I recently started the svt 410hlf vs. aguilar gs212 thread. Thought I might get more answers, if I pinpointed my problem a little more carefully so here goes. I think this is a fairly general issue, so others might benefit from this thread too. I am currently using a 700rb-I + neo112. When I play live with my band (no PA support) I have no problems keeping up volumewise, but I would like the sound to fill the room better. I guess I want better/another kind of projection. If I use a long cord and stand out front, playing during soundchecks, the way it sounds makes you very aware exactly where the bass sound is coming from. Sort off like the sound reaches you in a beam more than a wall/surrounds you. When playing on stage I can easily hear myself, but would like to feel the bass a little more and have a more pillowy bottom (without being muddy, think John Deacon of "Queen") as opposed to an attacking/aggressive sound (I play fingerstyle with a relatively light touch). Is this a matter of eq settings or is increased speaker area the answer to my problems? If its speakers I need what would be better? 212: More of the tone my 112 has? 115 to fill out the low end? 412/810: The only thing that can give what I request is a fridge-sized cab? Allmost all my gigs are without PA support.
