  • Finally just bit the bullet and bought my new rig...

    After going back and forth the last couple of months debating whether to go active or passive, I finally narrowed it down pair of yorkville ls800p and a pair of ef500p for active, and a pair of SRX718S and a pair of SRX712m for passive. I would need amps also for the SRX's. I decided that they would be powered by Crown XTi4002's.

    Well, I came across a deal I could not refuse. A guy had 4 SRX712M and he was asking $2600 for them. I pulled the ropes a little bit and he was willing to let them go for $2400. I bought the SRX718S brand new along with three XTi4002.

    The subs and amps came in yesterday. The subs are more compact than I thought. The amps are pretty light too. Not quite as light as the Peavey IPR but still light. They do seem a lot more durable.

    Anyway, with the built in DSP, would any of you recommend to use onboard crossover and EQ or would you recommend external crossover and EQ. I was thinking maybe a driverack PA plus.

      Use the XTI DSP. You paid for it, it works fine, and it takes less rack space. Also, since it is a Harman product, I expect you will find settings that work for your new speakers.

        Congrats! The SRX subs are compact. We play a venue with a big stage and they have niches in the front of the stage where the house subs sit on the floor flush with the front of the stage. The club has two SRX718's and 2 of the Mackie HD 1801's. I realized after I set up my rig with 2 QSC HPR181's the other night I could get a good view of the different dimensions of each sub from out front. I was surprised how much larger the QSC's are than the Mackie's but the SRX's look tiny compared to both the others. It's amazing how compact they made that speaker and yet how great it sounds. Enjoy!

          Nice rig - I'm sure you will enjoy it! The XTI DSP is as good as a Driverack PA - no need for one of those.

                    Very Nice! A good friend a forum poster Don Davis uses 4 712's over 4718's and the sound quality out of that system is amazing. I have a pair of 718's myself, great little subs and looking for some 712's.

                      I tried to find it myself but cant. Aged, any chance you can repost or bump the thread?

                          Thanks for the confirmation guys! I was kind of doubting my decisions. These subs are indeed compact. I saw the UPS guy carry them (one at a time) from the truck to my doorstep and I thought "Man, that guy is strong!" When I unboxed it, I realized how light they were.

                          And thanks for the link to the post with the settings.

                              Hey Bob, I pulled the trigger and upgraded to 4 - 718's and they are the bomb! Used them in a 2000 seat theater this past Sunday and they rocked it.

                              Tomis17, thats going to be a very nice rig, congrats!
