Hi all! I finally built my first Fearful 12/6 and have in the process run into some very interesting and frustrating experiences. I have experiences with 4x10 cabs from Eden and GK that were top of the line and also i do sound engineering in the studio and live for a living. That said, i feel like a total fool I first tested a Fearful 15/6 at someones rehearsal space with my own small Eden WT550 and was really shocked by the "distorted" sound coming out of the mid driver especially. It was farting out, but in a weird way. After this i posted online somewhere (probably here) and came to the conclusion that it had to have been the power amp giving too little juice to an 8ohm impedance cab. Hence the farting.. This made me put the whole building plans off for a while until now. In the meantime i had bought an EBS Reidmar 750 (also only 350w@8ohm) and was looking for a smallish but powerful and great sounding cab -> the fearful 12/6. Supposed to be high sensitivity and take a lot of wattage if needed and give a great deal of substinence for it. I first bought only the 3012LF and made the cab, not being able to afford the whole set with the alphalite and crossover parts etc due to other investments in gear. Expecting nothing from it i tried this setup (basically a FEarful 12 sub) and while being muffy, i kinda liked the punchyness and general feel of it. Once i had the money i figured i will finish the cab, and so i did. This is where it gets really interesting... I hooked it up just like before, same bass, same settings etc. And the stupid farting sound was there again. To be honest i had a slight farting with just the lo driver before, but it was not as audible (bass distortion vs mid/hi). Now it is in your face. I was upset. I figured it HAS to be the poweramp. So today i packed my gear in the car and drove to my shop where i have my FOH gear and i connected everything and tried the same system just powered by 1800w@8ohm. (ofc not blasting it to pieces) The biggest surprise: There was no noticeable difference between the EBS and the HUGE poweramp -> it was the cab then that farted... Now i am at home. Dissapointed and almost ready to give up. Maybe i am expecting too much? Could it be a leakage between the mid and bass enclosure? or even in the bass enclosure itself (i have yet to properly seal the connection plate at the back that was fitted AFTER installing the mid driver. Now it is screwed tightly but not sealed with pl premium or silicone etc)? I figured a tiny leakage cannot affect such a huge farting sound, or can it? What other problems could cause this? The farting funnily happened mostly around the area of and open A and E string. Tight and hard fingerstyle plucking cause real havoc here.. I would love for this to work, but i feel either 1. i expect too much, 2. both (the previously tested and my own fearful) have leakages (or other problems) 3. or then i am just a fool and cannot see the obvious........ HELP! please HELP!
