Funktion One Resolution 2 rental Sacramento

Weight (without wheelboard): 48kg (106lbs)

Danley Sound Labs TH118 Subwoofer

With a 26Hz -10dB point, 105dB sensitivity and peak of 140dB, The TH118XL is a subwoofer that is useful for both indoor and outdoor applications. The tapped horn design takes full advantage of the driver element by doubling its output ability. The result is more volume from less input. Combine that attribute with the high power handling of the driver and you have one of the most powerful subwoofers in the market. In many cases a single TH118XL will take the place of 2 standard 2×18” front loaded cabinets.

We use Danley’s DNA20K4 amplification to power our Danley subs. The 20K4 delivers 5,000 watts per channel into four channels for a stunning 20,000 watts RMS!

Rental System F.A.Q.
How many people will the PA system serve?
  1. Sound system speakers provide sound to a given area at a desired sound level. The more people present, the higher the ambient noise level will be (due to talking etc…)
  2. Our “number of people” estimates are based on the following:
    1. The lower number is for outdoor events with loud music requirements
    2. The high number is for smaller indoor spaces with “pleasant” listening levels
    3. We recommend additional “delay” speakers for large indoor or outdoor spaces
    4. For “very loud” events like indoor school rallies we recommend using our lower estimates
  3. You need more speakers for outdoor events than indoor events
  4. You need more speakers for “loud music” events than soft music or spoken word events
  5. You need more bass for modern dance music and rock, especially outdoors
  6. Larger rooms need more speakers than smaller rooms
  7. Ask us for guidance when placing your order if you have not set up a rental PA speaker system before. Whether live sound, DJ or other application, we are happy to share our 50 years of experience!

More information for “do it yourself” rentals:

How do I set the system up?
System Troubleshooting
There is still no sound!

  • The most common error is forgetting to un-mute the PA2 High or High and Low channels.
  • Are the Speakers plugged in? Turned on (blue light on front LED)? Level on appropriate channel A or B turned up?
  • Is there a good signal cable plugged into the speaker? Is it plugged into a source on the other end (mixer, instrument or microphone)?
  • Are all mixers and processors plugged in? Turned on? Un-muted? Levels appropriate? Do you see a signal?
  • DJ mixer – Do you have a signal? Is the channel turned up? Is it muted? Is the proper sound card assigned (MIDI mixer)? Is filter all the way up or down? Are EQ channels down or muted?
  • Live mixer – Did you assign the channel to “Stereo”? Is the channel gain up?
    • Do you see signal if the channel is “soloed”?
      • No= No source signal – Is the channel muted? Instrument turned on? Mic switch on?
      • Yes = Is the channel muted? Is the Channel fader up? Is the Stereo master fader up?)
  • PA2 – Did you set it up? Are the speaker feed cables plugged into the back in the right spot? Did you un-mute the channels (right side – red lights under “High” “Mid” and “Low” should be OFF

Sounds bad

  • Adjust mixer high, mid and low eq’s to the noon position
  • Adjust mixer filter to the noon position
  • Very low volume from turntable?
    • Make sure mixer has a pre-amp
    • Turn up pre-fader channel gain
  • Turntable hum/rumble?
    • Connect the ground wire properly
    • Move turntable away from speaker or vibration
  • System hum
    • Use “Inverter” type generators only. Non-inverter generators will cause expensive damage to the amps.
    • Use a better power cord
    • Make sure there is no machinery operating on the same circuit your sound is plugged into.
