    Yes, and thank you. This has been an entertaining and educational thread to follow, populated by smart, funny people.

    If you don’t mind me asking, does “fourstr00” imply an interest in motorcycles that don’t rely on oil in their fuel for lubrication?

    I wish someone in the St. Louis area had a AK 15. I’d love to try a 1505 or -06 someday.

    It does! Big into anything with two wheels, both motorized and non.

    As a card carrying AK heavily slanted asskissing fanboy I’m feeling unappreciated.

    I was lucky enough to try an original H1505 and it was phenomenal. A pair would be devastating.

    Yeah, it's nice when you find a quite corner of the internet with intelligent people. Definitely worth appreciating.

    Hello Bass players.

    I did send an email to duke, with a few newbie questions, but no answer yet.
    I sent it before I could find the club, and reading here I found out he’s having problem with Yahoo emails. Maybe he’ll never get the email.

    Any help, will be great.

    I’m interested on 2 - H1203 or Maybe the H212 but at the same time i got the dilema of a few people.
    TC112 Vs H1203. I did read his website, and I’m reading here slowly as much as i can, but it’s long.

    I don’t like voiced cabs, ( I mean, Really voiced )
    But the dumb question is: How voiced is it the H1203?? Can it go more natural??

    Another newbie question:
    If i do Mix 1 TC112 and 1 H1203 do i get phase cancelation from each other???

    H1203 isn’t that voiced. Top switch up, bottom switch down, ports closed, it’s pretty neutral, at least to my ears.

    Hey, I stopped by your place once and bought a bass. I don’t get to CLT as often these days but next time I’ll let you know if you want to demo a 1203.

    And to answer your question the 1203 mids are more pronounced but very natural, even in grind mode. The TC’s I had (212, 115AFWide) were more polite and had more top end. A bit too much treble for me. They almost seemed scooped but in reality were probably very even and I just like more mids.

    I’ve never mixed but I recall others doing so with pleasing results.

    My reply pasted from the other AK thread:

    I've been using a TC115 for almost six years. My gigs now are in locations where the TC115 is physically too large. I recently took delivery of a 1203 and have used it on two gigs.

    If I'm in "cork sniffing" mode, the TC115 is transparent while the 1203 is colored. Both in a good way.

    If I'm in "reality; let's get the job done" mode, I could use either cabinet on any of my gigs equally as well.

    If I was going to amplify anything in addition to bass (keys, drums, etc.), I'd get a TC. For just bass, I'd probably get a Hathor. And I'd let the volume you need dictate which size or how many cabs you get.

    And there's also the H1203 Tall to consider. That was my 2nd AK cab, first was the Changeling 112 which has the rear firing speakers. Both of these are my fave cabs, for different situations. For close stages with unusual footprint where you need somebody behind you to hear better, or you need a bigger sound on the stage, the C112 fits well (and there's a T also). And for a bigger sound, a little deeper that seems to me like better coverage in a room the H1203T is my fave. I've played some pretty loud pub-type gigs with the 1203T and it covers with ease.

    For pairing and phasing the C112 and H1203T sound great together; no phase kinds of issues that I've noticed. That's my choice for outdoor gigs with or without a sound man. Other guys here have paired other AK combinations and they'll chime in I'm sure.

    And welcome to AK joy! Duke builds great bass cabs. You'll be pleased once you make your selection and wait for the arrival.

    I have had a TC212 and I currently have a Hathor Changeling 1533. The TC was amazing but extremely reference like. Pretty much zero voicing. It was not the right cab for me even though it sounded incredible. The hathor on other hand is voiced but it is minor and it does not change your natural tone to the extent that you lose your instruments natural flavour. IMO anyways. As previously mentioned the TC is VERY smooth. Basically no grid whatsoever. I always use the grindy mid setting on my Hathor but it is certainly not over the top. With the mids set down without the grind it is a very smooth and clean cab.
