I have to chuckle every time I see things like this. I am probably one of the oldest WAVE members and I know they have been doing this for a while but I remember back in the early 1970s visiting a club that was installed by SERVICO Corporation that had one of the most unbelievable sound systems at the time. Its system was composed of massive Klipsh and Electro Voice speaker cabinets and was powered by the largest original Crest and Crown amplifiers available. Where am I going with this is. The secret to the dance floor sounding so alive was 32 small down aimed tweeters hanging from wires. The boom and mid range hit you in the chest but the high end frequency was all around you. The effect was awesome on the dance floor and I am surprise that I have never seen any installers do this since then. So now they box up a better high end driver in a cabinet aimed in different directions to achieve a similar result. A new idea it is not but the sound result in the end is probable similar.

I’m not sure what we’re looking at in this pic, it’s dark as hell, shot at a weird angle, and I don’t know what stage of the install it is. I see a few things you might be referring to... if that’s one level of staging... the under balcony box’s may be too close; no safety cable on the moving head; exposed romex on the truss; and while I don’t know what the goal is with the bullet box (usually better aimed downward), it looks like it’s hanging at 4' off the ground. With that said... what are we looking at?

Sorry been away for a few days. Local philly guy I guess got inspired by my last system with tweeter arrays. Looks like he got a pair of phazon style boxes but didnt understand that box was designed for slots with the wider horizontal dispersion angles.

how do the "4 driver, 90 degree offset -- tweeter arrays" differ when a slot or bullet is chosen as the intended driver --
from a physical layout perspective?

I am aware of the different xover points some folks choose based on installer preference/tonality desired....
but I'm just not comprehending the difference between deploying slots or bullets in this sort of contraption this morning.....

The slots have a 140 wide dispersion angle while the bullets are conical leading to a square tweeter array box.

If you

consider the degree of this array a bullet will work fine in this config,obviously the slot works amazing in this array, but there is nothing wrong with using a Bullet if you cannot source slots, would you say stacking 1 slot or Bi radial directly above another is wrong as well?

Not any more wrong then basing an "original" line of products off of plans acquired from some other company.

to me, the RLA style Z-array components were basically in a box shaped layout...
(granted it was a PVC "cross tee" fittings originally...
but the layout of the Z-array is in a square shape, basically)

guess i'm lame/slow today....


hope all is well for all of you professional installers....
