Whats Bag End?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by LizardKing45, Jan 7, 2001.


  1. Just like the subject said. I have been seeing lots about bag end.. especially with 18" speakers, so im guessing it has to do with sound and or speaker size (duh!).. Clue me in!

    My S15B-D cab lists for $690 retails for $530, and I got it used for $300. I got a good deal I think...cause it is in pristine condition.

    for bag ends i like one of the Af1a-r or something like that, it has an 18", 10" and a tweeter.

    the problem with an 18" is it takes about five feet to hear the sound, but the sound travels a long way, plus they control low notes, but the 10" and tweeter counter act the 5 foot thing because they have shorter waves. With that you can get full sound that travels long distances. That's why every cab needs a 15-18. That bag end cab is one of my favs, out of the ones i played and heard.

    I like "LA Woman" the album because it has Jerry Sheff on it. :) :)
