 Mine are loaded with v18 1000's, they certainly move some air! Smile

That's the one, nice! That is good to know, eventually I would like to load the scoops with v18-1000s and put the XBs in ES18s...

I wanted something that was in between PA and soundsystem, useable for bands in small venues but also would handle reggae/dub and other more bass-centric music. Not a monster but nice to have a few boxes again!



 I like that, what design are your mini scoops?

Thanks! MS18 mk1 with the recommended mod to make chamber tighter. Only loaded with XBs currently so I haven't pushed them too hard yet, but sounding nice to my ears so far...

Thanks Tinnitus Rex, scalable and versatile but with a bit of dub/reggae character was the goal!

First time out with the rig in over a year, Housewife's Choice publicly launched the first all woman Sound System in Australia. Last time we did a show was a block party on the 1st of March in 2020.
