MACKIE (amplified speakers)

CREST/EAW

  • Crest Audio CA9 (power amps) (available now: 3/3) (23x22x24 = 7)
  • EAW MK5194 (500W speakers) (available now: 4/5) (20x16x30 = 5.56 total= 27.8)

total cubic feet for MACKIE and CREST/EAW systems = 77

"Frogs"

4-way speakers (available now: 8/8) (45"h x 30"w x 18.5"d ~= 14.5 cu. ft.)

  • Low - JBL 2240H (30 Hz - 2 kHz)
  • 2x Low-Mid (in parallel) - JBL E120-8 (50 Hz - 6 kHz)
  • Hi-Mid horn JBL 2385 / 2385A (500 Hz - 16 kHz)
  • 2x Tweeter (in series) - ?


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" woofers - replaced
One 12" Lo-Mid's diaphragm is cracked - replaced.

Subs

(available now: 8/16) (35.5"h x 25.5"w x 24"d ~= 12.6 cu.ft)

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

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" thick and carry 8 13GA conductors. look for model W13/8 here, or MULTILINE SPEAKER CABLES 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 wiring codes:
Pin# Color Pin# Color
1+ Black 3+ Brown
1- White 3- Blue
2+ Red 4+ Orange
2- Green 4- Yellow

TODO

  • Equipment testing (100% done)
  • Signal and power flow plan (100% done)
  • Equipment repair (100% done)
  • Sub cabinet re-wiring - currently there are some subs wired for pair 1 and some for 2 - we need to get them all equally distributed between the four pairs. (100% done for the 8 subs that we have)
  • Rex/Dex speaker mounting plan (100% done)
  • NL8 speaker cable layout plan (100% done)
  • NL8 speaker cable stripping/screwing/soldering party (100% done)
  • Rack cooling solution - lead by Lowroad
  • Find a PC laptop to run XTA Audiocore - the crossover configuration software
  • Make/buy a crate for all the cables (100% by NasaNich).
  • Load out to the container (100% done - 6 Frogs and 6 Subs loaded onto Cory's container (Astor Playa), and the rest onto the NYC container)
