    I just purchased a VOX AC100 CPH head and a VOX AD412 CABINET.



    The cab is stock. what I want to know is I have used it a few times without incident. I dont play with a lot of low end anyway but are there 12" speakers I could put in that would be better at handling the bass frequency? I dont want to blow these speakers and I LOVE VOX tones.

    Basses that are used are DAN ARMSTRONG, HOFNER CAVERN, RICKENBACKER 4001.

    I'm not very familiar with VOX, but is that head a BASS amp or just a guitar amp?
  3. I was once very familiar with VOX but thought that they were basically out of business. Whatever, both units seem to be GUITAR oriented and not for bass.

    Making a successful bass enclosure is more than swapping out the individual drivers for bass versions.

    It will work fine at a moderate volume. When you hear speaker distortion, ease up on the volume. Eminance 12s [used by Avatar} will handle more power for bass guitar.

    The difference between a guitar cab and a bass cab are much more than just the speakers. You have a very nice guitar rig with what it is now, but not a very good bass rig under most any circumstance. It would be easier/cheaper to just get a bass cab to pair with the guitar head, or just get a bass rig if you wish to play at any real volume. Those guitar spkrs can get shredded quite easily with a bass plugged in.

    The head is a guitar amp but sounds great with my basses. I was looking at eminence 12 so thanks for the info.
