On this second build I have only fitted the woofer and connected directly to it.
I think it's time to try a different woofer.

Check out his comments on the same box.....he just posted a review today.

Re: QSC 3102 or 3602 for 4x T48 subs?

Why the Lab over the 3015LF? 3015 is lighter and cheaper with essentially the same output, especially if you limit to 50 volts. Thanks Bruce. Well, you bring up a great point if I go with the 3601. It likely would make sense to do exactly as you say. However if I did go with the 3602 I can run it u...

Re: Simplexx 1x12 questions

I've tried the cab with a Trace Elliot Series 6 GP7 and an Ashdown RM800. I've played around with the EQ but it just sounds bland, there is no punch, if I slap the open E it's just a muffled thud. I'm going straight in. That's strange.....if you rule out the cab and the head......have you tried a d...

Re: QSC 3102 or 3602 for 4x T48 subs?

I have the opportunity to buy some QSC PLX amps that are in decent condition. Haven't been on the road, perm install use. Seller has both 3102 and 3602. I'm thinking of picking up 2x3102s, one for subs, one for tops (DR250's I'll build later). For subs I'm planning to build 24" T48's loaded wi...

Re: Simplexx 1x12 questions

Thanks for your reply Bruce. PL Premium isn't available in the UK as far as I know. I used a PU expanding wood glue. I had plenty of squeeze out, but wanted to make sure I didn't have air leaks, so ran caulk along the joints inside. I am leaving the EQ flat. Adding bass just makes things worse. No ...

Re: Simplexx 1x12 questions

I finished my cab last year and unfortunately was far from happy with the result. The overall sound I would describe as flabby, lacking definition and very mid/treble focused. Bass response was very poor and distorted. I have 2x 3012HO drivers and the results were the same with both. I decided to t...

Re: Bassist in NY, loud aggressive music

Playing through that Fender head, you'll probably not want to go below 4 ohms Back in the day we ran Fenders at 2 ohms all night long with never a complaint. Tuba amps have maximum impedance loads, not minimum. Yep. My concern was trying to push that many drivers with that head playing punk at ear-...

Re: Bassist in NY, loud aggressive music

Based on the frequency range you mentioned, I'd go with Jack 12s instead of 15s. The 12 will go down where you want to and is much easier to transport. Build a couple of those.... Playing through that Fender head, you'll probably not want to go below 4 ohms, so it's either build just two cabs or you...

Re: 4x10 or 4x12 Bass Guitar Cabinet Plans

You are correct, I’d like it to look and sound good. I play a J-bass, decided on a Bugera Veyron BV1001T amp. Play R&B, Jazz, Pop, some Christian music. Although a novice bass player, I grew up with some fairly serious artists and listen to music at a reasonably high level. I’m also pretty well...

Re: Are 24 x T60-LAB15s Enough? ;)

Joinery Options Pocket screws? 90 degree screws? Dowels? Pins/brads? I know there are many options. I am looking for the best balance between strength, aesthetics, and speed. Ideally, these cabs will be way, way, way stronger than our old ones. Also, they will look better - hopefully nothing but ma...

Wow, I wish I had a fancy turntable like that! Then I could hear every pop, crackle, and scratch on a 50 year piece of crappy vinyl that can't reproduce much below 70hz....
