The event was at a church in loughborough and was called The whole earth chanting.

The sounds the AI created was very harsh to speaker drivers and went quite low down in frequency, at some points in the low 30s. so we only used the system at about 20% percent during the main event and the tops still cut through to the back ok, Yes everybody was seated at the event.


On sound check it was stupid, we did not dare turn it up any louder because we had just reassembled all the magnets 30hours before on the bass drivers using industrial magnet adhesive and then reconed them. so we was worried the glue had not fully cured yet and the church was seriously shaking aswell. but everything held up and we had no problems our end.

Nice venue. Where was that? And the event?

Was it  a sit-down as in the photo? If so, a bit of overkill on the gear then. You could most probably have done that place with a couple of boxes on sticks! LOL

Brand new built sound system designed and built By Resonant Sounds.

Our new distro which has four xlr combo line in, four xlr combo Mic in, six xlr outputs. Three Rj45 ports one of which is for ethernet with poe for powering the Wifi router. the other two Rj45 for routing audio in out between matrix mixers and dante audio. Three 32a inputs three 32a outputs and three 16a ouputs on the front , on the back has iec connectors and powercons to amplifiers. The power meter is a acuvim II meter which we use with rs485 serial converter to ethernet.

Processing is done with a 19" rackmount matrix mixer on the back of the rack. with software control over Wifi.

Amplifiers Pkn Xe5002 powers compression drivers. Cvr d-2004 mids and bass.

Mid tops 2 way custom design 1.4" on a Tractrix horn and two 12" drivers. the grills are honeycomb very open area on a curve for stiffness.

Bassbins are our own design single 18" loaded, with a 2mm grill to stop them flexing which was a problem before. The boxes have triple 18mm brace at the front to stop the mouth flexing and triangle braces inside the mouth

Each stack has one cable from the distro with Nlt8 connectors which connects to the back of the tops. then out the tops are two Nl4 connectors for the bass, the patch leads for bass are wired in 4 pole with 2.5mm which is in a double ring to the driver terminals. the wiring is 5mm from the amplifier all the way to the drivers on bass.

I like how the wood finish on your speakers sort of match the interior of the hall. It's not the exact same finish but a way better match than regular black speakers. :)

Here is a pic from a proof of concept day we did in Melbourne town hall (home to the largest pipe organ in the Southern Hemisphere). This was all in preparation of an event called Heavy Congress which is part of the Rising festival here in Melbourne. We will be putting in a total of 12 different crews speaker stacks around the venue with 9 stacks from 6 crews going into the main hall. The whole thing is going to be a free and we believe will be the largest gathering of DIY Sound Systems in Australia so far.

Pretty sure those two cubos with the grills were built by bee for me back in the day loaded with 1850s. I had 8 at one point, and they used to sign.

Feeling pretty lucky after a big summer of events! 1 month into Autumn and things are starting to slow down a bit (thankfully). A few big name European acts have relocated down under (I am in New Zealand) and have been regulars on the festival circuit.....

This is the one that got me banned. There was a T.W audio system going at the same time on the main stage. He had 8 of those lovely dual 15inch bass horns.
