Time for a new cab build After the 210 with coaxial mid/high driver it's time for something totally different(and less complex). It's going to be a cab for my piccolo-bass, it should also be good enough as rehearsal/small-gig amp for regular 4-string basses. Concept should be simple, 1 driver, small, cheap and enough power for rehearsals and small jazz/blues/pop gigs. Since it's also a cab for piccolo bass it should not have a tweeter, cranking the mids could blow it up..... Because it's a tweeterless concept I need a driver that's not to big(better dispersion) and still can handle some power --> 8" driver. Options: -Faital pro 8 pr 200 -Beyma 8G40 -Beyma LW30 -Ciare 8.50ndw -Ciare NDC8-3 -Oberton 8MB201 The faital is to expensive and it's already used in the Crazy8 &88 (don't wanna be a copy-cat ) The Ciare's are also to expensive. The Beyma 8G40 is a great driver but it's also more expensive then the Oberton which has almost the same technical specs. For those who want to build the Piccolo8 and can't buy the Oberton then the Beyma 8G40 is the perfect replacement driver (it has slightly more top end but the Oberton probably has better dispersion so they won't sound very different) Conclusion, it's going to be the Oberton 8MB201 which costs a fraction of the Faital but will perform almost the same (the Faital can be tuned lower though but that's not necessary for 4-string). The cabinet will be horn-reflex, that's a ported cabinet but the port's mouth will be approx. 1.5 times the cone area. When optimally tuned it will perform slightly better then a regular ported cab. Here are some pics of the driver, I just picked it up at the importer.
