XF 210 for Bass?

#1 Post by t8bloom » Wed Sep 30, 2020 11:29 pm

Hi, has anyone tried using an XF 210 for a small bass rig? I'm planning to start a build for guitar cab soon, but I'm curious if I could use the same design for a lightweight bass cab also.

Hey, Welcome to the forum. I'm Seth. Looks like we're neighbors :thumbsup:

I don't play guitar or bass. However, I'll share with you my intuition on the subject since no one else has poked their heads in yet.

Obviously, you can play a bass through a guitar amp. You just wont get much bass. I'd think if you wanted an easy to build dual purpose rig, you'd want to look at something like a Simplexx 10 PA Top or a Jack 10... something that will cover most of the frequencies of each instrument.

Just my 2¢. Maybe some of the other guys that play will chime in. We'll see what they'd recommend.

XF210 would be OK for bass for bedroom practice, but that's about it.

Thanks much for the insight! I'm not so much looking for a dual-purpose rig, as much as a make two of the same cabs for different purposes. I'll get through the first one for guitar and then look at the other options for bass when I get there. I appreciate the alternatives!

Cabs ideal for guitar and cabs ideal for bass are even further from each other than are guitars from basses.
