    Celestion F12-X200

    Ok so I have to be honest with everyone and say that the previews post was without much time playing around testing the speakers at bedroom levels...

    Pickup recomendation for a maple neck thru with alder wings guitar

    Yeha that's the thing, since I don't whant the specs of the unbranded pickup that it has now then I don't know how to improove/change the sound by changing pickups... thats why I want to give it a go with another pickups and based on those results I would decide.

    Custom-built cab for Celestion F12-X200

    So in another thread for the Celestion F12-X200 I posted a few pics of a cab that a luthier friend of mine is building for me using the design that Dr. Decibel posted to best use the new Celestion speaker. Since I don't have one of those speakers yet I'm using for now a Scumback H75-LD that I...

    The only reason why I said that is because you said that "t's more a volume difference than a frequency difference." so I'm just trying to wrap my head around that since Celestion has said since the beginning that the idea of this speaker is to have a wider dispersion and their cab design is a...

  72. Chiguete

    Celestion F12-X200

    Sounds like you are dialing the amps wrong and also not used to listen to them microphone+speaker tone that an IR captures... I know the feeling, took me close to 2 years to really dial crunch and not sound bad in my ears.
  73. Chiguete

    Celestion F12-X200

    @MicFarlow How did you powered the speaker since the crossover is internal so it don't need a two channel amp like on your other monitors?
  74. Chiguete

    Celestion F12-X200

    But that one has 2 channels and the Celestion F12-X200 has an internal crossover that only needs 1 channel o an amp with full range of frequencies.
  75. Chiguete

    Celestion F12-X200

    So this plate amplifier would be a great option then https://www.parts-express.com/act-15x-120v-amp-600-watt-full-range-plate-amplifier-120v--299-2346 ?

  79. Chiguete

    Getting rid of mic coloring, will it be possible someday?

    Will there ever be a way to get rid of the coloring that a mic makes to the overall tone of an IR? Maybe this is over simplifying it but maybe an EQ curve that cut/boots on what a type of mic adds?

    Does your band run mono or stereo guitars live?

    So one question for all of you, big time players like Petrucci and others that use the TC 2290 do they not use the phase invert on the signal and just go mono? I ask because I think this was one o the great features of this unit that I would belive they would like to recreate live too.
