Default Subs you can see from space!

Little did I know, the satellite that google gets it pictures from captured me setting up for a party in my backyard. Upper right are my subs.

From looking at that system, I'm surprised you didn't hear them!

Yup. 16" width and height instead of 14" and using the Eminence HL10C (long may it be remembered).

The crown is a reference II. About the heaviest amp they ever made. The last live sound gig these did I used three channels off a pair of QSC PLX2402 for 3600 watts on the subs that were hard limited to much below that. They sounded nice.

Many small front loaded horns when run as a pack are mighty dangerous. The calculator says 143 dB max SPL at 110 Hz. I was measuring them once, but could barely take them beyond 20V (600W total for all six) cause it was feeling like the fillings in my teeth were going to fall out. So I never got to test power compression limits. F3 is 36Hz on the group. F10 is 29Hz.

Here's a shot from their last real outing.

Due to a software bug with trueRTA, the level reference is around 6db less than it should be. So just observe relative response and forget a reference.
