I believe this to be fake news. Not a picture in sight!  ;D ;D  Glad you like the new system. Now that you've had your first night on them do you still feel you need a B system and will want to go out with it?  How was the Coaxial Tops. Sound different or close enough to what you had that it didn't take much to get where you wanted to be? Keep the reports coming if you have the time!

Aaahhh.... I'm not much of a picture taker but I so wish I had - darn!

Anyway.... I've got the DZR's coming and I know I can put them to good use ... however, I am more tempted to use the single Danley system where I can in smaller venues in place of a compact power system.

The SM80 tops do sound quite different to the SRX812's or DSR112's. I noticed the lack of a horn to my ears but not in a bad way - there were no real missing frequencies in the upper frequencies - just different.
I will need to do some tweaking once I get into a bigger room.
I did spend a bit of time over the evening making sure to get vocals and guitar to cut through the mix - not so much the cymbals as they could also cut through acoustically.
It's all matter of getting used to the sound of the Danleys and not trying to emulate the speakers I have been used to for so long.

The overall level was about the same as what it would have been on my powered system with the master fader on the mixer sitting at 0db.


That is an often used type of statement, but has little to no actual meaning.

The only thing that was comparable was the total gain was the same for a particular SPL.  The output capability could be totally different.

That could easily change either way simply by adding or removing gain from one system.

I have seen sales guys use amps with a higher gain as having "louder watts".  NO, just the sensitivity was different on the amps.

I will say that at least it gives you an idea of "where to start".  But remember that you should be able to turn it up more and get greater output, when you get into a larger space.

It's shocking how loud and clean this system will get. ;D

I was referring to where I had the amps set at 0db /-6db that Chris had suggested. It basically gave me exactly the levels I would have expected if I had used my usual powered set up at 0db tops/ whatever 3 o'clock means on a PRX718 sub.
Of course I am looking forward to  getting the whole system up in a bigger place and pushing the amps a bit more for overall volume.
THEN - and only then - will I be happy ......mwahahahahahahahaha......

Most first time bands look at my rig and tell me they are going to supplement it with something they have brought. At that point I bring up program material to half and have them stand 50 ft out. Then we walk out another 75-100 feet. Then I turn it up to the last green light. It freaks a lot of them out.. 8) 8) 8)

+2, +3, +4, etc. To both "loud and clear", and "easy to deploy".

Best regards,

John

Yup.
I've done a couple of House music DJ events, and they always look with dismay at what I brought.
Then it gets cranked up and jaws drop.
Always amazed and complimentary.

I would imagine that this happens with most if not all Danley speakers.
