Re: Jack 15 TKOs Peavey

Had the official weigh-in this morning.....

Jack 15 - 53.2 pounds

Amp - 15.2 pounds (although it feels much lighter than this)

The Jack 15 is a bit unwieldy to carry. The balance is good, but it's still heavy.

Re: Jack 15 TKOs Peavey

Wow, beautiful work! I am envious. Good looking pro work! A very appropriate selection all the way around too. That cab will let the TKO be all it can be for a bass rig. Sweet! 65 Jazz Bass...too cool. I once had an opportunity to acquire a 61 Jazz Bass and a blond piggyback Bassman (2x12 cab) for ...

Re: Trying to find some Jack 15 pics

A friend of mine still has a pair of the Internationals in his studio for practice.....decent sounding boxes....just heavy.

I was surprised at the lack of xmax on those drivers - especially since they are in all of their bass cabinets.

Re: Trying to find some Jack 15 pics

Well, not being a bass player, I've just played through it for a few minutes. The owner will be picking it up when he gets back from vacation.....then we'll see if we did good or not.....

Re: Jack 15 TKOs Peavey

:clap: Impressions? I played a '65 Jazz through it....sounded fine to me....I'm a guitar player, so what do I know? I had it sitting up on my work table. The low E sounded full and solid with the amp pretty much set flat. I think it can take everything that the TKO can put out.....but, I didn't pus...

Re: Jack 15 TKOs Peavey

Okay....time for a wrap up.... Mike thought we were using the Black Widow......but, that's just too damned heavy. So, we got him a 2515 to put in there. Installed with 1/4" Lag screws with flat washers and lock washers. IMG_2690.JPG Then it was time to slap on the back with 32 screws spaced every 2 ...

The big question is do they look like they will work? :noob:
Kinda' like asking, "Can you hear if my shirt and pants match?" :mrgreen:

Without much more detailed pics - you'll have to just hook 'em up and listen.

But, I'm guessing they are fine....

Re: Bass reflex 18 more efficient than a Tuba 24?

I just bought 5x5 1/2" Baltic Birch for $29.99 a sheet.......5 miles from my house.....I could run into San Antonio and save a couple of bucks a sheet....I guess we have it pretty good here.

Re: Bass reflex 18 more efficient than a Tuba 24?

How about because I could build it 16 inches wide to fit the top box I was going to use. I had plans from someone who knows more than me about building speaker cabs. I liked my T39s, so I figured I'd like the T24 - and I do. If I wanted to learn speaker building software or build a square box with a...

Re: Wire Gauge for Speakers.

I don't now or have ever owned a 100 foot speaker cable.... Nor should you. Even if the resistance losses are tolerable with that much length capacitance and inductance both will result in significant high frequency losses. What's a reasonable maximum length? The shortest length of cable to get to ...
