Anyone had any problems with X1's going for a walk???

We tried a prototype at a gig at the weekend and it was just wandering around all over the place, even with a decent sized full range cab ratchet strapped to the top of it.  If it had had a longer speaker cable it would of probably made it's way out of the club door and f**ked off down the street....

"It sounded like a million fire engines chasing ten million ambulances through a war zone and it was played at a volume that made the empty chair beside me bleed."

Hehe the angle the speakers mounted at is prolly optimal for making it hop around, whether its on the botom or side! (couple of concrete blocks kept a bp6 i once had  (died in a horrible incident, made of chipboard...doh) in check, but it didn't get as much as a x1)
What I cannot create, I do not understand

Try some of that non-slip rubber matting they use to face walkways and things.  Greg (yeah sorry to bring back those painful memories  )  uses it between LS1200 and PS15b to stop them sliding around and it works very well.

Or just build double ones so the forces help cancel each other... you've got a big van now and you're a strapping lad!

Void V18-1000.  At the time we were only driving it from a 700W amp as it was just providing some sub in a bar along with one of our old full range cabs.  If and when we use them with the rig they'll get 1700W...

Sound nice though, got a good few positive comments...

LOL not if they are tied down.

Anyway a good way to stop speakers slipping is use large rubber feet on the bottom of them.

I found a ridiculously thick rubber matt under the main 500amp+ fuse box in a warehouse I happened to be strolling past recently. Its rated to 50,000v and is designed to prevent electricians killing themselves, although its the perfect length for a stack of 1850's, 4 wide on their sides. Only trouble is it weighs about 50kg!
