    I have a Schro 1212 which I love. Soon I plan on adding a 2nd Schro. I was pretty much set on a 410 (based on another thread) but I am also thinking of a 2nd 1212. Which set up would be louder? I will be using a Peavey max 700 at 2 ohms (700 watts).
    I'm in a loud Alernative rock band..Think Foo Fighters+Dredg+Godsmack all mixed into one.

    Your thoughts?

    If you love the 1212, I'd stick with it. It will sound like.... your 1212 only a lot louder... a lot louder!
  3. It seems to me that the 1212 plus a 410 might be louder than 2 1212's.But I went with a 1212 plus a 1210.It is verrrrryyyy loud!!! I think it's gonna be up to your own personal taste.I love the low end rumble.Do you have the option of trying different Schroder cab combinations out? I live in Nashville,so one of the Schroder dealers is here in town.It always helps to try out gear before you buy.But with small companies like Schroder,sadly that's not always possible.Really if you like your one Schroder cab,I'm pretty sure you'd be happy with either the 1212 or 410.Are you thinking about the regular weight speakers or the light weight neo(sp?) ones?

    Good luck!

    I'll second that. The 1210 + 1212 is a great rig! Plenty loud!!!

    I'll....third that. Love how the 1212 and 1210 compliment one another. Though I rarely need both its nice to have the option :)

    But the 1210 output is rated lower than the other models you mentioned, so if its volume you're after go with the 1212 or 410.

    The closest Schro dealer is 2 1/2 hrs away from me, so its not like I can drive accross town to take a look. I am probably gonna get the regular weight schro, its cheaper than the light and sounds just as good.

    Hey Spector-Just my .02 01...when I ABed a 410 and a 1210,the 410 was significantly louder(so I got it)! .01...If you do get a 410 plus your 1212,to get the maximum volume from it you may need a bigger head (remember,the 410 handles 1400 watts) to really get these speakers to "bloom"...even though the speakers are very efficient,that is,loud even at lower wattage inputs. Make sure your watts/ohms match up on your amp and cabs as I'm not sure how many ohms your current cab is and am unfamiliar with the Peavy 700...is it capable of producing 700 watts at 4 0hms,can it go to 2 ohms or what are the specs?...(I just looked it up-450W at 4 ohms,700W at 2 ohms-that means you'd need both to be 4 ohm cabs) ...it definately would be loud...but it would be really :hyper: interesting to see what it sounded like with a 1000-1200 watt amp! Peace...DAcat...:cool:

    The Max 700 does 700W at 2 ohm so you would need two 4 ohm cabs to get it's max output.
