Besides being overkill, of course...
So...uhhh, when's the tour start?
Wow, i didnt think you'd be downsizing your rig dude
Wow. What will you use as a spare for the Sunn?
The rack rig is basically what I play through. Good choice, good sound.
I didn't see a hand-truck, back brace, roadies, or moving van anywhere in your sketch!
Hmm... another Sunn?
Lots of deep lows?
The rack will have wheels, as will the cabs. I do need a trailer, though. The roadies we have taken care of.
why a shroeder if you are going to swap out the speakers and replace them with those others?
Are they Jorg's upgrades?
If not, shouldnt they get a cab designed for them, instead of one designed for Jorg's 12's (eminences).
Otherwise, turn it up... i bet i could hear you from here!
I want guitar speakers for the top cabs.
Then get guitar cabs. You'd just be pi$$ing away $$ by buying Schro's and swapping the drivers. Which might be a good thing in your neck of the woods, I don't know. You may want to save the money now for the hearing aids you're going to need in a few years.
Forget that solid state nonsense in the rack, if a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing right. Three more sunns should do the trick, and methinks maybe the marshal 4x12 bass number that clocks in at 120 lbs instead of those schroeders (four of 'em, of course). You'll want a full, not necesarily hi-fi sound when you really get to rocking.
I like the fact that the Schroeder 4x12s are tall, yet narrow. I've only got a Ford Explorer right now!
Schroeder's aren't exactly hi-fi, but they're clearer sounding than Ampegs. I like grit, but I like definition as well. I want low end clarity (completely clean), but fuzzy midrange & treble. Also, again, I like the size of the Schroeders. Right now, i'm schlepping 120+lb Sunn 2x15s, and while the weight is a pain in the ass, it's the actual size that's the biggest bitch loading them into my car.
Remember, i'm probably only gonna start out with two cabs. Four for when we open for The Who (before another one dies...).
Ahaha, your cabinet threw me off because there's an ambient metal band called Sunn O))).
I just made the relation between that logo and the band though, haha.
But it looks fantastic!
The thing is, at those higher frequencies the side firing speakers in the Schroeders aren't doing anything for you. You'd be better off with 2 212 guitar cabs which are even narrower, shallower, and lighter than what you're considering.
But hey, it's your rig.
I gathered that. Then why use a cab designed specifically for bass? It is my understanding that the offset woofers act as a sort of low pass.
Looks cool though.
Maybe a standard 4x10 guitar top on top so it fits in your truck?
Sean, I love your enthusiasm!!!
I'd say do it while you're young... When I was your age, I didn't think twice about carrying around my EV SRO loaded 2x15, my (former ) Marshall Major head or a Fender Twin loaded with EVM 12Ls (about 90 lbs worth). Now....sheesh!
A 3000 watt amp on the bottom cabs, paired up with a 60 watt amp on top? Isn't that kind of a mismatch?
If that were the case, why would Jorg be using the angled design for his guitar cabs as well?
That 60 watt amp gets ridiculously loud when pushing just mids & highs. The 3,100 watt one is for headroom @ 40hz.
I think you need to get rid of all that stuff on the left over there and get yaself a 2000S > 4x12 Marshall for the highs and a Coliseum 300 > Sunn 118 for the lows
