Nearly 10 years ago I bought this cab and had a lot of fine rehearsals and gigs with it. When the band stopped, it remained in a moldy rehearsal room for too long. The two bottom speakers made an awful noise and I took them out.
I'm looking to get this cab resurrected. I just don't know how yet.
1) what is the impedance now I took out half the speakers? 16 ohm or still 8 ohm?
2) obviously playing these 2 drivers in a cabinet that is too big and has 2 extra holes in it will not be ideal. Can I just reduce the volume by half and make the port half surface and it should be ideal or doesn't it work like this?
Can I find 4 8" speakers for a reasonable price that will sound decent in this cab?
I've got a GK MB212 on the way, if I remade this 4*8 it would probably match better than 2*8 though the latter would also be very welcome to play on at home. And who knows, it might be good with the 2*12 as well.
I dunno I'm pretty much a cabinet noob still after all those years. I've been pondering for nearly a week which cabinet I was going to get, looked at all <300€ ones mostly the ashdown and peavey 210 and 115, kustom 410, gk 212. I finally decided to get the peavey 210 with the thought of maybe adding a 115 or another 210 later when I saw it was rated at 4 ohms.
I am happy I got the 212 in the end it seems like a fine cab for the money, low weight may prove very handy and it may be all I ever need in rehearsal and small gigs, bigger would me miked anyway... But now I'm already gassing to get this x*8 back up and running and planning to make myself a 115, 118 or 215 cabinet in the near future
