Well it is definitely cheaper, but now that I think about it for live sound there is a utility piece you need anyway... The FBQ100 or one of the more expensive versions. I don't think any of the amps with DSP have this feedback eliminator technology yet. You could always go simple on the amps and get a DriveRack between the amps and mixer.

yeah

so THAM15 or SS15 jbell
also i want to use those light neodymium magnets that are super light
i dont mind to sacrifice a couple of db's
also i want to use 12mm wood with braces instead of 18mm without
have read that 12mm with braces is same efficient as 18mm but without the added weight

I was just going to say that you could do better for $129:

Find some free wood, etc......
