I have inherited a PA rig which is BIG, ugly and has no thump.
Everyone I ask has different suggestions for it. What I want it to do it to have 2/4 good tops which will deliver me good vocal sound over a a distance of about 100 feet. Id be using these for my band at venues from pub size to small outdoor events.
The bottom end needs to be made up of 2/4/6/8 speakers so I can take as many as required for the venue.
Heres the vital stats...
At present there are 2 subs with a total of 4 RCF L18-P300 drivers.
Also 2 subs with a total of 4 Eminence PS18-6008 8 ohm Drivers. (one needs dust cap fixing)
Cabinets are MDF
The tops have 2 x Eminence Kappa Pro 15 A drivers.
Also 2 x Fane? one and a half inch throat compdrivers with fane screw on horrible looking horn.
Also 4 in total bullets. I think they are 'Audio Pro 0809 and 0803'.
Cabinets are chip bourd with ply front.
To drive it i have
2x StudioMaster 700D amps.
2 x Studio Master 1600D amps.
1 x Ampcron 3600 watt amp.
Soundcraft 5 way crossover.
Beheringer EX1000 Bassflex unit. (on sale on Ebay at the moment).
Allen and heath Desk.
So what i want to know is,
Do i sell it all and buy something more 'Modern'?
Rebuild completly new cabs?
Part ex it. If so where???
Buy some used cabs to suit?
One suggestion i had was to take it all to a prominant speaker maker in mid wales and chop it in for something sexy.
Pics to follow.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
use what you have and work on it slowly with time could start from the top work your way to the bottom, , just what you have in the tops let us know , you could get some advise build the tops , when you have monies make the next lot , that way you still have something to use at all times
