Re: Krank Head vs. 5150 II Review
the revolution cabs have eminence v-12s which are crappy, the krankenstien cabs have eminence texas heats which are a little better, but very subjective.
all the eminence equipted cabs i have played i didn't like to much. I have som texas heats in my cab and they need to get some jucie flowing through them for them to sound half way decent then the bass is too much, and the mids are kind of shut out,and the highs are biting.
i played my xxl that i had for a while through a marshall 1960 cab with celestion g12t-75s and man it rocked. I got it home and hooked it up to my cab and it was ok but not anything like it sounded with the marshall cab.
I once said that peavey cabs where crap . I have since changed my mind. I spent about an hour playing a xxx through the xxx cab and it sounded realty nice . I even played the xxl cab with the xx head and it sounded pretty good too.
I know my cab is going to be the next thing i upgrade, and to anyone who is looking at a new head, i strongly suggest you try a lot of different cabs as well, including the one you currently own or are intending to buy.
