Hi Doug,

    I have two ACE/QSC 570 speakers that are doing home stereo duty.

    Also a couple 1160s, the ones with 10" woofers and 150 degree dispersion horns.
I've been thinking about blocking the HF driver outlet and installing a neo
10" coax driver for some light, good output monitors...

    For anybody who's curious, these boxes were made of inner and outer walls of
carbon-fiber, with about a 12mm honeycomb core between them.
Very stiff, light, strong boxes.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

Interesting use of "Fly - track" as a handle ... I like it!

Reminds me of the 2005 Neil Diamond tour that used carbon fiber JBL boxes.

Cheers
Martin

Thinking back, the gig I did with the ACE monitors might have been Sound Image, which makes total sense.  The artist could have been The Mavericks.

Neil Diamond was likely Audio Analysts?

I lifted an ACE stage monitor once and it was so light I was freaked out really impressed.   The JBL lightweight cones were new.   I swear it was only 20ish pounds.

Hi Doug-

I seem to recall Mike Adams being involved prior to QSC buying them. IIRC QSC had some ACE type boxes [I was their rep] but I don’t recall much about them other than the weight and high price…  Last I knew Mike was at VUE.
