====Racks====
[[Image:IMG_7258.JPG|200px]] [[Image:Crown_macrotech_back.jpg|100px]]<br />
* 3 Racks - 20U, 16&quot; deep.  20&frac12;&quot; internal rack width, including ventilation clearance. 3&frac12;&quot; casters. 22&frac12;&quot; W x 44&frac12;&quot; H x 27&quot; D - ~15.65 cu. ft. each

* [http://www.crownaudio.com/pdf/legacy/130252.pdf Crown Macro Tech 1200] (amps) (available now: 20/20) <br />
 
===="Frogs"====
4-way speakers (available now: 8/8) (45"h x 30"w x 18.5"d ~= 14.5 cu. ft.)
* Low - [http://www.jblpro.com/pub/obsolete/2240gh.pdf JBL 2240H] (30 Hz - 2 kHz)
* 2x Low-Mid (in parallel) - [http://www.jblpro.com/pub/components/eseries.pdf JBL E120-8] (50 Hz - 6 kHz)
* Hi-Mid horn JBL 2385 / [http://www.jblpro.com/pages/pub/components/2385a.pdf 2385A] (500 Hz - 16 kHz)
* 2x Tweeter (in series) - ?
<br />
The enclosure has two Speakon NL8 8-pole panel connectors for daisy-chaining them. Each pair drives each of the components. Pair #1 is connected the low driver, 2 - Low-Mid (in parallel) , 3 - Hi-Mid, and 4 to the tweeter pair (in parallel)
 
Two Frogs have dead 18&quot; woofers - <span style="color:yellow;">replaced</span><br />
One 12&quot; Lo-Mid's diaphragm is cracked - <span style="color:yellow;">replaced</span>.
 
====Subs====
(available now: 8/16) (35.5"h x 25.5"w x 24"d ~= 12.6 cu.ft)<br />
* [http://www.jblpro.com/pages/pub/components/2241.pdf JBL 2241H]
* [http://www.eminence.com/proaudio_speaker_detail.asp?web_detail_link=OMEGAPRO-18A&speaker_size=18&SUB_CAT_ID=1 Eminence OMEGA PRO-18A]
The cabinet has two Speakon NL8 8-pole panel connectors for daisy-chaining them. The subs are organized in four groups on the speaker signal NL8 bus; the subs in each group are connected to only one of the 4 pairs. Four amps can power the four groups of subs by using one NL8 Speakon cable daisy-chain - each amp will be connected to one of the pairs.
 
====Cables====
[[Media:SoundSystem_cabling_diagram_v.1.1.pdf|Cabling diagram]]
=====Patch cables=====
* 2 x 5 XLRf-XLRm from XTA crossovers to amp channels (5-way on each side)
* 2 x 7 TRS-XLRm to daisy-chain amps (4 for a second set of Frog amps, and 3 for a total of 4 sub amps on each side)
=====NL8 Speakon cables=====
These whirlwind cables are 0.590&quot; thick and carry 8 13GA conductors. [http://www.whirlwindusa.com/audio02.html look for model W13/8 here], or  MULTILINE SPEAKER CABLES [http://www.whirlwindusa.com/spkr01.html here].
* To Frogs - each component (Low, LoMid, HiMid, High) is wired to a different NL8 pair.
** 4 NL8 cables terminating with 4 dual-banana pairs on the amp side.
** 4 NL8 Speakon-Speakon patch cables to daisy-chain 2 frogs per amp-set.
* Subs - each sub is wired on one pair. 4 NL8 pairs will carry signal from 4 amps, and each group of subs will be wired to one of the pairs.
** 2 NL8 cables terminating with 4 dual-banana pairs on the amp side.
** 14 NL8 Speakon-Speakon patch cables to daisy chain 2 subs per amp-set. (we'll need only 6 of these if we don't get the extra 8 subs)
* Current Whirlwind NL 8 Cable [http://www.whirlwindusa.com/ftp/ColorCode/wwcolorcode.pdf wiring codes]:

* Rex/Dex speaker mounting plan (100% done)
* NL8 speaker cable layout plan (100% done)
* NL8 speaker cable stripping/screwing/soldering party (100% done)
