I have been hearing a lot of local reports of the HF driver with the 825 blowing themselves out even on moderate level operation. I always tend not to pay much heed to such reports.
We were contracted to provide SR and engineering services for a small festival in the hills, and I really liked how the 825 sounded when i demoed them, so decided to spec the same for the festival. We don't have any 835's around, and I have an eye on them. The venue does not really more a pair in all, we sent in a pair a side, to be safe.
I made presets for the ITech amplifiers, copied eq setting off the XTI, tansfer compared them with the HD presets, and it sounded great!
To be cautious, I setup a system architect custom panel to monitor all inputs and outputs, and GR meters. the RMS and Peak limiters are set to 1/3 of continuous power, and 3/4th of program power respectively.
My partner is now in the hills engineering, last night, midway, he was very impressed with te rig. Loud and hi-fi, without him hitting a single clip or getting the GR into action. However,
During the last act, he reports one HF driver has gone down.
As of midway today, 2nd and last day, he has lost two more HF drivers, and is now happily running the show of just 1 HF, loud enough to cover the small area. He hopefully will manage though the last act. We have taken some 712's off monitor duty as an SOS.
4 x STX825
2 x ITech 4000
4 x SRX728
2 x ITech 6000
Any ideas ?
Thank you for the time.
