    We dont bridge as a rule though we stack the speakers when usin a smaller rig.

    got bad feed back probs at the mo so need a x over asap.

    now were arguing weather to buy a mono or sterio x over.

    Most are stereo when used 2 or 3 way (as in Hi/Lo Left and Right or Hi/Mid/Low Left and Right) but if your try and use them 4 way they will only do it in mono so you get Hi/Mid/Bass/Sub but only one channel for each.

    If its just a cheap but effective solution you are after then I’d suggest either the

    Behringer CX3400 (arround £80-100) or the Samson S Class S 3 Way (which can be found for arroudn £130)

    I think he means what is the type of noise that you hear? Is it a buzzing sound, a deep rumble, a static sound, a loud hum? Does it devlop or does it come on instantly?

    Sounds like an earth problem – check all the earthing in all your kit. Since it comes out of both speaker sets I would go for a common piece of kit the two share. The mixer, decks and crossovers if you have any are where I would start checking.

    💡 Do you actually earth your genny? That could be your trouble if you dont.

    Do you use balanced line? if not you could just have rf interference being picked up by your cables [which is why we use balanced line everywhere we can] and sanitising it could be challenging

    If I come up with any more ideas I will post them here

    some times doggy connections/leads can make a hum as well (by dodgy i mean broken)… try swaping around any leads you can to see if that stops it ..(i had a phono lead that used to hum .. changed it and now its fine)

    This is a great idea and will be realy useful. One thing I cant seem to find out is how much a standard rig costs to build. I don’t really know how big a standard rig is so sorry if this is a bit broad, just looking for some idea
