Got the system out yesterday for an outdoor party/bbq of about 300+ people. Had a dance area of about 30x40 feet with a wooden platform 12x12 in the middle. About 50-100 people dancing. Sounded great, tons of compliments on the quality of sound. Had a dj play though them and had to hold him back from over driving the subs, was getting into the clip lights on the 6000 but didn't get too far past x-max on the drivers. Pushed the tops pretty hard and got the adcom warm. Was relatively cool out so there didn't seem to be any heat problems. Ran it all off a honda eu2000i generator (~13.5 amp rated), had the sub amp go red twice and blink off for a split second for what I'm guessing was maxing out the generator and not being able to pull enough current. Going to play another party next weekend in a 30x30 ft quasi-basement room.

Nice glad they enjoyed your hard work!

I just read a good review on the inuke6000 amp. I'll look for it now, it produced good power in 8ohms, 4ohms it started to sweat

Thanks! There is a very comprehensive review and bench test of the nu6000 on speakerplans forums. It's (more than) enough for all but the largest subwoofers.

Ran the system again this past weekend in a large room, measured 28.5x22.5x10ft, concrete floor, wood walls, glass doors on far side and 6x10ft opening to another room on the side. Subs/tops had to be placed in front of a stage about 8 ft out from the back wall and against the side walls. Needed to use double sided tape to keep the subs from walking on the concrete floor, even though they have rubber feet and are about 90lb total with the tops/poles, and had to strap the poles to keep them from turning.

Ran them with about +3db Q3 boost @ 35 hz (tuning) and +5db Q2 boost around 110 hz, LP 190hz 4th order, HP 26hz 8th order. Also set limiter at -1db and seemed to be running into it with the kick due to the boost being so high. It kept the woofer from over excursion at lower frequences, but will tweak further.

Hit about 110db sustained with 114db peaks when briefly metered at the end of sound check. The 35hz boost seemed to work well with the room nodes and give a nice smooth low end fill and ample bass presence without being one-note sounding. Many compliments about the sound, including from the band, who had their own PA gear.

I have a 15" Dayton, the same one used in this design, if anyone is interested. It won't fit in my new car .
