    Default SELEM audio

    Were there any dedicated folded horn sub woofers at the event? To me there was a ton of volume but not alot down low (maybe it was the music). curious thanks

    No, we didn't have any horn subs.

    Sound system at SELEM was as follows:

    1 pair 8 ohm NTX cabinets (singe 12" woofer, horn tweeter in each) fed w/ 300 watts RMS each side (Single Ashley Powerfet 2000 amp running stereo)
    1 pair 4 ohm JBL JRX125 cabinets (pair of 15 inch woofers, horn tweeter in each) fed w/ 1350 watts RMS each side (Pair of Ashley Powerfet 2000 amps each running bridged-mono)
    1 pair powered subs (unknown manufacturer, single 15 inch woofer) fed w/ 250 watts RMS each side (Each cabinet running it's own built-in mono amp)

    I agree it would be nice to have more on the low end, but I don't have the cash to buy or space to store and haul any more sound equipment.

    I love horns

    My large system currently uses six LAB subwoofers. Each cabinet houses two high excursion 12's (purpose built for horn speakers) coupled to a 9 foot exponentially expanding horn.

    They are super efficient, especially in large blocks. I push all six with a QSC PL380 (4000W x 2), and I RARELY hit the -10dB light on the amp. At -15dB on the amp the SPL meter tops out at 135dBC down to about 35Hz (for stereo blocks of 3 cabinets) or 29Hz (for a block of six cabinets).

    You can have a conversation with someone at a fairly normal volume while standing in front of them due to the extremely low distortion, but you can't really see them because your eyes shake so much.
