    I use the poweradd pilot pro 2 - based on a recommendation on another thread few years back. Don’t know if it’s blessed by Phil but has worked fine for me. Many hours of backyard fun on a charge. In fact I’m about to head out and enjoy a beautiful NorCal afternoon with it!

    Sorry no pics just yet.

    First rehearsal with (1) C8 powered by BP-800 was impressive. I worried a bit about how much the cones jump, but once I stopped watching them it was fine. Smooth, clear, balanced. My B string sounds like the rest of the set now.
     
  4. I hear you about the cones jumping. I still remember thinking I was breaking something the first time I used my 6t and 9b at full-gig volume. Any other brand of cab moving like that and I'd think it was already broken, but it kept doing it for 10 years without issue. One of my band's music videos even used a few shots of the speaker just pulsing when I palmed the strings.

    Here's the video if you're curious.

    Probably has to do with the distance traveled relative to the speaker diameter which makes it look really far compared to larger diameter drivers.

    Thanks for that link about the C4! I would be all over that if it had the newer cones with the chrome tips. That’s a great deal. My OCD won’t let me mix drivers and I don’t want any foam in front of my speakers

    I have two C4s with the newer chrome center caps. I bought a c8 used with the older drivers and it didn't have the clarity of the newer piranhas and I resold it.

    I’ve already got a number but I had a bit of a GAS attack.... It's the older C-4 with Piranhas underneath an Ampeg PF-500. 2019-07-15 18.06.48.jpg
