more later.
Any word on this yet? Is it at least being worked on in a secret lab somewhere, or stalled out at the moment? Really curious to see where this goes.

Thanks jbell!

Use the 4015lf if you plan on abusing it.
Use the kappa pro 15lf2 for a budget, lower power option.

If budget is concern, I'd rather have a pair of kappa pro loaded cabinets, vs a single 4015lf cabinet.

32hz 24db/oct high pass. The high pass is not an option.
So, I take it the v2 didn't offer the sought-after stronger lower end?

Done, works great, been waiting months on chi-wan-eese digital amps with built in dsp for a "system"

that's all for now.

See, that's what I'm looking for. I think we can all be patient, just looking for a new glimmer of hope that something's coming. Hearing that there's an amp in the works just sweetens the deal.

Thanks again!

the most affordable "pro" amps that really works are the behringer inukeDSP
power amps
i do not trust other more affordable brands

Behringer: iNUKE NU6000DSP
Behringer: iNUKE NU3000DSP
Behringer: iNUKE NU1000DSP

peavey have their
Peavey :: IPR Series

and crown
XLS Drivecore

class D digital amps
i think you can get dirty cheap plate amps and or makes like pyle
but lower than behringer line i dont think they really stand up against the others

put my #3 and #4 SS15s together tonight. going to be cutting bracing and painting tomorrow.

Click the image to open in full size.


and i must say. WOW. i thought 2 was impressive. it nearly literally blew me away with 4.

absolutely can not wait to achieve 6, then 8, and then on and up to 12. from there, i plan on a quad of SS18s for the deeper bass that the 15 misses out on, and i think i will have quite an ultimate system.

what are the subsonic filter alternatives to high pass 32hz 24db/oct
Pasive, Active and what brand and models as starting point

Most amps have a high pass built in, and most are 12db/oct, usually 30hz or 50hz.

If you use one of those, and don't push it to it's absolute limit, you will probably be fine.

A DBX driverack, or Behringer DCX2496 are good processors that will let you set your crossover and highpass points exactly.

Peavey IPR, Crown, and other amps that have dsp built in, allow the same level of setups, and also include limiters to make sure that everything still works at the end of the night.
Even the bash500 plate amp has a high pass that can be modified (with a soldering iron) to work.


Yea 4 cabinets.... There is a post way back in this thread where I mentioned that 4 was a party.... A serious party.

i have a crown XLS2000
you can set to low pass or high pass
both channels
or to use high pass ch1 and low pass ch2
you set the freq xover point
but i t dont have a subsonic filter so i guess if you send 20hz to it
it will send that to the drivers damaging them
so i still need something to filter that so low freqs

price wise i really liked this driver

Just download the bandmanager software if you don't already have it.
ohh but i have the XLS series ( the small brother of the Xti's )
and those dont have that much DSP power
just basic high pass or low pass and thats its
