    Does anybody know what kind of concert speakers they used before the popularity of line arrays like in the 90’s 80’s or 70’s I’ve been researching this for years.

  2. How much are those JBL speakers? I`m planning on buying a sound system and renting it and I`m interested in what you have for speakers. What board do you use? Analog or Digital?

  3. The DB Tech DVAT4 would of been GREAT for this place … Small Simple Easy to Rig and Kick Ass … Could of used 6 a side with 2 subs a side and since they are self powered NO AMP RACKS … About a 1/3 of the weight you have there now .. AND YOUR Getting OLD … Lighter is Better …. LOL…LOL…

  4. que onda picudo…
    buen sonido… un poco over kill, pero que onda ya no usas crown macrotech I veo que trais QSCs…
    keep it rocking..

  5. 4888s? great box. hows it go with the QSC amps? we got Itech 6ks running the Vertec 4888 rig. SRX 728s running for subs though.

  6. individually yes when they are pinned tother like they are no. The top speakers are about 115 lbs a piece the subs are about 160 each. That rig is a good sounding rig its just a little too much for the area we sometimes do the same venue during the rock n’ rod car show with eaw 850 combo stacks. it all depends on ehat the client wants. were you there for the cherry poppin daddies that show sounded really good.

  7. I hated this rig, this is my rig and its really not the right rig for the venue plus putting the 88s on top of the 80 was a pain in the butt.

  8. Well, it all depends on their design. You can never have anything in direct contact with the voice coils, but they usually have an aluminum cap or something and the heatsink could be up against that. I can’t be certain since I don’t have insight into their actual design. I was just saying external heatsinks can be used in a passive speaker

  9. but the heatsink to work would have to be connect to the voice coils which is a moving mass. are the speakers ported or sealed?

  10. Yup. It’s gonna get hot if you run at full power. It hardly gets warm when I usually use it. But line arrays are designed to run at full power for hours on end which will definitely heat up the coils and everything around them, hence the passive heat sinks on the box.

  11. haha wow, that’s crazy. i have a thermal % warning and protection circuit on my i-tech HD but never really had to use it since I don’t play that loud in my room haha

  12. Pretty hot! My sub nearly melted the plastic sticker I accidentally left on it when I ran it at full power for an hour one day, and that is nowhere near the power handling of line arrays.

  13. Do you know how hot the coils get on these things? They’re pushing massive amounts of power to get those high level outputs and that will cause a lot of heat in the coils. Heat sink will help dissipate that heat, extending the life, quality, and power of the speakers.
