What type of sub do i add to small Yamaha PA system
#1040453 - 29/03/13 06:06 PM
Hello All, I have a small PA system made of Yamaha EMX 5016F powered mixer, a pair
of Yamaha S115V 2 way club SRS speakers and a pair of Yamaha SM 115V club series monitors.
I want to add some subs and need advise on type and model of subs (18"??) that will
compliment my existing small system.

You could consider one or two Club series SW118V subs, you'll need a power amp and
crossover though. The other alternative is a single or a pair of active subs (so no amp or
crossover needed) Alto Truesonic do both a 15" and an 18" active sub for around £250.
You'll probably find the 15 is great unless you are wanting huge amounts of sub-bass for
dance music. The Thomann own brand subs seem to have a decent rep too though I have no
personal experience if them.
In reply to point two, I use an active 115 sub
(EV SA850) with passive 115H tops. It's no problem except you need to run signal cables to
the sub and back to the power amps in the desk (unless you use the built in amps for
monitors and use a separate power amp for the tops which can sit next to the sub).
