Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any info about the scoop design Blackboard Jungle Soundsystem uses and the drivers that are in them.

I heard them at Reggae Geel 2022 and the sub sounded insane to me.
Very very loud with 3x 6 scoop setup with an insane SPL. 

Thanks in advance!

Did you say, 3x 6x Scoop Stacks !?

Would have expected something like that, to actually change the weather, and generate it's own gravity, as opposed to just sounding loud.

1852s play much better in other designs, as opposed to Stravens.

Ye i've never heard 52s sound gd in the stravens. Aba sounded better with the 50s than 52s. My friend also bought some stravens that were for the 52s but didnt play right with them. They tried few other drivers before selling the scoops on shortly after. He's a member on here and may comment himself.

For the amount of scoops that were there, I was also not very impressed. Sound quality overall was well above par as usual, but I don't think there was that much pressure. Stravens scoops for sure, but not 52's. I think they have RCF in them, not too sure which driver.

If I recall correctly at Geel they were using 2 X8s and an X4L to power the whole rig.
System sounded very good, especially the mid and high end, standing behind the control tower there was a serious amount of pressure during the later parts of the dance.
Still a good amount of headroom from what i could tell as the noise police is pretty strict in Belgium.

If the ASS and Steve B are 200mm, what size is considered a deep scoop?

2 of the famous deep chamber scoops are over 280/300m the ASS are a fair bit under 200 then the SB then the straven just under , but rem throat gap also makes massive diff to driver behaviour and heat build up and all 3 are different 
back on subject of BJ sound after looking at the recent pics, baskets defo not PD ,
