15 inch guitar cabs
 
Anyone dealt with using a guitar cab with 15's in it? The only one that I know of is made by Randall. Thoughts? :confused:

I think there's a thread on this forum where someone asked the same question ;)

crunch 2005-01-20 11:26

I'll dig around.Thanks

Their nice if your tuning REALLY low. They make the lowend tighter. Not really worth the extra cost to me..

I think you got confused,cab meaning cabinet,not cables. :)

I would think that it would be smarter to buy some speaker cables for your cab compared to a guitar cable... well if you use guitar cables like mine.... if that's what you mean. Anyways, instead of buying a guitar cab with a 15 in it, buy a bass cab. Cheaper and will probably handle more. Of course, remember to compliment it with guitar speakers or you'll have no low end. That's what I'd do and only for real low tunings. Then again, it may sound better on the Randal... I don't know, I'll play through my friend's bass amp tomorrow.

DeathCS 2005-01-20 20:25

oohhh :stoned:
cabs
I thought it said Cables :p

Rapture 2005-01-20 22:48

but yes, CC, cables do matter. not a hell of a lot, but i bet you would notice the difference between a Groove Plugs cables and a Monster cable

BLS 2005-01-20 23:48

Cables make a huge difference. but thats not the point of this thread poo poo head

DeathCS 2005-01-21 00:24

Interesting. I've been using this $5 cable for about a year now, and your saying that if I get a quality cable my sound will be better?
That does make sense, I just never thought of that.

BLS 2005-01-21 00:26

Cheap cables are noisy and lose alot of the signal, they usually have alot of treble or alot of bass too... their just shit.

crunch 2005-01-21 14:03

yes, cabinets
 
I have tried the bass cab situation but to utilize the lowend on the bass speaker i have to pump the lows on my head and that pushes the 4 12s a little more than they like. I am looking at brutal punchy low end. Not fluffy rumbly crap.

xdislexicx 2005-01-21 16:40

my friend has a crate 2x15 cab... sounds realy good, his other cab is a carvin 4x12... never heard the thing by itself, but teamed up with a 4x12 it sounds really good.

as for the dude that said to use a bass cab.. don't... 15" guitar speakers are ment to handle the frequency ranges that guitars put out... 15" bass speakers are ment for instruments with lower frequencies, like :idea: basses.

crunch 2005-01-21 17:36

Maybe i will build one with a couple of 15 inch pa type speakers. That should handle the frequency range.thanks for the input, i'll let you know.
