Best budget double 18 subs you can buy

These subs are excellent I mean really excellent Ive been in the sound game for more than 25 years and heard a lot of subs and for their price nothing beats these I used also own sound systems I had peavey and JBL before and these are miles better than the Peavey subs and easily as good as my old JBL SRX728 subs The SRX have more spl output due to the drivers suffering from lower power comrpession and having a higher xmax but for their price these subs are brilliant They actually gave lower sub bass than my old SRX728 subs these Wharfedales give bass you can feel in the middle of your stomach whereas the SRX728 you can feel the sub bass in the upper part of your stomach This means the Wharfedales are capable of going lower down into the frequency rangernrnI have four of these dual 18 beasts and I power mine with two QSC RMX4050HD amps now thats only giving each sub 1400 watts continuous average power RMS to the lamen but these things can handle 2000 watts continuous average power if the signal is kept clean and not clipped rnrnThey dont make these subs anymore which I think is a mistake on Wharfedales part because theyre excellent but if you can find some in stock anywhere buy them theyre brilliant

Best sounding dual 15 Horn full range cabs ive heard at this price

Well ive been a sound engineer since 1994 and heard a lot of pa over that time ive owned quite a bit too from JBL Peavey EV and now Wharfedale and I can say these are the best soundin dual 15 full range speakers ive ever heard for this price The midrange clarity is excellent so vocals sounds great most dual 15 cabs due to have 15 drivers sound less than great in the vocal range so I was shocked to hear these at this price sound so good rnrnThe high frequency is also excellent its so smooth and not a hint of harshness at all I used to have some Peavey UL215H cans and my god that compression driver torn your ears to pieces I will say these Delta 215 cabs arent actually very loud to be honest but they soound exellent I power my pair with a QSC RMX4050HD giving each cab 1400 watts continuous average power RMS to the lamen I just wanna say RMS is an electrical term not a speaker power term the reason why manufacturers always used RMS is because its easier for customers to understand rnrnBut anyway power these with a good quality amp and youll be surprised how good they sound

Excellent speakers one of the best for their price

Ive been into sound equipment and worked as an amateur sound engineer for more than two decades and have heard a hell of a lot of cheap speaker cabs These are without a doubt the best sounding cheap speaker cabs ive heard Ive owned a lot of pa myself from Peavey to JBL to EV and for sound quality these are truly fantastic I power mine with a QSC RMX4050HD amp giving each cab about 800 watts continuous average power what the lamen call RMS I think if you powered them with a cheap piece of rubbish amp then they might sound ok but get a decent amp and they sound brilliant

No cable is worth that price

I've been a dj since 1993 and used to be a professional sound engineer as well I also had my own recording studio and produced dance music. I've had many cables before and tried out very expensive cables and also cheap ones and Van Damme cables were as always good and sometimes better than the VERY expensive cables. The best ones in my opinion are Van Damme cables they're not that expensive and even Abbey Road Studios use Van Damme, these Pioneer cables are MASSIVELY overpriced so don't think for a second they're even worth half that price because they're not.

Great mixer with awesome sound quality but rubbish crossfade curves

Well I bought this mixer from another store because it was cheaper, I did do a price match on this site but this site didn't completely match the price so I continued and bought it from another site/shop. Anyway mixer, well it has excellent sound quality and the faders feel lovely, the headphone output isn't as good sound quality as on a Pioneer DJM250 I also have. The effects on the PX5 are mediocre to be fair, I used to have a Denon DN-X1600 a few years back and the effects on that were way better. The USB functionality of the PX5 is terrible because I still can't get Traktor Scratch to work properly with it, i've set everything up properly and double checked cables and buttons and i've been using Traktor Scratch for about 6 years now so I know exactly how to set that up. But the scratch function in Traktor Scratch is disabled and after much emailing Allen & Heath and them replying they've been unable to help me and have blamed Traktor for the problem. I'd say unless you can see it working with Traktor Scratch in a shop it's a bad idea to buy the PX5 for that. Another thing I hate is the fact that the master vu meters change to cue vu meters when you press a channel cue button. This is stupid to be and pointless to be honest seeing as the mixer already has vu meters on every channel. Also adjusting the master gain control (when no channel cue button is pressed) doesn't make the master gain vu meters change at all. This is bad because it doesn't tell you if the master outputs are being clipped or not. Now the headline, the crossfade curves, well the left hand mixing curve is useless as when you slide the crossfade into the middle the sound level drops A LOT!!! I know mixing curves have to have a dip in the middle but come on not that much it's like half the voume. The middle curve is very different, if you slide into the middle for the first say 6mm or so there's nothing then SUDDENLY it fades in fast and then you have about 25mm or something in the middle where the sound doesn't change. Then as you get near the opposite side it SUDDENLY fades out fast. You have to litterally fade in and out as slow as you can to get anywhere near remotely smooth fades. Both those curves are unusable in my opinion. The sharp curve has dead space as either side for about 4mm and then BANG sound comes in, I got round this by taking the crossfade out and bending two little metal bits on the crossfade and now the sound comes fully in after about 1mm from the side. Overall it's a lovely mixer with a few things that Allen & Heath should of known better than to implement but if you can live with those problems then it's a great mixer.

Excellent speaker for the price

What a fantastic speaker for the price, it's quite loud too definately loud enough for most people for small parties, I stood about 2 feet away from it's grille while me and my girlfriend were testing it out and it got loud enough that I had to shout loud for my girlfriend to hear me at all. FBT are top quality speakers I knew this from the start anyway, the sound quality is fantastic, the different DSP settings are excellent, on the 'Club' setting the speaker really does give out some lovely bass. I have it set to 'Floor/Vocal' when using it at hom as it gives awesome sound quality in the vital midrange and doesn't give much bass at all so not to annoy my neighbours because I also use it in my one bedroom flat as a dj monitor, lol. When using it live i'll use the 'Original/Live' setting as it gives an excellent compromise between midrange sound quality and bass. Overall this speaker is fantastic for the price and i'll be buying a second one soon.

Excellent, better than Ortofon for definate

These are some of the best cartridges you can get for sound quality and also for being able to hold the groove without the needle jumping. I've had so many different Ortofon cartridges before like the Scratch, DJ S, Pro S, you name it and these M44G cartridges beat them all for sound quality. Also they last much, much longer before they need replacing than Ortofon.

Great little mixer

It's a great little mixer, the crossfade curve on it's sharpest setting isn't great for scratching but it's not bad, sound quality wise it's good for the price. I can't see sound quality being much better at this price, headphone amplifier output is weak, at home I have the knob about half way so if you were to use this mixer for a party or a small dance event etc...with loud music you'd definately need a headphone amplifier.

Great stylus

These stylus and the cartridges they go on are fantastic. I used to have a recording studio years ago and used to use Ortofon, I always liked them but as soon as I tried the Shure M44G cartridges and these stylus I realised that the only Ortofon cartridges that are as good sound quality as the Shure are the Orttofon Nightclub E and they're MASSIVELY expensive. Another thing i've noticed too is that the Shure M44G cartriges last longer, MUCH, MUCH longer. I had to replace the Ortofon cartridges about every 2 or 3 months of 3-5 hours a day use wheras i've been using the Shure M44G cartridges now for years and they seem to last about 8 months of 3-5 hours a day use. The stylus are even better, I used to have replace Ortofon stylus after about 6 weeks because i'm a scratch dj, the Shure M44G stylus last about 6 or 7 months. I know most people prefer the Ortofon but I think it's probably because they do look nicer on your decks, but sound quality and how long they last Shure are much better.

Pretty damn good

I heard a pair of these along with a pair of the 600 watt subs and the system sounded pretty damn good. It was run on a poor quality American Audio power amplifier which gives only 800 watts rms per channel into 4 ohms, so the guys weren't giving the system much in the way of a chance to shine, and also they were underpowering the system. But, anyway, the subs had a pretty damn good sound, especially for this price range. Loudness wise, they were damn good. The sound quality was pretty damn good. The sound was clean, clear and didn't hurt your ears at all, even when pushed by the guys demo'ing them to me. I'm definately a believer in Celestion. I think running 2 of these on a bridged QSC RMX-1850 amplifier (available very cheap 2nd hand) would sound fantastic. I've been a sound engineer for years now and so have set up quite a few systems and heard loads of systems. These speakers are definately worth the money, and seeing as they were driven by a cheap, crappy American Audio amplifier, sounded good. If you drive them with a decent amplifier like a QSC (you can pick them up cheap 2nd hand), the sound quality wouldn't pretty excellent, and better than ANYTHING in this price point. I'd have to say, that if driven with a Crown or QSC amplifier, it'd probably be accurate to say that they'd sound as good as JBL's MRX-515 2- way speakers. Celestion have always been excellent for sound quality. These speakers do get pretty loud, but not what i'd call amazing. They'd keep up with the MRX-515 speakers to a point. Anyway, if you're looking for a cheap set of speakers that will sound as good as you can afford, then being a sound engineer, I highly reccomend these.
