    I was going to ask if anyone had any experience with them but apparently they don't come out until June.

    They look interesting. 2100 watts should sound interesting too, but who knows. --> Clicky
     
  2. Those look fantastic, rather ingenious to be honest. I don't envy the roadies who have to handle that 4108 cab though. They also look like they would cost a fortune with all those features.

    Thanks for posting this though.

    I like the back of their amp
    "Designed and Manufactured in the USA by Nit-Picky Engineers and a Quality Crazed production team"

    ......nice.

    Points off already. I always assume these companies have nit-picky engineers and a quality crazed production team, and if they feel the need to trumpet it, maybe it's not something that happens naturally. Maybe they have to beat their employees with leather belts and send them to "re-education" classes to get their nit-pickiness up to such high standards.

    I'm just sayin'...

    I'm actually a little shocked and saddened now..... my friend and I (he's got a masters degree in electrical engineering, I'm pursuing one) have been making effects pedals and designing bass amps for over a year now; our "business" is called Forge Engineering. I'm pretty irritated that someone beat us at our own game and even got the name. oh well, life goes on. they win, we lose.

    interesting... but i think i'd still be happier with a 1x15 100watt versatone.

    They're pretty hard to find these days. Good amp though.

    BTW, I was just joking about the label on the back.

    That sucks because I was going to totally buy one just because of that label!

  17. Hi.

    Quite cool features, but the looks leave a lot to be desired. IMHO of course.

    Servo controlled amps I believe, a bit different thing, both construction- and cost-wise ;).

    Yeah a servo controlled amp - how the heck does that work I wonder?
     
  19. Hi.

    There's a feedback loop from the output circuitry, or if done correctly, a separate feedback coil in the speaker. That position/velocity data controls the waveform in the extreme ends of the cone excursion. Acts a bit like an active and adaptive compressor in the output circuit.

    The problem is that when the servo circuit breaks up the result is a total silence or the **** hits the fan and then a total, infinite silence. Near impossible to analyze and repair those circuits are IMLE.

    Regards
    Sam
     
  20. i wonder what the price is gonna look like
