Just curious, if you have the 6x12 sub towers why did you choose to only use 3 drivers on each side?

tmazz,

The line arrays will work well in most rooms with two 3x12in's.  I am testing them that way getting ready for RMAF2021 as the ceiling height is limited.

If you are in a room with an 8' ceiling, putting in a 6x12in at 88in tall can be problematic.  My room has 10' ceiling, so no problem with the full stack. 

Another practical reason is that one HX300 servo amp will drive a 3x12 stack.  Go to 4x12 or more and you need two HX300 servo amps per side.  Waiting to hear about the new HX580 amps that are dual HX300's.
