If you liked the size and output of the Meyer 500-HP, then you may want to take a look at the JTR Captivator 212 Pro which is a fairly new 2 x 12" design.  A search here should turn up several threads discussing this sub and it just so happens that there is a powered pair for sale in the Marketplace right now.  By the way, the asking price for used Meyer 500-HPs seems to be around $2,000 per box.  It is a 10 year old design, but is still a current product for Meyer.  I have no idea what the new price would be for it.

I think I just bought them. Don't discount the Growler if your reference is a 20 year old W bin. 4 Growlers easily replaced, and then some, two Community VLF218 for me. The VLF218 is about the same size as the TH118. Each Growler is about half that size. For me they are easier to utilize for smaller shows where space is a concern. Put all 4 together center clustered and they get the job done!

Iím not sure Iíd go the Meyer HP500 route just based on that one time use. I was getting lots of low end from the hanging line array too so Iím not sure how much bass was filling the room from just those subs. When I would walk past them though I definitely knew they were working. I didnít ask what the line array boxes were but I was able to get a good look at the subs while waiting on the band to show up. They definitely surprised me for output versus size, especially since Iíve learned they were double 12ís.

Since I ground stack my rig I would either need something tall enough to stack my U15Bís on or have a pole mount cup. Iím sure thatís not a big deal these days as it seems everything has a pole mount to it. The next thing would be how easy they are to move around. Iím not concerned with the weight so long as Iím not having to pick it up to move it, so either 4 casters or tilt and push! I donít have a budget yet since again I went into this looking to just add 2 more wís so Iíll need to see what I like and then put a budget together based on that.

Iíve also looked up those yorkville es21ís on their site, thanks for the link. Those are a little smaller than my current subs but about 50lbs heavier, so thatís something to think about as well.

So who on here is semi local to Atlanta and what do you have that I could come out and listen to? Obviously I need to run up to Danley, but what else are the locals using? Feel free to do the private message thing if youíre not wanting to advertise to everybody. Also is there anyone local that could help with measurements for my current subs so I can at least compare specs? Thanks everyone for all this great advice and suggestions.

I think the power module puts out 4000w at 2 ohms, which would be 2000w/speaker if using the 4 ohm drivers.

The plate amp has a parallel speakon out. Made it easy.

So Iíve found a pair of QSC kw181ís that friend has, and Friday I just picked up a gig and Iíll have a pair of something supplementing my rig, Iíll find out when I pick them up what they are. So far all I know is single 18ís.

Does anybody near Atlanta have anything from JTR that I could come listen to? Iíll even help on a show for free just to have a listen to some boxes! I just donít know many people in this huge city that does audio on my scale!
