you got me... I was just double checking myself on the xls.... no usb port / bandmanager -- bummer.

The kappa pro15lf2's are great drivers, just limit to about 300watts per cabinet, and build more cabinets. I seem to get along better that way than beating hard on 4015lf's or other higher power drivers that work in the ss15.

more cabinets loafing is my answer vs fewer cabinets pushed to their limits.

check this little devices , they are pasive and you can choose your highpass point

fmod's are bad idea. You are better off doing all active crossover.

You really need a dcx2496 or a driverack, or something for an 'elegant solution.'

A 'redneck' thought for you. You can put your xls into highpass stereo mode 30hz(ish) on both channels, and then run an active crossover to set your 100hz (ish) lowpass for sub channel, and 100hz(ish) highpass for top channel in front of the xls. Even a cheap-o car audio crossover works if you are budget strapped.

I'm really keen to try the JB1500N, could build each cab for <$500 all up which is insanely cheap! especially for Australian-based builders... I wonder how hard they can be pushed, will definitely try to build 2/4 in the next 6 months or so.

Not sure if running an SS18 alongside the SS15 will be beneficial, probably better off putting the effort in to more boxes of the same...

hmmm interesting point there bitsmasher. i want to end up with a dozen like a pic earlier in the thread. but i must say, the difference between 2, and 4. is mind boggling.

im running 4xJB1500N on an EP4000 and ive barely got it on half and they run quite happy like that.

im doing a party on saturday, so ill let you all know how i go. last party i did, i cooked all three of my subs and broke one of my tops... lol there will be a small amount of footage, and a few pics. so ill keep ya posted.

the amplifier. i have it on less than half gain, as in, they dont need full 1200w to run happily pumping away.

i have two JB1500N in parallel on each channel.
