Ok so if you have enough boxes to run as the line array,  Then are the tops all using the same signal and not time delayed or is there a way to steer the sound by each box having it's own amp channel and a delay or other box to steer the signal?

There was a forum member that extensively used VRX and developed some sophisticated bi-amped (amp channel intensive) amplitude shading and time-based manipulation to make the rig behave better.  That was easily 5 or more years ago and with newer products and technology I don't think it worth the effort.  I think Ken did it because he had lots of inventory available and some fairly unique deployment requirements as well.

With the current crop of powered boxes that can be network controlled I'd be inclined to use them instead.

A lot of which has been made redundant with V5 tunings for VRX, at least if you're an ITech HD shop.  That said, I remain extremely impressed with the output and quality of the SRX-812P boxes I got last year - especially per $ spent. 

The other "new" feature that's finally available is the tilt-down pole socket - another formerly exclusive feature of constant curve boxes.

I'm glad you put "new" in quotes :)  My "new" JBL SRX 712's that I bought 12 years ago have tilt-down pole sockets.

I have "one of THOSE clients" that wants dash arrays and is willing to (mostly) pay the premium cost.  We have 32 T4 in inventory and I must say it paid out almost faster than anything I've spent the boss's money on (the fastest was the EV xW15 monitors).

A really harsh top end usually means the little EQ switch on the back is set wrong for the deployment.  There's something funny around 4kHz, too, that's present at all drive levels and all deployments.  I suspect it's a horn resonance...

But it's possible to have a good show on them, and if you can hang an actual line (about 12 boxes) the T4 really comes together.

edit ps:  nobody pays $2k for them... or shouldn't have...

Thanks Tim, they were just a little harsh, nothing nasty and the switch was set for 0 as recommended for 2 boxes.  Just a touch of eq, wide Q, maybe 1.5 db centered around 3k took care of it.  The tent was pretty active too.

Nice to know they have done well for you.  I thought they were really nicely made, simple to rig up.

I had looked up the value online so that was a general statement.

Goal of my comment was that they did the job, 1/2 the weight of the KW153's I would have brought and the site lines were vastly improved.

Yeah - a few boxes had them but most didn't - HPRs, Mackies, the various PRX boxes, RCFs...
