Not a good idea for anyone married. Your ceiling looking like a saber-tooth cat will definitely NOT pass WAF.

Yes, the pro gear has that nowadays too. Gone are the times where mixers were analog all the way through. Now many of them have onboard ADC's and DAC's, effects, compression, and all sorts of other...

I thought we were talking about analog output circuits. Whether it be on a consumer AV processor or a pro audio mixer, a balanced analog preout is a balanced analog preout.

While 100hz is a respectable number since subs are so common these days, flat to only 8Khz would be a bit more challenging. As such, I bet they had the stink EQ'd out of them at the demo. How did the...

Huh? There is TONS of pro gear on the market running fully balanced for a fraction of that. Why would implementing balanced XLR's (at consumer voltages no less) cost nearly that much?

That depends on your definition of improvement. PB2000's hit hard....probably harder than the SB16, all things considered. However, the SB16 will be faster and go lower. (Yes, I know faster is a term...

I don't know if it's widely publicized, but they honor it. I asked for the discount via chat session and the rep generated a code to use when placing my dual SB16 order.

No.



Your room will be half as awesome.




With 2 SB16's in a room that size, you could actually damage your home. Air will be moving.
