Berg HT112 and EX112 Hookup Question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Big String, Feb 22, 2003.

  1. Little survey here.
    Rig: Demeter VTBP01s-QSC/PLX2402-Berg HT112 and EX112. Lakland 4-94 Deluxe Bartolini's Maple neck, set at 500hz.

    How do you hook yours up?
    Parallel one cab per channel. 8ohm each side.
    Parallel two cabs in channel 1 daisey chained. 4ohm
    Bridged -4ohm daisey chained

    I tried all of these combinations and so far I like the parallel daisey chained hook up. Gives a 4ohm load on channel 1. Seems to be the deepest and cleanest. I just can't get my set-up to sound good in the popular Bridged Mode.... The lower notes alway sound muddy no matter how I tweak it.

    Trying it tonight, please respond asap. thanks

    Big String....are you using the right kind of Speakons for the bridged mode?

    I use a Ultra Wally with mine 2 outputs one into each cab.

  5. Andrew, sounds great. Never tried a Wally.

    Jerry, so you upgraded to the 3002 I see from your profile. Still have the 2402?

    Seriously, I don't know which is the best way to run my rig. I know it's all what sounds good to me.

    Let's see..
    using one channel two cabs - 8ohm 300w x2 = 600w @4ohms pulls 700w from amp

    using two channels - 8ohms 300w = 425w per channel.

    If I did the figuring right the parallel hookup using two channels should be slightly more power. ??

    I know the Bergs are rated for a lot more power, but like I said I just don't hear any advantage to bridge mode. More head room is not making any real difference to me. I must be doing something wrong. :rolleyes:

    I'm not a big fan of bridge mode......I always run parallel or stereo. I still have the 2402......it's my "small" rig amp now:D
  7. Jer,
    do you ever run two 8ohm cabs and if you do, do you hook them up together or one per channel?
    I think I know the answer. Just curious.

    Andrew or anyone, does Walter Woods have website? I sure can't find it. I thought I had something bookmarked but I guess not...

    I have a few 8ohm cabs......and when I run them, it's usually one per side. I've been using poweramps a long time.....goes back to my bi-amp days. I once blew a channel on one of my amps during a gig, and was able to finish the gig with the other channel no problem;)
