What's the best kick drum mic?

I bought these speakers from Banjo Depot yesterday.  They're called "Super Bass Buster Bombs".  The 23" woofer handles 100 watts!  Are they any good?

Hi.  I'm a really smart guy who got a doctorate in sound reinforcement from Half Sail University.  I'm on my first job and found this weird cable that I don't know what it's for - it is round, about an inch in diameter, and has 3 pins.  Any ideas?  Oh, by the way, I wanted to remind you that I have a doctorate and therefore am smarter than you all.

ooohh, I don't like that scroll bar on the attached photos. Couple of other forums do that and it makes it difficult to see the whole picture. One of the forums I'm on actually resizes the photos automatically so they fit on a normal sized screen. Anyway to do that with this software?

No scroll bars for me... Pictures are fully visible on my 15" MBP.

You are obviously using a higher resolution. I run my 15.4" laptop at 1280 x 800. Not only do I get the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of my screen, but the images themselves also have scroll bars when they don't fit inside the message window.

Ok, so I hit reply..
1) focus was not on the typing area
2) I use Opera 10.63 and also Firefox 3.6.13
3) I am not seeing the text properly wrap unless I click the "fit to Width" which I used to only need to do for big photos

So, what are the claimed big reasons for the changes? And what are they?

Oh, and when I posted it, it did not return me to to where I was in the post.

I just bought a new "Kustom" sound system and it has a pair of really nice speakers with 10" woofers. It's all in one box which makes it pretty easy to carry. It came with 2 mics and lots of cables and a book. My first gig is Saturday at a hockey rink. Will this rig be enough for 3,000 people? And what type of mic should I use on the kick drum?

I't will be fine Bob, just put the hockey announcers mic somewhere near the speaker.

just put a set of headphones inside the kick, wired to a mic pre... should get you plenty of beater 'click'.

Dude, headphones are by far the best kick drum micing technique Ever. Who doesn't know that?  8)

Bob - sell that Kustom PA and use this instead - my first bass and then guitar amp, which I'm now thinking of buying back on eBay (not this particular one)

Yes, they have used that system on the TV show "Glee", the red color are better than blue.

Kick drums are large, so large diaphragm condenser mics should be used,  on the front, each side, in the hole and  mounted next to the beater.

That is a lot of work though, a wireless SM 58 will do.

Nobody uses SM58's anymore, the hot mic is the Vocopro Karaoke mic in shiny pink...

It doesn't matter what mic you use on kick at that point
