Not for the low frequency drivers, not practical (or really possible)
Yeah, so true. I had a GF I dumped way back and she'd go off on me that I liked that song.
Guys, sometimes crap like this happens. It can be part of the show, part of being personable to the audience, part of good audience relations. This kind of thing fortunately doesn't happen very often, and maybe it was worth it???
I had something like this happen, though it was an entirely different scenario. I'm part of an equine theatrical exhibition show, think putting a tour together with people (and horses) from all over the state and doing between 50 and 60 shows on the road. Been doing it for over 25 years. There's music, acrobatics, trick riding and a tribute to cinema all done with riders and horses. Part of what we do is interact with the audience. Many people have never touched a horse in their life, so to be able to pet a horse is a huge thrill (especially the big, fancy ones). One night after the meet & greet, I notice that my horse (almost white) has orange streaks down her shoulder One of the mounted police riders immediately identified it as BBQ sauce which kind of bummed me out until he said I was lucky it wasn't from the blue cotton candy... that s*it stains like there's no tomorrow. Lesson learned, no big deal, I just had a little more "clean-up on isle 3" to do but nobody got hurt (a very real concern in what I do). It's just part of the job, part of the risk of entertaining.
I wonder if the girl had any kids. Maybe she was a member of Drunk Mothers Against Drivers.
I asked my wife. She takes no offense to girl. So is it ok now??
You can't say "uterus" in here! I'm going into shock...
dame = nice gams
Well put, @pcake . I miss the days where "boys" weren't scared of calling "girls." World War I and II the servicemen were referred to as "our boys" and they called their girlfriend/spouses "girls." It was all meant to be highly complimentary.
On a non gender related note, THIS is why I like to have a speaker cabinet that will handle well above what the max RMS of what my amplifier can produce.
I'm always worried about a volume spike from a bad piece of gear, cord, user error, or inebriated bystander.
go with embiggen - it can also be an adjective if you're in a pinch.
User error (me) would be first on my list.
I just want to go on record and thank each and every drunk adult female. You are why we do it. Thank you. Thank you.
And that....my friends ,is just .....sad.
Tapē ýôur sliders next time.. or put kîck guard on thére. speakers äre fragged.
Haha, that's what came to mind for me as well. The only really safe way to play in public, especially if you play like me
When I suggest appropriate power to be used with a speaker, this is in fact something that I do consider. It falls under the combination of "good common sense", and the ability to survive "momentary lapses of good judgement" and "accidents".
Generally, matching the "RMS" power handling of the cabinet to the rated "RMS" power of the amp will greatly improve the odds of surviving such "accidents", as many of the more robust amps can deliver more than 1.5x their rated "RMS" power under such "events".
There's not much of a tradeoff, as most speakers start exhibiting significant power compression at their "RMS" power rating anyway, and another benefit is that the speakers tend to last much longer when considering their overall lifespan.
Curious how those would sound in a cab the size of the PF112hlf. I would think pretty well, huh? Anyone care to venture a stab at it? Andy, you have any idea how it looks on paper?

I am not doing this ever.
