Lack of punch

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by BlackburstJBP, Dec 17, 2005.


  1. I got rid of a peavy mark head and an 1820 cabinet.I replaced it with ampeg svt pro 4 and a pr410hlf cab.I used to be able to feel that 18 slapping the back of my leg.I love the sound of my new gear ,but it doesnt have the punch.Do I need to make adjustments?

    I don't think anyone can really say unless you tell us how you are eq'ing and what type of bass you're playing.
     
  3. Turn up the mid a bit, however, to me anyway, 10's have a hell of alot more punch than 18's . . . so, i dont know, must just be needing EQ'd a bit :)
