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!

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!

[quote="singlemalt":1tx6n7e6]Another fEarful up and running. I just finished a 12/6 cube. It sits exactly on my 15/6/1, where it looks and sounds bitchin! I tried the two together Friday night at practice. It was more than I needed, and I've been trying to tame some band volume problems, so I unplugged the 15/6/1 and just ran the 12/6. When everyone remarked on how clear, powerful and deep the "big rig" was sounding I just smiled and waved. The 12/6 did just fine all on it's own. I can carry it up the stairs to the studio with one hand. 37 lb. Total cost for materials was well under $300. Sneaking some shop time in was the tricky part. Here it sits on a mutant sub, a TL-606 cab with enlarged ports loaded with a 3015LF and Greenboy's "cheap but good" heavy duty lowpass. I'll be building the fEarful spec sub soon, and everything will stack perfectly. The 15/6/1 and sub work great together, the 12/6 and sub is a little scooped sounding. This is the difference between the $30 Alpha 6A mid and the much more expensive 18 Sound 6ND410, with a horn. I expect the 12/6 to carry most small room gigs, anything with good FOH support, and all my practice trips. The AB-1 six string, now sporting Payson's great sounding nickel strings.[/quote:1tx6n7e6] Nice. It's gonna look even better once you add that 15/sub to the bottom of those two. :wink:

[img:rj2u3rd3]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5262/5750236464_592ec365a5_b.jpg[/img:rj2u3rd3] Normally I don't use all four 1x12" cabs together - two are sufficient for almost everything I do. I use them in pairs in 2 different rehearsal rooms. But since I had them all at home during the weekend, I hooked them up and took a picture. 8)

[quote="BurningSkies":1rrgz6e2]Nice! I didn't even realize that Flite was still producing cabs...[/quote:1rrgz6e2] I think Flite is still basically a one-man operation. They have redesigned their lines, and have added options like stained wood cabs. This speaker configuration is basically a prototype that I'm testing for Gerry at Flite. These are the first 2 cabs of the new 210 model. So far so good. Mark

Here's my latest rig. I needed a powerful setup that would fit in the trunk of my Challenger. I chose 2 Flite Sound 210 500w cabs, 28 lbs each. The lightweight Carvin head pumps 450w into each cab. The entire rig weighs just about 70 lbs, and fit's neatly into the trunk with room to spare for other stuff. The rig has been able to hold it's own with a loud classic rock band, so far. Mark

[quote="TwoPort":op06lhm7]I will say that most clubs had never heard anything like it. It was quite a shock.[/quote:op06lhm7] 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!)

[quote="TwoPort":3cu6jm6v] 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. [/quote:3cu6jm6v] 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.

[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...

No pix with a Dingwall yet. I don't necessarily agree with the political sentiment, BTW. I did have a rig that had a sticker that said "Tattooed White Trash" on it. Picked the sticker up in Central Florida....no offense, Bubba. I love the South. :) Mark

[quote="BurningSkies":2sey3isw]Nice! How do you like the 8x8? Twice in the past day I've been asked by different people what I think of 8x8 cabs. I really haven't played many of them...[/quote:2sey3isw] I really like the 8x8. It has a lot of clarity without losing the bottom end. Not as boomy as a 8x10. With my whole setup, I was really shooting for clarity of tone so that each note could be heard distinctly. The 8x8 really helped me achieve that... but I think the Dingwall has a HUGE part to play in it as well. :-)

I also have another 12 that goes with it if needed, but I usually use just one. [img:1muntsez]http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w267/Smallmouth_Bass/MRoD001.jpg[/img:1muntsez]

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1y0dde3y]Just to be clear, didn't you build those cabs yourself Bill?[/quote:1y0dde3y] Hi Sheldon, That’s partly true. I don’t have any woodworking tools and I live in a flat, so I don’t have the room for the actual woodwork (it’s high on the list of house requirements for both my girlfriend and I as we look).
