Does anyone use this cab as a standalone?
Hows it sound?
What head are you using?
i HAVE used it as a standalone.
when i use it by itself i normally bridge my DCM1000 mono into it (1000 W). if i run it as one channel it's way too quiet, so that i might as well bring my goliath jr, but for gigs where i need to be loud and hit lots of low stuff, and i don't want to bring 2 cabs...you do what you gotta do.
i don't like it by itself though, the crossover makes it sound kinda wierd - i can't really describe it. but throw a goliath jr on top of it and you're SMOKIN.
It seems to be more amp-dependent than a lot of cabs. I like it with a Bass 750 alone. Otherwise, I agree with W5S, you need to drive it with another cab. I've had it sound terrible with Eden amps. Go figure. Hit it with a lotta watts and it'll sound better, IMO.
The Triad has really low SPL (96 dB or sth.).
To use it as a standalone you have to hit it with a lot of watts to hear yourself, but you can overpower it pretty easily.
I'd recommend using it in conjunction with a 2x10 or 4x10.
Sound really good though.
But I still wish I had bought something else instead.
Warwick5s, i am have a similar rig, (no i am not copying ) it just so happened i got a jr. for $275 and on its way is a carvin r1000. I've been looking for a good 4 ohm cab with a 15 in it, and i saw the triad. What kinda sound do you usually get with the
jr on top of the triad?
i run it with the tweeters both on half way and get a very clean, full, punchy, warm sound. great growl, big bottom....
but lots of that has to do with my IOD (which is STILL broken BTW...time to make another post)
