I cannot stress enough to not attempt to carry one of these assembled enclosures upstairs by yourself. These boxes with drivers have got to weigh 200+ pounds. I'd like to think I am not weak, but they are so heavy that even using my own weight to tip them over to get them onto a dolly is problematic.

That being said, they are amazing!

It sounds like Eminence will have another vendor Keep an eye on the website for some tour grade stuff...

You can always turn it down, but you can only turn it up so much (before you run out of power, excursion or structural integrity).
7.2.4 | A3070 | XLS 1502 | 3000DSP | 2x Aphex 124A | 2x Bic EV15 | 7x Bic FH6 LCR | 2x Bic FH65-B | Epson 5010e | 120" DIY AT Screen | 2x Mini Devastators
