4 x 10", 350-watt bass speaker cabinet with adjustable tweeter.
I use it with a 100-watt tube amp.
Mine is a 4-ohm model.
The cabinet is a bit heavy but that's normal for such power handling...
When the tweeter is turned off the sound is great for normal playing. With the tweeter on the response is perfect for slapping.
Good dynamic range (but not exceptional).
Clear and accurate with a good amp, otherwise the speaker cabinet won't make miracles...
With my amp I've noticed overloads when the tweeter is fully turned on.
I use it for rehearsals...
I love that you can adjust the tweeter response.
I tested many other speakers. This one doesn't alter the amp's sound that much and it offers an excellent value for money. The speakers are very sturdy. You can find it secondhand at the same price as some budget competitor products which are much less reliable.
If I had to buy a new speaker cabinet I would choose the same one, except if I win the lottery.
I use this amp in u rehearsal studio with a head Peavey 450H.
But I have my gear propore: SWR Goliath III and Ampeg SVT4 PRo. My bass is a Fender American Deluxe Preceision 5 string 2001.
I was very surprised rendering the baffle. He gets very serious and has a very good potato despite fréquances rich enough that I send it. my sound is pretty close to Fieldy. For the record, Feildy started on this type of gear before switching to Ampeg. Look good clip Blind, if you have a doubt
So you'll easily this type of sound because the speaker is very robust. You can send it without risk of tearing the HP.
And it's cheap:! € 333 at Thomann
On the negative there is the weight! It is very heavy (about 50kg I think).
The fineness of the sound is not great for purists like me. Well, I'm used to the SWR also so good ....
I recommend this to any front baffle person seeking a (very) big sound in line with Fieldy and developping one pretty massive volume. While maintaining a budget. The value for money is the best I've tried.
+ The price (cheap)
+ The sound it produces massive
- The lack of smoothness of the sound (in my opinion)
Not too expensive and great quality.
I think it is very well for Mtal and funk as well as all the music calling for PCHE and power ...
I use an amplifier with T-Max in the same brand and I'm not really admit ...
Super dynamic sound great for slap and big attack ... with a power of 350W guaranteed a big sound for crazy big potato ... It does not sound quality combos prstige but allows for a super powerful amp for scne the bar and rptitions popping.
What I like: the small SETTING THE knob of the horn tweeter baffle derrire ...
I have but it costs us 400 to 600 or 700!
With exprience has allowed me to know that the better and have more amp to choose the best for each situation and c what I do!
A classic 10-inch 4 times:
4 HP 10-inch membranes treated with Kevlar
A 1-inch Horn Driver dbrayable,
Power 350 Watts into 4 or 8 ohm (there are two choice MODELS)
Connections: 1 jack 1 / 4 (that's all!)
Weight: 43.6 kg (ah a, must be two for the stairs ...),
Vinyl covering and grille mtallique vibration.
I bought this place for my stuff complter which consists of a Hartke 3500 head and a Trace Elliot 15-inch speaker 200 watts into 8 ohms.
In fact, I did jou than the 15 inches for two years because of funding, and that at a concert that a friend bassist prt me that in addition MODEL my stuff, and I really will appreciate the diffrence!
It's always best to test the new hardware with its own gear (bass + amp) That was in concert even if it was made directly under the nose (well, ears) and of s r, we can push the sound as you want!
In short, a few months later, so I chose the 8 ohm speaker in order to operate the head full power into 4 ohm.
Being accustomed for years an enclosure 15 inches, I must admit that the sound is somewhat "soft" uses only (4 times as many 10 inches).
But of all fawns, c'tait complter for my set and it is the happiness of bas-mdium/mdium Submitted really well, a sound warm enough if I say (Whereas the head Hartke), and the power that is!
Even when I have my bass prciser are awarded if the mid-r-I play the mtal, and fingers, well I have yet to saturate russi the HP!
No, srieusement, this chamber always keeps a clear sound, and The definition is impeccable, even in the low end.
Talking about the trunk of acute: dj you should know that it is a system that connects electronic protection which turns off the sound if they send too much power is apprciable .
Positive: a potentiomtre rgler allows the level of the trunk and especially to be able to REALLY put zero (which is not always the case),
Ngatif point: there are plenty of breath, and treble are a little too slammin limit ears hurt if you push too much potentiomtre.
Résumé in this forum is doing well on the head trs Hartke, and since I've never tried it on something else, I m'arrterais on the sound.
Bought new in 2002, it still works as well, one must prciser it is still in damp for 3 years, no problemo!
What is embtant I find is that the feet are cahoutchou soft dplacer not practical! I have removed and replaced with wheels, so much easier, could be a mountain home!
Modif Second ': connectivity, there is only unfortunate jack 1 / 4, and I like not the jacks! In fact, I replaced the speaker outputs of my amp with XLR for the sake of reliability (I had a problem with the jacks) and the Peavey, no options! I just added a XLR socket and you're silent jou (it's not too complicated either), but compared to my pregnant Trace Elliot (2 XLR jack and two male / female home) , did a little lightweight!
Now we have Whereas in this price range, I think it was worth the money, especially since the HP "Kevlar" is really not an illusion: I d Mount one (even two to set the wheels) and the thickness of the membrane is quite impressive, we feel the touch espce the fiber in addition to cardboard, so good for trs the quality of HP at Peavey.
on the other hand, they conomisent on wood: yes, it's chipboard "Kronoply" (large chips), but there are wool / acoustic foam on parrois.
Finally, I would say I like this forum, I learned to do over time, and I'm not the sound it sends me.
