Well ok, nick is coming up on friday with a new mic and his equipment. We shall see. I have an inuke 6000 on them. He is going to abuse them and take them to any limits we can get to.You will?
Ok... Challenge accepted!
Put your cards on the table, let's see what it can do then.
116.7dbZ @ 10hz nearfield is the number to beat, as per video.
Note: 1 clone was used for power. So any amp up to 8-9kW is acceptable by me. Heck, go more watts than that if you think the 24 needs it, I don't mind. Only SPL matters right?
Now... I made this public video over a year ago, so it's not like the abilities of 4 LMS-18's are some Area51 top secret cola-ingredients that nobody knows about. (Just sayin')
My only condition, is that you must use a good mic or SPL meter.
A TermLab, an SPLlab, a UMIK-1 or CM-130 etc etc (something at least half-decent, well known, verifiable, and preferably calibrated.)
The challenge is open to any owners of a sealed or IB'ed 24.
Just a question though. Forgive my ignorance but wouldnt it make sense to look at more than a 1 spl number at a certain frenquency. Again, does it mean a speaker isnt good if mine can pick up 5 or 4 hz when another speaker can't. Point is room, power source material can make a difference as well. But the challenge is there. We shall see.
