Greg Cameron replied to Brad Perry's discussion Aux fed subs or mono fed subs..???
"There is no difference if the auxes are run at unity. Same net result as using a mono bus. The only difference is with aux based subs, you can dial the level on individual channels down or up from unity if desired."

Greg Boucher replied to Brad Perry's discussion Aux fed subs or mono fed subs..???
"Again, only speculation but perhaps to just "flavor" certain instruments with more low frequency. I get what you are saying about the High Pass. I still mix analog but I do have selectable hi-pass on each channel"

Brad Perry replied to Brad Perry's discussion Aux fed subs or mono fed subs..???

"Mr. Cameron, as usual you provide a lot of valuable  information. You are probably the most knowledgeable guy in pro audio! What you said especially about the low frequency content maxing out makes a lot of sense (though I wonder if proper EQ…"

Greg Cameron replied to Greg Boucher's discussion Bi-Amping or Passive. Pros and Cons?
"If you want to be able to get the most output and clarity from most systems, multi-bandpass (bi-amp/tri-amp/quad-amp) is the only way to go. I think Danley is the only company that has truly high powered and very well designed passive crossovers…"

Brad Perry replied to Greg Boucher's discussion Bi-Amping or Passive. Pros and Cons?
"My small sound company uses exclusively Peavey QW2/QW218 combinations for FOH...... from one of each per side up to 4 of each per side. Tri-amp processing with Peavey's VSX26 DSP units.   I always bi-amp the tops. The QW2s are very good…"

Chazz N Fredrick replied to Greg Boucher's discussion Bi-Amping or Passive. Pros and Cons?
"Bi Amping. Well. While I was in Johnson State College, I walked into a gigantic proscenium with no dedicated sound engineer, and a closet full of neglected early 80's rock cabinets. However, the mains that were used for FOH were…"

Posted by George Petersen on July 17, 2014 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Shipments of bogus Cat-5/Cat-6 data cabling continue to arrive in the US from China. No big deal? Not quite. Often sold cheaply over the internet, it's fraudulently marked as UL certified and plenum-rated for installation in air ducts. Product has arrived in both generic and faked brand-name packaging.

 * It's not fire rated and emits toxic fumes when heated.

 * Installed in ducts, fumes could quickly spread throughout a building.

 * Its poor data integrity is a major…
