Output And Choice Of Cabnet


Best Answer jws1982 , 17 June 2013 - 11:58 AM

You're very welcome.  Here's some other quick tips on using the DT25 with the HD500:

- On your patches, start by using the amplifier pre-amp models with no cabinet models.  The point of having the DT25/50 is to let it do all the power amp and cabinet work.  Then add a cabinet model and/or full amp model to taste.  Pre-amp models also use much less CPU than the full ones.

- Use at least a good quality XLR cable to connect the POD and DT25.  Cheap mic cables can cause intermittent issues.

- If you need to clear up and effect block on your POD, let the DT25 handle the reverb for you.  The reverb is still separate when using it with a POD.

I would be very grateful for some advice on the DT25 head. What kind of output does the head produce, would it be about the same as a spider jam or a bit more powerful. And would it be advisable to run it through a DT25 cabinet or another make and if so I would appreciate suggestions as to what make of cabinet and size.

This is not a precise answer at all, but it would be around the same as a 100w solid state amp.  The DT25 is loud, much louder than a spider jam.   It'll run any cab from a 1x12 to a 4x12.  Get whatever size you need.  I personally really like the DT cabs.  I think they match up great to the head.

 

A good place to start would be with the DT25 1x12 cab.  Then, just add another 1x12 cab if you need more volume or coverage.

Thanks for that bit of advice jws 1982 it is much appreciated and has aided me in making my mind up, I will go with the DT25 head and cab. I'v only been tinkling the strings for the past two and a half to three years, and am not very good at playing at all just yet, but I have the jtv69 and the pod hd 500 and now I have saved enough money to buy the rest of the dream kit I thought I would get some advice from the guys that have more knowledge on the subject as I am sure you appreciate this stuff doesn't come cheep. CHEERS JWS 1982.

 

Kind Regards,
