    Yes, Sub has 2 Speakon jacks.

    Just took a photo and it looks like there's something wedged in the left hand side jack!

    I'm just on my way to work but will have a closer look tonight.

    Let me know what I'd need to look for with the 2 jacks.

    Thanks everyone :thumbsup:

    I don't think whatever was in there was the issue.

    I've swapped the Speakon cables around, tried them into both the left and right sides, I've tried running the amp into the Sub then Sub into 15/6/1. Not as deep a thump as if only 1 cab is connected. Standing 10ft away with a band playing made it very obvious that there was no bottom end. At low volume it's really hard to tell what's going on as it sounds "ok".

    Here's a pic of the Sub speakon jacks. The speaker is connected to the right hand side then that is connected to the left.

    Yeah. Individually they sound great but playing both the 15/6/1 & 15sub together they sound awful. No bottom end at all.

    This thread is going in circles. Put the red wires where the black wires are now. Put the black wires where the red wires are now. Put it back together and try it.

    But, whatever you do, don't cut the green wire.

    What he said! Making changes in the 15/6/1 could be fraught with other problems.

    Phase between the two crossovers and the 15 in the 15/6/1 has to be maintained, so the only reasonable place to switch the 15/6/1 is also at the input plate, IMHO.

    Were they both built by the same person? Do you know who built them?

    I thought it was not cut the black one.

    Actually you can cut the green one and the black one, but first remove the fuse.

    Jaco who? has it right . Just swap the red and black wires on the back of both inputs and you will be golden . Make sure you get them back on tight . If it were me I would have pulled the grill , then the speaker and just swapped the red and black wires on the speaker itself . The screw-on connectors on the speaker itself are much easier to change and get tight .

  15. Hey folks,

    I've been looking into fEARful cabs, but can't seem to find a Canadian builder. I did find someone who it looks used to build the cabs, and tried to contact them through their site. It seemed like a longshot as the site seems abandoned, and haven't heard back.

    Just wondering if I'm missing something or if any fellow Canadians who own a greenboy designed cab have any insight as to how to purchase a cab.

    I guess I should point out that I don't have any of the skills needed to build a cab myself.

    What about importing a cut kit, all the drivers, pre-built x-overs from a supplier like speakerhardware.com in the US, and hiring a local finish carpenter to build it?

    I had my two Fearless cabs built by Greenboy Audio in Massachusetts and then shipped up.

  19. Do you remember how much shipping and duties turned out to be? This is something I had considered as well, but I'm afraid it will be very cost prohibitive.
