Just made up all my SpeakON cables. One question.... When using the neutrik NL4MMX SpeakON coupler to connect 2 x 15ft SpeakON cables,  is there any (much) loss compared to using 1 x 30ft cable?

I wager you'd be hard pressed to find a difference unless your two 15ft cables were of different gauge wire.

Thanks Taylor. This would only be in an emergency if one amp went down. I am keeping to the short length cables with an amp per stack and I didn't want to keep a long cable with me just for that purpose. I hope I NEVER have to use this method but it makes sense to be prepared  so I can get through a show running mono.

Based on this weekend,s octoberfest DJ gig, The non-XL goes plenty low, and musically.

Would the DJ "monitors" be a candidate for reverse tilt?

Looked up the Neutrik SpeakON specs for the 4 pole coupler. Minimal resistance of 3mOhm after a lifetime of use, rated 15A continuous. Iíd say you are good in a pinch as long as your cables are OK.

My Powersoft amps arrived today .... I was so excited till I turned one on and realized I am out of my depth with this. I am used to plugging in, turning the knob and off I go. My last system comprised Crown XTI6002's and  DBX drive rack which was SO easy to program. This might as well be rocket science - this poor old brain don't get it!

So first I need to download Armonia. The manual states PC XP and higher - I am ALL MAC. First problem.
From there I haven't a clue......gonna need some assistance - HELP???


I dragged out my old Toshiba laptop which surprisingly fired up once plugged in...

Debbie, fear not. Armonia is not so bad. If I were closer I'd walk you through it. It has a lot of stuff for managing big systems that you can cheerfully ignore.

Once you get it to find your devices and store a .pawx file then all you need to see is the "System List" tab. Turn on the amps, start Armonia, get a cup of coffee (it's slow), Click on the stupid "ball" icon in the upper left and tell it to open the .pawx file. In the system list click on "Details" for the amp you're interested in. This will create a tab for that amp that will persist for the session and open the main control window for that amp. From there it's pretty self-explanatory. The have funny names for things like "Ways" and "Scheme". But once you get in there it's all the familiar stuff: input routing, input EQ, output EQ, limiters, clip limiter.

Let us know if you get stuck anywhere and be assured it sucks less than some control programs.

Thanks Frank.

My first problem was I don't have PCís - Iím all Mac and Armonia is not compatible with Mac - surprisingly..
So, I grabbed my old Toshiba ( as I said in my last post) which I havenít even looked at for 3 years and which also has a defective battery but once plugged into the mains it fortunately booted up for me. It took the first couple of hours just to get it up to date and it is a dog too use but it is working.
Then, I managed to download the Armonia application and started to check it out. I registered as a user and whilst attempting to set up my system virtually, I tried to get the Danley settings Mike gave me into the application but it is looking for extension .PAWT and Mike sent me  .PAWX which you are saying is correct. I Armonia does not seem to recognize what I am trying to do.  Also the software did not recognize the Danley .SPK extensions that Mike provided for me.
I haven't even got close to how Iím going to download the settings into the amps yet.

I have Chris helping me because he is better with PC's but we are both limping through a bit and are now stuck.
I really need some guidance because this is a little beyond my capabilitiesÖ.I wish you were closer too!!

I would look into getting a copy of Parallels, it will let you run Windows in a virtual environment on your Mac and let you use all the same ports and network connections so you won't have to lug around two laptops.

I wish I knew more about Armonia (or had any Powersoft gear for that matter!) to be able to help out, hopefully the lightbulb comes on sooner than later!
