Using a powered sub
Any one doing this? I mocked up a version at home using the line out of my mb200 into a old biamp M2V crossover into BGW power amp into 2 EV tl 15 cabs. Just fed from 80-100 below to the 15,s. Mammy jamma did this sound great. The 2-12 cab runs full range
You got a taste of it then.
Real subs will do a lot more of it than those cabs you used.
They are original TL 606 cabs with the ev 15 L speakers. Port covers on. Had them since 77 - still kick. But i also agree an actual sub would be very potent. Best part is i gig with this 2-12 cab a lot but I wanted a way to amp up for higher volume gigs.
Thinking of a plate amp in the 500 watt range with a 15 eme neo lf. 4 ohm. Ill build another ultralight ported cab for the whole shebang
I use a converted Gale Force 25W 8 inch powered sub and it's perfect for low volume practice eg with acoustic guitars and Cajon percussion - it does what small cheap dedicated bass amps can rarely do - tiny lightweight little box but with a real deep fat bass sound all the way down to the B string.
Yes, adding a sub works great.
It extends a rig immensely.
Add a powered sub in the effects loop, crossover, send lows to sub, and mids highs to current rig.
This is a real interesting plate amp
450W with DSP, $275
That is one of the coolest things i have seen period! I have been looking for even a straight forward version of this fir a while. But these guys have really taken it to the max!
Thanks for sharing that.
Here is a view of the current test rig- 2-12 eminence neo's in a sealed cab - 2 15's in TL606 cabs GK MB200 feeds a Biamp xover - lows out only to BGW amp - into 2-15's
both feeds = 4 ohms. It is simply a monstrous joy!
Got another preamp? You want to put the crossover between that and your amps so the 12's aren't full range. Also stand the 12's up tall.
