To be honest, most of them are focus around PA use.


Lets take a different approach................


What's your budget for speakers?

How much space do you available to house a sub?

What kind of bass are you looking for?

Punchy, Sub Low, In between?

What kind of power you can offer these drivers?

eminence are high efficiency midbass drivers.

the lab12 is designed for the horn but seems to go well in a ported box.(much lower than all the other eminences)

lowfrequency means usualy low efficiency

the labhorn is 110cmx110cmx50cm! but it needs just a few watts.
apparently its ok in the corner.perhaps overkill for most people!
:-D

- 3dB @ 19.7 Hertz

514 Liters (Outer Dimensions)

fB = 20Hz

94.5 - 95.5 dB from 21.6 - 37 Hertz (2.83 volt)

Two 15 inch woofers. (8 ohm each)

A little under $200.00 for both woofers. (Your
saving 100 pounds!!!)

What do you think?

DJ Bass Amp.

This is how it works.

No DJ will use one bass box that will play 15Hz.

You will use boxes that will play around 40 - 35hz,
and, use multiples to achieve the desired frequency.


One bass box that offers 15 - 200Hz is low in
efficiency, and, we know volume is something
needed by DJ's.

As for the 4 ohm or 2 ohm thing. You'll need
8 ohms, used in multiples. 2 ohm speakers
are for cars. 4 ohms also. Its just you can
get away with a 4 ohm speaker. But two
8 ohm speakers by the same maker, and
model number, will surpass, one 4 ohm
speaker made by the same maker, and
model number, getting more output.


Best Regards,
