I posted this on diyAudio, but some of you here might be interested - https://www.diyaudio.com/community/thre ... 00.386725/

It's nice to be getting back to live events. I've had a few weddings and things like that, but this one really reminded me of why I do it.

Good to hear you are getting back to what you love and enjoy doing Chris.
Lets hope your fledgling business starts to flourish now we are (hopefully) post the Covid pandemic and starting to get back to life and living as it was before the pandemic hit.

Thanks, gents.

I used two of these subs for a village festival over the weekend and they did well with the following settings:

- EQ to be flat to 20Hz (requiring lots of EQ and power)
- Set a highpass filter to pick the -3dB point, balancing output vs extension. -3dB@33Hz came out about right for this one.

It's really neat to be able to choose the balance of output vs extension in real-time.


I think I might bring one of these subs to Owston and push for 10Hz.
