The 1208's have already been fired up a few times live.  I get more from the pair of them than I did from 4 of the 808's.  They go lower, and my regular club owners and bands said they "feel" the difference sine they actually rattle the building structure.  They do the trick for me and aren't going any where, but you always wonder if you made the right choice (especially after seeing they didn't fair as well as I though they might have) at the shootout

I wouldn't write the LS1208's off.  I think they offered quite a bit of bang for the buck and wouldn't hesitate to hook them up in a live rig to see what they can do.

There have been negative posts about the LS808's too


+1.

I recall one of the attenders commenting that they would use any of the subs at the shootout and be just fine. (rough paraphrase)

A few pages back, Even mentions that the contributor bringing the LA400 couldn't make it, so it was scratched from the lineup.

Hey!
That was me that was going shove one in my backseat... but I thought better to not travel from Cleveland with this think in my backseat since we were only going to have one!

I'm sorry! I wish we would have been able to compare 2 of these also!

Well, Im getting ready to order 4 of these, so that must tell you something. Wink

They were one of the loudest subs there, but did have a little bit of a "sound" to them. I think with a little EQ they can get very rockin'. Hell, for the price, you cant beat them IMO.

 I only question whether, going forward, we can have a proper LAB get-together without go-kart racing.  Laughing


Hey, my new house gig is about a mile from Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, a slot parlor & horse track.

Racing reopens March 31. Should we schedule the get-together before or after that date?


Is that In PA? If so I might be able to attend sonething there!

Phil!

Must be, it's the only Poconos I've ever heard of (Wilkes-Barre area).  Laughing

Of course, whenever anyone around my area says Mohegan Sun, we think of the original one in CT (second largest casino in the world).

One question from me Rolling Eyes
At the shootout, did anyone notice the TH-Mini's doing the "Sub Walk-Dance" Razz  like the Growler's have been reported to do?

Stuart,

My first exposure to the LS1208 was a club installation (perm) and after I EQ'ed/powered them properly (bridged QSC MX3000a's at the time) they had substantial output (emphasis on substantial). So much so that 4 of them outran (very easily) the rest of the PA.

Last year I purchased (6) UCS1B's but did so because I am very much into matching tops/bottoms within a manufacturer's series/line.  Had I purchased Elite tops, you can bet I would have purchased LS1208's.

Enjoy them and let them make you $$$ at the same time.  Look at it this way - you could have done A LOT, LOT WORSE!!

Nope! They stayed in place just fine.
