Hi folks!

New to the fourm but I've recently built 4 mogale super scoops loaded with pd1850/2 drivers.

I'll be the first to admit I'm fairly new to the sound system scene and we are currently building a system for fun more than anything else I'm looking for some recommendations for what kind of midtops I should build and which drivers are recommended. The music that will be primarily played on this would be jungle/drum & bass. 

I hope this post doesn't come across too newbiesh I've just seen a lot of conflicting information on the Web.

Thanks in advance!

Hi djketly.. no problem for asking the question.. we all start somewhere..

My 2 pence: scoops = great choice of bass bin for jungle/dnb.. only thing you need to consider is scoops generally sound best crossed fairly low ie 60-90 hz or there abouts.. now what that means for you is you are gonna need more of a 'full range' cab to go above the scoops if you want a one box solution.. or have a 'kick' or 'upper bass' box between scoops and mid tops..  

I would say if its just for fun etc.. seek out some full range cabs on the second hand market and start making some noise/having fun with your set..

Good luck with your journey into sound-system!

Thanks jammin! I'm quite enjoying the whole woodworking aspect of it too to be fair. I might go down the root of doing mids and tops then plus it looks cooler. 😂

I would suggest buying some pro audio mid highs secondhand and refurbishing them if you fancy a project. Stuff from the likes of turbosound, martin audio, EAW etc. There are some incredible bargains to be had if you shop around and will often be cheaper than the materials/drivers to build some.

decide on a budget and get a set of full range cabs. Maybe twin 15'' to keep up with the scoops and raise your tops up above peoples heads..

Get on the second hand pages and sites and get your eye in for whats coming up in the next few weeks. The fire sale is starting. I just saw a pair of EV 15'' powered 1000w each full range cabs go up for sale at 500. They would do you very well.
