It was NOT a very good system but was somewhat popular because you had everything in one package except for the microphones, cables and stands.
ARe you doing a retro act from the late 60's or 70's and want to have that "sound" just wondering!!!
I'm afraid this might be like looking up a high school girlfriend on Facebook.
You're better of with the pleasant 40 year-old memory than the harsh present-day reality.
I remember a promo brochure from Shure featuring the Fifth Dimension; they were some kind of sponsored artistic act for the brand & speakers. I think they had two columns PER SIDE for their big gigs in Vegas. (!!!!)
I too upgraded from them to a Kustom 200 PA system. In hindsight, that wasn't much better, but at least the Kustom gear didn't have such horrible in/out & lo-cut switches that stopped working the moment cigarette smoke and dust got inside of them. (They weren't sealed, actually!)
Hoooboy.... memories....the kind that makes you shudder. :roll:
hehe, you all couldn't resist reminiscing with The Little River Band over the old days. The knobs were bigger than the sound of these old classics. All I remember is the smokey smell that I thought was what electronics smelt like.
You've got our attention soundenhancer. Share?
I used to have horn loaded bass bins and finally tossed them, bought pro front loaded cab's loaded them with JBL's and stacked a bunch of Bryston's and Crown amps to them am WHAM! Sweet sound finally... that's when I really started learning about sound. My PA sound was way cleaner. I kept adding more to each side as I could afford it.
The horn loaded bass bins were loud but had a really overwhelming standing wave at 125k. Their selling feature was how loud they were compared to front loaded.
soundenhancer, does this concept create a similar 125k 250k ... boost from the enclosures tuning, thus, messing with the flat sound of your guitar amp?
Cool idea. I want one to try.
Yeah Dave, but now it's new and improved through the magic of Space-Age Polymers!
Check this out guys.
Okay, back to the PA and what you want to do with it?
You and I as well as every one knows that this is the product of gettin your link exposed to millions other people.
And YEaH to PolYmerS...
Who doesnt like polymers in the right places!!!???
Sadly, they are closing the door. So, it makes no difference. The last of their stock is available on ebay.
Looked like a pretty cool product. Has anyone heard these?
