Hi Folks, I have been having major issues with my Focus 2 Series II I bought last summer. I have tried numerous cabinets Flite 12, SWR, Porta bass and settled on a LDS 1x8 3 way. I played a gig in china town the other night and with the LDS I had all of the highs up and the bass all the way down and it was still a boomy mess. When I play a lot of other gigs the mid range seems to bark like crazy and the tone is "synthetic" to my ears. Are there any of you that have similiar experiences with these amps? It seem like everyone is so happy with the sound and I have not heard anything bad about them. Is there another way to EQ this thing so it is clearer at loud volumes? A pre amp? I do have a mic channel that I am using with a Shure beta 99 clip on mic. I tossed it after the first set as it was adding insult to injury. BTW- I am using a Pollman bass (bright and known for puchy mids anyway) strung with Oliv G (to keep the brightness down) Obligato D and Helicor Hybrid Mediums on E and A (strange set but acoustically the bass sounds fantastic and records well). I am using a realist pickup. I appreciate ANY advice on how to solve this problem. I don't want to sell the AI but am really close to going back to the GK combo...which sounds really good with the LDS as an extension BTW.
