how come on those tms3's, the HF is central between the mid horns on some (and most ive seen) yet these seem to have some with the HF on a top/bottom end. Wierd

Hi Ginge, it seems strange being able to answer this, but when the first cabs were done the horn was on top. Its also when the horn used was from Bob Stern in Oregon. He was a systems man in the US. From what I remember, it was discovered that there was a coupling problem with 2 mid horns together, so, quite simply, they were separated with the horn, which we also used to make.

Evil things TMS3's, had to fly a pair from the ceiling in a pub just down the road from me, never worked so hard in my life (or crapped my pant's they were gonna come down again) sounded good though!

I Was at Turbosound this Wednesday, they had 16 TSW218's waiting to go on the bonfire? They had just come off tour with divvy rascal and were driven so hard they were leaking! 
I did suggest they stuck em on SP for a 100 quid each but they declined saying they didn't want them public! I imagine they'd be very good with a TMS3 stuck on top of a pair of them!

Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

I know a company in Germany that still has about 30 of the old beasts.

They rarely use them anymore, but the boss still has a major soft spot for them, so he just keeps them. Full flying gear for them and everything.

Can you imagine flying those 130kilo boxes 4 wide and 4 deep???
Endless headroom I imagine...

If anyone that worked for me stacked cabinets like that then I would sack them---What a total mess---It costs nothing but a little extra time to do things neat and tidy.

I see your point but 9 times out of 10, on tour, time is exactly what you don't have spare of...

Yes, but that picture is not on tour its in their storage warehouse and even if it was on tour, I would still expect to see neat and tidy stacking along with tidy cabling on stage around speaker stacks, amp racks and multicore systems----I see far too many messes on stage from majour tours down to small venues and there is just no excuse for it----if time is tight then the get-in should be earlier.

ah fair play I guess. That's your opinion and you're welcome to it.
I just feel it is a little harsh.
YES - If saftey is an issue, then you've got to maintain standards in the warehouse...
....but lets not forget, this is meant to be a nice chilled industry.

Mostly harmless.... except if catering is shut.
