumps off the cliff and marters itself? LOL

RIP. FIR be praised.

Do the dbx's even have RMS limiting?

What is the practical use of the Automatic gain control? Speech applications? It doesn't seem useful for much to me. Since it adds gain it seems to be trouble looking for a place to happen.

I, personally, don't compress outputs, especially fills. And it is a mistake to confuse any type of compression with system protection.

Is the system for live use or playback?

And with a single STX835?

I am not sure what you are getting at, Tim.

I wouldn't compress outputs going to a single STX either, whether it be for already compressed playback or a more dynamic live act.

I would like to peak into the Harman tunings for these boxes but I can't get at either the files for the xti or I techs from here.

Anyways I see a lot of red flags other than simply the amp is the wrong size including being used as a fill where the operator probably couldn't hear what the box was doing, pretty significant compression leading to excess heat, and the lack of any limiting, although I am still not sure if the drive rack does more than peak limiting.

Not Enough Rig for the Gig« most likely.  Then again, he could be filling a 20' x 30' area in a coffee shop...

But yeah, I see red flags.

More people blow things up every day due to underpowering than overpowering.
I'm surprised people haven't jumped all over you for this one...

Doesn't event sound like a bad driver.  It was the person doing the driving that did bad.  I guess that does make it a bad driver doesn't it.
