    active 4345's

    Hi all. Can someone help me with running a pair of 4345s through a Behringer DCX 2496? There's only 3 channels but they're 4way. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Okay, but I have no networks. I'm building these from scratch. Using 2441/2390, and 2206.

    Well if that's the case can't you switch the 2496 to mono and purchase a second one to cover the other channel?

    I'm no expert but that response curve looks close to ideal. Not sure I could handle that conversion but I really like the versatility of the Behringer. Did you build your Hypex trio? Roy rebuilt mine with mono switch and balanced input option. Like the Hypex mono kit, they are now distortion cancelling circuits. In mono they put out over 1100 watts each. I've asked him to build me a pair of passives by the seat of his pants. No word on that yet. BTW, a friend of mine is on her way over there for the flower festival. If you see her say hello for me. Her name is Michelle. She'll be riding a bike.

    Regards,
    Peter

    Yeah, it passed my by without notice. It's that time of year here. flower By bike, i think you mean motorcycle?

    That's a suitable amount of power.

    Hypex is pretty straight forward stuff; you buy a power-supply, amp modules of them, some wires and all you need to add is the heatsink. The power supply also has a build in DC protection detection, and a remote on/standby signal.

    here are the heatsinks i'm using;



    This is the mid and high amp, should be ~ 100 watts RMS @ 8 ohm, more than enough for the units i'm using.


    This is a bridged low-amplifier, which is capable of 800 rms@ 8 ohm.


    these are the amps in place in the speakers;

    I can't locate a usable manual for the 2496. Would I then have 6 available channels per 2496? I would much prefer someone build me a pair of networks and bi-amp them. Anyone here you might suggest?

    Very nice. Looks like they could double as mounts for a Harley. The Hypex amps have very good reviews. Not sure I would be pleased with the "forward" character of class D. I have not auditioned any as yet. No, I mean bicycle. I thought that's what everybody got around on over there.

    I'm (was) sceptic to this class-d as well. you normally always hear this typical non analogue sound, (heard a NAD set on an audio-show, didn't know it was class D, i asked the 'showmaster' if it was a class D amp. "Noooo, no class D, don't let the engineers here that", he whispered. "This is a Direct Digital amp" Bingo, was my first reaction.. You could hear it, especially in the higher regions of female voices, like Dido's safe trip home. (good recording, imo) But these hypex amps have got a very friendly/natural behavior.

    Yes, i'm an enthusiastic biker myself, too. (although i have seen quite a few cyclists in Canada as well, who seemed to take it very serious ) Weather here is OK, not too bad. Autumn has just started.

    The hypex amps are fair cheap. They currently reduced the prices on the switching power supplies, you can have an amp now for about 250 dollars. I'm using the higher grade editions for mid/high and the lower models for lows. Even in brdige, they control the woofer with authority.

    Nice build, and with build-in airflow too !!

    Have you tried the new nc400?
    I bought 4 of them for my 2 mains (and probably 2 more in the futur, but still only one powersupply per side), but I am stuck with the build of the case...
    I would like to do something exactly like yours.
    I whish I had your talent! congrats!

    They are the ones I've been referring to. Midrange is apparently outstanding as is bottom end control. What is your take on the top end?
