    Just got another Ron Anchak built fEARful 15/6/1. Wow. It is the first time I have really used it with my M9. Great pairing. :cool:

    Wish Ron was still building. I'd order a sub—which I actually don't REALLY need. :bag: :hyper: :eek:

    Ron's a good guy. And built cabs like a tank because of that coating. That's part of why he's out, he just had too much cost in it, not much profit.
     
  4. I say get in touch with Leland there, and order a 15sub flat pack. You may not think you need the additional speaker, but I can tell you there is some magic in a dual woofer set up.

    I'm getting ready to build a 15sub...
    I bought the 3015LF Domestique had in the same ad. :D

    Nice. If you haven't tried both at once, you're about to acquire true magic. :)

    One fEARful is great, two of them together are about 3 steps beyond awesome on stage.

    The substantial Line-X coating gives these cabs added strength, stiffness, anti-vibration damping, and well yeah, weight—plenty of that.
    No matter. Just think of it as fashionable but tough, like thick prickly faux rhino-hyde.

    How well do the 15/6/1 cross-overs work when paired with a fEARful sub115? :eyebrow:

    Fine. They're designed to work perfectly with each other. :)

    Wow, you're leaving 12 town and heading to 15ville?:) Are you going to run in your 12/6s Or is it for PA? Just curious.

    Depending on cost/size factor, what another 15/6? I think you'd have mirror the baffles, but the extra mid driver might help to keep up with those 15s. Almost like having a 66 but cut in half. :bag:
     
  12. You eq the mids etc relatively higher than the lows, job done. I believe the mid driver is overspec'd to allow for twin subs.

    My mid has a pad on it that's switchable. The pad is off when I use both cabs, its no when I use one. The mid has more than enough beef to keep up with 2 3015LFs.

    After years of preaching the 12/6 gospel, I guess it does seem heretical that I'm building a 15. :eek:

    It'll be strictly for PA use. I'm not even putting the low pass filter in it. I've been using one of my 12/6s as a PA sub (my band doesn't perform at war volume) and decided it's time to build a dedicated box for sub duty.

    Does Leland do LineX coatng instead of Duratex paint?
     
  16. I do not think he does, there are other builders out there though. One of them might consider a lineX coating, but you would have to contact them on a case by case basis or go over to the GB forum and start a thread.

    Yeah.
    You really want the sub under there
    It makes it way more than 100% more awesomer

    Nope. Closest linex dealer is 60 miles or so. TBH, I probably still wouldn't even if it was close. The cost was part of what got Ron out. Pretty hard to tack another 100 bucks or so onto an already premium cab.

    Duratex, which I use, is tough, durable, and easy to repair. It's just not bombproof like LineX.

    +1 I use Duratex on everything. It's kind of midway between paint and Line X: You never, ever need to repaint anything other than occasional dings, but it does get them. I also roller it on (I don't want a sprayer). After a little initial sticker shock, I realized a little Duratex goes a long way.
