Questions about S12 for bass guitar...

#1 Post by nosajwp » Tue Oct 06, 2020 1:33 pm

Between the 2512, 3012HO and 3012LF, which would you recommend for bass guitar use? How about the tweeter...APT80 or BGH25?

I'll be using this with a 5 string bass, but don't expect them to reproduce the 31 Hz fundamental...I typically use a 50 Hz HPF, so I would want good representation of the 62 Hz harmonic and above.

What is the port tuning for the S12 when used with the 2512, 3012HO and 3012LF?

Also, what is the mechanical/thermal power handling for the S12 with each of these drivers?

The S12 tuning is 45Hz. The plans note the differences between the recommended woofers and why the BGH25-8 is best for electric bass. Thermal power ratings for various drivers may be found on their respective data sheets.
