Hey, i was just windering if anyone knew of amps designed for octaved bass ann stuff like that?
There are some amps that have subharmonic synthesizers built into them but these are just pure amplifiers - they do not have an instrument pre-amp. Is this what you are asking about ?
I think you'll be looking more at the speaker end of thing for sub bass, most amps will go lower than you want
SWR Megoliath is a good sub cab. It's probably the ultimate in Whale technology/cab design.
If it is marketed for bass guitar, its going to be pretty far from the ultimate design or current technology.
Not sure if they're made anymore, but Bag End's ELF (Extended Low Frequency) systems would definitely get you there.
What is your budget?
The Bag End subs are still made. They are accurate to 8hz as long as you use their crossover.
If you get the powered model make sure you order the amp with the cross over installed (they'll probably do this anyway).
And if you're really want to move some air, get the 24" speaker. At NAMM they'll loan these to a couple of builders that specialize in making "SubBass" guitars because it's pretty much the only thing that can reproduce the low strings.
Here's the Knuckle/CircleK fEARful 15/6 in action in the studio, being used by Matt Youngblood of Seattle's The Saints Of Damnation, who's playing one of those awesome longneck Quakes.
I got pretty good results with a GK Neo 410 cab and a 1001rb ii
The above rig (1001 + 410 neo) is mediocre at best. Have been provided this as backline occasionsally. No real lows, cardboardy mids and not much SPL. Far from fEarful etc.
I would love to try that Knuckle!
IDK Boss OC-2 (1oct down by itself)+ that rig is fantastic for sub bass (goes to 30Hz). You don't know what you are talking about. I've owned that amp/cab for years, you used it as a backline. What amp do you normally play? The whole rig can be had used for $800 or lower depending on the deal.
ashly KLR series
5Hz – 70kHz
thats pretty awesome. . ..
Doesn't matter what the amp can deliver if the speaker can't produce it. Actually the amp is the easy part.
ANY good poweramp or bass amp, but you want something special in the spkr cab dept.
