In Topic: XTI4002 and JBL STX825 settings?

you can open audio architect and copy all the setting from an amp that does have those speakers into your XTI.

These are some power hungry speakers. If I were you I'd use speakers that have higher sensitivity and lower wattage.

How do you calculate the box dimensions? why did you choose 3 way design over a simpler 2 way design? Normal magnet vs neo?

Each of the 12" drivers you gave me the link to van handle, if limited properly, up to 3000W each at 8 ohms. That much power would require a powerful amp such as the i-Tech 8000 and the likes.

Best of luck

Dear Taylor,
Sorry for the late response, I'm very occupied these days with pressing family matters.

Your setup sounds good to me, just that loud pop coming from the sub is what's troubling me. It can either be the voice coil hitting hard on the back plate holding the magnet in place or some other kind of distortion, not good in both cases. To make the amp not go into clip you should engage the PeakX limiters so you get only clean power no matter how hard your drummer hits the kick. Other then that you might need some more subs or higher power subs to fully reproduce that strong kick.

Do you have any limiting going on inside the DRPA+?

Will go into the different configurations shortly…

That's great to hear but unfortunately not always the case. Most of the time to actually know what the max voltage output of the source and if it would suit another type of gear's input sensitivity would require a True RMS DVM and about 5 minutes to measure the voltage values of the data in question. If the values are correct the all you will need are the correct adapters, but if it's not, you'll need "the box" :)

If you don't have the DVM but already have the pro amp, connecting it to verify if it all works together is the correct route.

Power wise both the XTi1002 and the XLS1500 are sufficient but the XTi is much more configurabe and I belive you need that configurability so my vote goes for the XTi1002. No need for the 2002, the 1002 is plenty powerful.

For the limiter setting for those speakers on the XTi1002:
10 X Log (50/275) = -7.4 dBfs

Just to verify, what are you using those speakers for? Have you listened to them?

If they are in the same location as the 412m and subs then you should also configure them with a HPF at 98Hz at the same 24dB/octave butterworth type.
