Help me to choose a 112

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by larrytron, Nov 16, 2003.


  1. Hey!
    I've a GK700rb with a marshall410.
    i want a smaller rig cause the marshall is bloody heavy and it provides too much bottom end when played at low volumes( bars, small gigs...).
    so i'm looking for a 112 that has a lot of power(i may need it) but also, which is the most important, a huge amount of mids, to cut trough easily.
    The Aggie Gs112 looks good and it's cheap.But i don't know if it has a lot of mids...
    Other ideas?


    thanks.

    I really enjoyed my BagEnd S12. If I buy a new 112 I'm narrowed to another BagEnd, the Bergantino or the new GenzBenz.

    Epifani T-112's. The mids they produce are hi-fi and they can cut through nicely in the mix.

    Euphonic Audio CXL-112.
    Check out the specs at http://www.euphonicaudio.com

    Great clear transparent sound. I run mine with an iAmp 600 or a Mesa Walkabout. The sound of my bass and amp come out crystal clear, with a lot of solid fundamentals.

  6. I guess my choice will be tough!!!
    After several answers, no one of you have the same choice of cab.
    Do they all handle the low B?

    Best of those for low B:

    EA CxL-112
    Epifany T112

    I play a five string in a rock/nu-metal, clasic rock and country band with bergantino 112s. Works great!

    FWIW, I think the Aggies will have more pronounced mids than the cab that you are playing through now. The Aggies are a little mid-shy. But, with the right EQ setting, any desirable EQ can be attained. The Aggies are also a liitle lighter on the wallet than the Berg's or the Epi's. If you got cash to spare, go with the Berg's or Epi's. Otherwise, try the Aggie's out. I think you would be surprised.

    PS My Aggie's have no problem handling my low B. I use a Demeter-QSC PLX-1602-Lakland set-up, if that helps.

    my choices!

    the Epi's much more cutting, but the EA just slams you in the gut. so punchie, it's illegal.

    and dont be afraid to kick up the upper mids or be a little aggressive with the EQ.

    :bassist:
     
  11. I'll try the Aggie. that's the only one i can find in Paris, compared to Epi's n' Bergi's...
    So if I have to make a "blind buy" i really want to be sure it will fit my needs.


    Does anyone of you have tried the EBS NEO112?

    I'll second the suggestions for the Epifani T-112 and the EA CxL-112. Both are killer cabs, but each has a very different voicing, so check them out if possible (which it sounds like it might not be). Other good options might be Bergantino or the Accugroove Tri 112. If you are looking for a 4 ohm cab, and don't do a lot of super-zingy slap pop, the tweeterless EA Wizzy cab is outstanding. It can really cut through a mix, as well.

    Good luck, Tom.
     
  13. How much do you spend in the US for a Epi T112?
    Because the only Epi's place I found in Europe is in Germany (Musik Productiv) and they are quite expensive $985 or so. I'm not kidding!!!
    That makes toomuch for a simple 112 cab if they are really cheaper in the US I'll try to get one overseas, or a used one if it's worthy...

    I think that you can get them for around $700.00 or so. PM Gard at Bass Central.

    The CXL112 is a great cab. It can handle a ton of power, and will produce a low B easily.
     
  18. The CXL is interesting!!!Very interesting.
    But it's a wallet killer compares to the others...

    Again, if you can swing a US purchase, check with Gard. He can get you a very good price on the CxL-112.

  20. I'll PM him, but before doing that,I prefer to check what I can find in France or Europe.
    Customs are hungry in France...:D
