Small, light, compact subs??
« on: June 27, 2006, 12:36:06 am »

I am currently running a one way PA system with 15 inch mains, either EV's or Crates.  I have a DBX Driverack I am not utilizing and am considering adding a sub enclosure. My question is I really don't want to carry huge subs for more smallish venues. I was wondering if any of you have any compact sub suggestions that I could purchase or even build myself without breaking my back to carry or overkilling small to medium size venues. Smaller/lighter the better...but I am still looking for a little thud and decent bass. Thanks

Embarassed Maybe this should be over in LAB subwoofer?

Don't let the size fool you. they will probably blow the pants off of any other small sub.

You might look at the Turbosound TXD-118. They're very light for what they are and have decent output. I've been running them for a while for smaller events, and beat the crap out of them. They switch to side fill and drum monitor subs for larger stuff. Of course, I run a proper amount of power and use a brick wall limiter to prevent excessive clipping.

I use a Yorkville LS700P for small gigs which is small but can be surprisingly loud. It is self powered. There are a couple of smaller subs in Yorkville line that might work for you.
