That photo shows 2 racks slotted together. I really think having 3 P3000s in 1 rack is as much as you should do.

Posted By: biotec

CL: let me know what you think of them when you get them running. A guy I spoke to at systems etc was telling me that the RL amps are not just an original with added DSP and were an improved design; however a guy I spoke to from EV on the stand at plasa told me otherwise?
 
Toasty: They went to some ex free party crew in Southend for a a fairly bargain price. I'm sure they'll make good use of them.
 
I'm still in two minds as to whether to lose the last infinite 8 and run the subs on 2 P3000s. I would probably be best switching to 4ohm coils on the drivers which is additional expense and I'm not sue if it is worth the effort.

they are fairly precise copies of the camco tecton32:4 and in the year i ran them i had do problems with them at all - and they were regularly run at 2 ohms.
 
they retail at around £600 - at the end of the day, the labs i run now far outperform them, but thats to de expected. as a cheap lightweight its certainly one of the best ive seen.

I need some fairly cheap and light amps for my mid hi boxes so those can be strong contenders.

The guy who owns them is a big EV user. We gave the system a good chec yesterday, and yes they sound very good. Having the iris net makes setting up and problem solving so easy. im not a big fan of using laptops with soundsystems but using this system is a delight. i took a photo of the rack so will upload it latter. i think the amps we put in, are the ones from plasa....

My amprack. I may be replacing one of the powersofts with a matrix xp 3000 (sub)....cant really test them under heavy use in my garage unfortunately so it will have to wait till i next have an oppotunity to take a bigger system out.





Posted By: toastyghost
Date Posted: 03 October 2008 at 6:17pm
Very neat and tidy, single man lift too?

How do you rate the Drawmer? Ever used an AVC2 that you can compare it directly to?


Posted By: matt andrews
Date Posted: 03 October 2008 at 6:58pm
I can just about move it about myself (with the help of some wheels or dragging), into vans and onto low stuff. Not so fun as the case is pretty large (deep for the powersofts).

Can fit it in the boot of a taxi though, marvelous when I have no option but to leave my rig in a venue overnight.

I prefer the drawmer, more metering and more transparent limiting than the AVC2 which i switched from, lovely.


Posted By: toastyghost
Date Posted: 03 October 2008 at 7:02pm
Enough to warrant the rather hefty price increase in your opinion? I rarely, if ever see the second red light on our AVC2, and if I'm close enough to the rack to see levels on the Drawmer I'd be able to see the mixing desk we use at present.

If you don't mind me asking so many questions - where'd you get the patch bay panel?


Posted By: matt andrews
Date Posted: 03 October 2008 at 7:08pm
VDC for the patch bay

I often leave the system completely unattended to get a break from being in the same venue for so bloody long. With the AVC2 i would come back to find it with lots lights on and everything running very quiet, not a good advert. With the drawmer it keeps the volume constant rather than reducing, ideal for when DJ's which havent had "the talk" come on.

I brought it while i was buying those powersofts and the bss, so relatively the difference was small

spudmiester, you need to get those ears/eyes checked.. as you definitely aren't hearing what everyone else is; maybe you mistook some knockoff Chinese tat for one ? :) ..id book in for a checkup right away; as you may be well on the way to becoming Helen, without the Keller leg to stand on ;)

then again, maybe you like the trashy sound of lesser amplifiers & speakers.. nothing wrong with that. just i wouldnt call the want to hear everything like it went through a guitarists stomp box, a desireable trait for all music.
If that suits you, then please feel free to stick to it. though dont expect that, that is what other people want. Therefore you may wish to think about what defines crap for everyone else & possibly think before you issue up such throwaway comments :)

Frankly, there are few other amps in the league of what andy makes on the sheer whallop, qualilty of sound & engineering that goes into them. it even took me some years of owning one by pure accident, alongside going through many big brands of amps, having them break down & sound less than stellar.. i hadnt at first given it much consideration; i had for my first system bought one to simply use as a mid-range amplifier ..and hadnt contemplated finding more of them at the time as i was under the illusion that the big names really knew what they where doing. and it was the only amp that never broke down, nor sounded objectionable. infact it made the system sound so sweet, that it was hired in preference to other peoples doing the rounds at that time :) Thing is, that amp was already well used when i got it too.. owned and abused by a local hire company & not a single sign of anything having ever being done to it. ..from what andy had to say of it.. its about 20 years old ! ...id like to see anyone elses amps hold up for that long; they just keep on going :)

and here it is; the 2u600:



now, ive got a whole pile of matrix amps ..and everyone else i know is kitting up with them now too; they just keep on going & get the job done ;)


Posted By: spudmiester
Date Posted: 05 October 2008 at 8:38pm
It appears I have touched a nerve.

Did you miss the bit about me saying perhaps it was just MY amps ?

Its a bit like saying ALL BMW's are s*it if you happen to have had bad luck with one once.

As I remember, the interior did not look like the above photo, the front plate did, but not the rest. The chassis was black for a start, there was a powercon for mains, and there was also a built in crossover.

I have fitted/used many amps over the last 15 or so years, Crowns, Crests, Camcos, Chevins,Peaveys, Powersoft, Labs,QSC ......the list goes on. All have their good points as well as bad points. All have failed for some reason at some time.

I have never encountered racks of Matrix in clubs, or on big tours, I am not saying they are all crap, JUST THE ONES I HAD , GET IT.

Nor for that matter am I deaf, and will treat your remark about Helen Keller with the contempt it so richly deserves .

Yes for dummy load, power as stated for about 1 minutes, nice sine wave with a bit of HF over ( 2V at 250Khz on idle), then drop to about 30% of rated power, thermal shut down after about 20 minutes. BUT, never miss any beat after 2 years of abuse, event in a 12 hours rave with 40 degree of room temperature. They sound amazing, but easy to overload the speaker if proper processing are not done.

keilamym,

How do you like the RMX2450's?   I just got 2, and i'm getting 2 more for sub duty.

Also, what do you run the CC4000's into, how do you like them?




Posted By: keilamym
Date Posted: 14 October 2008 at 10:59pm
all my my QSCs are setup for subs.. the 2450's are bridged to push a single double 18 each loaded with B&C 18TBX100s and they kick ass... for smaller gigs however, i'll just take the top rack with the cc4000s and use one for subs and the other for tops, both in stereo... to me it sound pretty good...
 
its not all muddy or nothing..... im sure its better amps out there but it works for me...
 
BUT.... when you setup the dip switches on the back, make sure you read how its supposed to be setup for bridging.... like the filters and clip on channel 2 has to be off... that i remember will cause channel 1 to clip and shutdown way to early.
 


Posted By: djtecthreat

looks like a 2u version of his 3way minipre.

Oh and I like the screwdriver.

i spot an ultrabass subharmonic synthesizer in that rack..
good boxes if you use them with care and restraint; beware of adding harmonic content below the point which your speakers/amps can handle (avoid the ultra-low button for all but the biggest subs) ..or youll suck the punch & dynamics out of the music through out of band saturation ..and risk killing the drivers / amps with signals they cant handle :)

Fortunatly i only paid £100 for it, Giles (i think) did me a deal on it due to it not being complete (not having the 32A passthrough)

Was quite some time ago

Some nice gear in this thread Clap.

Tweeter-Box - i see that you have a C-Mark 2650 in your rack, i have two of those but they're real sods to mount as the rack holes on the amps don't seem to line-up with the holes in any of the cases i use. Did you find yours lined up ok?
Sorry to hijack the thread peeps.

ah yes, the c-mark amp hole problem..
i had that too, on a shoestring budget system we put together for someone.. as far as the Chinese import amps go.. the c-marks aren't too bad if treated with care...just don't pack the punch certain uk made amps beginning with 'm' do ;)

Glad it's not just me that's having/had this problem LOL.

I use them to run 2 pairs of dual 15" reflex boxes (Kappa LF loaded) and they're fine for my needs. I don't plan on giving them too much hammer - i'm usually pretty careful with clipping etc.
 
As for the 'M' amps i have a UKP 1000 which i use for monitoring. Sounds great. I lost a channel on it a few years ago so i took it to my local repair shop. They usually just tell me to get a replacement amp and don't seem that keen on fixing the problem. However, with the UKP 1000 they were happy to work on it (replaced all the caps on one side) and it's been fine ever since.
 
I'll post some pics of my amp rack here but only if everyone promises to play nice Embarrassed
