Hey folks. As promised here's my review of the Drb 3080 that I ordered. The cab's specs can be found at Dr. Bass's site, and here's a pic: This cab has a 900w crossover @ 1200hz and 5000hz I believe, and runs two Kappalite 3015LFs and a sealed back eminence 8" midrange (custom OEM driver for Drb, similar to the 6.5" sealed back mid that is out there), and a selenium soft dome titanium tweeter (or something like that, I am not sure to be honest). The cab is 37" tall by 23" wide by 17.5" deep and seems to weigh around 70lbs. It has a kick plate and a tilt back handle. Mesa 400+ I demo'd it briefly when I received it last night with my Mesa 400+. To be perfectly honest I had a really hard time getting a usable tone I was happy with, after playing the Schroeder for so long (with the high mids basically scooped out by the cab design). The 8" OEM mid and the tweeter seem very balanced, and overall I feel like the cab is pretty even all the way across. It took me some time to find the right slight scoop and bass boost to make me happy with the tone and yet still cut through -- I wound up with bass @ 4 pulled out, mids at 7.5 and treble at 2. I wound up cutting one from the mid on the cab, and adding one to the horn, for whatever that's worth. I think I will set everything back to flat next time I fool with the Mesa 400+ and try using the graphic instead to see if I can get better results. The tone I found sounds really nice and fat, yet has a good amount of mid presence that pleased me. And of course, after an hour or so playing I cranked it up to 7 master and 7 input and it almost exploded my eardrums. It is really damn loud and the C#/D are thunderous. The B is a little floppy (maybe imprecise?), but I attribute that to the wattage constraints of the Mesa -- every cab I've used it with, the B/C have been a little muddy. I will see if I can't post some sound clips at full volume flat on the Mesa as a point of reference, sometime soon. Not sure the Zoom H2 will be an accurate representation there though. Neopak The Neopak opened this thing up. I have no idea why that is, but the Genz tone + this cab was sonic bliss for me. I boosted low mids two clicks and clicked the mid scoop button, and I was off to the races. Dayum, even. I had it turned up pretty loud, but no output clipping at all - maybe noon on the input, master and gain, and the passive input setting (for my 9v bass). It was loud enough to get over very loud drums and a B52 halfstack no problem, and sounded absolutely stellar. I'll post a clip or two here as well and see if it demonstrates what I'm talking about. There were just enough mids to chop through, lots of low mids, lots of bass, lots of treble, just lots The Neopak's performance basically convinced me I need to break down and get the GBE1200 for this bad boy, instead of the Mesa. This cab screams for tons of solid state watts and the Genz is just an excellent mate for it. Portability The audition locale was up a narrow flight of stairs with a dirt and rock parking lot. I had no trouble getting it out of the back of the wagon, rolling it on the dolly wheels through the dirt, and carrying it myself up the stairs. It is a big bastard and slightly awkward, and about the limit of what I want to carry -- again I'd estimate it is closer to 70lbs than the 63 quoted, but I could be wrong and will need to plop it on a scale. Overall It does its job, is crazy loud, very flexible, easy to move around, and pretty sturdy. The white 16 gauge grill is awesome, and does not require any bumpers in the center to keep from rattling, so it's a breeze to remove or add. It got to me in great shape, excepting a couple of corners that are cracked. Pretty shocking given how huge the cab is and the rough treatment it clearly received from Fedex (the box was beat to crap). It was wrapped in many layers of plastic wrap, and protected very well. Bottom line, I am super glad I went with Dr. Bass on this. I think I could have made it a little more perfectly even by going with a separate mid box and a slightly bigger cab, but if this were any bigger I would not have been able to move it by myself with ease, and I can. Just the right size for me. Overall I think the tradeoff between big/heavy was pretty solid in this cab. The vertical alignment makes it super easy for me to hear, which is a problem I have had with every other cab I've had -- the room sounds fine but I can't hear worth a crap.
