Haha Big smile. I'm just a bit affraid about the contain of the display cabinet on the right Confused.
 
Here is what I have on order originally to create multiple parts MT122:
 
- 4 Beyma 12MI100 http://profesional.beyma.com/pdf/12MI100E.pdf I saw somewhere there was an alternative for MT122 drivers.
- 2 Compression P Audio BM-D750 Serie 2 http://www.p-audio.co.uk/pdf/BM-D750.pdf
- 2 Horn P Audio PH-3223 http://www.p-audio.co.uk/pdf/PH-3223.pdf I had already choosen 90 x 55° dispersion because I planned to put the 2 MT122 medium section side to side in order to get a wider coverage.
 
Now the SMT212 design seems to be a good compromize between MT122 and X12. Will read a bit about it before make a choice.

I got busy on many other stuffs last few weeks but, finally, I will go for the SMT 212 design.
 
I received the drivers and other components this week and wood is ordered.
 
I got time to learn Sketchup and made a few drawing with it:
 
 
Here is my cut sheet for, I hope, next week:
 
 
When finished with the planned second pair of 186, the rig will look like this:
 
 
This is all I have for the moment Embarrassed

lil comment here, stack the 186's sideways one on top - get the SMT212 up to height!

Going to be a potent rig once complete! Time to get a proper bass amplifier and speaker processor also....

Amp and processor are on the "To do/To buy" list but we need to use the rig a few times order to get the money back and continue Wink
 
They will be used Today and Tomorrow for 2 gigs Smile.

Hello All,

I will start to work on the tops next week.

Waiting for this, here is a few pictures of the last use of the 186 this week-end.

My son is working with another guy to create 2 events based on young talents. Everyone in these organisations (including the 8 DJs) are from 16 to 19 Years old.





I just gave a hand half a day for the setup.





The Amp Rack with a borrowed additional amp and a processor:



Backstage:



186 Horns on side of a dual 18 sub using the same RCF drivers. So, with the processor, we worked 3 ways: Sub, horn, full range speakers. Crossover points was 80 and 150.



DJ corner. The mixer we used (DJM 600) was not yet installed.




Will include some pictures I took just before the opening in the next post.

And finally, some pictures of the light just before the opening of the first gig.

























I think these young guys made a good job transforming this small venue in a single dance floor just for 2 nights.

I am looking to build the SMT 212's however in a single driver version, so looking forward to seeing your pictures, what drivers etc have you got?

that truss build really scares me...

whats stopping it falling backwards/forwards [and holding the pieces together!]... hopefully not just those cableties/straps onto the railingsOuch. Like the creativity [layout], HATE the rigging. So damn unsafe, not to mention careless.

If you want to do this kind of thing, get some swivel clamps at least, so the thing can be clamped together properly - and actually resemble something load bearing. They are cheap and common - used by scaffolders, absolutely no excuse here. Leave the cable ties for.... *cable tieing* and use clamps for *clamping*! Also build a proper base for the thing [using truss baseplates] so it cannot tip forwards or backwards.

try getting the midtops up higher next time too....

sorry to be harsh, i can see you put a lot of effort in, the lighting and set looks awesome, but the little things cannot be ignored!
