Not really sure what I want them to do yet
I listened to some tunes this evening and they definitely have the bass covered on their own above 30hz or so. The fact is, the Danleys do so well down to close to 60hz, I am not sure why I need them, but the trade was good and I think I can make these improve the overall efficiency of my front stage. If they can handle the 40-120hz area, the SI's take the bottom, and the Danleys the rest, it could be epic. From what I heard tonight, the 2242's are good enough for just about any theater on their own! It is basically like having two captivators that take way less power, but can't quite get that last 20-30hz as prominently. With EQ, they are supposed to be good down to 20hz, but I haven't messed with that yet as that is not their intended purpose to begin with (for my theater at least). Everything will end up going through the DCX so I can cater the crossovers and overall sound any way I like. I am mad happy with the interim bass machine at this point. Just running off a bridged epx4000 I ran them to reference, pretty hot (15-20dB) on some music and they just tickled the second light on the amp. I should have known as when I had the RE's running sealed up front, I had my 4648's (dual 2225s' each) taking care of the midbass and they were unreal. These just take the tuning down a shade but instead of being good up to 4-500hz, they are only ready for up to 120-140hz.
Anyways, the Corinthians are drying nicely and should be ready for the terminals that should show up tomorrow. All that is left after that is stuffing them and loading the drivers. Can't wait! All of this together and tuned properly is going to be crazy! I need more amp channels to keep that Shadow build in the mix. Right now I will be using both channels of the peavey for the SI's the EPX for the 2242's and nothing at this point for the Shadow. I COULD put all 8 SI's on a single channel of the peavey at 3750 watts which is not bad at all, the other channel to the Shadow, and the EPX to the JBL's
That is actually exactly why I am mounting the massive 8 terminal cups so I can make that decision if I deem necessary. 12 18's !??!??! I am almost Popalock style! haha
