Markbass Minimark 802 - adding an external speaker cabinet.

Recommended Posts

I have a Markbass 802 and would welcome some advice in adding an external speaker cabinet.

The power is given as 150W @ 8ohms/250W @ 4ohms. The connection to an external speaker cabinet is for an 8ohms impedance.

Can anyone recommend an external cabinet? Is it preferable to use a Markbass cabinet and, if so, which ones can be used?

I’m not much of a technician when it comes to amp speak.

You can use any 8 ohm cabinet rated for ~ 150Watts plus.

The choice of cabinet will affect the tone, a matching Markbass cabinet is likely to have the smallest change in tone.

Something that has the same configuration  would probably be a Traveller 102P, but it would make quite a tall stack and the two do not match sizewise.

TBH I'd sell the 802 and buy a CMD121P and a wedge stand and you get 300 watts in the 12 " speaker with the option to upgrade 2 a 2X12 rig by adding a NYC121 cab later.

I've had an 801,802, Ninja 102 250, LMII and LMIII with Traveller 102P and 115P and my go to is the CMD121P

Thanks Stub Mandrel and yorks5stringer for your advice and comments.

I must admit that I was thinking whether to sell the 802 and get a higher wattage bit of kit, as on half to three quarter volume I get ‘fart-out’ from the speakers when VPF is set at max. I do like a real thumpy bass, so I’m probably expecting too much from the 802! 

I shall look up the CMD121P, as I do quite like the Markbass products.

The CMD121P is a nice little amp, capable of much more than would be expected.
