    maybe it is just the room but,
    when i turn my amp up it just doesn't have the definition that it usually has, but i am also using a pa head.(amp is on back order.)
    it is a 215 212 carvin cab.
    i had a 410 before this i like the 15's better. but it just muddies up.
    what should i do?

    and also how can i check the ohms?
    it says 2.6. but i was told that it is 8 ohms.

    cts speakers. good bad? any problems? aren't these the speakers that ampegs used?

    What kind of speaker cables are you using? Too long and thin?

    What muddies up the 215, 212 or the 410 you use to have?

    and also how can i check the ohms?

    If it says 2.6 ohms then it probably is.

    I haven't seen any CTS speakers since my old Kustom 200. They sounded great.:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Nice to know Munji still throws his cyncism around even when I'm not here :D


    Mopar....15's NATURALLY have less definition than 10's. Most people use a combination of 10's and 15's because 15's give the low end rumble while 10's give the chest-hitting definition. Your 15's will never be as defined as your 10's were.

    yes i do know that but i was hoping that the 12's would help that.
