Title: What subs are flyable and under 2k?
Post by: Tim Weaver on October 29, 2018, 09:04:53 pm
A Church I work with some wants to upgrade their subs. This is a rock and roll church and they've blown one of their 118's. Time to grow.....


I recomended the RRX828 for them. A pair of these would suffice, but currently their subs are flown because they don't have a convenient place to put subs on the floor. What is out there in the realm of the 828 that has flypoints?

What SPL?  That's a better starting point than budget, especially if more on the rock and roll spectrum. 

Flyable and efficient - Danley.  All models have fly points.  The TH115 is under $2k, and while the TH118 and DBH aren't - they are basically 1.5x or 2x a typical 218 front loaded sub, especially at that price point.  Most of the other lower cost horn loaded don't have fly points (ELS 118, JTR Orbit Shifter, etc).

Are we talking powered or passive subs here?

Also is that a typo on RRX? You're looking for JBL SRX?

Sorry, yes JBL SRX828 powered.

Caleb, I donít have a target spl. They have 2 single 18ís now, and I have suggested 2 TH118ís on the high end, or 2 SRX828ís on the cheap end.

Their auditorium holds around 400 ish people. Typical metal building, but with partial carpet, soft seats, some wall treatment, and spray insulation on the roof.

Does it have to be new?

EAW SB1000z are available used, can be flown and have a tiny footprint if you wish to keep them on the floor.

KLA181, but I wouldn't recommend it over a TH118... different league.

Edited: KLA vs KW

Flown typically implies passive, and max bass per dollar implies horn loaded. 

TH118's for the high end, TH115's for the lower end. 

CSX218 is flyable and about the same price as a TH115, but doesn't sound as good and takes more power.
