    Great system but it must really rip your head off in that room!

    Can you get some bulk absorption in there. Shove 100mm acoustic foam in between the rafters at least (maybe there is already something there out of shot)?

    Does the rotating beacon on the ceiling come on when the SPL is too high?

    so, do you like that Marchand (it is a marchand xm44, right?) better than the Bryston 10B for the full range crossover?



    how about a little talk on the THRIVE amplifiers and other electronics you are designing, building & using?

    Same question for the custom cabinets?




    Is there a link or something where we can read all about them and how they perform technically?

    going to do this.

    i had a client over today to demo my system & our products, after hearing this system he will be purchasing SBS & Thrive Audio products, he was blown away by it. He kept sayin how he swore the band was rt there infront of him playing when he would close his eyes. We demoed Opera,Clasical, Big Band, Jazz, Gospel, R & B , Dance, basicly anything we could throw at it to see what it would sound like and it all was amazing.

    He couldn`t believe the dynamics of this system and the flexibility of it, no matter what you played on it, he comented many times how full it was at any level, from very low to medium levels, and very loud levels aswell & we got no aural fatigue. He had said he couldnt believe after 4 hrs of listening to music on such a large system his ears were not ringing & kept sayin how clean it sounded.

    But I missed a FedEx delivery on product for a different client because i didn`t hear the bell ring lol, Needless to say, I had to go to Fed Ex early this evening to pic it up because of this, oh well it was worth it lol.

    I never thought about wiring up a light but its a great idea and i am going to do this. Thx

    have you noticed any resonances due to the parallel
    walls used in the FBH 115T construction?

    Parallel walls creates resonances which absorb power
    from the horn's output if it falls inside the horn's
    operating band, creating a notch in the frequency response.

    Additional resonances would occur at odd multiples of this
    frequency (1, 3, 5, etc.). This would indicate that to go higher
    in frequency using a horn with parallel side walls, one would
    need a narrower horn (consider the popular Lowther-style rear-loaded horns).
    or is that only applicable to folded or bent horns?

    A SBS re engineered & reworking Marchand series xover. There is nothing stock about this unit at all but the circuit board & Chasis.
    This is custom built to my spec from scratch. All the Pots & every part on the board was custom ordered, applied & tailored to SBS spec. This Variation of this xover is only sold with SBS Sound Systems aswell.

    I love this SBS version of the Marchand xover, its in my system rt ?.

    What would you like to know about our amps & processing?, are you interested in purchasing our product ?

    as for this question you asked,

    have you noticed any resonances due to the parallel walls used in the FBH 115T construction?

    No not at all, the way this box is designed i dont have these issues. It is a incredible cabinet design, I have played everything from Opera,jazz, big band, rock, R & B, Disco, Funk soul, to Electronica, the TAD 1601B works incredible in this horn its dead clean & gets down low.

    thanks for the response, interesting...

    i hear those Marchand units are very customizable, from slopes used to everything else... did you go with the 18db/oct slopes?

    anyway, i hear the company is nice to work with....



    regarding the Thrive amps just looking for a general run down of the topology used in the Amps and power ratings.... maybe some response curves if you all had run them...

    are they Mosfet? Direct Coupled?

    you never know Shorty, about who your potential client base is.....

    i sure didn't see myself having TAD woofers/2440s & large slant lens plates,
    076s and a slew of bullets a few years ago...

    but here i am with just that....


    so who knows, maybe i will be able to afford the highest of the high end at some point soon....

    also, while wer're talking old style nyc sound....
    have you heard of DJ crossovers by a guy named Mike Conacchio - I think he owns/runs Sound Environments out of Brick NJ -- His crossover is somewhat simmilar to the RLA line, but he uses shallower slopes in the full range.... do you have any thoughts on his products?

    I've been using a few of his crossovers, and i must admit, i am quite fond of the shallower slopes he uses in the full range...
