Just curious, if you have the 6x12 sub towers why did you choose to only use 3 drivers on each side?

tmazz,

The line arrays will work well in most rooms with two 3x12in's.  I am testing them that way getting ready for RMAF2021 as the ceiling height is limited.

If you are in a room with an 8' ceiling, putting in a 6x12in at 88in tall can be problematic.  My room has 10' ceiling, so no problem with the full stack. 

Another practical reason is that one HX300 servo amp will drive a 3x12 stack.  Go to 4x12 or more and you need two HX300 servo amps per side.  Waiting to hear about the new HX580 amps that are dual HX300's.

Makes sense.

Thanks

Now that CAF2023 is complete and the room is rebuilt after the water problems are solved, time to go back to the AGN Line Array project.

This is the room before the damage and repairs with the Aegean Blue AGN Line Arrays.  Will be moving them back to the listening room now that it is redone.

The 6x12's made by Ruben in the picture, base cabinets were destroyed by the water, so captainhemo is cutting a new set of modular 6x12 flat packs to build new servo sub arrays.  First set of 6x12 flat packs are here with the second set in work.  I have a plan for the remaining original sub modules. :)

Already have the Audio Weaver block diagram ready to test with the dspNexus 2x8 when the subs are ready.

Hopefully soon will have the new dspBlok and new AK4499EX DAC boards to really give these a workout.

Thanks

I feel as though I owe you, because you cured my nervosa for Led Zeppelin's "In The Light". Sent you my list, but sending it again here in this thread. Surely there must be SOMETHING you want?

Nick,
Sometimes.

The line arrays and servo subs are for my listening room.  Time to finally finish the design. 

There maybe an AGN II!  :o

Rich,

I’m glad you’re on track with this again. I’ve never experienced water damage, but remember when Charles had his disastrous situation.

Nick,
Thanks! 

It is nice to have a dry room again and the POD that had everything from the room during rework emptied and gone.  :)
