Well if isn't the 5150 III you can get it for cheap, but in that case a 6505+ or a Vypyr tube would be better.

Hey guys, back again

I was wondering if anyone mass produced a 4x12 cabinet with an open back, or with ported sides, etc., just because, depending on the players settings, a 4x12 is a death laser if you step in front of it.

Thanks

mesa boogie made a 1/2 open 1/2 closed 4x12. i think VHT makes a straight open 4x12, so does bogner i think. i think there is a number of 'convertible' ob/cb cabs, the only one i can readily think might do that is avatar (doesn't help canadians)

you can convert any cabinet to open back, just make a new back board for it from baltic ply or mdf.

but if you are having beaming issues and you like most the other aspects of the cab then maybe you should use some beam dispersers.

http://www.webervst.com/blocker.html

they are supposed to disperse high freqs. i have never used them so i can't really speak on how effective they are. i should also mention that i have heard you can get a very similar effect by just placing tape on the grill of the cabinet in front of each speaker

I liked the Muff'n. Only had it three hours before it broke, but it sounded nice when working.

I still have it. Only got it because of the silly price, $50 a while back. Still watching out for those pedlulz with preamp tubes.

So (Ippon), I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy an Royal Atlantic in a couple days. I was wondering if my cabinet, a Blackstar HTV-212 would be able to handle it. It has an RMS of 160 watts, iirc, so 80 watts per speaker, and the RA is a 100 watt amp. Will these co-operate? What happens if I run two speaker outs of the RA at 8 ohms into the two 16 ohm ins on the 2x12? This is bad, right?

Yes, it'll handle the power. You'll want to run one cable, and match the impedance on the amp and cab.

Yeah, the RA has 8 ohm out, and the HTV-212 has an 8 ohm mono in. Now silly question, if it has an 8 ohm mono in, it is using BOTH speakers right? But only has one signal coming into the cab. I understand, but don't at the same time, haha.

Yes, it is using both speakers, they are probably wired parallel. Remember in school when they talked about series and parallel wiring?

Yes, both speakers will run. You would only use the stereo inputs if you were wanting to run more than one head.

I have a Marshall amp and an Mg412a cab (4x12 celestion speakers) and I've just bought a bass. Does anyone know if these speakers can handle bass frequencies safely? It will only be used in my bedroom so less than 1 on the volume. I'm not asking if it will sound good just if it will be able to handle it.

I have a 7-string in dropped A and a 6-string in dropped B and the amp sounds great to me (the low A on my 7-string is an A1, same as a bass' A string just for refence.).

Thanks guys.

Yeah, they'll be allright.
Though, the MG celestion speakers are a lot of stuff I will not list, and they'll not sound good in any case.

Seventy 80's will handle a bass? They barely handle guitar.

No one's posting questions to answer so I will!

When I switch my amp onto standby after playing the tubes will click a little and sometimes I will hear a little click about 10-15mins later - same sound.

Is this just the tubes contracting after the heat from play? Or should I be worried?

Are they even Seventy80's in the MG412 cab?
My old MG had custom designed speakers.

Anyway I didn't say it would have sounded good, just they wouldn't have been damaged.
