Way Cool JR. I've actually looked into those. I haven't found them in my area tho. When you say you soldered it on your cable, do you mean that you bought one of those DIY cable kits?
tsk tsk tsk not even the guy from RATT.
4x12s are not "tuned" anyway. "Detuning" is a made-up thing. Pulling a pair of speakers has been done, but it doesn't give you "larger bottom end." Nor does disconnecting two of the speakers turn the unpowered pair into passive radiators. Made-up BS.
The speakers in a guitar cabinet drop off rapidly below 100Hz not because of the cabinet but because the speakers really don't support those frequencies. An RTA will tell you that.
Nope. You need to understand that speaker cabinets that are really ported:
1. Have speakers (drivers) that will actually support lower frequencies (most guitar speakers don't)
2. Have a cabinet sized for the specs of the speaker
3. Have a port that is specifically sized for the frequencies supported, and those are often slot ports or tube ports.
I have two 2x12 cabinets that have Eminence Delta Pro 12A speakers that support frequencies down to around 50Hz. But in order to do that, the cabinets are sized at around 3.5 cubic feet and have a pair of 4" diameter by 4" deep (approximately) tubular ports. Cabinet sizing and port configurations are determined in part from information provided by Eminence.
But wait, there's more. Producing enhanced bottom end also requires power. Both of my cabinets are powered with about 750W each. Steve Lukather and ISP Technologies designed the Vector SL cabinet, which is a 15" powered subwoofer designed to work with his 4x12 to help produce bottom end. Not only is there an additional 600W amplifier built into the cabinet, but there are also some electronics designed to strip the low end from his 100W tube amp signal and re-route them through the subwoofer, putting the mids and highs into his 4x12.
well, on the flip side, if you play lower frequencies and your cab produces LESS lower frequencies, your playing goes away. Seems legit.
That's why bass players all use cabs with 1" tweeters only. (sarcasm)
I say, pull the bottom speakers and try it out. Pay attention to your wiring and ohms for the proper load on your 6505+ and you're fine. Keep in mind that power handling will be slightly reduced based on the fact that there's less internal air pressure in the cabinet to give your speaker cones a nice sponge cushion for control. The remaining speakers will have more tendency to travel since there's less resistance. You can over extend your voice coils a lot more easily. It's a "free air" type setup for the speakers.
This thread has been hijacked OP abandoned it on post #8 once he got the answer he was looking for and probably bought the guitar, as far as the thread dying nobody made you come back and bump it.
Do those who find the Epi headstock disagreeable forget that Epi's headstock is part of Epi's identity? That shape has been around since the end of WW2!
Fender started Squier to stave off the Japanese "clones". They needed the Fender headstock on the Squiers b/c the Japanese were using the Fender headstock shape (for as long as they could). Squier wasn't created as a cheaper alternative to Fender, it was an alternative to the cheaper alternative that was taking sales away from Fender.
As to finishes. The best thing about nitro finishes, imo, is the wear and tear it shows still tells a story, even unplugged.
Gibson has made it clear in a number of "cease and desist" letters that they feel that the ordinary consumer could "confuse" a similarly headstocked guitar with the real thing, so they've made it a trademark issue.
This is one my bands songs, I recorded this demo with a Pepers Pedals RAD which has three clipping modes and sounds better than any ProCos pedals. I used to own a Deucetone RAT...
ProCo ones tend to "fart", they overload quite easily.
