Default Which delay lines, for price/performance?

Hi there;

last weekends on campground I discovered that my foldable line arrays don't fit anymore growing up popularity of Russian art festival. At the last row frequency response was not good, all lows went to the sky...

If to make arrays taller there would be needed some mounting construction, so I would like to go with additional columns on some distance from the stage, say each 30 feet.

I've found TOA D-1103 delays for sale, relatively cheap. But they are 16 bit only, 100 KHz. What else more modern may I use, of better price/quality ratio?

have you looked at a DBX driverack it's become a must for me as a system controller for PA applications involving delay stacks or combining arrays and such...

from looking at the pic's have you tried tilting your columns down 8 to 15 degrees

I found nothing better than TOA D-1103, bought them. However, modern Behringer iNuke DSP amps have capability to add delays, it is one more option, but it requires to replace amps.

Behringer DEQ2496 and DCX2496 have delay function.

I paid about $150 for both channels, for 3 different stereo delay outputs. Now I can create 3-d array using 4 pairs of poles! :-)

16 bits and 100 ks/s ought to be good enough, unless they cut corners on the low-pass filters.

Scaffolding would allow putting the speakers up higher, and be useful for hanging banners and mounting lighting.

Right, but scaffolding would jump up costs.

If it's something you won't be adjusting every time, miniDSP works well.
