I’ve been designing and have speaker boxes built overseas for 15+ years. Usually bring in a couple of containers a year. These active wedges I sell are the same I’m using on all of our shows where wedges are requested.
Being a singer, my vocal cut through well but also, the sound was very pleasing. Most of the time a singer doesn’t actually like the sound of his voice. They keep thinking you can fix their brain by adjusting a knob. The FCS15PW will fix a lot of that.
I way overpowered the amp section for a couple reasons. One, more power never hurt me in the past. I’d rather be looking at it, than for it. Two, I’m using the same amp in my 2x12” & 2-2” horn line arrays also my 1X12” x 2” line arrays. Just seemed easier to have one amp for everything.
On the horn itself. Because of all the power available, I requested a 3” – 1.5” exit B&C style horn that will handle 220W continuous power. Combine that horn with the 300 available watts – you can really tear someone’s face off. Most of what I’ll address here is due to deaf performers. My goal was to make a wedge that when the talent says “Check” his next line is, “can you turn that damned thing down?”
Versatile: I had stand mounts put on both sides of the speaker box. The FCS15PW will also work as a stand-alone speaker on a stick. There’s rigging track built in that can be changed to either side of the box and I’ll include a diagram of some hanging ideas and uses for an install.
We have our program loaded into the wedges DSP at the factory. I had two high dollar FOH guys to the warehouse to get consensus on the the DSP programing .Most touring engineers will want a flat box that they can adjust to their performer’s liking. Check the EQ curve below with pink noise.
