Pretty wild. Not very efficient but play all the 20's and 30's with ease and very clean so it can get quite unsettling.
Work fine fullrange but settled on 24-55hz with usb2 above and that gets a bit silly. Had a good go with them on everything from live bands, roots & dub and various different bass music genres. Has made it a bit easier at festivals when the full spectrum means you can play quieter but still nurture vibes. Had a little surprise visit from noise management at shambala though when using the void judgement dub to get an impedance reading on the k10 and a steppas vinyl (conscious youth) to check for deck feedback... turned into an inadvertent propagation test.

They're pretty manageable. About 110kg and similar size to a psyco. Good handles.

 Same system set up slightly different at a Girl Guides Festival (Bit of an odd one for us). This was the first time i'd used this system outside with X-Series amps and some slightly new X Over settings. (I had used them before in the Tunnel above, but it still of course sounded like a tunnel regardless). It was also hooked up to the Console via AES. Had loads of Bands, singers, acoustic acts through it over the course of the weekend and even I was fairly gobsmacked at how well it performed, and how little effort it took to get it sounding amazing for live performance. (its admittedly been a pain at times in the past)  Those amps make one hell of a difference. Shame we got such strict noise limits.

Yeah not that type of gig fella. Sure it wasn't ideal, but as you can see by the steep pitch of the marquee roof, I couldn't getc them any wider. Had to light the faces somehow! 

Also all my generic lighting is on 16a ceeform, so to save taking big dimmer racks and socca breakouts, a little 4 way dim pack with ceeform sockets is ideal for little setups like this.

Hope that puts your mind at rest...

Ps. It sounded really good...Wink

Light travels faster than sound....That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!

Those Girls Guides must have been pretty wild to need all those barriers!   LOL

Didn't mean to sound critical (or annoying) - just interested in why people do things the way they do.

I'm sure it did sound really good - looks great.
