Happy New Year!
Perhaps you could use your "big-bass mic" to mic a bass cab. as well?
(something is rattling like mad inside...)
...woofer on a short boom stand.
... I imagine that it would if it had a sealed back..
Looks great, much nicer that my cheapo speaker suspended in cardboard. QuotePerhaps you could use your "big-bass mic" to mic a bass cab. as well?I tried to take this idea one step further by using a dual voice coil speaker, driving one side with the bass amp and sending the other side to my console. Man, I really though I was clever until I listened to the results.
This raises another interesting question...In your typical bass reflex cabinet, you 'tune' a speaker box via a port to get your rolloff characteristics. Adjusting port lengths changes the resonant frequency of the speaker, so in effect if we want our subkick's 'tail' to wag at around 60 instead of 70hz, we make the proper volume box off the speaker spec sheet, then make an adjustable port that can lengthen via a sleeve, to drop or raise the speaker's Fs to a song's taste. This again is all assuming that speaker physics is the same going out as it is going in!
Have any of you guys found that the drum shell really makes a noticeable difference in sound. I imagine that it would if it had a sealed back, as that would mess with compliance and what-not.
