Heya Gang

Was wondering if anybody here has any experience with the dB Technologies Sub-12 bass bins? I've found them online for 299 and was considering purchasing one to partner my Yamaha Stagepas 500 system.

Any experiences?

Hi killyp,
these sub 12's are great only using one at the moment but will be adding another shortly.they give a crisp and punchy sound that you will not be dissapointed with and they are light in weight too! hope this helps.

Thanks! I went ahead and bought it a while ago - there's not exactly much to lose at that price!

It's actually turned out rather good once I get past the run-in period. At first it sounded very harsh, ripe, boomy and vague. Once I'd run it in a bit, and given it a chance to breathe in a larger room, it's actually turned out fantastic. I've used it for an outdoor jazz gig (upright bass with pickups, electric bass and synth, as well as background music) and it did a great job, and produced a surprising amount of noise given it's size, weight and cost.

In smaller venues it's turned out to be a little too top-heavy. It does have bit of a peak towards the top of it's crossover frequency (100 Hz) which gives it quite a bit of punch in larger spaces, but just ends up making it sound overpowering in small spaces.

In large indoor spaces though, it's very good. Musical, controlled and powerful. Sure I've heard d&b subs which are the same size and go louder and deeper, but for it's price, it's honestly incredibly useable. The plan at the moment is to get three more, and an infra-sub for the frequencies the dB can't reach.

Glad to hear you went ahead with the purchase this might help though,i bought a behringer ultragraph pro to equalize everything out at different venues and it does help a lot.like yourself i found them boomy in smaller gigs but the ultragraph has helped,might be something for you to look at!
good luck.

Yeh I've been planning to get a digital EQ at some point, although I think I may be better off upgrading the tops at present, which I find incredibly limiting in terms of volume.
