    The IP153 is a cab the exact dimensions as the IP212 and IP310. Same weight.
    It has 1x15", 2x6"s, and a tweeter.
    It has two amps within. One 500w into 4 ohms does the highs. The other is 500w into 8 ohms and does the lows. When the EX115 is added, a 1x15 cab, that amp does 1000w into 4 ohms.
    Like the IP112 the DSP has two settings one for a single cab and the other for the additional 1x15.

    ..."The DSP is programmed not
    only for Eq'ing and Compression/Limiting as in the other IP models,
    but it also has all the filtering for the crossover between the 15
    and mid-tweets as well as time alignment. The DSP along with the second channel of amplification has really allowed me (Jim) to take the IP concept to another level."

    I played Tom Bowlus' and thought it sounded fantastic. This is not a surprise for an IP cab!

    But put a second 1000 watt amp in the sub.

    There's no such thing as too many watts.

    When the EX115 is added the highs still get 500w the lows get 1000w. More might be unnecessary. I've experienced visual distortion cranking this thing outside. I had to turn down as my guitarists were struggling:eek::crying::oops: Sorry!
  6. Damn - one MORE thing on the G.A.S. list (2 more things if you count the extension cab)!

  7. Awesome!! Just awesome :smug:

    Actually, I just use a Presonus TubePRE direct box.. All it has on it is volume and drive.. I tried it with my old Kern preamp and found it to be too much, but I needed the Kern when I had the IP/EX-112 set-up just to have alittle more control.. The 153 sounds great on it's own and I found that I didn't need to add anything else..:bassist:

    Any truth to the rumor that Victor Wooten just ordered up one of these?

    A 1x15/2x6 w/HF driver cab? I'd order a passive one in a heartbeat! :hyper:
  16. +1 on that, but Jim had told me once that the cabs were designed to be IP only and he had no plans to make a passive version.
