810+215

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Metallkasten, Jul 13, 2003.


  1. What would it sound like if you put an ampeg 215 on it's side and put an ampeg 810 on it's side on top of that? Just curious. and put, say, 2 or 3 kilowatts into it
     
  2. With a good preamp through the 2-3KW poweramp, I'd say it'd be kickass...But that's just me:D

    Naw, 118+215. That'd be cooler. Well, to me, anyway.

    It'd be called the 'Deaf-o-matic'. :p

    What would it sound like?

    Hmm, how do I describe the sound of one crapping his pants?

    I run a 2x15 next to a 6x10 and it sometimes makes me feel like a fighter pilot pulling serious G's when I face it.:D
     
  12. I was using a 8x10 + 215 rig. It was newer Sunn gear. (2) 4x10's and 1 2x15. This system rocked. It would seriously cause things to fall off the walls. My drummer loved it, the 2 guitarists hated it. :D Unfortunetly my back didn't appreciate this rig either. And these cabs are fairly light (compared to similar Ampeg gear) I have since downsized, but I miss the sound (ok the look too) of that huge stack. As far as the "brown note", hmm I dunno, there were alot of people using the bathrooms that night. :D

    The sheer low end that setup would emit would assuredly cause my innards to involuntarily make my underwear squidgy . . .

    Hunter from AFI used an 8x10 and 2x15 setup on their new Cd. Go to their website www.afireinside.net and click features at the top and under there you will find in the studio. Go down to bass tracking to hear him talk about it.
     
  15. When we set up on a stage I lay the Ampeg 215 on its side, with a Ampeg 410 on top, sounds incredible, i think the 215 sounds better laying down on the side (but it could be just in my head) it nice because it raises the 410's off the floor as well. I would like to add another 410 to my rig as well, dont need it, but it would look mean as hell, and if i ever play at a airport landing field it would be nice to have a little extra to drown out the jets. There is just somthing about standing in front of a big stack that gets me going.

    I saw some Fender ad stuff at Sam Ash with the bassist having a pair of 2x15s on their sides laying end to end with a pair of 8x10s on their sides laying end to end on top of the 2x15s...looked cool. Nothing like a 4 foot tall, 8 foot wide wall of speakers behind you!!!

    I use 2x15 & a 2x18 cab presently, heavy as hell & space consuming BUT with my DBX Sub Synth on the 18's, it's CRUSHING...
