  4. Sub from a bass guitar speaker cabinet

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'll preface this all by saying I'm very new to HTS and home theater in general. I was searching for any threads on this topic and didn't find anything. I'm starting my first HT system and I'm selling a lot of my old musical equipment. One is a 15" speaker in an oversized cabinet that has the...

    I'm Kerem First of all I'm an amateur who wants to be a semi-professional at music. I had to say that. I have a demo album. Except the drums I played all the stuff, mix it and mastered it. I am a singer, old-fashioned, likes Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, SVR, vs. I am a guitarist...
  6. Using guitar pedals with synths

    Pro Audio
    I'm pretty sure this has been done by many people: using overdrive or other effects pedals with synths that were designed with guitars in mind. I'm just wondering: is there any modding/interfacing necessary to do this due to different impedances and such, the same way you need a DI box to plug a...

  12. BFD for Guitar Rig Eqing

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi guys, I'm looking for a parametric EQ to use with my guitar rack. I'm not after any PEQ becouse my idea is to mimic cabinet impulse responses with it. I know it's weird but stay with me as I try to explain. My lead sound relies on a tiny cabinet with a 10" speaker but that is the only sound...

    I wasn't sure where to post this but I think it still qualifies as home audio.?> I was wondering if anyone here knew why they always seem to use multiple 12" drivers for electric guitar amps. I would imagine it has to do with sensitivity and high output but electric guitar has some pretty high...
