  1. Mrx 518 and xti4000

    My band currently runs 2 sp5s with a xti4000 in stereo and 2 mrx518 with xti4000 in stereo. We have not been able to get the thump that we would like. This weekend we had a new sound guy setup our system. He ran the pair of mrx518 in bridged mono with the xti4000 not realizing they are 4 ohm cabs (assumed they were 8). The combo performed well and produced the thump we were looking for. After the show I started researching and realized the mistake (I assumed they were 8 ohm also). Has anybody done this before and what potential harm did we do. Also what can we do to the system to get more thump? Thanks
  2. Amp ?

    My band is a 4 piece Southern Rock/ Texas Country band. We mic all drums, di accoustic, di bass, mic electric. We run a peavey 24fx board. We have 2 peavey SP 5 mains, 2 jbl mrx18 subs, and 3 peavey pv115 monitors. We currently have 2 Xti4000 amps 1 dbx driverack pa and 1 dbx 231. Also, I am the drummer and know very little about Pa systems. We eventually want to have 4 monitor mixes. My thoughts are to run the 2 current xti4000 for monitors with an additional dbx 231. Then run the driverack for the mains and subs. What are your oppinions for amping. 2 more xti 4000s in stereo for each? Thanks
