Geritass,
Seems like 2 small cabs only? Plus 2 large cabs?
How much total power? What amps?

You state "small" and "large". We do not know what these sizes mean to you? To some people a 50cm (20") cube is not small.

Danley makes subs that are 152.4x152.4x71.1cm and over 200kg. Is this too big?

It will probably be best to ask your question again in "PA systems" forum

First of all, my apologies for my bad english......

Iam going to try to explain.

Iam looking for the best subwoofers cabinets.

to me there are the big ones like Martin WSX, Othorn, Gjallarhorn, orbit shifter, etc.

and..

small or medium size like thams, cubos, mth30...


may you reccomend 2 or more best subs from each size?


thanks

for large 40 othorns will probably be enough for 40.000 people for small you could use 2 othorns per side.

the next question would be; what are you going to use as tops...

It would seem that you already have amps since you say 2400 bridged @ 8ohm or 1200 per side @ 4ohm. Oddly I have some Yorkville AP4040s that have that exact spec.
Anyhoo, you might not potentialize an othorn with that amout of power... depending on the driver you choose.

I power each othorn(B&C 21SW152-4) with one side of a Crown 12000i(4500 @ 4ohm) and they really pound.

Ok. is the Othorn the best overall sub? If yes, CAMCO Vortex6 Bridged at
8 ohms will be right?

No, there is no best overal sub. You can also build 40 Cubo18s much simpler build, less wood, compacter size. It will not go low. But with 40 stacked you probably can. Or 40 Keystones also 'simpler' build to the othorn. Won't go as low but doesn't really matter with 40.

Default You can do it with far less than 40 units

Here is yet another servo option with a smaller foot print.

PK Sound Launches Gravity 30 Subwoofer Featuring Powersoft M-Force Transducer.

Your applications 'cry-out' for deployment of this technology.
