I recently bought a pair Chauvet Intimidator Spot Duo 155s that are rated @ 32W per bulb. I'm debating on taking them back because they do not throw a constant beam. Is there a general wattage minimum in order to achieve this?

No, unless there is something in the air for the light beam to reflect off(dust, moisture, fog/haze) then the beam won't be visible no matter how powerful the fixture is.

Well, the Loudspeaker System Showcase demo offerings are new and different by default from the previous year.

Havenít seen much released at namm this year that is pro audio related, anything Iím missing???

dB Tech has some new powered speakers


Loren I was just discussing the same thing with a friend. The pro audio end seemed quiet this year.  I know EV has a new 12Ē powered stage m9nitor and the Evolve 30M among what others have posted below.

Hi Friends,

We have a bunch of great gear that has seen very limited use available for sale.  More items will get added to this list over the coming weeks.  If it's still listed on this sheet, it's still available.  Please make offers on anything that you might be interested in--we're cleaning house!

Thank you,

Thinking back to the start of the Live Audio Boards Subwoofer sub-forum - the intention was a place to house and discuss sub plan(s) from LAB participants who desired to build DIY sub(s) that were Pro level. 

A nice the original LAB Sub project is essentially archived due to newer technology drivers available now - does it make sense to have a limited number of additional designs?  Even if not revolutionary.  For example - front loaded small sub (dual 12"), horn loaded high output sub, horn loaded low extension sub, etc?  All designed around the newest generation of drivers rather than low cost, with a lower cost option that is "good enough"? 

For example - Keystone sub. 

The goal would not be to "reverse engineer" any subs, especially not ones Tom Danley is involved with commercially. 

If a new poster wants to build something, based on what they are looking for, we could direct them to XYZ Amazing Sub Model ___.

To follow up on what Jeff said, there are ways to get an idea of how much illumination a given ligthing fixture will produce, and how it will look.  Look for the "photometric" specifications for the fixture. Compare the beam (in degrees) with the field numbers. The closer they are, the less "spill" of light outside the concentrated beam there will be.  Also look at the illumination (in lux or foot-candles) at a given distance. The narrower the beam angle, the more illumination for a given light source.  The closer the light to the surface being lit the greater the illumination, too. It is the inverse square law at work.

How much is enough is a different question, but you can at least get a sense of the magnitude of intensity from the specs. You can always dim a light that is too bright.

I also suggest that if you can't easily get the exact model of sub you are looking at ahead of time, you should build a full-sized model out of cardboard to make sure it fits into and out of your car. I can fit a pair of JBL PRX618s-xlf subwoofer into my Prius (plus tops, stands, etc), but just barely.  It is a hassle to make the mock-up, but a lot less trouble than fbuying a used sub and then finding out it won't fit, or fit in with the rest of your rig. Just measuring where you are going to put it isn't the same as getting in and out the door or hatch. (Don't ask me how I know this...)

I'm going to be the asshole and say it. The budget and the need/want do not align. You will not find a $500 subwoofer that is worth owning used or new that is under 80lbs. and performs to the degree needed. You can't even buy the raw materials to build a sub from scratch with $500. Yes you can find a $500 subwoofer, yes it will make noise, but it will either be heavier than 80lbs, not perform well enough or will require other hardware that brings the total cost above $500 ( so outside of budget ).

My suggestion: If you have been getting paid to do these gigs with what you have, you will/can continue to acquire gigs with what you have. So continue to do the gigs with what you have and SAVE MONEY until you can afford what you really want. The JBL SRX line is worth every penny and is nearly impossible to beat performance-wise for the money. You can spend more to beat it, but you won't find better for less. Used or B stock is an option, but I find that time and patience usually wins out. The time it takes to save the money and the time you spend sourcing a good vendor to buy from will generally mean you get what you want at a better price than Tim, Tom or Marry can find on ebay. If it works don't try and fix it. Save your money so you can make a single better purchase 1 time instead of pressing the panic button and making a panic purchase.

how handy are you with tools?  There are simple to build designs for the Eminence 3012 LF and 3015 Lf.  I ran 2 to 4 (compact 12 design from Greenboy) under Mackie tops for a while and it ran well.

Your budget is def a limitation as is your Honda.   Realistically, to significantly up your game, those will need to be addressed.  In my area, I rent QsC K Series rigs for DJ support air amount.  Maybe you would be better focusing on the front gear and striking up a relationship with sound co that can bring the boom.

I'd certainly want a road case for one if touring.

Yep, that's all I've ever used.  Browse through dead-case world and find one the right size and sit on it.

Lately as I near 50, I've added a stadium cushion.

Still mostly I stand though, If the back's hurting then I adjust the console height and lean on it occasionally.
