460 pounds of fun, did you hear the demo you mentioned last October?

460lbs OMG, what a behemouth.  Fine for an install, but would never ever on my lift gate.  :)

Way back in the day the first gen 1 DJ system had a pair of Altec A4's in it - those are rated at 395 lbs empty, add the 2205's and now it's 445 lbs each.

No more of that - my stuff is all single 18's and piled up as required.

Bet those SOB's will belt out the thunder!

500 lbs is not exactly heavy IF the work you do is in places and for clients that understand professional production is carted by tractor-trailer rigs.  A cart of 4 L'Acoustics K-1 is over 1000 lbs.  A half-pack caddy full of feeder?  A cart full of stage decks?  "Here comes 2000+ lbs of *fuck you up* so don't get in the way...

The calculus here is about what factors take precedence in YOUR situation.  If you're doing gigs in 5th floor walk ups, then the Bassboss or BC415 isn't on your list, no matter how much you might need the output or LF extension.  If you're doing gigs in venues with local crew and loading docks, things change, you don't need a big stack of single driver subwoofers.

When those of us like me that somehow slithered out of the lounge gigs the first time I got to stand there with my truck backed up to a loading dock, with union stagehands and a forklift I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

Same here - I got the experience of working with IATSE stage hands and standing on the floor of a 10,000 seat arena the same day.  Those guys knew it was my "first" time and they were great to work with.  I had about 1/4 of the system I needed, but got it done and got paid.  What a learning curve.  That room looked much larger from the floor that day than it did from the seats where I had watched many shows.  :)

Great feeling for sure. We're gearing up to have a lot more of those this year, exciting times!
