Mackie Speaker Compatability
« on: February 08, 2007, 11:05:54 pm »

 Rolling Eyes
I use a VLZ 24-4 board along with the following active speakers:
SRM450  (2)
SR1530  (2)
SRS1501 (2)
Stacked just like that.. Before I had 2 subs I used a 3 foot pole between the 1530s and the 450s...

Someone mentioned that I may not want to use the 450s on top of the 1530s.. (he didnt reply when I asked why)...
Does anyone have any input on this??? Thanks

Also... would it be better to take the 1530s off the subs and group the subs together in the center or off to one side?

Thanks very much in advance for the help... Smile

Look up Comb Filter in the study hall. Plenty has been talked about two 450's next to each other.

The basics are, they weren't meant to be arrayed. They have a 90 Degree coverage. they are covering the same space and canceling and boosting frequency's when used together. You will get much cleaner audio if you only use the 1530's on the sides, and maybe use the 450's for Delays, or Front fills?

Clustering the subs in the center will boost your available output and such. Others can explain better.

How did you safely put a 1530 on top of the 1501 with a 450 on the top of it?

Thanks very much for the info!!
I will look into getting some sort of stand/platform to get the 1530s off the ground. So now even as 'front fills', I need to watch the distance between the 450s right...
Would I benefit by having the front of the subs (when grouped)point against the wall/corner, or front of stage?
Please excuse my ignorance here.. I sure appreciate all the help. I have been using this system for 4-5 years now... but apparently not to the full advantage....
