From the plans available on the internet. Which would make the best Dance stack? (Large visually imposing stack of speakers) I was thinking 2 G subs per stack with a barn door extension, and either a dual X215 ( an X 15 extended to fit 2 15's inside it) And Some sort of constant directitivity horns array.  All Active.

I was talking to an engineer I know and he chewed me out over wanting to build a system out of old stuff like the EAW BH882 and JBL 2395. I like it but apparently it's not good stuff.

1850s, HD15s, xtros. Yes there's overlap but it would be imposing.

Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

pssst, no way Sam. Only if you like 100hz!

You'd want some badboy FLH / BP6 between 20-80hz - to get some height (Tops need to go OVER peoples heads, not straight at the poor person in front of it). Think 18"/21".

Straight hornloaded 15"s, either ported or sealed chamber. 80-240hz. Think impulse response for fast bass.

Hornloaded 10" 240hz-2hz to 1.5" / 1" compression drivers. With a sprinking of bullets on top for the cats in the audience.

.. Maybe?

Or cross between mid/bass and mid higher to 400hz to get a sweeter 8" in the mid horn

Reflex cabs I should have specified. 1850's are too much for ANYTHING I do.

12 TSW-121s, 

8 TSE-218s,
4 TMS-3 V2
anything else just looks and bit, well, small, quiet and with 4 x PL 9.0 1x PL 6.0 and 2 x PL 2.0 driving it 5 way really made some rather nice sounds, the fact the whole lot looked like it may have anal sex with your Gran, if it wanted just adds to the fun...

Punisher Dance Stack. VERY nice work, is that a Funktion one unit on the very top? and what are the two boxes in the middle?

I think the Turbo sound stack costs more than my car.

Nice Timebomb. Think I've seen those kick sections before on a rig, with tiny, tiny tops above it.
