I do mostly dance music events, and the wisdom seems to be "2 subs per top". I'm very interested in the cardioid mode of the 118s as I'd like to have a ton of bass without it overpowering the audience, and sometimes we have medium sized rooms instead of open outdoor spaces. My current setup is one KW 181 and two 153s. If I add on 3 KS 118s, will cardioid mode still work as intended? Is it even worth the extra $$ per subwoofer?

One more thought, are you daisy chaining the speakers or using a L-R inputs?

Daisy chained through the subwoofer. I'm Actually wondering how I can chain up all the speakers to the subs if I go ahead and add 3 extra subs to the setup..

At any rate, I've taken the speaker to the shop. It kicks back on and off, so it's obviously something fiddly with it's insides. Thanks everyone for your input!

Professional mixers usually have around a 75ohm output impedance on their balanced outputs. Power amps are 20 - 25k input impedance typically.
So... 20,000 / 10 / 75 = 26.6 power amplifier inputs in parallel as a safe maximum.

Loop systems have been known to cause intractable problems with single coil pickups.  If you use any instruments with pickups this should be an important consideration.

If you exclude the stage from the loop (and keep the loop wire a respectable distance from the stage) you can minimize the effect.

We don't have a worship band..no electric instruments used during service..
Although I could be tempted to whip out my beloved 1967 Strat and play my Hendrix inspired version of How Great thou Art....   😂😂   that would be my finale as I leave the church due to stress caused
from working on church audio/tech.     

You might not use them during regular worship, but what about special events like weddings and memorial services? There is often a desire to have special music, and that *may* include performers using instruments with pickups. Be aware of where your loop is, and instruct performers to stay outside of the loop.

Pat is a wonderful guitarist and composer.  Probably the best reason to like him was his description of saxophonist Kenny G "...he has a limited improvisational vocabulary".  8)

If Mr Metheny likes Bose, he's close to the mothership (a few miles on the Mass Pike) and probably has a guest pass in his car... but he's not providing audio to The Masses, which I think disqualifies him from *our* profession.


Touche...

Without digging too deep into the details - loop if designed right (they aren't simple) beats RF.  The number one hesitation for loop is cost.  If cost isn't a big hurdle, and Listen or Williams designs the system themselves - go for it.

You didn't go see the Clair-provided tour with all Bose?   ;)

I do not own a Bose system and never plan on purchasing one. I can admit that one reason, (not the only reason) that I have never even considered purchasing one is because of the guys that I work around that own Bose systems and think they are the end all-be all for sound. I know that is not much of a reason, but it works for me.

But, with all the bashing that goes on concerning the Bose systems this post by Robert made me laugh (at myself).

Pat Metheny...What would he know?.....LOL. ;D  I would say he is qualified.
