Panning hard right diminished the main centre drastically - ... quietening due to phase reversal.


That's the badger.

Totally agree on the cross over issue. I'll be using a cheap crossover with the LD88 and to bleed off the low end before the signal gets to the CPS.

It's just the Denon is a sledge hammer to crack a walnut whereas the LD is a bit more portable and so much more liable to get used out and about.

If anyone wants a mint Denon Axis 12S for £250....

Tempting, but the Behringer B1200d is small and lighter and reportedly goes well with the SS.

I had a Behringer briefly before the Denon - sadly didn't work so sent it back to Amazon. Build quality is a world apart with the Denon and it would kick the Behringer out the door and down the street in terms of SPL but in reality, they're both well and truly overkill for the CPS!

I ran the two together last night with may Vax acoustic, FTP into ipad running Sampletank and iM1 plus Tonestack. Ludicrous amount of tone/sound from that package - you know when you just keep playing because it sounds so good, you can't help it.

Heartily recommend the Blue phaser Electric piano on Sampletank mixed with the Soniksynth Suitcase Chorus EP - shows of the CPS effect brilliantly. Funny thing is on the gig we did last week we played Peter Greens Need your love so bad and I was playing solely that combo of electric pianos via the Vax acoustic and no one batted an eyelid! Even a bloody electric piano break - no reaction! I was like - does no one realise what's actually happening here, lol!

The LD88A sub has arrived  - lightweight, compact and perfect punch partner for the CPS

This will definitely go out with me. It's the perfect sub for the CPS. the only drawback is the sub out on the CPS is low output so ideally the sub needs a different feed but using a cheap 2 way crossover pre: CPS will solve the problem.

So, I just got the Behringer B1200d-Pro subwoofer to complement my CPS SS v3. Mine works -I guess I'm one of the lucky ones!
It's not the smoothest, cleanest sub in the world, especially compared with the Genelec sub in my studio system. And it took a while playing with test tones and such to dial it in. But with the stereo signal going to the sub and the filtered outputs going to the CPS it really is worth while.
The system goes louder, cleaner, with better bass, while maintaining the immense 3D sound field characteristic of the CPS. Smash and ASBs ambient VG99 patches and this speaker system is a perfect match.

I have the LD 88A sub and agree totally - having a sub makes a world of difference!

Well I sold the CPS - when I finally got into rehearsal room against full band it simply didn't cut through for the guitar tones. So Elantric - you were right all along.

I now have a pair of Yamaha DXR10s... much easier to program for as what I hear on home monitors is what I hear from the DXR's plus they will stomp over anything

I don't think it's necessarily a power problem - if you play a CD through it it's very obviously not a flat response so expect to re eq your patches for band situation. Keys are definitely where it shines

Finally got around to reading this thread. I have been using the "Aspen Pittman Designs Spacestation V.3 - 280W Stereo Monitor" from Sweetwater for over a year. I have never run it over 1/2 volume or it takes out the rest of the band. Being in Florida most of the gigs are outside and you get unbelievable stereo separation on stage and in the audience. I am pushing it with a Boss GP-10 and a Roland GR-55 connected together using the GKPX-14F from Robert at Primova. http://www.primovasound.com/  Aspen Pittman Designs have come out with a brand new unit the Aspen Pittman Designs Spacestation XL - 700W 12" Full Range Stereo Monitor but for me the smaller unit has plenty of volume and bottom end (you can run a dedicated sub with them for more bottom). People tell me at gigs and most are players, that it sounds very true to the original when I jump from a Fender to a Marshall etc. When playing pipe organ from the GR-55 thru it the stereo spread is amazing, guitar with chorus and delay are as if you have headphones on (even more so with a little herb, hey what can I say I grew up in Florida...) I tried multiple setups using two amps and or pa systems but there is no comparison, the whole venue hears the stereo spatial spread AND you don't need to play as loud because the design spreads the sonic waves throughout the room. Playing the 12 string settings with a chorus is an amazing sound a lot like Tom Petty on his Rick's 12 string model. Try it, the combination of sound, lite weight and only two wires to plug in it cannot be beat and it comes with a cover... what a deal!

Glad it works for you. Simply didn't cut through against a medium power drummer (ex The Enid) I was constantly being told I couldn't be heard by the band.

Anyone going to try it make sure there's a returns deal.
