Ok, it's been a while since we've done this. We all have different tonal goals and settings, but its always fun to see what people are using to amplify their Dingwall Basses with! This is a chance to post up your current amp/cab/bass setup. If you use effects, don't forget those either!

Dingwall Zebra 1/Voodoo with my fEarful 15/6+15/Sub setup. For now the head is a Markbass LMII, but I have one of the new Peavey IPR 4500 power amps on order. That should give me just north of 2kw of power on tap most of the time.

LET'S SEE 'EM Everyone!

Maybe we should take this over to Off Topic Discussions.

I'd love to have a smaller more rational cab building thread, the threads over on TB can get pretty deep.

The next build I'm calling the TL-606 LF. 3015 LF in an expanded TL 606 box, at about 5 cubic feet, it should have room for a mid, if I want to go that way in the future.

I think I'll incorporate some of the Greenboy bracing on the larger panels and in the port shelf.

What, exactly does the -12db low pass do?

I'm good with wood, but a little weak on the electronics. Luckily the infamous Passingwind, of TB's greenboy threads is a close neighbor, so I can get some help and parts there.

Thanks, and I'm off to start a new thread in Off Topic.

Charlie is a super nice guy, and would think that he'd happily help you with any electronic stuff you may need. I've had some dealings with him and have only great things to say. The same with the mysterious Greeboy...I've talked with him by phone once or twice, and he's both friendly and knowledgeable. I think you're on the right track with a box that's braced similar to the fEarfuls and you may be pleasantly surprised with what the 6" will do for you. To me it was a bit of an a-ha moment that left me asking why we don't use a mid-speaker as a standard.

The crossover that was put together between Greenboy, Charlie (Passinwind) and Duke (Audiokinesis) for the 15/6 is a 2nd order crossover, meaning that it rolls off at a rate of 12db per octave at the given crossover frequency. First order crossovers roll off at a rate of 6db per octave. So, the slope is fairly steep where it rolls off between the 15" and the 6". The crossover consists of a low pass for the 15" speaker and a high pass for the 6" speaker. Thus the 15sub only needs the low pass portion, but tuned to a lower frequency.

The end result of this is that Sheldon's basses sound FREEEEEKIN' AWESOME. Because they're so clean and clear and tight down low, if you have speakers that can go that low and stay clean and loud, it's pretty amazing.

[quote="BasicSituation":2gtf74yn][quote="RichC123":2gtf74yn]I've been thinking of bi-amping. I would probably add an 18" or the Accugroove 21" speaker to go along with my 8x8". I would send the lows to the 21" and the mids/highs to the 8x8".

Anybody here have experience with bi-amping? How did you like it?[/quote:2gtf74yn]

I don't have any personal experience but Bagend is supposed to be the bomb. They have a rack mount signal processor/crossover that will hit 8hz(well below audible) with an their 18". The people that I know that use it say it's the cleanest thickest sound possible, and would never try any thing else. [/quote:2gtf74yn]

I used to use them. I had a few from a double 10" up to a Quartz (Quad 18") Then I'd run either some Euphonic Audio or Bergantino stuff. The problems is that I was competing with the PA systems and the sound guys were not always happy.... Long story.

Anyway - I am now using PJB cabinets which overall seem to have a more balanced tone. Thought about that 16 Horn cab but.... got a 6 Pack and that's where I'm staying. I let the PA handle the crazy loud lows... Although I've heard that I was levitating with the Quartz on some occasions - I didn't notice...

Quarts? I'll bet the sounds guys weren't always happy, that's like 275lbs of air moving madness, I'll bet most FOH engineers were jealous.

I will say that most clubs had never heard anything like it. It was quite a shock.

I can only imagine. I had the pleasure of playing through a couple of S18b-d and a Q10bx-d together....good times but it would be a tough haul(still not nearly as heavy or bowel-punishing as the Quarts!)

I never get tired of posting these lovelies with the "fridge". Just what is needed for a gentle compelling worship song.

Greetings from Bulgaria of all owners Dingwall!
This is my modest setup

Thanks!
Use the full 1200 watts of amplifier (Schroeder 800 watts / 8 ohms + Bergantino 400watts / 8 ohms) and separates them if I can react according to the situation.

I used to use a combination of a Berg and a Schroeder as well...in my case it was a HT115 with a 1212 on top. You can get pretty loud!

Just another hugely +ve thumbs up for the custom 15s based on the fEarful design discussed extensively on Talkbass. For those who may not be aware of these-they're based on a special, long-throw 15 that handles more power and, in conjunction with good box design, goes lower than "normal" 15s. It has a crossover to a 6" midrange and can be made with or sans tweet. Mine is made by LDS and very similar to the one posted by the Burnin' One. It's 8 Ohms and rated at 600 watts and can take the full 600. It's lower, much clearer and just might be a tad louder than my old Epi 310 (it's that extra woofer excursion that milks far more out of it than a conventional 15). At under 700 bucks and less than 50 lbs, this is the best cab I have ever played by a very wide margin, with any head I've used it with (Mesa M9, Walkabout, iAMP Pro). It seems like the natural partner to a Dingwall. I can't imaging Burnin's setup with another 15 sub underneath it :-)

Nice - is that the one from GuitarX? If so I was just looking at that on their site a few moments ago. My favourite.

Yep, it is. I recommend GuitarX if you are in the market for a Dingwall. Very awesome to work with.
