Looks like Accugroove´s concept, right?
There's a resemblance, but the big difference from AccuGroove is the lack of a dedicated midrange driver, and Berg's horn tweeter instead of AG's dome tweeter(s). Personally I don't care for horn tweeters, they all sound harsh to me.
Accugroove, EA, etc.
its been thrown around, but i think lots of guys dont appreciate the extra weight. but knowing Jim's rep, i'm sure it kicks major booty. could you imagine a pair of these??? Wooo HOooo! punch city.
Wait six months and everybody will havea 1-12/2-10 in their line
There's also the new EX-112, tweeterless version of the HT-112...$190 less!!!! Apparently it's aimed at upright guys who think a tweeter is useless.
Not bad for what it holds, but oof.
"Personally I don't care for horn tweeters, they all sound harsh to me."
Respectfully I would like to disagree with Chuck. The horn in the Bergantino is fantastic. I have had tweeters in other multiple 10" cabs and have always found them to be brittle and "clicky". The Bergs horn and crossover are smooth and natural. I went to NYC to check out a small cab to match with my Bag End 15, but I played the 3X10 and had to get it! It is a bit of a bear, but it is sure worth it! Additionally, it draws a 4ohm load and brings out the best in my amp!
If anyone gets to AB this with the 3x10, please share it with the forum!
I also think Jim Bergantino's crossover & Horn are the best I've heard!! Mmmmm smooth highend
now if he'd just make a stinking 4x10!
He could make a 16x10 for all i care... the dood makes some righteous cabs.
Well...............there's no 16x10 in the near future, but Jim built me a "custom 6x10" prototype that sounds so AMAZING that it will be in production soon!!!!!!! Used it last night and other bass players freaked!!
Looks pretty cool. One point about that sensitivity figure of 104 dB, though. If I remember correctly, 2.83 V into a 4 ohm cab is actually equivalent to 2 W @ 1 m, rather than the more common 1 W @ 1 m. (2.83 V would be 1 W into an *8* ohm cab.) So if you're comparing sensitivities with a cab measured at 1 W @ 1 m, for an accurate comparison, you should actually lower the Berg's sensitivity by 3 dB, to 101 db. Which is is still pretty dang good in my book, especially compared to stuff like my Acme (93 dB)!
woah, a 6x10? that thing must rock! now, why dont he just make a 4x10 while he's at it?
Looks interesting... oh wait... 95lb.
Looks like a great cabinet, too bad about the weight. Thats a deal killer.
Did ya notice they lowered the price of the 2x12 and 3x10s by $91.00?
Nick, are you listening?
wonder if its louder than a 4x10 of equal weight...
My guess is it's not - but not by much. There's no substitute for square inches of cone area!
Somebody should A/B the Berg 6x10 and Epifani 6x10.
