Good cab for solid low end?

Anyone have suggestions for a 4x12 cabinet that can take a lot of lows and not fart or flap around?
Right now I have a Sovtek, and its a flapper.

I have no personal experience with these but I've heard a lot of 7 stringers rave about the low end on the Carvin MTS Cabs w/british speakers. *They're pretty cheap too.

Of course the typical answer will probably be the mesa/boogie cabs.

so far my Mesa 4x12 has the best low end...but I've only tried out the Marshall, Carvin, and Crate 4x12's.

Depends what kinda lowend your looking for. If it's like, 'scooped huge low end bass' or just 'clear crisp tight lows' (ie: normal guitar lows).

If you want the big scoop, just get a nice 4x12 and a 1x12 or 2x12 Rivera Los Lobottom. It's a self-powered/crossovered sub for guitar. The things are super low and loud.

If you just want nice tight lows, I've actually researched this someone extensively and found the Bogner bottom's w/ Vintage 30's and the Mesa Boogie Recto Traditionals w/ Vintage 30's (not the big Recto fart boxes) to have the best all around tight low and and crisp highs.

It really depends on what you are looking for.

The los lobottom, that might be something to check out. *Is there a way to get a crossover to the 4x12, so I can direct all the lows to the rivera, and all the other freq's to my current cab?
Also, is it something that can be run off of a rack setup? *Everything I saw was talking about it being a part of a combo amp...

Yeah you can.

From what I recall the Los Lobottom has a crossver built in.

So you can actually cut some bass off of your main 4x12, and just pump it on the Los Lobottom. It's not going to send out anything above like 120hz or so.

Jeffrey can you elaborate on the tonal differences between the Recto 4x12 standard and the Recto 4x12 traditional? I have the standard cab and it sounds amazing but I want something a little more portable that doesn't break my back every time I load it in my jeep. Thanks.

Yes, the Los Lobottom has a built in crossover. You can hook it up several ways, FX loop out, slave out, * or power amp out. FX loop or slave outs with independent level controls will give you the ability to mix the sub level to taste. I am VERY happy with it.

I guess I could best sum it up by saying the traditional cab had better clarity, note seperation and was in general "tighter" sounding; less mushy/farty/honky stuff.

Hope that silly explanation helps. :loco: Hehe.
