    I have not inspected the Tumults yet, but when I removed the XXX from the box to check out the new dustcap, the frame was cracked in 2 places!!!!!

    I guess I can join the club of UPS carelessness!!! I think this happened to Brian B too. Must be something UPS has against Brian's. . . .

    Hey Brian

    With your luck with speakers, I'd stay out of the casinos....[​IMG]

    Personally, I think it was the driver getting back at you for delivering 3 boxes weighing 70lbs each the same day[​IMG]

    I had to have 5 Blueprint drivers sent to me before I received two that weren't broke. They were shipped Fed Ex ground. I feel your pain.
     
  7. I have had 2 SV-10s, 2 drivers about the weight ot the brahma 12, 2 1503's (well, one was picked up), and a tumult. So far, everything has been tip top. I guess I am just lucky so far! *knocks on wood*

    On a good note, the Tumults are AWESOME!!!

    Each is in a 2.5 ft^3 sealed enclosure with med-heavy stuffing. I am using a QSC PLX3402 on the pair. I have a BFD, but have not tuned yet. Right now, I have bands 1 and 2 set at 20 Hz and 25 Hz (widest bandwidth) @ 6 dB of boost. Then I have bands 11 and 12 set to filter out a little more of the HF that my LFE output does not get. Even in sealed boxes, they make more than enough bass. I have not metered them yet, but the pair seems to keep up with the single 1803 I had in a 13ft^3 ported enclosure, but the sound is MUCH cleaner.

    Brian
