 I am doing AV for a new dance studio thats being built. They do all types of dance in there. There are three studios, two are about 1300sqft and one is 2200sqft. I believe i am going to need some form of sub so the dancers can feel the music. The ceilings are open and are about 12-13 feet high. I cant figure out how much wattage or what speakers are going to be right for the space. Any help would be more then awesome! Thanks

Edit: needs to be in the air(other then an sub)

Budget? I would think, if you really want the dancers to feel bass, you are going to need at least 2 15 inch subs per room. Maybe a professional/bar type system will be required!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Look at the Octasound SP810A for the smaller and the SP820A for the larger studios.

With Crown 14M pre-amp/mixer and XLi 800 Series amps for each studio.

You need to look into pro audio, this forum is mainly concerned about home audio. I would look into QSC's live sound equipment, Behringer live sound, JBL pro, Mackie, etc. Take a trip down to your pro-audio store to see what they have. Many of the guys in the DIY forum also tend to be more knowledgeable about pro audio installation.

Agreed. A pro audio setup seem to be a best fit for this use.

What I suggested is a pro setup. Plus it is easy to wire, cuts down on reverberation, and can go loud.

Get crown amps. Get Tekton Lore Bookshelves and mount it on a high wall. A pair of these for $649.00 will fill up that room fine with the crown amps pushing 1000 wpc. Get a HSU sub and your set. Tekton speakers are known to sound musical which is what you need rather than accuracy. They are high effiecient and go loud with clarity.

And dont go for 2 subs because for your situation its not important. Get the largest sub you can afford thats ported because you need output and LFE more than anything else since you talked about "feeling" the music etc. 1x 15 incher will do fine over 2x 12 inchers.

Tekton speakers and Hsu subs will be beaten to death within a day for that application in those rooms, especially if you put those speakers on a 1 kW amp. It could be regarded as voiding the warranty as well.
