Abe White tests Prototypes

Postby LaneOnBass » Wed Apr 28, 2010 12:32 pm

OK... I'm working on the update, and have uploaded the first trio of videos from last week's Operation: NASH BASH. Here's my good friend Abe White checking out the DNS-210, DNS-410, and DNS-112N cabs.

Keep Thumpin'!

I like the look and the sound of those cabs.

Is it just me or was the 112 clearer ?

Maybe 2 of those babies would do the job for me after all .

If not I know 4 of them would !!

Dang it I just hate getting G.A.S.

One thing ALL the cabs have in common is clarity - at virtually all frequencies. That's what impressed us most during the first tests. Also, a single DNS112 was kicking the ass of TWO 112XLTs that as you know have a pronounced mid-bump and good cut characteristics. Pretty cool, huh?

Lane may have more to add to the question if single driver/single port cabs always different from 2X or 4X arrays.

Thanks Jeff and Yep very cool !
I'm very keen to find out anything more about the DNS-112N , I'm thinking it will be my first D.N.A cab then add another one then put the 2x112's on top of my D410xst for a monster rig.
:twisted:
then get the DNS210 then ..............................
:D
Yep G.A.S always starts with one tiny cab !

It will be a good thing when dealers have stock and more dudes can report back. One thing I can say is many of the test videos show fairly aggressive playing (who can resist?), but these cabs sound great and well-nuanced at lower volumes, also. David definitely knows how to design **musical** bass cabinets.

Would be nice to hear the cabinets in a band context, with good room mic's.

Love to see the previews!

Love the sound of the 12 also better, but it's hard to really grasp the sound of a bass, amplified by the amp and cab, mic-ed by the cam, converted to digital video, reconverted over youtube, streamed and played down on my laptop through my earbuds, a bit hard to compare the original sound to the one I can hear.
But I had the impression that the 12" cab had a little more of the 80Hz region (lows, but not deep lows) than the other cabinet he tested. At least, that was the impression I had of the vid.

Sounded good, but the only thing is that the video's aspect ratio is 16/9 or 16/10 and it displays in a 4/3 box making the video stretched vertically. I don't know if you can change the recording format, or conversion output to display it to the original format (or am I the only one experiencing this?)

But seems ok to me
