Help identifying speakers
« on: March 08, 2016, 12:21:03 pm »

There is a local church that has some sound issues. The speakers they have were installed around 10 years ago by Ford Audio.

My first thought was Renkus-Heinz or Danley. They do have an EV above the choir area, so I thought maybe these were EV as well. But I honestly don't know. Any help would be appreciated.

edit- after digging further, I'm leaning toward RH ST series.

Not Danley.

It looks like an EAW AX box to me.

Ivan is correct

I always liked them and had good results in large modern "echo-chamber" type spaces.  They used a MF/HF coax type driver phase-plug coupled to a large common horn that was crossed over fairly low to a set of ported 12's.
-Can't remember what DSP or settings we used
-and like most good things from EAW they are now discontinued ;)

here's their download site for AX specs

Another question. Having never dealt with EAW tech support, how hard is it to get replacement components if necessary, given these have been discontinued?

I would say it depends on what the problem is.

What sort of problem are they having and have you identified it to a specific area of the cabinet?

It could be a loose wire, or a driver, or the crossover or something else.

It depends.

I don't know what components are used-but sometimes when "custom" drivers are used, it is real hard to get replacements.

They may be "special".  Which makes them "really special" when trying to repair or replace them.

I honestly don't know. This is one of those deals (that I'm sure everyone has run into) where the customer is hell bent on getting new stuff, and a salesman is hell bent on selling them something. Stuff that, unfortunately, probably won't be quite as good as what the existing equipment could be. I was just trying to arm myself with info, just in case.

Thanks again for your help.
