mRgSr, you mentioned above these speakers are decent but have their limitations. Just out of curosity, which subs in the DIY realm to you favor?

I've had a pair of ss15's and a pair of the th18's without cone correction.

Haven't messed with the newer version of th-18 with cone correction, but supposedly when pushed to the drivers limit the cone correction will help the cabinet to sound less distressed.

The ss15's were great for saving my back and tossing them into the trunk easily. But under 50hz they fell short. If you have a lot of sub 50hz music content, the ss15's won't rock the crowd, and you could easily damage the drivers (all speakers require proper high pass filters, but DJ's can easily still drive the amps into hard clipping, and often times WILL do so for a continuous period)

Hey Mrgsr

As long you don’t define "crowd" or "large hall" in exact numbers, discussing quantities of loudspeakers/power needed, is useless…

Hi jaysinet and maxo,

You can get a pretty good idea by comparing individual and multiple enclosures in Hornresp, and it's free: Hornresp .

Regards,

Check out this forum for sound systems ready to rock a crowd:

Show Off Your Sound System - Speakerplans.com Forums - Page 1

(they are much more PA focused, whereas DIYAudio is usually more home/hifi)

Hi Maxo,
That is quiet a large hall. Wouldn't choose the SS15/3015lf 's for such gig since the max output of the SS15/3015lf is limited by the losses of the weak driver.

I thought it was better to use a large number of smaller cabs like the ss15's
instead of monster like the danleys clones or double 18's or stuff like that
i am not on my 20's anymore and i want to save my back
instead of 4 monster subs i want to use 12 or 16 ss15's
cost wise i do not know if it is a smart move but certainly they will save my back and i can scale the system as on smaller places i will use 4 or 8 only
i will split all the work with a friend who i know since middle skool
so it will not be a one man band project , thanks for all of your help

Check out these plans for the "cubo sub":

Cubo Sub
(scroll down page to see plans)

Only a hair bigger than the ss15, at 30x30x24", and probably about the same weight. Better low end extension by virtue of it being a bandpass / tapped horn hybrid design, having a larger chamber in front of the driver. Very interesting, wonder how it sim's?
