: have any of you ever played through cabs loaded with 12-inch bass drivers?
: what do they sound like? bassy, middy?
: and what about the response...tight? loose?

: thanks, cameron


Cameron, funny you should ask. I play through an old Peavy cabinet with 4 12" Black Widow speakers. It has always sounded great, crispy highs, not muddy at all. Plenty of clean low bass, It handles my 6 string fine. I have heard in the past that 12" are not good for the bass frequency, but I love this old cabinet and will always take it to smaller gigs and such. One thing I like about it(and i really hav'nt thought too hard about it) is I can play all night clean and punchy, but then when i really get into the bass, I can drive just a bit of natural distortion into those speakers and they sound fantastic. anyway......thats my story.............peace
