I always liked the sound of FFA. I would imagine the lack of popularity on Speakerplans is due to not having an on-board DSP.

Dave has world class DSP in his amps for a few years now

I'm all about headroom but if you get a huge amp, even on a driver with this high AES rating, and you don't limit it and filter it properly then be prepared to smoke some coils. For that reason, if you don't have a SERIOUS DSP and know how to use it, you'd be better off with K10, or K20 with DSP, or a Linea 44M20, or XTA APA4E8 plus paying someone to actually measure your driver in cabinet to calculate the long term RMS rating in volts and the heating threshold of the coil.
we got XTA's in the racks bro , not all powersoft amps have dsp , will be sending them for upgrading , got a good price for that .

From the pre-dsp days, many of us would train our ears to detect any issues taking place throughout the event. Although, Aphex Dominator was common in those times, many still gauged the levels based on common sense. I would imagine this is why I over power all my speakers.  

 

One of the biggest issues I’ve seen are those trying to cover a venue that requires 8 – 16 bins and expect to get the same output as 8 – 16 bins using 4 boxes. No amount DSP protection is going to prevent loudspeaker failure if the user is reckless.  

 

Sophisticated DSP protection is very helpful however, should never be looked upon as “My DSP is protecting everything so I can raise the fader higher.” Continuous average levels that offer a minimum Average to Peak Ratio can damage a loudspeaker with an unclipped signal just as fast as and amplifier being clipped to the point the clip light remains on like a light bulb.   

 

If someone is investing in four Eighteen Sound 18 TLW 3000 speakers, they are supposed to be familiar with every means of precautionary methods to prevent any loss in their investment.
