what do you guys think of this speaker? I think this may be better for me than the vintage 30s. Do they have a good rep??
I agree. I liked the low end, but the highs were a bit too harsh. I do think that mixing a H30 with a V30 sounds pretty good except that they break up at different volumes. I got some weird gain sounds becasue of that. Ultimately I think it depends on what style of music you're going for and what amp you play through. I like the v30 for the higher gain stuff because the sound is so focused in the mids. I prefer the H30 for low to medium gain pushed amp sounds.Originally posted by Swarty
The G1230H is too scooped and bright for my tastes.
Depends on your ears I guess, I agree with propska and swarty, I mix both in a 4x12, and have listened to them both mic'd, while the complete cab sounds good in a room, I NEVER mic the G12H30, always the V30. I may even switch over to all V30's.Originally posted by diminishedlogic
I was under the impression that this speaker was significantly LESS bright than a vintage 30. Vintage 30 speakers have that obnoxious high mid range spike.
I have to agree with Swarty, I have a 5150iii Loaded with two V30h and standing next to it live it sounds great but this past weekend I went wireless and stepped out in front of the stage and it was the most brash sound I could not stand! I have a Scumback 75LD 100w in another combo and I think I will change the 5150 to thoseThe G1230H is too scooped and bright for my tastes. I'll take Vintage 30s over them.
