  1. That's good advice because Intimidation gear in my personal opinion is *********. The Yamaha HS80M at £195 is priced each monitor, not a pair, but they're excellent monitors for their price really, and easily good enough to be used for serious music production if you've got adequate acoustic material on the walls of your studio. Well i'm happy that you're happy with your Intimidation monitors, if you ever need anymore help choosing any monitors, don't be affraid to ask and i'll help out wherever I can.
  2. Dpends on how many people you're wanting to provide sound for. If you're wanting to use them to provide sound for 200 people then no, they're not gonna be good enough in my opinion (if you want decent spl output), but if you're wanting to use them in your house for house parties then they will be good enough. When I heard them I wasn't impressed really. The SP118 would be a better choice to be honest.
  3. If you're gonna get an active sub i'd stay away from Mackie because their product reliability is very poor these days. Ever since Greg Mackie sold the company to Loud Technologies, it's gone down hill and now the company in my and a lot of other people's opinions who i've talked to, is not a hell of a lot more reliable than Behringer. Loud Technologies moved manufacturing to China and then started using cheap quality parts in the Mackie equipment. I spoke to a shop about 3 months ago who said they had a whole bunch of Mackie SRM1801 subs come back in for repair because every single one failed.
  4. If you think they're good you should check out the Yamaha HS80M, now they're REAL studio monitors, the Intimidation ones are pretty crap i'mn affraid to say. I used to have a professional commercial recording studio for 4 years and made dance music. I used quite a few monitors in my time, like the Macvkie HR824mk1, Dynaudio BM15A, Mackie HR624mk1, Alesis M1 Actives mk2 and KRK RP6. Using studio monitors for dj'ing at home is great because studio monitors generally have a more linear frequency response and are generally more accurate than hi-fi so you can more clearly hear details in mixes, son
  5. I'm selling a Rane TTM56 dj mixer, in mint condition, here's the link guys : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...=STRK:MESELX:IT
  6. What sub and mid/highs do you have? If you have subs and mid/highs (tops in other words) then it's best to use a low pass filter if there's one on the sub, in this case i'd like to know what mid/highs you have before I could tell you what frequency to set the sub's low pass filter to. Normally about 80-100hz is the best frequency, but in this case I don't know what tops you have so don't know what kind of eq they have on them, if it's parametric or just a high pass filter. One way you could be absolutely sure to get the best crossover frequency and filter slope is to use (if you have one) an a
  7. I'm selling 2 EV QRX212 speaker cabinets. These badboys are totally tour grade cabs and are VERY loud. Here's the ebay auction. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=130435254039
  8. I'm selling 2 brand new Celestion QXi-315 3-way professional speaker cabinets and a used but in good condition JBL MPX1200 amplifier. The Celestion cabs i got for £550 a pair and have only used them on low in my flat, but did have them on full for 10 seconds and they sound excellent, the 6" midrange driver makes the clarity excellent, and they're LOUD too. They're brand new and I got them from a stock clearence from the Celestion factory because they dont make the QXi cabs anymore. I havent got transport so couldn't get to use them properly in a hall or anywhere. I bought the JBL MPX1200 amp f
  9. I'd love to go but haven't got any transport. I'm getting a van in the new year to transport my system to and from venues so i'll be going to the 2011 Plaza, definately.
  10. If I was you i'd save up for a pair of these : http://www.jpgelectronics.com/pp/Cabinet_S...er_Cabinet.html They're damn good sound quality for what they are, and the price is excellent. They use Celestion FTR series drivers which are the same drivers used in the now discontinued QSC HPR series of active cabinets and they got amazing reviews everywhere especially in the usa from everyone who bought them. I'd personally advise you to save up, and dont buy the Soundlab cabs because Soundlab are garbage.
  11. I think Skytec equipment is very poor quality, my friends have got Skytec and RCL subs and speakers and they sound AND look garbage.
  12. I'm strictly a vinyl dj myself but I think next year i'm gonna have to start playing mp3 I think because I need to back up all my precious 1992-1995 oldskool hardcore rave vinyl which are very rare and costly to replace and the more I play them, the less they're worth, so my choice is PC DJ. Decent CD decks that are excellent for scratching on (I like big spinning platters) are expensive so i'm gonna get myself Rane Serato I think.
  13. I normally stay away from cheap gear but I have to say from the videos on youtube these Dynamo scanners dont look too bad at all. I'd rather have a 4 head Martin SCX600 scanner system but jeez, thats pricey, and a 4 head Dynamo system only costs £435 from here : http://www.getinthemix.co.uk/4-Head-ACME-D...att-Package.htm So I really dont think you can argue at all. Add some haze and they would look nice. In fact these are probably the scanners i'll get next year whehn I start doing parties again until I can afford 4 Martin SCX600 scanners.
  14. That might have something to do with RCF intending on the 7 series being used with the 705AS subs. Some manufacturers purposely make their mid/highs light in the low frequency range or have high pass filters built in like the DB Technologies Arena Pro series of which the 152 2-way cabs are at -3db down at 70hz which says to me they're designed to be used with subs. RCF's Acustica C5212 and C5215 cabs are the same, with them being -3db at 65hz and -3db at 55hz respectively, so they're onbiously designed to be used with the S8018 and S8028 subs.
  15. I very much dislike Peavey's Hi-Sys series, I used to have a pair of Hi-Sys 4xt cabs, the newer versions with the grey grilles and they were one of the most harsh speaker cabinets i've ever heard, i'm glad they're gone. Now i've got a pair of EV QRX212 cabs and they're so much better and totally rape the Hi-Sys 4 cabs for sound quality and spl output.
