jdcrox, ok, Cerwin Vega..... what other names should I look for when shopping for speakers, receivers, etc.? Any to avoid? And room correction, how is that done?
mtbdudex, as far as the other equipment.... I'm not sure what we had but there definitely isn't anything worth keeping. We had a party that got a *bit* out of hand.....
Anyways, turnkey vs DIY.... I'm not even sure what you mean by that. What would each entail? (are you talking about building those so called "bass bins?")
commsysman, thanks for your reply, I'm checking those out right now... What if we got four of those speakers, would that be overkill or **** things up acoustically?
Thanks for your replies!
One more question. Where is the best place to put something like a JBL 735? On the ground, on a stand, or do you think we could get away with hanging it from the ceiling and still get good bass? The higher up it is the less likely it will end up flooded with beer or in pieces....
Turnkey = you pay someone to design, install, and tweak the system to suit your needs.
DIY = you do all the work yourself, budget, plan, buy, install tweak (DIY does not always mean "make own stuff", sometimes yes it also involves that)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turnkey
SO you had a party that "got a *bit* out of hand".....what got destroyed and what needs to be replaced?
Now you've got me curious, post a picture of your frat home room and its current gear, destroyed and still working.
I asked you to list what you had in earlier post.
You got some decisions to make.
Read some of the post's at Gearslutz, that forum is definitely better suited for "Live Sound", they have a sub forum called "Live sound" you might find intresting, http://www.gearslutz.com/board/live-sound/
Check out Parts Express Pro Audio area, to get a feel what replacement items you are lookign for and their cost, spec, etc.http://www.parts-express.com/cat/pro-audio/6
Instead of telling you "what to do - spend $xx on this, $yy on that", I'm showing you "get educated on what you need, make informed choices" - it's your $$$.
Obviously if your equipment got damaged/destroyed by its location - floor level, repalcing it with new equipment in same location seems not so wise, up high and angled towards the crowd, like so many bar venues do just to avoid that issue - and distribute the sound among everyone.
