    Yorkville XS800H powering Schroeder 310212, am I crazy? Will the Yorkville do the Schroeder justice?

    Greetings,
    The XS800H Yorkville should be a fine match for that cab.

    I would ask Jorg Schroeder that question if I were you. You might not have enough power. The 310212 is rated@ 2100 watts rms, you wont have any headroom.

    What amp would you suggest to run with the 310212?

    Also a QSC PLX 2402 would work nice. I am asuming that this cab requires a seperate pre-power setup. On the other hand, Jorgs cabs are very efficient and you may not need that much power to run them, but a little headroom never hurts. 500 watts is plenty of power for my Schroeder 1212 which is rated at 1000 watts.
     
  7. i think anything over 1000 is probably going to be too much for most bass players in bands unless your doing a stadium show and want every note to be heard FLAWLESSLY

    Why do you need the 310212? I think a better match may be that Yorky with the 21012.

    Greetings,
    Sorry, I thought you meant the 21012. I misread the cab designation. For the bigger cab you may want a little more wattage. But as stated above Jorg will set you straight.

    Counterpoint:

    Depends on how much volume you need/want.

    I haven't heard any of the Yorkville amps, but 800W into a 310212 should get pretty loud.

    I think we're mainly considering the cab's potential.

    You could always upgrade your power later if you felt you needed to.

    The main consideration to me is 'tone', with volume coming in at probably second place.

    The 310212 appealed to me because of its size mostly. I play in a heavy metal banded, with a 5 string tuned to A. Some shows we have PA support, other shows your on your own, so I wasn't sure if any of the smaller cabs would be able to stand up to the challenge.

    I'm very interested in the Yorkville because you can blend the clean and OD signals together, a trick that I use to get my tone. If you guys don't think the Yorkville would be up to the challenge I could also buy an Ampeg SVP-BSP and save up for a nice big power amp.

    Depends on the ultimate decibel level and your EQing (& possibly how much dynamic headroom the Yorkie has).

    [For instance, I wouldn't hesitate to use an Aguilar DB750 with the 310212 for that type situation, but that amp has balls to the walls headroom in its power amp section (& it's only rated at 750W@4ohm).]

    Jorg could probably give you a better idea.

    Jorgs cabs are very loud, clean and powerful. I use one 1212 with 500 watts through it with one guitar player using a marshall half stack. These cabs will suprise you, you might be better of with the Schroeder 410 cab, I hear that cab is loud and cuts like a knife.

    I love my 410 with its punch, solid low end, and EQ-friendliness.

    But...I think if I were doing all heavy metal, I would go for a 310212 or 21012 (or maybe a pair of 1210).

    What B.S. That's only the power rating. 800 watts should drive that cab past deafening volumes. It's got a 104db@1w efficienty for christ's sake!!! He'll have loads of headroom.

    I'm about to get this rolling by selling some equipment to buy the Yorkville, my current amp wont work with the Schroeder but the Yorkville will power my current setup.

    Right now I've got a buyer for my power amp, once that's sold I'm gonna sell my pre, a power conditioner and a wireless, plus some money from my pocket to cover the difference.

    Well, I wasn't sure so I refered him to Jorg. I cant imagine that 800 watts would not be loud thru any cab, lighten up Francis. ;)
