Funny thing
But only needing one, this impressive 15" is affordable
Impressive 16mm Xmax(p-p)
And deep bass is possible with 31hz Fs
And its a low distortion motor design, and huge magnet, which means tight controlled deep bass notes
Its a genuine tough pro woofer, one of the best

Well, it is a sub driver(pro), recommended no higher than 450hz
Probably wont do voices too good

But question is, what does it matter with bass guitar?

Ofcourse it will need some support higher up
A cheap mid/tweeter horn
Or a small 6-8" with good topend
I have those 4 Foster super tweeter, which could be added high up

Last weekend I was in Stockholm and wanted to try one of these:

www.woodoguitars.se

Unfortunately the dealer in Stockholm only had a fretless B6 left (six strings AND fretless is like fighting two battles at once I think) and the owner of Woodo (who is a nice guy BTW) was in Finland during this time.
Another affordable one I was looking at is the Cort Artisan A6. It is a little more expensive than the Woodo but it has two trussrods (Woodo only uses two of them for the seven string versions) and Bartolini electronics.

Regarding low bass out of 10" there are two things:

1.) Yes, some 4x10" user a rather large box and low tuning but this is still detrimental to efficiency at the lower end. Most of these cabs do sacrifice low-end response for better efficiency above (it has to be portable, affordable and loud after all).

2.) These 10" drivers do not necessarily have to be stock
PA midrange drivers. If you order dozens or more you can have drivers manufactured to your specs.

Personally I don't like the sound of most bass rigs that much. I think a live gig is recognised from far away as being live because the bass usually sounds crap. IMO bass for grown-ups is not felt in the chest but in the bowles and makes your trousers flap.

I recently went to a gig of S.M.V. and the sound was excellent but I assume because DI was used.

Regards

Charles

Nice bass mate ! There will be even more manufacturers that will build to your specs. But as you mentioned: It is a question of money !

Hi Tinitus

A little OT but have you tried out the ESP shown a few posts ago ? It seems to have a newer brother with neck-through construction. Price-diffrerence is around 200 euros.

Regards

Charles
