We rented a 40k generator from ipswich for around £140 for two days - although that was due to a cock up on their part  Smile

Hello!
Just a quick question...
Is it worth making just a pair of HD15 and use it with my 3-way 300w speakers? Should I expect deep and loud bass from just one HD15 per side or it’s better decision to make a sub instead horn cabinet for my Eminence Kappa 15 pro which is my best buy at the moment? I’m having small parties in backyard during summerdays...
Thank U!

Be better to make a sub mate.

You need hd15's in stack of a mimimum of four they won't go as low as a reflex cab either so for a small set up a reflex cab would be better.

Bass coming from horns sounds different to reflex boxes.  Perhaps try to find a horn that can do a wider range, the HD15 is really for the kick drum region.  Perhaps one of the horn plans on the homepage of tis siite would be good?

I think it's the fact that people don't know me.. therefor are cautious... I probably would be too thinking about it.. damn annoying tho.


I think once Florian (giveortake) gets his done... we will join forces and there WILL be a silly HD15 linkup somewhere in the south... shame nobody else wants to play.

working on getting rupe's 2 hd 215's ready for a proper outing, re doing the curved horns and adding bracing. Then count backlash in, and probably Totem sound system too no doubt!

Basically for the best results use one phase for sound only off a 3 phase genny to avoid the difference in alternating voltage. basically you get 3 peaks per cycle. Ideally if lights are used have them on a separate generator or separate phase, BUT biggy here.... ALWAYS try and balance the phases on a 3 phase generator to avoid too much current flowing in the neutral conductor. ideally all 3 phases balanced exactly then in theory (dont hold me responsible though) there should be no current in the neutral conductor!!!

I'd recomend a small petrol genny for lighting, and a larger single phase genny diesel (as they handle bass a lot better!!!!) for amps and other sound kit!
