  1. Hey guys any final thoughts? Thank you...
  2. By adding another amp you cannot make the speakers go lower. You can't extend the frequency range of a device by adding more power to it. What i mean is that the speakers themselves do actually go lower than what you recommended above, so I could reet the amplifier to have a HPF of a lower value therefore any signal gets put through it which is of that freq range, then the speaker can reproduce it... Sorry if i sound like an amateur...
  3. Hi would domeone be kind enough to help me out please... Thank you
  4. Hi. After playing around with this system for a little while now I have a few questions to ask and wonder if you could advise me further on some topics. Last night I was using the system in my usual venue and one of the DJ's kept clipping the signal, normally the guys who play on it dont take the levels up but there was this guy who couldent match proper. Because of this I had to watch the amps constantly. Turning them down etc. I would like to be able to try and leave the system alone (within reason) and have confidence that It would not be damaged by someone doing this, ie would like to be able to not have to pay constant attention just in case something happens. I was thinking about buying this product and wondered if it would be worth getting or if you could recommend something similar DBX DRIVERACK PA - SPEAKER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR204727 The driverack pa continues the legacy of driverack series, which has been created by the company that has been redefining the standard of signal processing for more than 30 years. The driverack pa was designed with the purpose and vision of providing state-of-the-art signal processing, while utilizing a simple and intuitive user interface. This goal has been achieved by offering two independent channels of processing power with a linkable 28-band graphic equalizer, industry-standard dbx stereo compressor module, feedback eliminator and the 120a subharmonic synthesizer on the input, with a six channel output system that includes parametric eqs, and peak plus limiters (which are used to provide protection against speaker blowouts) and alignment delay. These features combined with the wizard setup system, represent a methodical design that is guaranteed to deliver optimal, all-inclusive processing in a completely scalable system. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: Complete equalization and loudspeaker control system Stereo feedback elimination with 12 feedback notch filters Dual 28-band graphic eq Classic dbx compressor 120a sub-harmonic synthesizer 2x3, 2x4, 2x5, 2x6 crossover configurations Jbl speaker and crown power amp tunings with setup wizard 25 user programs / 25 factory programs 2 channel xlr inputs 6 channel xlr output Front panel rta-m xlr input with phantom power 24-bit adc/24-bit dac, >110 db dynamic Range Typeiv® conversion system Full graphic lcd display Stereo multi-band parametric eq Stereo output limiters Alignment delay Pink noise generator Auto-eq with 28-band rta 240v It has a compressor on it and peak plus limiters. A friend of mine suggested something like this and wondered if it would work for my system by limiting the signal between the mixer and first amplifier thus would I have more control over whats going in. Im aware (although I might be wrong) that some of the features on this unit may be already on the amplifiers??? Also my friend says I can set the compressor to kick in at a certain point and effectively lower the volume for a short while. I would also get an eq which I would be able to adjust like a graphic equaliser (I think). OR I thought it might be better to get a new XTI1000 and drive the system better and have more headroom etc like you said before? If I got another amp would I be able to increase the frequency range so that subs go lower as I will have more power? I would then be using them all in bridge mono mode Any tips on improving this system now (in anyway) would be a big help, as stated earlier I am looking to try and leave the system so to a certain extent (within reason) it can be left alone and am confident it wont be damged. Cheers guys Wes
  5. That would be a good power match for mono operation and there is nothing wrong with running in mono. Alot of times people want stereo just to have it. Howver in most cases people in an audience can't hear the stereo as they are to far to one side or the other so the system ends up being run with the pan control straight up most of the time anyways. Hi thanks for the quick reply, what i mean is that with the extra power will the speakers sound better against the way I am running it now with the current amps? I assume I would be able to decrease the filters to give a higher frequency range and turn it up louder..? Thank you so much for helping me with this
  6. OK cool, sorry to seem dim, do you think I would get a much better performance and a better soundif I were to buy an extra xti1000 and run it all in mono..? The system is in storage at the mo so havent had a chance to set it up the way you recomended. Thanks a lot for your help though dude...
  7. Can anyone help me with this please...
  8. I was thinking actually that i might buy another xti1000 and have everything in brige mono the xti2000 driving the 515s in series? Would this be cool, they are rated at 8 ohms so if i link em in series it would be 4 ohms would the 2000watts be enough for them or an XTI4000 be much better..? How about say a 2XXTI2000 and 1 x 4000 driving all of this in bridge mono with the 515's in series...
  9. OK what im doing is that Im connecting the master line out on the mixer (Allan & Heath Xone62) its a balanced XLR out. Im going straight into the line in of the XTI2000 which is driving the MRX515's then from its XLR out into the XTI1000 which is driving the subs (518's). Is the line out going to give me pre or post filter output as Im worried that the filtered signal would be going through to the second amp and that would leave out everything below 100Hz? So the subs wouldent be getting the required signal and range? Also, one thing I thought might work to get more power would be to wire the MRX515 and XTI2000 in brige mono mode and link the speakers in series via the output on the back of the first 515? Is this ok or would it be too much for the amp? Thanks for the advice...
  10. Does anyone know the power of the amp in this JBL sub, its a crown class D amp? I dont want to know the speaker power, what power the internal amp is itself... Cheers
  11. Hi I have just purchased a XTI1000 and 2000, im going to use them to drive some JBL speakers, the 1000 will be driving a pair of JBLMRX518 subs (500 watts at 4 ohms) and the 2000 will be driving a pair of JBL MRX515 (400 watts at 8 ohms) anyway when I purchase them I was under the impression I wouldent need a seperate control for the EQ, I thought with the system architect software that I can turn the bass, mid and tops up or down? Is this the case? Does it have a graphic on the software which allows you to control the frequencys in this way, like a gain or cut? Im going to be using them in a small club for approx 100 people, would this be ok? Thanks in advance, speaker specs below... MRK518 sub 500 watts (rms) power handling 18" bass cone Speakon inputs Input connection mode internally configurable to +1/-1 or +2/-2 4 ohms MRX515 400 watts (rms) power handling each 15" differential drive® woofer for high-power capacity and extended lf performance 1.5" annular polymer neodymium diaphragm compression tweeter Speakon inputs 4 ohms
