I'm in love with the 15 Woofer. Lol
Now, I can get amazing tones and volume through my headphones. I should be satisfied with this. There's just something about the bass notes floating passed ones ears and ruffling your shorts when playing open air.
I totally agree. One of my basses sounds kind of flat with headphones. However, with the exact same preset on my Studio 40 and moving air it sounds so much better
I think I'm just missing those early 70's days playing Cream, Mountain, Hendrix, etc. live through my SUNN Stack of 2x15 and 6x10. Lolol
Yes, my BL has a 200c that I’ve used a few times.
That 15” driver is really smooth and full.
I can only imagine. 15s are just so nice for some reason.
I have a 1 x 15 combo (Acoustic from 2008/2009) and there's something about that speaker with my P-basses. Everything sounds so clear, while still being thick and warm.
Every time I think I should sell it, I plug in and test it out. After 5 minutes the thought of selling it is gone.
Don't misunderstand me(Rossington-Collins Band), I love my 200c. It does/did everything I wanted it to do. It's just overkill for some of the rooms that we play.
I have both the R100v3 and the R200v3. I play a L2000 w/flatwounds with Big Bands. The 100 (with upgraded neo speaker) sounds very good...but the R200 with the slightly larger cab and that glorious stock 15 sounds PHENOMINAL. Much higher quality character in the tone. Fuller...heartier..CAN get louder but sounds great at low volumes. Weightwise it's 19.5 vs 34.5 lbs..so if another 15 lbs isn't an issue (use a cart with bungie cord))....and you afford it....get the R200 and you'll be very happy.
I see what you did there
It's for home use in our cabin, all wood with glass Great Room, to.play along with my old favorites (Cream, Mountain stuff). So moving it is not an issue. I have the entry level MM Stingray with a Bartolini Humbucker.
And I may later put either the Fender 2x10 or an Orange 1x12 under it some day. I like the Orange in black due to its 30 weight and looks.
Great Room with wood, glass and loud bass. Sounds great to me. I would make sure the glass is secured and consider an HPF .
Attention: Rumble Club Wiki Edit Alert!
Ladies and gentlemen of The Club: I just discovered a very educational thread with significant technical input from an extremely knowledgeable "ElderEquine", if you know who I mean. If not then, See the new top link in the Speaker Replacements section of the Rumble Club Wiki. Although that thread was started about a 120-watt Hartke amp, it quickly referenced the V3 Rumble 100 in a similar situation.
Seems both combo amps come with speakers "nominally rated" for only 75-watts, but with higher rated amp heads, which would, on the surface, seem problematic! But, the MatureSteed, who is very familiar with testing & design processes (to say the least), assures that these speaker specs are not even reasonably accurate and, more specifically, that Fender's testing is "pretty conservative compared with most".
Therefore, the message I get and relay here is: Do not replace the V3 Rumble 100 speaker just because you heard, or read, that it's just a 75-watt speaker! Further, I believe, it may be that just adding a bit of internal acoustic fill, usually lacking from the R100c (but not from the R200c or R500c) and described in the Rumble Modifications section of the Rumble Club Wiki, may improve its sound as much as an expensive speaker swap.
I hope this info will be useful to some here, especially for the spec-hound modifiers amongst us. And long shall we all continue to . . . .
The R500 with 1x15 definitely shook it up.
Well, shake it up, baby.
Goo$ info G-Dog! Thanks
Oh you guys and your 15" speakers.. Size Queens!
I love it!! Definitely loud and punchy
It will break windows and rattle neighbors floors and cause trees to loose their leaves and squirrels nuts to fall from nests. It really will!!!!! Sonic Booms.
