I understand this might be tough to answer but Im just looking for opinion. I currently
have a 36" widex 18"high x 30" deep box with 2 x 12" mounted on each side of a 60 degree flair and 2 x
2"B&C drivers mounted one on top of the other at the back of the flair. The idea was
these boxes could be stacked up to 6 high outdoors for a festival style event or could be
stacked on top of the subs as per a normal style trap box setup.
When the boxes were stacked 4 high the worked fairly well but when we went with a bass
bin and mid hi type setup more of a lets get good dispersion 2 x subs 2 x tops x 4 they
were hellish in the upper mid - hi area.
To the point where I would say unusable.
What we are trying to do is have a box that can be used in a line array setup and well as a
trap setup. Being a smaller regional company we cannot dedicate ourselves to either
format we need both.
What I am now proposing after is this.
A box that is 36" wide x 12.25" high x 24" deep with a 12" 10"and 2"on a 60 degree horn.
This will allow me to carry quite a few as per trucking and the drivers will be as close as I
can possibly make them for coupling. With info from Meyers. Tom Danley , Brock Adamson it seems obvious now that true line array can only happen at a few freq. and that similar to your larger box idea getting as many componets packed into the tightest area seems to make sence.
