  1. In all fairness this post is from 2003. I kind of doubt the person who made this post still has this issue. Doug
  2. New 1.08 firmware is out. https://www.behringer.com/behringer/product?modelCode=P0BV2&fbclid=IwAR30plMwkhyKq_xy8jcLabYD_ifJhsDjvehD6ulgCMuxuVNIIZrMpPaQZ_I Doug
  3. Look ahead Noise Gate. https://forums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,173132.msg1595843.html#msg1595843
  4. Something I do when I don't have a good tuned drum or no way to get a good "Click" is the take the 1 channel that the bass drum microphone is coming in on and assign it to 2 channel strips. (If you have a analog desk get a Y cable and feed 2 channels that way) I eq the lows and extreme highs out of this 2nd channel and get the best paper/click sound I can get and layer it on top of the normal channel. You can experiment with gate and compression if needed. This brings out plenty of paper, easy to control and layer. On the "Normal" channel you don't have to eq that big boost in the 1.5 to 5k r
  5. Yeah, the QW-1's were heavy. Looks like 154 lbs. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/121309/Peavey-Qw-1.html Doug
  6. Consume Said- "How many people did it take to get those QW-1's on top of the DTH subs?!?!" Honestly I did it myself. I had a system worked out where I started them upside down. Slid them on so they ended up on their side on top of the DTH-Sub. Think of the letter T. Then I would pull them back and stand them up on top. But I was MUCH younger then. (I'm older than you are now though) Fantastic speaker with very good controlled coverage. I had 3 Peavey CEX5 Digital crossovers to make it all work. The 3rd CEX5 crossover was for the old center fill. But too heavy for me. I believe the QW-1'
  7. I now use Db Technologies IG4T's and IG2T's with the LS801pb subs. Funny though more than a 30 year span most are in the same room that these pictures where taken in.
  8. I went from the QW-1 / DTH system to am to a Yorkville 2-EF500P tops and Yorkville LS800p's. This in some ways bettered the Peavey system and was a back saver.

  10. Post a picture of the crossovers in the back. I'll know if they are stock or not. Yes, those are DTH-218B subs. The woofer that is reversed, with the magnet showing, has its input wires reversed as well. Both cones move forward and back at the same time. The anti-axial arrangement of the drivers eliminates even-order harmonic distortion according to the manual. I later coupled them to Peavey QW1-s and that setup would work rather well. The down side to the subs was they really needed some power to get up and go. For awhile I was running a GPS-3500 bridged for each one but the weight was just
  11. Maybe build or buy something like this. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/726030-REG/Whirlwind_SBNL18442_SBNL18442_SBNL_Series_NL.html/?ap=y&ap=y&smp=y&smp=y&lsft=BI%3A514&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3PW8h9vy6gIVhL7ICh2BYQONEAQYAiABEgKdk_D_BwE
  12. I might rethink this. What if at some point you don't use the speakers or 1 breaks down and you can't use it for a few shows? I'd go with a true Speakcon snake. Have a stage box much like what is used for a XLR snakes and have that on each side of the stage to plug into. Speakon's selected as needed. Less failure points and can be used for different speakers should you have a failure of some point. Remember the 1588's have some eq adjustments and padding in the passive crossover. Be sure to take a good look at the values and use those as you go to an active crossover. I owned a set of those
  13. It's all how you look at it. There is 40 stereo channels but they can't be switched to Mono for 80 mono inputs. The reverse is if you have lots of stereo keys boards or other stereo inputs then you don't use up 2 channels for every stereo input needed. Each channel also has an alternative channel input as well. To me I like the 16 stereo Buses available. ( the same as 32 mono if you needed 16 stereo outs for IEM ) The desk is truly loaded in its price range. If its the right desk only the person who is buying it will know. I like a desk with more local inputs so I can bring only a desk for s
