: have any of you ever used bass cabs that contain 12-inch drivers?
: what are these dudes like? tight? loose? what end of the frequency do they focus on?
: there's a guy selling a pair of Marshall 4x12 bass cabs about an hour's drive from me and I'm thinking about checking em out
12" speakers aren't so usual with bass cabs, but I quess they make a nice compromise between 10's and 15's. I've liked 10" speakers the best but it really depends on the player at hand. I quess a simple guide line would be:
The smaller the speaker size the clearer the tone, the bigger the speaker size the bassier the tone.
All in all I think you definately should check them out IF they aren't too expensive. If you can get them cheap, get them both, it's great not to worry about power.
