    This is incorrect. The speed of a woofer is directly related to its transient response which is dictated by the rate of change of current thru the voice coil. And since a voice coil is essentially an inductor, and inductors don't like the current to change thru them, the higher the inductance, the slower this rate of current change thru the coil and the "slower" the transient response or speed of the woofer. The transient response is also directly related to the frequency response. If you compare two similar size woofer's responses, one with a longer, higher inductance VC and one with a shorter, lower inductance VC, you notice the frequency response of the shorter coil extends higher. Mass has nothing to do with it. Mass does effect sensitivity and resonance but not speed. It is a constant in the force equation, as is BL (Motor strength- assuming it's a well designed motor). The rate of change in current is proportional to the acceleration of the system which is directly affected by the voice coil's inductance.

    Put simpler, speed and acceleration are time variant parameters. So when you say the "speed" of a woofer is pretty much the magnetic force (BL) divided by the moving mass, you have a quotient derived by dividing two constants. There isn't a time variant parameter to be found in this equation.

    Lauzon custom dual coils. Kind of reminds me of F bass pickups, in a good way.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but do folks recommend a HG410+HDN112 stack? I saw the combo posted on instagram and wondered if that's a good idea. Looked awesome though!

    Isn't that 112 just going to get overwhelmed by the 410? Might be hard to even hear it.

    F62D8902-E72F-425A-A480-2ED29E0E4AB8. In my experience I would stick with the same size speakers… I think adding a 12 would get blurry. It always does for me.

    HG410 and HDN 210 sounds EPIC. I might even like it better than HG710!!!,

    there, I said it!!!!

  6. Well, I'm assuming the 12 is 8 ohms, and the 410 is 4, so, not THAT much of an imbalance of power.. . But, still ?

    I would guess that the brighter tweeter on the HDN112, as well as the deeper low end extension, could be a nice complement to the HG410.

    Although, the immediacy of attack of the sealed HG410 might be compromised. You never know until you try!

    Considering an HG 410 or a pair of Ref 210's. What sonic differences might I expect?

    Just picked up this IP-112 that I’ve been hoping to pair with my Julie Monique for a long time. Really enjoying it paired up with an Nv115

    From last night. I love sealed cabs for conditions like this: plate glass behind the band, concrete floor in front. Tight lows made the best of a poor situation.

    Bumping your question for those who have tried both cabs. Haven't tried the REFs, but here's my 2¢ anyway: pretty sure the biggest difference will be that the HG is sealed while the REF is ported. IMO that would be a bigger factor than the rear speaker on the HG. Ported cabs tend to sound deeper/bigger, sealed cabs typically have "tighter" lows.

    Agreed! Same horn so highs will be close, but the ported ref 210 pair will give IMO deeper lows. But the HG310 will give IMO quicker as well as tighter response. Two different flavors of goodness, yet with commonality of highs.

    Was wondering if people tend to find the HD112 more aggressive/punchy because of the different tweeter compared to the REF112 or HT112ER.

    Edit: Only asking because I was reading past threads on the HD112 and someone said the HD112 had "more punch" than the HT112ER, so I was wondering if that's the general consensus. Not sure if just a different tweeter could change the perception of how punchy a cab is, but it doesn't seem completely irrational. Do some prefer the HD line to the HT/REF, and why?

    what do you call a 2xCN210 + 1xCN112 rig? CN532? CN410112? Because thats what I'm cooking up over here. Just picked up a CN112 which is by far my favorite Berg 112 to put under my 210's for outdoor gigs. Cant wait to fire that rig up!

    Third gig Saturday with this dream rig, and I'm really, really loving it. So versatile.

    I played with same band, same sound company/PA, and different/borrowed backline rig 3 days prior (festival). Difference was night and day.

    yes sorry, HDN212

    I used a CN212 for several years and many gigs. As great as it was, this has more authority.

    Saturday’s gig in Snug Cove:


    MyHG310, HandBox R-400 and Fender PJ as the back line. SO good! Had a few bands playing and everyone agreed this rig has got some serious mojo. The PJ into the front end on the R-400 is just so great for vintage tones. Never turned the amp past 11 o’clock so the Berg didn’t even break a sweat. But man... the HG310 captures everything and sounds so nice and balanced while remaining fat and authorative, articulate and detailed. Glorious!
