please and thanks!!!!!!!
Paging mr. Baudin.
i reaaaaaaalllllllll dig that 2nd picture
tell me, how are you running your ca9 into that whappo?
i have a ca9 aswell, and i am not really sure how to approach it
Here's a recent gig with my Sadowsky going through my Aggie 750 into my Whappo, Jr. The tone is awesome.
Sadowsky -> DB750 -> El Whappo Jr = Tone Bliss
I'm in the middle of moving so I can't take pix of it's glory, but my formula for Tonal Bliss works very well and is light.
Lakland 4-94 -> Eden WT400 -> Tri110L & Tri112L =
I run the HBP-1 > CA9 and set it to parallel so that input A drives channel A & B and usually I just use one side. One side of the CA9 into the el whappo is usually PLENTY!! I had a gig last weekend and used the whappo on one side with a tri210L on the other channel, and it was ridiculously loud and punchy. Plus that way you can adjust the volume on the CA9 to get the right volume blend between cabs. I let another bass player use my rig that night and he was loving it... a little too much I think, you couldn't hear much of anything else!!
A word of warning- Bridging the CA9 is a scary endeavor. I wouldn't reccomend it, even with a big cab. I tried it once, it was like trying to drive a formula one car on a sheet of ice!!!! It would be fun to bridge one into two big cabs though, like a pair of 8x10's or something.
I couldn't be happier with my CA9. That is a power amp that does it's job! I like it so much that I could care less that it weighs 50 lbs!
who cares if its 50 lbs. like, only wimpy people complain about weight. like, lift weights or something hahah j/k
but really, yea i'll switch it back.
do i switch it to paralell mono? or stereo?
Is running two cabs off of one preamp signal what you want? Use the middle setting, It looks like input A > power outputs A+B. Be careful not to set it as A>AB (this would be bridged mode), you want A>A&B.
Of course if you have a stereo setup or something like that, you'll have two signals, but if you have one, and want to use two CA9 channels, thats the way to go.
regarding the weight, I was much more frustrated hauling my 40lb crest around because it didn't perform as well as I needed. The CA9 at 50lbs, fine with me!!!!!
you can download a pdf CA9 manual here http://www.crestaudio.com/products/browse.cfm/action/detail/item/116225/number/CFA-CA9-AB/cat/319/CA+Series.cfm
Nice rig, Jake! That's a pro setup if I've ever seen one. I know you make it sound good too!
thanks for the advice jake..
do you msn messenger?
what's this? when did the jive one get a sadowsky?!
No Sadowsky for me, I was talking about Kevins. On that note, your Sadowsky sounded killer through the DB750->Whappo Jr too.
pm at ya!!
How did you get an AG cab w/no carpet? The one on the left.
And I can say this: if anybody wants an Aggie 750 or an Accugroove cabinet, jivesound.com is the place to go. Great prices plus a knowledgable bass player to deal with.
Not affiliated, just very pleased with my dealings.
It was a prototype I think. They were looking at different covering options, and this was a sample. He asked me of I would be interested in taking this one instead of a carpet one. I actually like it alot, its super tough. Its less like EA's granular spray finish on the cxl112, more like the glossier Meyer or EAW type finish I've seen.
Here is mine:
It is, in case you were wondering, an Eden WT-800 and an AccuGroove Tri-112L.
