Hardware in the dorm room... *sorry 56k*

Postby ballstothewall » Sun Oct 29, 2006 8:32 pm

I figured I'd post this here as well...

This is the current hardware setup in the dorm room, and I do believe that I'm done upgrading for quite awhile. I am really happy with the current items. It sounds excellent if I do say so myself, although I am biased. These towers have far exceded my design goals of having that sounds pretty good and get loud while doing so.

The towers are 4 ported 7" Dayton Reference series drivers, morel MDT 29 tweet, crossed over at ~2khz.

The 1.0HV is running the tweets, and the CX902 is on the mids.

I use to have a Behringer EP2500 for the towers, needless to say, that is sitting in a box waiting to be sold... These QSC amps are just awsome, the quality in them is extremely high and I don't believe I'll stray very far from QSC for any future amp purchases. I would HIGHLY reccomend these to anyone needing power.

1 Behringer T1953 preamp
1 Behringer DCX2496
1 QSC CX902
1 QSC 1.0HV

Now on with the pictures!!

do those models of QSC not have the super gay fans?

You will see there is no god
And for all eternity

No, the PL and PLX amps have quiet fans with nice, precise fan control and more than adequate heatsinking along with better airflow management. The RMX series, being a more price-sensitive product, cuts some corners here and there to reach lower price points. One of these is the fan, which unfortunately can be rather loud.

Not all RMX's have loud fans; as production went on we tried different fans and used quieter ones. The early models also had fans which tended to get louder as they aged. If you do have a loud RMX fan, any 24Vdc fan will work in the circuit. The thermal protection and limiting will operate just fine with a different fan.

there is always an issue with theft. but in a dorm room, you control it more than in other settings because for the most part the only way in and out is the door, which you can control by locking it at all times. if an intruder wants to get in, he has to pick the lock or break the door down, both of which attract attention, and in a dorm setting, there are many people to attract.

I'd worry more about space saving.

There is always the issue of theft. If I thought it had the chance of getting stolen, it wouldn't be here. But the door is locked at all times when I'm not in the room and it isn't played loud enough to attract attention to often either (or late at night).

I think the best solution in cases like this is weight...a few blocks of lead will take care of that...of course not everyone has a few lead bricks laying around though...
