On this float, what are the cabs to the left and right of the picture?

I thought at first stasys 3's but they look maybe a bit tall from some of the shots, so is that Prime?  Maybe just the angle of the shot.

Also, they are on top of smaller half height cabs that are also trap and match their dimensions?  Are these some sort of kick bin or small sub i've messed?  Smile

36 amps, Monday afternoon for a very, very brief period before we panicked about getting turned off completely

Was only pulling about 13-14 amps at most from each of those Infinite 8s most of the time though. The cardioid setup worked really well, and in fact the amount of bass you heard at different points seemed to match your simulations almost perfectly. The advice was very much appreciated.

We had 7 Infinite 8s but we were only using 4 of them for most of the carnival, ended up with a few as backups. Felt it was best to run all the bass at 2 ohms so that each cabinet was getting the same amount of juice instead of some at 4 ohm and others at 2.

Brilliant photos, but then the camera you were lugging about looked really good! I'm going to get my photos up as soon as I can find the stupid non-standard USB lead for the camera I was using.

wtf? That's the wrong side of things. Do you really enjoy that much patching speaker cables?

I also noticed how the Meyer systems sounded really irritating. What it is really about is that they really let you hear what is being inserted into the system, or that is what I've been experiencing with Meyers.

Nexo systems sounded pretty much nothing special, same goes with D&B.

Here's a few none system related pics first.
 
Massive thanks to Bry, Dan and all the Dirt crew.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Void had 5 floats this year and some Stasys bins on a static system. We started setting up on saturday morning.
 
 
 
 
One of the floats had a film crew that were making the UK's first 3D film. So we had to keep stopping and the director would get everyone into place for the shot.  It also ment we couldn't put a lot of system on the float and had to keep levels right down.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This was Turbosound supplied by SLR. There is always two floats with a radio link playing the same signal.
 
 
Rear shot of the Nine Bar system.
 
 
A lovely crowd of people infront of this system later on. It always gives everyone a really good time.
 
 
The 11am speakerplans turn out. Funny how 100's always say they will turn up but only a few ever do.
 
 
The back end of the Punishment float. 8 Stasys 8's were behind the Stasys 3's with a further 8 Stasys X's behind that. The whole setup was and end fed cardoiod setup to increase the level and projection from the back ofthe float. Klye said it right when he said I was teriffied of that float. The mad thing was they were getting readings of 147dB from quite some way from the float and I asked Klye if it was running flat out. He said no and then pushed the master faders up loads more and it got about 3 times louder. Frightening. I've been doing systems at carnival for 20 years and I've never heard anything like that.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is what happend when the Punishment float drove by.
 
 
Some of the amps driving the system. I can count 7 Infinite 8 V2's, do you think thats enough Klye.....
 
 
 
 
Jah Observer. Not loud and not the best sounding system, but if you want the most authentic roots system this was the one. Some very serious tune connoisseurs present.
 
 
Martin Line array. Throw a long way, but was too arggressive to enjoy
 
 
A pic of the Punishment float. It was even shaking my eyeballs from this distance.
 
 
 
 
Setting up another Void float before the scrims went on. another cardiod setup that had Stasys Primes added on the rear.
 
 
The Dodgy crew, ha ha.
 
 
Most of the time I was drawing around 40 to 60 amps from the genny. Did see 28 amps on an Infinite 8 V2 at one point.
 
 
 
 
 
 
One of the Void floats with the scrims on.
 
 
Saw 3 floats with Meyer but all of it sounded offensive and messy. Such a shame as it dosen't have to sound that way.
 
 
Stasys 8's under some EAW for the latin street dance system.
 
 
Cue Mykey......
 
 
Another Void float with the scrims on.
 
 
 
 
One of the forum members who gave a hand over the weekend. Thank you.
