    Hey guys,

    Out of curiourisity… have you guys ever seen this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKIye4RZ-5k. What do you think, could this in conjunction with e.g. https://www.thomann.de/be/the_tamp_e400.htm or https://www.thomann.de/be/behringer_a800.htm be used as v-drums amplification?

    Why would or would this not work? What is the main reason you shouldn't use hi-fi equipment to power e-drums? Something to do with peak power? So I guess that wouldn't be an issue here since one is using PA-amps. Or am I missing something?

    Curious to hear your thoughts and ideas.

    I see no reason not to use at home although they probably don’t have have much slam without a sub. Saying that the larger the panel the more bass. I’m not sure how loud these go or how practical it would be to use at a gig. I know wharfedale made a speaker like this so you had pictures on the wall and with a small sub. The quality was ok but lacked a sweet high end. Interesting though but hard to tell from an echoing room in the video the real sound quality

      Well, at first sight this looks interesting to me for home use. Apparently, they go loud, I assume this all comes down to what amp you use, and how many exciters, no?

      Do you think you could use a sub like this for use with e-drums: https://www.parts-express.com/dayton...oofer--300-628, or wouldn't that be powerful enough?

      Curious to hear more opinions on this…

        It depends on the room size and how loud you want to go. At home I get a decent level through genelec 1029 powered monitors and an M-Audio sbx10 which I got 2nd hand for 90. The sub you showed is only 100watts but could be enough if your in a small room. I did use my monitor audio sub for a bit but the cones were hitting the end. The M-Audio sub is fine and can go really loud. This is just home use though in a fairly small room and being close to the speakers.

          Well, for home use I've been thinking about studio monitors as well in the past. Never really got to buy a system for home use, especially since the last few years, I play way too little at home. I was just thinking about this exciter-system because a) it looks very interesting, and b) the studio monitors I checked a long, distant past were the Adam Audio A7's, now longtime replaced by A7X. But those in combination with a matching sub would be "fairly" costly https://www.sweetwater.com/store/det...monitor-system. I don't really have a chance to test anything out nearby, but I assume that would be the direction to go if one wants headphone sound from speakers. Although I think the exciter-system "could" deliver similar results.

          If anyone else wants to chime in, share thoughts, please do so! I'm thinking out loud here, thinking that this might be useful information for others too...
