    MAS-26 Speaker

    Post by Chicago-Joe on Thu Oct 16, 2014 9:39 am

    Hi All,

    I picked up my MAS-26 from Mike a couple weeks ago and then had been out of town until this week and had not had a chance to give it a good workout. Well it sounds great. It's hard to believe it can get down as low in frequency (open E, I play 4 strings) and still be solid. Most importantly to me is that it sound good both at practice / studio sound levels and at volume in a coffee shop gig or even a small club. Next I will have to spend some time to figure out how to mic the speaker for the best sound. Any suggestions?

    Running through a highly modded BBE 383 and a Dayton Audio APA150.

    Mic placement: Placing the near the transducers will yield a crisp and possibly gritty tone. Placing the mic near the Output Flares will yield a more smooth yet powerful tone. For a more integrated sound try a mic placement at the center of the loudspeaker (between the transducers) as far away from the loudspeaker as possible without inducing feedback say two feet or so.

    You may find that micing is only needed in larger gigs or for recording.
