  • I would like to reccomend Wharfedale Titan 12 in speakers. They come in a plasic enclosure, have an awesome horn, and put out pretty good bass for a 12, have a linkwitz riley crossover, made in the UK. They sell for around 500 bucks a pair. Check them out.

    • ...have a linkwitz riley crossover ...


      Does that imply that Linkwitz Riley is better than say a butterworth, chebichev, or elliptical design

      • Daklander,

        what type of PA is being used here? I hear the guitar perdominantly but the singers words seemed drowned out by the acoustic.

        Anyone heard of QSC speakers? Heard them at the local music store and they sound very good.

        Musicians friend 'Holiday Gift Issue' catalogue gave a 'Hands-On Review' of the Fishman soloAmp. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/document/fishman/soloamp?doc_id=104287

        Setup and Portability seems to be key topics.

          One of them is supposed to be the Bose PAS and the other the new Fishman SoloAmp system.
          I really don't think the it's a good comparison because the recording is so bad.

          I don't know about the the QSC speakers but they should be pretty good.

          • The MF Christmas catalog is out and Bose is featuring up to $400 cash back instantly on L1 Model I systems.

            see musiciansfriend.com/bose for details.

            Ok,.... so Bose a company that I have never seen giving any kind of discounts is giving rebates on their high quality L1 Portable Line Array Systems.

            What gives? Is it the economy? Maybe they are trying to reduce their Model I systems inventory ?

            • I heard a show where a guy used a bose PA. It was ok but not near as good as the Eons the regular solo guitar player uses in the same venue. I guess its apples and oranges ..... but mackies and JBL sound better then the bose. Load in is easier with the bose. I guess it depends on what you want.

              • Used Mackie 450's can be had for about 800.00 a pair and the 350's were recently 300.00 each for brand new ones. I use both, depending on the venue, with a Mackie 1202 VLZ that I got on craigslist for 100 bucks. I also use a Bose L1 Model 1 and it is fantastic. Again, depends on the venue. Each system works best at particular places.

                Some of the local venues have in-house systems but they are often the Peavey Escorts or other "all in one's" that I don't think even come close to a good setup in real quality sound. I have made do with them on occasion but prefer my own. Once in a while, when the gods are smiling, a house will have a wonderful system with a tech who knows how to set things!

                QSC, Wharfedale and others make excellent stuff too but it seems rare the audience really hears much difference with the better systems so I don't go the extra cost. I think it is more the performer. A bad system will almost trash the best player but few will be disappointed when hearing the same person through good gear.

                I hope to work with the Fishman soon. I'm curious if it needs a subwoofer with it like the Bose does.

                • While I haven't heard this setup, but I have heard great things about the E10P from Al Poulin . The E10P is 12" x 13" x 18.5" @ 34Lbs and the LS200P sub is 27" x 17.5" x 14" @ 55.1 Lbs. I think this may be an excellent micro PA. Has anyone heard the LS200P in action?

                  • Hey check out this new PA from Phil Jones.
                    http://www.philjonespuresound.com/PJWeb11_LS1800.aspx
                    I'm guessing it sounds real good.
                    I have played through his bass amps which are unbelievable.
                    Not exactly cheap!

                    I've been using my Acoustic Image amp as a mini PA lately.
                    It sounds great, plenty loud, will drive another speaker, has great lows ( designed originally for bass),
                    plenty of routing options, and is very small and very light.
                    Also not cheap.

                          • Hey aboutjack,

                            It's generally accepted that if you are going to pimp your new products here in the forum you also contribute by helping people here out with learning about pro audio technology, how it works, help them solve problems and understand a little bit about the whole "package". All of your past posts have been about YOUR new product.

                            Really, there's both a give and take about this kind of thing. YOu seem to understand the take part, how about some giving?
