Mobile DJ Trade Tips - Issue 64 - The AMPdj Spring Competition

Win a Pair of LD Systems Active Speakers...

Would you like the chance to win a pair of quality 12” powered speakers?

I had the pleasure of road testing a pair of the Stinger 12 A G2 powered speakers from LD Systems. These active cabs retail at around £450 each and we have a pair to give away to one lucky person.

LD SystemsThey are advertised as affordable quality multifunctional speakers. As for the latter, they are definitely very versatile babies and have a rightful place in both the mobile DJ world and the band circuit.

If you like a strong thumpy bass, you will love these speakers. The (black coated) plywood cabinet is probably partly responsible for this wholesome, warm full sound. If I’m perfectly honest, the sound far outweighs the very reasonable price tag.

These full range speakers have an inbuilt class D power amp with an output of 400W RMS and 118dB SPL max. Matching subs are also available to complete the set. The 2 band EQ gives further opportunity to adjust the sound to get the best out of them along with additional gain and volume (all adjusted from the rear of the cabinet).

They are certainly not short of a meaty thump without the addition of a sub. This makes them ideal for the wide range of music played by a mobile disco as well as live music from a soloist to a 4 or 5 piece band. They also make superb monitors too and are shaped to lie on the floor at the perfect angle.

The combination ‘line in’ allows for both connection with an xlr or jack. With the unusual addition of line out via speakon, they can be daisy chained to passive speakers for even greater impact especially when playing in a larger venue.

If that isn’t versatile enough, they are also an excellent PA. The mic input means that you don’t have to set up a full rig with mixer as you can just plug them into the power, connect a mic (using XLR or Jack) and away you go. For mobile DJs who do small venue quiz nights, just one of these cabs would be perfect.

The 36mm mounting top hat is also adjustable and, when placed on speaker poles, the cab can be angled up or down by 14 degrees. The unique side handles are designed so that you can safely and firmly grab it from different angles.

To have a listen to the Stingers and judge for yourself, visit one of the many dealers which can be found here www.ld-systems.com/en/dealer-search/ The exact specs can also be viewed on this site too. Be prepared to be blown away!
