Please don't listen to these other posts, they don't know the unique climate sensitivities of the lab sub.


We have a hermetically sealed, climatically fulfilled, bonded labhorn storage facility in our shop.  As a service to the LAB we will store them for you.

Way to be a team player and help out a fellow sound guy. Giving without any thought of reward. You should be commended!  ;D

Going all the way back to 1970 I never heard of storing PA speakers in climate controlled places.

Agreed.  It seems to be condensation, not temperature, that does bad stuff.

I've found that mice like to take up residence in horn subs, especially when stored with the fold path horizontal. If possible I would store them with each of their mouths blocked by a neighboring cab (e.g., mouths facing one another). Mouths down against plywood would also work, so long as it won't warp and create a gap. Rule of thumb is if you can slide a pencil in a gap a mouse can squeeze through.

Of course, if we ever go back to work again.

This gives me an idea. Since festivities are slim, perhaps there are other lucrative options for a plethora of subs?  ???

I am thinking of some sort of mobile vengeance service, wherein an individual could pay to subject their enemies, disliked coworkers, or a competing firm to a litigious amount of bass at an inopportune time.  ;D ;D ;D

I've been having thoughts like that for a long time. But the enmity toward my enemies has not yet surpassed the effort necessary to enact such a project.

I can't find the article right now, but a couple years ago, someone up in the Bay Area put a big Meyer rig on a flatbed and parked it around town playing airport noise to protest a new airport expansion.

Not sure this is an issue with modern drivers but back in the day it was an issue for large cone woofers for the cones to sag when the cone was perpendicular to the ground. It was recommended for installs like movie theaters  that the woofers be flipped every year or two. I do remember that cone surround  damping goo would run down to the lowest point of the surround on large JBL 15s like 2225s if they weren't flipped occasionally.

The woofers on my Altec Nineteens definitely exhibit this.
