Shreaded tweet!

Soooo: Check the damage to these speaker cones??? ( Sorry bout the blurry pics, I was using my camera phone )




Our sat night DJ/promoter ain't just blown them... He's completely fukin decimated them???

And then some?

I replaced the poor buggers yesterday afternoon and I couldn't actually believe the damage he'd caused coz he refuses to turn the rig down to a sensible level??? Wrong is not a strong enough word. Not only had he blown the cones but the pressure had been so high in the cabinets that the plastic domes protecting the back of the speakers from bass updraft were completely disintegrated as well?

They've been sent off to Martin Audio for analysis. Pretty clear to me really... they're totally fucked!!

I'm a little concerned as I'm off to Istanbul with the band over the weekend, so I won't be there to monitor the DJ and... the new speakers need a period of running in!!

I'm sending my mate D in to cover at the venue with strict instructions to basically batter this guy if he takes the piss.

I really have had enough of him.

Jeez Louise I mean... what do you have to do to get DJ's to keep rigs out of the fukin red???

It's not like, rocket science or anything?

I hate myself for actually doing this, but I've ordered a full-on battle hardened system limiter. I'm really not a fan of these things, I personally think that they colour the sound but I really ain't got a choice. They're not cheap either?

You gotta do what you gotta do though I guess?

The pictures are going on the venue wall of shame... Along with that bloody DJ.

Anyway enough on this subject, it's starting to bore me.

Handy ( I guess ) if you ever get stuck in an F-16

Chomp chomp chomp!!

Those pics need a nice frame with the DJ mug along side. Or better yet, if you can get the speakers back from the lab when they are done, stick em in a shadowbox. Then again, maybe that's a bit much to be spending on and idiot.

Never did like Strats much, although I guess I could be persuaded by that one.. I've a couple of speakers not as badly wrecked as that in a 4x12; they add a distinctive colour to the sound.

Tell you what. Let's secure your DJ with an 18" cabs each side of his head, and show him the meaning of drum (bang bang bang) and bass (slap slap slap) - poetic justice?

As sound engineers say, the DJ's the twat in the corner. Never let a DJ near your rig without a fast limiter between him and you or a shotgun up his arse
