    Finally had a brief opportunity to play with a Goliath 4 today and to listen to one of my students playing a set through it. Initial reaction - seemed a bit punchier than my Goliath 3 although this could be a result of a new speaker being "tighter" before it was played in; good projection and space filling ability. I was, however, quite concerned that it seemed to fart out quite early with a bit of bass boost - a problem I have never had with my 3. Don't want to get sidetracked into heads, suffice to say that I have often played the same head through my Goliath 3 without any problem. It was solved by cutting back the bass, but nevertheless I perceived it as a point of difference between the two cabinets. I understand that while Fender has upped the power rating they have also changed the drivers to Eminence speakers, so this could result in the perceived difference. Anyone with a similar experience?
     
  2. I have actually found the opposite there. :eek:
    today i plaed i gig using my new Goliath 4 and an SM 900 head. The sound was phenomonal, sweet and pure. just how i like it. I have borrowed a Goliath 3 before but never used the same head with one so i cant say for sure but i think it may have just been the head that you were using?

    Im loving this setup and im thinking of adding either another Goliath or a Son Of Bertha, or even a Big Bertha if the Sm 900 can take 2Ohms (which i doubt?) :confused:

    You can do it, but only in stereo mode.
