Casters for a 115

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Wedding Dress, Jan 19, 2004.

  1. Hey guys. I was wondering if I should put casters on the bottom of my Hartke 115 or on the side. Will I lose any low end if I put them on the bottom?

    I'd put them on the side so that the cabinet doesn't roll all over the place when you're playing.

    Actually, I'd build a dolly board (carpet covered plywood with castors) or get a folding hand truck. Either one is a few more bux but has many more uses other than just moving one speaker cabinet around...
  3. I'm in the same situation, except I put my 15 on its side when I stack anything on top of it so casters on the bottom wouldn't be a problem (other than the rattle of them due to vibrations... tape I suppose).

    I've definitely been thinking about building a dolly board or road case. Wouldn't have to screw anything into bottom of the cab that way, and can just get rid of it once it's in place.

    Casters on bottom: Takes away from any coupling effect with the floor, if that's desireable.

    Casters on the side: Might rattle with the low frequencies when playing.

    I suggest pop-out casters, on the bottom.
