Default Bass Array Tower

Does any company make these? I am looking for something similar to the Kinergetics SW-800. Preferably something that is not 10k....

Hi jtwrace,

Have you considered making them? This is a D.I.Y. site you've posted at.

Actually, I have drawn up a design. I just don't know if for what I will spend to make them maybe I can buy them.

I think it would cost about the same to build them new or buy them used. What's the best price you have seen?

yes, I would have bought them in a NY minute. I would really like to get something that also is available. Meaning, the crossover used with the Kinergetics is awsome but no service is available anymore. I don't know what to do anymore....thoughts????

Seems like you should be able to design something pretty nice for that price. Just at a glance, you could power a bass tower with something like Behringer's Europower 2500 and use Velodyne's SMS-1 for bass management and room correction. That still leaves a fair amount of budget for drivers and materials...

Those subs definately aren't worth that price in the DIY world...

I'd bet 10 dayton 10" DVC's which PE sells for about $30/apeice would perform just as well(if not better). That would leave you with about $600 for cabinet construction after shipping and lets face it, you could have a professional cabinet maker build you some enclosures for less than that!
