Sound System

Paul Emery kindly donated this equipment via Paul Castro to the Oddfellows May 31  2019.
These originated from the Center for the Arts.
THANK YOU PAUL-E from Paule & Us All.
There will be a Time I hope where various Members can show up and help test and mount these.
FYI They will need some cleaning as they have been in storage

About 600 pounds of equipment:
2 amps, 2 woofers, two main speakers and the loan of two speaker stands.
Ideally these speakers would have  permanent mounts as they are very heavy to drag around…!

TWO Behringer EP2400 stereo power amps to drive Speakon cables.
One drives the main speaker pair in stereo
The other identical unit drivers the two bass/woofer units
2500 output power (1 kHz, 0.1% THD) per channel stereo:
500 watts RMS @ 8 ohms,
750 watts RMS @ 4 ohms,
1,200 watts @ 2 ohms.
Output power (1 kHz, 0.1% THD)
bridged mono: 1,500 watts RMS @ 8 ohms,
2,400 watts RMS @ 4 ohms.
Weight: 36.6 lbs.

Maximum Sound Pressure Level (SPL) 131dB @ 1m, (!)

The PDF manual for these is HERE
Paul Emery has LENT us two speaker stands for the Mains to test things; Ideally we would bolt these speakers to the wall in a well tested location and not use stands..
The stands are ONLY A LOANER for testing!

Also Needed-
– Paule Emery said he has some “SPEAKON” leads we need yet,
or perhaps get our own,
these are 30 AMP Speaker Power Drive Cables!
two 25″ ones are $25 from Amazon.

– a Mixer to feed the XLR inputs to the power amp
Simplest 4 channel unit with RCA/3.5MM Inputs & XLR outputs to suit this amp is about $60
IE: This on Amazon,

They are at Redneck Heaven now (my home) where I am doing some basic testing. I would love for a few of you to come help load them into the hall where I can drive them from my ‘puter in initial testing
Thank you. And Paul-E.
