    That is a minimal change from the 18\" version, so I'll stand by my recommendation.

    Ok so what exactly does this mean. 45hz BW18? LR24?
  • DraDra Posts: 3,844
    Those are the X-over filter settings that you'll input.
    The range that the subs will cover (hz) and the type and slope of the filter points (BW / LR / etc). 45hz to 110hz, then the top cabs will cover 110hz and up.

    Now is the PX only suppose to be used for live applications or can I use the same settings for DJing as well?
  • DraDra Posts: 3,844
    If you DJ \"in person\", then the PX is for you. If you \"play\" DJ in your bedroom for yourself, it still is for you. \"Live\" is a reference to the AFS filters and not the source of the music (musicians or pre-recorded). Live means that the filters are \"living\", ever-changing for the need of the moment, \"not (usually) permanant, not \"fixed\".

    The difference between Live and \"memorex\"...is, live music is FAR more dynamic, Most of the recordings of today are so compressed the life is wrung right out of them... Live sound takes far more power, thusly, the settings should reflect that fact.. If, as Dra is saying you are talking about the AFS you probably won't need that very much unless you spend a lot of time in front of the speakers...

    But I often act as Live sound engineer, and DJ all in the same evening.. so yes, the Driverack is capable of both on the same system...

    Automatic Feedback Suppression (the Feedback button).

    OK. What do I do if I am using 2 different mixer. (one for my bands - 16 Channel Yamaha and one when I DJ - Pioneer) Do I have the capability of creating more than 1 preset or do I use the same preset for both mixers since I am using the same FBT speakers?
  • DraDra Posts: 3,844
    You can set up a preset for every venue and for every set-up if you wish. A preset for no subs, ect. The sky is the limit (up to the number of presets available.

    I tried to set these values in but could not see it when I ran through the Setup, EG and AFS Wizard. Am I suppose to enter these values instaead of doing the wizard? If so...............where exactly do I enter these values...the subharmonic button?

    I don't have a PX, but it is in the x-over or filter section (whatever it is called).

    FROM THE MANUAL.

    3.3 Navigating the High-pass and Bandpass Filter (SETUP) Section

    To edit the parameters of the high-pass and bandpass filter used in a selected preset, simply use the following procedure.
    From preset mode, press the SETUP button.
    Once you have reached the high-pass and bandpass filter module, navigate through the pages of the selected high-pass and bandpass filter module by pressing the \"Next Page\" or \"Prev Page\" buttons successively until arriving at the desired Page.
    FrequencySlope presses of the Data wheel will select effect parameters

    Hmmm,
    You have hijacked a 3 year old thread, and look very much like a spammer at this point.

    If you really do wish to get help here, go back to the front page and find and read the "READ ME FIRST BEFORE POSTING" thread...

    Then come back and start a NEW thread using the instructions in that thread.
