    Just found a link to some of the new Carvin BRX stuff over at Harmony Central...haven't seen a thread here about it yet. http://www.carvin.com/products/group.php?CID=BRX Looks promising--a powerful kickback 12" combo, lightweight Neo 2x10 (46#) and 4x10 (76#) Neo cabs. The B500 and B1500 heads have been getting some great reviews around here. A Carvin outlet just opened in Sacramento...I should head over and see if they've got any of these to try.

    I have the BRX12 w/the B1500 & this is a winning combination. Sounds like there's an 18" in the cab.

  5. Facing downward and to the front at a 45 degree angle, below the 12 that you see. You can just see a bit of the edge of the second 12 in that pic.

    Haven't played the new combos yet but am a big fan of the B1500 amp.

    Ahh.

    Mmm, I have never seen that before. Is this common and I have never noticed, or is this some fairly new thinking?

    I think that Sunn used to have a down firing 18" with a 12" on top straight ahead (I've been wrong before). And the Schoeder cabs are similar but they angle to the side.

    Been a big fan of Carvin for a long time. Reasonably priced. American made. Great customer support. I've had the Carvin R600 head, a 350W Carvin combo powering a single 15" (can't remember exact model number), a Carvin PA plus speakers (our monitors are still Carvin) and my 4x10 cabinet is a Carvin Red Eye. As far as amps go I'll vouge for both, in fact, I think the 350Watt head has a lot more punch, and I keep it in our studio space where I play it on a weekly basis. I've tried out the B1500 and I was really impressed. Main complaint about the R600 head is that it was too "heady", very clean, but difficult to dial in a nice punchy tone. B1500 was juicy and punchy. Good simple interface and easy to use. I was really impressed. Would have purchased, but I'm just really satisfied with my current set up. Hope this helps you.
