Has anyone ever compared?
Nothing? Does anyone own the virtue cab or have any experience with it?
Berg all the way between those two cabs. I wouldnt mix driver in the first place, let alone in the same air space.
Their individual response will be effected by the other drivers, which will become apparent in their impedance curve. Since all that is frequency, and power dependant, you can have unpredictable, and depending on your amp, dangerous results.
Thats on top of the standard "dont mix drivers" spiel.
Why do cab manufacturers build these if not I deal? I've never played the virtue but the clips I've seen sound great.
Because their marketing departments think they can turn a profit.
If the tonal output is good to my ears will this cause the tone of the cab to change over time? The bergantino ht322 is a great cab but bergantino no longer offers it or anything like it. Will the speakers not hold up?
I've heard nothing but good things about the Virtue cab.
So you're saying that the Virtue cab is a bad idea?
I think there are better cabs out there.
Im sure. The problem is finding them.
How so? Are you trying to meet some specific budget or size requirement?
Can't say I've ever tried either of those cabs but I do have a Bergantino HT322 as my medium size cab (NV610 is my big cab). I can say from tons of experience with it that having a 12" and two 10" speakers and an adjustable tweeter in the same ported cab can sound fantastic if done right. Berg does it right.
Between the two brands I'd go with the Bergantino hands down. I don't even look at other brands any more, Berg has the best product on the market as far a I'm concerned.
My biggest hesitation with the Tecamp would be the load switching. I can see situations where one might be playing the cab in the 8ohm mode but accidentally leaving their amp in the 4ohm setting or vise versa. Just seems like a train wreck waiting to happen. And it may just be me but I usually end up dialing way back or turning off any tweeters in my bass cabs if possible, so having 3 selectable tweeters just seems kinda goofy. They could have put just one in with a volume dial or just left them all out and I'd be just as happy.
The HT322 was discontinued before I was able to get money to buy it. I have the HD410 model, and it my oldest piece of equipment.
I was also interested in the virtue cab. Just pulled the trigger on toms ip322. Really excited to get mt hands on it.
I have a Virtue cab... the best cab I have ever heard... It is amazing to say the least... I know it is hard to find one to try out... but if you are ever in florida... you can hear mine. The best cab on the market!
I bought one. Its the best cab i ever had.
I had an HT322. Great cab, but the CN212 sounds just as good to my ear.
