Simplexx for Bass

#1 Post by unclemartha » Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:59 pm

So, I have decided to build two Simplexx Tilt Back 12's. I already have 2 Jack 10's. Plans for the Jack Lite 12 and a XF 212. I want to build something simple and I really like the traditional look of the Simplexx. Anyway, for bass use only, should I build the Simplexx with or without the tweeter? From what I have read I think I should build both with the tweeter. Am I right?

For the minor cost and effort, yes. Build with the tweeter and make them switchable on/off. If you don't like the sound, turn it off. Using it as a full monitor? Turn it on.
