Mystery Trace cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by megadan, Jan 9, 2009.

  1. Checked the plates on the back, all the info (impedance, model #) is worn off.

    Any clues what the model number might be so I can google it? Looks like it's prewired for biamping, and full range with XLR jacks.

  2. Looking through some old TB threads, it looks like this might be an 1818X
    Matches the google image results.
    The low power handling (200W) and the odd impedance (8 ohm low and 16 high, but an 8 ohm rating in full range mode?) worry me a bit. Does anyone have experience with this with larger amps?

    I don't really need another cab, but you can't beat the price... $0!

    It looks my 1810, which was an 18, a 10, and a horn. It was marked 8 Ohms full range, I forget the wattage but it was low. I've seen pictures of other similar looking cabs with different model numbers, I don't know the differences. I can't remember if mine was biampable or not. I do recall the only way to run it full range was XLR; I still have the adapter somewhere. Good sounding cab, but the grill buzzed like crazy.

    I remember the local self proclaimed "Trace Elliot Expert" decreed that my cab did not exist, but he was a moron. The horn sounded nice, the first one I ever liked. The 10 was in its own chamber.

    Forgot this. It's an 1810; I couldn't tell from your picture if the cab in question has a horn.
