Best 10's that REFUSE to bottom out ay high volumes?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Bassslayer69, Feb 29, 2008.


  1. The drivers Basson uses in their cabs. They need 250 watts minimun per 10" speaker to work properly. With 12.5 pound magnets they can dish out the low end like nobody's business. :bassist:
     
  2. What about the madison knight 10's? at 250 watts each,50 to 4500 hz and a huge 3 inch voice coil, they are starting to sound pretty good! plus, they can be had for 45 bucks a piece!

    Xmax has more to do with how hard you can hammer with bass guitar without bottoming out than "RMS" ratings or sensitivity ratings that were taken at non-low frequencies.

    Don't know if that was sarcastic or not.

    I had a free lunch today. The venue gave us a deli tray, and now I'm going downstairs to have free dinner, too!

    Dinner sucked, BTW. Lousy frozen grilled chicken and pasta with Ragu. Cheapskates.

    Gig food is always hit or miss. Usually miss.

    It's also always a recipe for comical situations, since half of the musicians in Madison are vegetarians.

    Look here. http://www.tonetubby.com/speaker.htm

    I played an early 70's reinforced Ampeg 8-10" cabinet loaded with these powered by my AI Focus 2R and later that afternoon by a QSC PowerLite 380. Rather than listen to my giddy babel I'll just say you'd be a fool not to check these drivers out yourself.

    Hand made in Petaluma California using hemp cones. These guys did a major work at Lucas Film down the road and their list of customers is impressive. Their instrumental Bass drivers are newish.

    Wow, for those prices, I hope they teach you how to play the bass! Did the cab wire up at 4 ohms or 2? I always thought you had to use 32 ohm speakers to get an SVT cab wired up at 4 ohms. Could be wrong, though.

    Rob, your not at all wrong.

    Keep in mind that while NAFTA has kept costs down to mass market consumers imported goods it still costs more to produce a product locally here in the US let alone a hand made driver who's resistance can be customized for a particular application.

    It's worth a call to Brown Soun in San Rafael, California to work out any details regarding application, reconeing of your current driver/s and pricing.

    That lunch wasn't free. You worked for it. Dinner wasn't free either. And, you paid twice, first by working and second by eating trash. Nope, not free at all.

    Wow, you're right. It wasn't free. Now I feel terrible and depressed.
     
  15. How about just going with a 6in mid,and tweeter rather than 410s?
