Thought everyone said the Terrahorns would obliterate the scoops ?

terra horns didn't sound nice at all, very rough sounding bass no real tones or depth, didnt drop low either - all to do with how they were set up i would imagine. the owner of the venue himself said he expected the bass to be much louder from all the sounds. ital vibes had some technicals which was a shame.

What about the crew with full scoops, which drivers/amps on low end?

They didn't slam either ?

ital vibes had full scoops pd186 loaded. dont know what amps though. whole time i was there they had technicals unfortunatly. will give him a bell later and find out what went on. on their last tune they were firing much better than before but still needed tuning. was expecting pressure levels to be immense....a week back heard 2 eminence ps18 and 2 18xb loaded scoops firing nice deep and low all powered off of 1 c mark 2650 and 2 u pre....scoops were 2 different pairs aswell unkown old boxes so going by that id expect fane 1000's and pd186's/1850's to do much better.

i wasn't there -but i reckon:

that room aint big enough for terra sized horns. would have been better off with Gsubs.

terras are for the outdoors/carnival floats smiley32

Thats a shame, glad people seemed to enjoy the day though. Disjunkt don't just play roots normaly, and i have mentioned to biotec before a 6dB of gain at tuning or something similar is what the terra's need to compete with roots style scoop resonances in a small venue, but the sound of the terra horns is very flat and silky smooth normaly as i designed them to be that, whereas scoops often have a resonant peak or two which can sound more musical, but less true to the original material, thats where the choices of engineering come into play, and Biotec likes it rounded and flat normaly which isn't to everyones taste, but works perfectly for most styles of music, i hope he cranked them up though as not being scoops and in a small room they still can do crazy things when pushed hard and standing directly infront of them.

Anyway, good to see the front loaded horns were allowed the midlands smiley36

still minaximal
