Let me know if the triple 12's ever go on road test.  
I'd love to try them.

Evan would have to work much harder, with bigger amps than the Powersoft K10 we had in NYC...  I don't think he can pull that off yet.

Ive got a PL6.0 I could bridge into the pair. Twisted Evil


But, I'd be glad to test drive your subs. Smile

They took 2500 watts each in NYC, with a track that had sine waves below the cutoff of the Growler.  They did not blow up or smoke out.  EM Acoustics 215 box let out magic smoke at the rep's request to drive it til it quit.

If you use the recommended HPF, I think the Growlers would survive such powering on the type of program you typically have.

You will have to work harder.

Have fun, good luck, and don't blow stuff up.

What's the fun in that Laughing  I have blown up literally hundreds of loudspeakers back in my rental days.  A lot can be learned from that.  Ie: what caused it to fail, what could be done to stop the failure etc.

Of course that was back when loudspeakers were less robust, but then again we didn't have the power we have available today.  But we were trying to get just as loud Very Happy

Looks like you'll be first up. Dave Dermont is giving up his dibs however you have to give the growlers to him next.

How many Growlers are going out on this Road test?  I look forward to seeing Evan's feedback given his ongoing subwoofer quest!

Tentative Schedule:
East Coast
1)Evan Kirkendall
2)Dave Dermont
3)Brian Bolly



I'm south of Evan in Richmond, VA. Right now, I'm running 4 VRX918s. We also have in the shop TX9s, and a variety of older single 15 and 18 subs (JBL, Yamaha, Klipsch). Power options range from QSC PLX series to Crown XS to Crest CA-9; no fance DSP amps in the shop yet. We have a no-name analog crossover, as well as DBX 260 and Behringer 2496.

Gigs range from band to corporate to DJ, and we are in the market for new (more) subs. I am currently leaning towards JBL MR518S or 528S to match the drivers in my VRX, but have heard such good things about the Growlers, over and over again, that I'd like to give them a shot if there is an available slot.
