Passive Wedges
« on: November 07, 2018, 01:12:06 pm »

Plenty of posts on active wedges come up in search.

As for passive wedges, it appeared the SRX712m was the winner. However, as they have been discontinued, and as those who have them tend to keep them, they are not super easy to find these days.

I've had the pleasure of working with the SRX712m, and I really like their weight/size/sound. Are there any current model alternatives that can meet the SRX712m specs (again, sound/weight/size/price point, and biampable option)?

Not looking to get into an active/passive speaker debate, just curious on what you all have come across recently or what seems to be popular these days in the passive world.

Thanks.

We have 20 SRX712m in our inventory and except for 4 of them, were purchased new after JBL officially discontinued them.  They were produced in batches, apparently, because if you ordered them it could take 5 days or 3 months to receive them.  We joked that JBL kept "finding some more in the warehouse."

Not sure if they still are finding them (you might check with a JBL dealer) or not, as 20 is sufficient for our needs. ;)

I'm looking forward to get my hands on the new Yamaha CZR series, they look like a serious contender on a budget.

Apart from that I mostly run into d&b Max and EAW Microwedge these days. But they come with a different price tag.

We have d&b Max2 and Radian Apex 1200s (the precursor to the "Microwedge). Both are great, but as mentioned, the d&b box is going to cost probably double what you're looking at. I see various Radians for sale for decent prices these days (including quite recently in the PSW Marketplace). The Radians are a nice "budget" solution for our clients.

I have seen some 712Ms used lately so they are out there and they are a great little box. EAW SM200 and other similar EAW 12" 2-ways are other great options that seem to come up fairly often online.

Those CZRs are pretty good looking. Probably worth a demo.

Danley offers a few variations: SM80M, SM100M, SMLPM....are you up against any riders?  What sort of stage volume are you battling with?

I was just checking out those CZR’s online yesterday. The Yamaha PX amps have available DSP settings for them.

We're using Martin LE100's for our entry level passive 12" wedges.  We've been quite happy with them

So why not the SRX812? They've got wedge angles on them.

The SRX712m is still available for order, at least here in Sweden. They are sold as spare part

FBT has a couple of series that have 12" coaxial models and they have been well received. The EV Live X is another more budget minded model. You seem to be into upper-end equipment, so I would put money on The Martin LE100 stuff or similar. I have used the Martin LE100 recently and they sound pretty good and are resistant enough to feedback, but I do believe that you must Bi-Amp them to get that performance?
