leave the sub off for now untill you get the second one and an amp to drive it http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif

CHeers mate, Will do.

My other line of action was, I have an Mcgreggor 200w Mono and, I was going to feed that via another mixer, then use the sub that way, just to try it out, that way, I will have my 2 peaveys on the audiohead and the sub on the mcgreggor.

 

Once again, Thanks for all your help guys.

PEAVEY ! I'm a great Peavey fan. The equipment is worth the money and will last for years and years.

I back you up 100% on that!

 

If you have the cash get these, you would love them, we have them but in the 8ohm version.

I not sure how you'd be trying to run a sub-bass off of a 2nd mixer, as in theory, the amp for the sub-bass could be fed a signal from whatever you were going to run into the 2nd mixer.

 

Remember too that 200watts (even at 8ohms) isnt going to do a great deal as far as sub-bass goes. Sub-bass eats watts...

My setup will be, Laptop supplying stereo signal to a mixer then out to the Audiohead as a stereo signal fedding two speakers.

 

If I run another siganl from the Laptop to the mono amp, will it not convert my original signal to mono? Unless I just use one channel for the sub, I suppose that will do for a few months until the funds build up, and the missus is talking to me again.

I'm assuming your sub has a passive lo-pass filter fitted. If not the sound that comes from it will be terrible as it'll be trying to play frequencies it was never designed for. Couple that with the muddiness from the frequency overlap between tops and sub and you have a recipe for disaster.

 

You'll be wanting an active crossover and as Gary says a large dollop of amp to pump into that sub. 2 times it's rms rating is the generally accepted amount.

 

Also (just re-reading your post again) with any mono signal, you want to make it a mono 'summed' signal - e.g. both left and right signals are combined to give a full spectrum mono signal which can then be fed to an amp for sub use (or whatever).

 

Most active crossovers will have the option of making the sub output a summed mono signal of the stereo input.

Wow, I am totatally confused now.

 

Peaveys turned up today, but they are in the neighbours and they are not back home yet, so its killing me.

 

sub is going to turn up next week. I am going to try a few experiments, I might end up buying another 500w per channel amp and another sub, so it may balance out better. will keep you all informed.

 

Once again guys, Thanks for all your help.

Paul.
