Discussion in ' Speakers ' started by SubWolfer , Jan 2, Log in or Sign up. Messages: Location: Downriver. I got a pair of Electro Voice PA speakers. Here's the specs. They're model SHER which are horn loaded cabinets with 15" drivers. They're pretty large and heavy. So I was thinking of perhaps a DIY project or maybe just parting them out as I think I'd be able to sell the internals for more than keeping the speakers intact, and shipping would be a lot easier, too.
Still, I'm curious what you guys would suggest. SubWolfer , Jan 2, Messages: 2, Location: South-East England. There's not much usable below 70hz. MunkeyQ , Jan 2, I reckon some DIY cables would be in order then? Could it be that these speakers and my subs would work well in a stereo setup? Messages: Location: Springfield City, Oregon. Add a pair of subs and make a great party system. I would probably find them a home in small scale PA work, but I've seen more shows thrown at an art gallery using a puny guitar amplifier for PA than I care to think about.
Messages: 2, I would use a good amp and let your own ears be the judge. Quite a few of us here on AK use the big pro speakers in our systems. The downside to the pro speakers, are that most come up short in the bass department, the upside, those EV horns are pretty nice, and they are quite efficient as well.
Yep, you need an amplifier. They're passive speakers like any other passive hi-fi speaker, only it's got a jack instead of binding posts.
Jacks aren't used nowadays for speaker level signals as they momentarily short out the amp when inserted or removed, and the contact area is small. Make up a pair of jack to bare wire cables to plug it into your amp and see if you like the sound - if they're going to see use in your hifi, I'd suggest replacing the socket with binding posts. Better contact.
And if you decide that the sound isn't for you and want to sell them on, it's definitely worth replacing the jacks with Speakon sockets to make them more saleable. They're the industry standard for speaker level signal in the pro world. To set them up with you cannot connect the speakers directly to the sub as there's no amplifier to power them. As for the sub, split the output from the preamp with a Y splitter so it feeds the unbalanced input of the subwoofer and the inputs of the power amplifier.
Great advice, thanks. Messages: 16, Location: St. Go outside and crank 'em! Man, thanks as this is very helpful. Some great ideas and sounds like fun. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
