    I recently bought a cab to run under my super redhead, a cheap 18 from a local used gear store, and have now decided to sell the redhead. I would like to use the 18"speaker and possibly a midrange to run the cab solo. What would be the best way to go about this???

    Thanks in advance!
    Nick.

    Anyone?
     
  3. Its already a full range cab. If its not giving you the sound you want on its own, sell it and move on.

    I don't see any Kappa 18. Sure it's not a 15?, or did Emi. used to make a Kappa 18 that's been discontinued?

    What amp?

    Active crossover/biamp capability makes it easy, otherwise the crossover is by far the hardest part. Off-the-shelf ones will work as far as driver protection, etc. but usually won't sound near as smooth as something purpose built, unless you get lucky and both your drivers just happen to play nice with the nominal 8ohm filters.

    Step one is see what kind of rom you have in the baffle to add what and look for mids that pair up well with your 18. Need response/impedance charts for your 18 to do that. If there's no room in the baffle, you may have to put the mid in it's own little top box.
