Carvin RL410 for five string

    I am using a Carvin R1000 with a RL410 cabinet that is working well now with my four string Jazz. I am probably going to get a five string soon.
    Does anyone have experience with this cabinet (or ones like it) used with a five string? I play in a large hall often, which tends to soak up the low end, actually. Do you expect I will have trouble with this?
    (If so, I may consider converting my 118 cab to a 15/6 set up. I'd rather not have to replace all four ten's in the RL410, plus I really don't want to use two cabs.)

    Why not wait till you've got your 5 string, and see how it goes. No sense in making problems that don't yet exist, and maybe never will. If your 410 won't handle a low B, (which is doubtful), then you'll have a problem to solve.

    Makes sense - probably how it's going to go... We'll see how it goes; likely just a case of GAS trying to flare up again.
  4. I used my 7 on the same cab it rocked
    love carvin cabs

    The RL410T is a good cabinet by itself.
    But it was designed as the top half of a biamped system.
    To really get the fundamental of the low B on a five-string, I'd want a fifteen or an eighteen under it.
