    using MRX518 and SRX718 subs together

    HI All,

     I have gig this weekend at 250 person club. The band has offered me to use their pair of MRX518 subs along with mine. (My current rig is 2 srx 712 tops and 2 SRX718 subs.)  This is a dance band that plays bass heavy music.

    I have searched the forum archives and read that it is not a good idea to mix diffent types of subs due to phase issues. My fear is that the two differnet models of subs would make a muddy mess or cancel out some low frequencies..

    I was wondering if there are any resources to read about the problems of mixing different types of subs?

    I have run sound at this room before and usually center my two SRX subs. which works well for the rock bands. My other option is to borrow my fiends SRX 718 sub and use the three subs centered.

    At this point I am planning to use the three SRX subs but I am curious if anyone has tried using the MRX and SRX subs together ?

    Gosh would be hard to tune them in to equal I would think, from what I hear the SRX are monsters and no comparison to the 518's. I certainly wouldn't do it "cold". If you had the time to set it all up and tune the gains to work with each other may work, but 3 SRX's should kick some serious booty I would think. From what I've read on here one 718 is about equivalent to two 518's, if so then your three 718's would equal six 518's. Also those 518's don't go as low as the 718's, I would very well think you could overdrive those 518's and not even hear them splattering like the dash speaker of a 74 dodge dart that's parked outside in the middle of a desert everyday.
