With what???? Water? Cheerios? Confetti?
I like to fill MY amp with a tasty goodness . . .
I like to fill my amp with butter, makes my Yamaha sound a little more smooth.
As in a kick drum??
maybe that's what's wrong with mine- it's full and all the good notes fell out.
Now that made me laugh!
haha good one
ok i'm sorry tere is a bunch oh idiots on this site, but i meant should you fill your cab with as much watts as possible. For example (this is for the slow people) one owns a 900 watt cabinet and say that person buys a 350 watt amplifier to play through it. Or (what i'm trying to get at) buy an amplifier that goes to or is around 900 watts? Now those out there that can tie their own shoes my answer this question....because that already have answered only have straps. Thanks in advance, unless your a Donkey, or a certain kind of penguin.
Instead of taking the time to insult everyone, spend it making your question clear and your spelling correct. You'll get better advice and you won't leave yourself open to ridicule.
Wow, I wouldn't go around saying things like that. Some of the people who responded on this thread are some of the most respected and knowledgable of this site, and by making such a broad assumption of the competence of the members of this site I would reckon that you won't get too much help from anyone. By the way, they were joking, lighten up a bit and everything will be alright. Next time make your question more clear and you won't get people joking around as much.
Everything is gravey
Oh geeze...this started off as one of the funniest threads I can remember reading on TB.
Edit: To answer your question, it's all about the sound you're after. When I'm using a solid state amp, I like to have some extra power to spare. Your cab's rating is kind of a safety guideline. It can handle more, but may not always be that wise to push more. Therefore, with a solid state amp, I like to use an amp that will deliver, say, 500 watts at 4ohm, when the cab is rated at 350 or 400 and is 4ohm. On the other hand, I like to drive a tube amp to get some of that natural compression. I run 300 watt 8ohm cabs on either side of my amp, which delivers (appx) 200 watts per side.
Hope that was sort of what you were looking for. Everyone is going to be different, of course, and I suggest you find what your ears like best, and calm down!
Hey, is there a MOD in the house? We could use a shovel over here.....
STOP responding to this thread peeps, play bass instead.
Idiots? I only count one
man, this forum is full of people who have tons of experience and its probably the best forum to get advice from well informed members... considering the fact that nobody knew what you were talking about, id say the problem is yours
I love it when the kid who can't spell/use grammar calls others idiots...
Yeah, gotta love it.....considering the guy's full explanation, he even got his own question wrong.
Perhaps he meant "Should You Fill Your Speaker Cabinet"?
Please allow me to be the first to nominate you for King of Idiots!
All those in favor say aye.
Anyway, to answer your question, I fill all my amps with insulating foam from a spray can. It eliminates spurious resonances, and corrals stray electrons. Works bitchen.
