Post Hello from New Zealand
Thanks for the add. Wayne from Te Pahu, New Zealand. Hoping to build a 12/6 for a teenage double bass and bass guitar player as a project we can both do. I've heard the 12/6 in performance and was very impressed.
I'll be reading through the posts here, and hoping to find advice on if adding the high freq driver is worth doing ... the cost with freight to NZ are quite significant, especially as the mid driver seems to go to 10kHz, any advice appreciated. Thanks

G'day Wayne. While the cabs of choice for doubling are the Fearless range, my understanding is that DB sound reproduction will benefit from adding the tweeter. So I would think using the True3way crossover in a fEARful should be in the equation. I don't play DB so I have no relevant experience to share.

Either way you are going to have to EQ probably. And either crossover works fine for doubling if the preamp/head in question allows one to have sufficient EQ control.
