    Does Gallien make their own speakers (Paragon), or are they supplied by Eminence? If so, are the 10s used in their RBH cabinets Deltas? I'm trying to get a handle on how much power the 10s in my 700RB/210 combo can handle. Thanks!

    Should be 400. I read that the 210 combos use the same speakers as in RBH cabs, and each once handles 200 watts. GK really should make an 810 with these things.

    They are Eminence in the RBH and the Neo cabs. As I recall.

    Hmmm, Betas, maybe? :meh: Deltas handle 350 watts apiece.

    Theyre custom made by Eminence especially for Gallien Krueger.

  6. They're 200 watts each designed by us, manufactured by Eminence. The magnets are too large and heavy for an 810 cabinet and these speakers really like to be in a ported cabinet.

    Thanks for clearing this up for me, guys!

    Dan, Do you happen to know the sensitivity rating on these speakers? I'm thinking of adding a non-GK cab to my 700RB/210 combo and would like to know how much volume difference to expect. Thanks!
     
  8. I don't have the free air sensitivity rating, but the 410 cabinet is 103dB.

    I'm wondering about adding cabs to my 700RB 210 as well. The 210 is already 400 watts being driven by 225 watts. I would hav ethought you'd need a ton of extra power to drive an extra 410! :eek:
     
  10. According to the 2003 brochure I downloaded quite a while ago the sensitivity of the 210RBH cab is 98db.
    I guess that would be the same as for the 700RB/210 combo?
     
  11. Measured at what frequency?
