Which Sub for iQ15

Contributor - Level 2
hello.. I use the iQ15s for my mains and am realizing I need subs for certain venues.. is there a best practice combination? i.e. 12s with 15 subs or 15s with 18 subs.. or does Turbosound say that any combinations will be fine? I do have a couple iQ12s I use for monitors that I could use as mains instead of the iQ15s.. in any case thanks in advance for any advice or info. ~Bobby

p.s. edit: I want to stay with the iQ series.. I really love the Cat5 connection feature.

The dsp in the iq-series has presets for either/or so it ought to sound comparable.

I’ve not listened to the iq18b but I’m very happy with my iq15b/iq12 combo and for me the smaller box is a better option when moving and storing them. The only complaint I’ve been given about the iq15b subs was that it was too loud Smiley Tongue.

thank you Robert for your reply.. I am with you regarding moving and storage.. the 20lb difference is definitely a consideration.. so my configuration would likely be the iQ15 with iQ15B.. and would keep my iQ12s for the floor monitors. cheers!

Give it a try as I’d rather use the iq12 as tops.

Instead use the iq15 when you run a show without any subs...

in the majority of our gigs I need floor monitors.. so if the 12 full range top/15 sub bottom combo sounds best I would have to use my full range 15s for the floor.. which though they're bigger and take up more room should not be a problem.

I'm using the IQ18B's and its the best system I've used.
