what do you guys think the best 15 cab is without a tweeter?
At the studio where my band practices, they've got a couple of old-ish Marshall 2x15s, which have turned out to be very versatile, even though I'm used to 4x10s. Not small/light though.
I quite like my SVT 15e. Old school, fat and round.
You may also want to consider cabs with a tweeter that can be dialed both on or off - if the mood strikes. Best of both worlds.
If you want to save some cash---order Some Eminence Delta 15" Drivers online.
Then go to Home Depot and get some Pink Panther stuff and some gloves and a mask.
Then order some 15" Ported Bass cabs from Lopo Line
Put it all together at home-voila.
Cost is about 100 for the driver 200 bux for the cab
Pink panther stuff--I dont know, the dad had some around his shed
Mask gloves--10 bucks max.
This is what I did, X2 and I am having a blast with my setup--easy to carry...add casters=easy to roll, man.
All parts made in the USA too! +100 for patriotism.
Bag End S15L FTW!!!
Bag End S15-D...no tweet!
Bag End for sure!
do check out greenboy's 15+6 thread (putting you on the last page of this megathread.)
15 plus mid range driver... that's a good 15 without a tweeter !!!
"whats a good 15 without a tweeter?"
hartke's are pretty bright for not having a tweeter i run 2 with a biamp but with just the 500watt head there good out the gate with flat eq
Bag End S-15
whats a GOOD cab? you gotta set your standards higher dude!
Bagend though. all night.
15/6 is the only clear answer here.
That said, the only other thing I'd consider as a standalone 15 would be a Mesa Powerhouse 115, or a home built 3 cubic foot box with a Kappalite 3015 in it.
Bag End 15.
Greatest cab ever.
What? No one has mentioned the Aguilar DB 115? What is the matter with you guys?
In the good ole days I liked the sound of a JBL E-130. It has an extended range (compared to E-140). The marketing hype claims 50Hz-6kHz.
+1 on bright 15's. 'Good for steel guitar and melodic bass.
