fEARful Bass Guitar Cabs FAQ

Cab Selection

All the cabs are voiced the same.  The difference between them is output.  The bigger the cab, the more output.

  • 12/6 cube and 15/6 tube.

The 12/6 cube is sized to fit on top of a 15/6.  Giving you a good expansion option with out carrying around another 15/6 or one of the bigger dual driver cabs.  Very versatile

The  15/6 tube is wider than a normal 15/6 to accommodate larger tube heads sitting on top.

  • Multiple Cabs

      All the single cabs are designed to stack.  If you are doing a pair of cabs, you must mirror image the baffles.  Invert the top one so the tweeters/mids are directly above each other.  Otherwise comb filtering will occur. If you order flat packs, be sure to put a note in the message field on the order page to mirror baffles.  Standard 12/6’s in pairs are the most popular and versatile setup. 

  • Tweeter selection

All the cabs can be run with or without tweeters with the CBG Crossovers.  The  tweeter however adds some sparkle and helps cut through the mix.  The ASD 1001 is an excellent basic tweeter.  The 18sound XD125 has superior dispersion and slightly higher output. Not available for the 12/6, it won’t fit. 

  • Crossover Selection

    There are two versions of crossovers for fEARful cabs. 

CBG, the original crossovers designed by greenboy are excellent for bass guitar use.  Every cab requires a low pass and a midrange crossover.  If you add a tweeter the highpass is needed also.  The subwoofers  require a low pass if you intend to use them with a fEARful.  As a PA sub you don’t want the crossover.

  A few years later some users and greenboy designed the TRUE crossovers to optimize the capabilities of these cabs.  The TRUE crossovers require a tweeter.  They create a flat response cab that can be used as a PA cab, or if you do a lot of modeling.  The PDF file for true crossovers is contained in zipped plans files on each cabinet’s page.

  • Amplifier power

The power handling rating of the Eminence Kappalites determine the power handling of the cabs,  Typically 500w for the singles, 1000w for the duals.  Many users run more than this, but run at your own risk.
