....pushed by a GK 800RB.
I know that my back be happy, but what about my ears??
A 15” driver is about equal to two 10” ones. Theoretically you’ll be losing a bit of volume but I hope it all works out for you.
You might also consider replacing the GK with a Class D unit. That old beastie weighs a ton!
The tonal quality change is harder to assess. Every time I go 212 I miss the responsiveness of the 10’s. Keep adjusting, eventually it all works out
Thnaks for the re
Thanks for the reply!!
Replacing the 800RB with another amp??
One "scary" step at a time....hehehehe
I just ditched my XL4.5 for a Rumble210. I couldn't be happier, my back too.
Well, I pulled the trigger on a pair of Epifani PS112s but it'll be a couple of weeks until they arrive. If I don't sell my 410XL beforehand, I'm gonna set up a "wall of doom" with my 800RB and all three cabinets, just because...
I think that will be an awesome mini stack. I run an Eden WT550 into an Epifani ULII 310 that weighs 42lbs and it sounds better than any other cab I had before (Hartke, Fender, Peavey, Carvin). Well worth the money for that tone and low weight.
Make sure you don’t go too low on impedance. It could be fatal for your amp.
They are all 8 ohm cabinets. The 410 on the 8 ohm, 100 watt side and the two 112s on the 4 ohm, 300 watt side. We're good!!
I owned a pair. Gonna be a whole lot of boom. The tweeters are subtle but present. Watch your bass knob.
It's all down to how loud you have to play. I went from an Epifani UL410 to 2 Berg AE112's. No problem.
When I got into a really loud band I just put a 3rd AE112 on top and ran the amp at 2.67 ohms.
c’mon. Really? A ton? How about 20#. Why don’t we start complaining about basses. They clock in at 9# and we have to carry them ALL night!!
Did you not notice the icon?
I’ve replaced all my lead sled amps with more capable Class D units. Much easier load in and out!
I'm starting a new thread about my take on this.
Aren't we getting somewhat "soft" ?
Update: I’m really, really happy!!
My original plan was to sell the Hartke and run my 800RB and effects into the two Epi PS112. Things kinda changed...
No effects at all, bass directly into the 800RB with the 08 ohm Hartke on the 100 watt amp and the two Epis on the 300 side. Phenomenal!!!
I really don’t need this much cabinet and doubt that I’ll ever take it all to a gig. But what a sound, by far the best bass tone I’ve ever had.
