Holy crap, Sunn Alpha 112



Holy crap, Sunn Alpha 112

Postby theAntihero » Sun Nov 17, 2013 3:30 pm

I just got myself a Sunn Alpha 112 and im pretty damn impressed. I expected it to be similiar to the Beta Lead i have but...its not at all. :eek:

First off, massive bass response with this thing, massive. Like 7/8ths of RedBear :eek: It is way smoother sounding than the Beta too although its not a "nice" sort of distortion it puts out.

Also, stupidly bad speaker in this thing...horrible in nearly everyway. I ripped it out and hooked up a temporary jack and played thru some cabs and the difference was ridiculous :love: . So my plan is to slap in a 16ohm et65 or my custom made Weber, then drill thru the back and wire up a jack so i can also use an extention cab as well (the amp apparently runs at 8 ohm since thats what the speaker is). Even at 16 ohms both speakers are far louder than the stock speaker :thumb:

So what ill have is a light small Doom amp that i can also hook up to a 6x12/4x12/2x5/etc. And what did i pay for this little pocket full of doom?














$27.56 after tax :!!!:

I actually picked up two suns today one is a beta lead 4x10 from a friend (it made the full whore circle between me and friends back to me :lol: ) and a sunn poweramp that has a graphic eq. its great for amps that have a slave out and it does two ohms =D 80$ lololol

So an update. While the et65 sounded like an upgrade alone, with the 2x15 the difference is huge so i gotta find a speaker that works well in tiny enclosures....or just build a new bigger cabinet for the alpha.
