Club G - Philadelphia

Just getting it up and running as of tonight.

Here's a little tease shot from the Booth:



I have to say the main area, with the combo of Thrive amps, Community tops, EAW tweeter array and 4 horn loaded subs from Shorty, it sounds really good!

I'll post more pics as I take some good shots.

Yeah I like that too, I would like a similar type of thing in my booth.
I love the way Shorty is always pushing 1210's and not sticking them in some dark corner.

Thanks Lee

Everything is finally done and i'll be taking a bunch of photos tomorrow and post them. Place is really beautiful, in every aspect.

sonicanvil: The tops are Ibox 1596's, 15" woofer with a 90x60 horn. Only thing I modified were the EAW tweeter arrays which needed to be rewired for a real world impedence (32 ohm as stock was too high).

Nice work!

What parts did you use for the "patchbay"?
Because i got the same problem in a club, the DJ want his Pio. DJM909 when he is DJing.
And now i planning to build a patchbay, so any advice would be nice.

I have to post some more pics of the internals all finished, I saw in the other thread a comment on my wiring, yet all the work shots were still in progress.

Regarding the patch bay, what I did was wire it up so the turntables are normalled, meaning when nothing is plugged in, the turntable signals pass through the patchbay into the mixer as what usually happens. When you want to use Serato scratch or bypass the mixer, you plug a connection into the patch bay, it breaks the connection and passes the signal out and/or back to the mixer (depending on if it's setup with Serato Scratch and an external mixer, or just Scratch).

I went with traditional 1/4" on the patch bay, instead of bantam which is usually more traditional, just in case someone needed an emergency cable and wouldn't have to go find one of the special bantam connectors to make it work. You can go either way, but if you go bantam make sure the club has plenty of cables to do whatever they might need to do.

That is such a great way of using the patch bay with the tt's! Love it
Have you thought though of runnning the tt's at line level i.e. using external pre-amps then into the patch bay etc?

That patch bay is a pretty cool idea. I hadnt seen one right at the dj mixer before for modern stuff. I thought of building a patch bay with switches to go between scratch amp stuff, but jacks are a lot faster and easier. Do you know if hte connectors are modular, meaning, one could order just the amount of jacks and build their own panels? I'm sure htere is a saving with buying a full unit, but I like the idea of grouping the connections in distinct sections.

Just wanted to clarify that I really liked your wiring - even if it is still in progress. My wiring is nowhere near that level.

What's the difference between 1/4" and Bantam? They look like the same thing to me so what am I missing?

adam, how do you compare the i box series with other community products? Besides a clean look for the install, any other factors for selection? My partner has excellent relations with community, so it is likely a product I will work with this year.
