Bass rigs-the bigger the better in my experience.

Recommended Posts

The daftest (really wished I had the photo!) was with the 600SMX in Bi-amp mode.

On the low side..

1 x Martin Audio 1x18" sub
1x Trace 1153 1x15"

And the high..

1 x Trace 1048H 4x10"
1 x Trace 2103H 2x10"

That was truly monsterous and entirely ridiculous!

I have 2 1x12" Bergantino cabs and I take one cab to rehearsals and small venues and it sounds good enough for me : ) Every time I life the things into my landy I'm glad I don't have anything even bigger - they're heavy enough as it is. If they were heavier I'd probably find an excuse and not leave home ever! :)

They could have put the ports at the bottom so more folk get the air. :D

The place we played last night, we had to go in the back fire escape. That was tricky with a 410. Coming out at the end of the gig, we discovered there were no outside lights. Trying to get an 810 down those would have ended really badly.

Yeah, 'shopped to death - look where her feet are, combined with the position of her shoulders. Either that, or she can stand in four dimensions...

Did anyone see the Mythbusters 'Subwoofer in a car' episode? Wasn't it 162 dB at 12Hz or such similar? Devastating! :D

I'd love to try the John Chambers 1000w valve amp too!

That the one where they put the 'speaker' on a drive shaft from the engine? Exceeded xlim and destructed. Bet BFM would rag on their db measurement.

Like 'em or lump 'em they're clever guys, check their hostories..

Personally I think they're great but would love them to revisit that 'myth' with a better built drive unit that doesn't exceed its xmech or shake itself to bits..

And considering it is duration of sound that does damage.

I think he'd have buy an industrial fan to cool it and a truck to move this one? Not sure its a 'practical' proposition..

It is one of the coolest things i've seen in a good long while.. B)
