think a shootout with both full and minis would be more interesting as you will see direct comparison between the full and minis. mix it up. throw in everything.....

Think that might be a bit long...

How about full scoop shootout, then mini shootout...

Then shootout for 2x best minis vs 2x best full scoops..

"Personally", my judgement will be what I hear from each cab.

If I was arranging this,

Wouldn't be any measurement, or blind test, or sine waves, or curtains, or white coats.

  • Would be each cab tested at same position, with same track
  • Other cabs outside the room,
  • Panel of 3x judges, and crowd voting. Crowd vote is 33% of mark overall.
  • Cab combo Elimation, until 2x cabs left.
  • Combos,  marked on Throw, SPL, Sub extension, comparison with SteveB full scoop
  • In final, one of the tests will be max spl possible (within owners remit)


Many people won't agree with above, but don't care.. Been to enough of these shootouts, and gigs using minis,  to know what's relevant in a test, and what isn't.

i'm more interested in private session, similar to what you did at workshop with tek, but with x2 of selected cabs. public things get too political and more energy would go into pleasing other people or clarifying why you're doing what you're doing etc if you get me? i reckon it would turn it into a long day and take the fun out of it. surely between a few of us we can get the needed cabs, book a £100 hall, between 8 people would only be £12.50 each.

LOL

In this "financial climate", I can bet there are many under arch industrial premises vacant due to business closure.

Sure one of these could be located/rented for a day, with good parking/access, and away from residential areas. Wink
