Hey fellow Helix and PC owners, I have had my power cabs since they were released, I played them at low volumes
when setting my helix up. I played one gig with them thinking they'd reflect my sound live.... NOT so... fizz, and trebley
and brittle sounding... I recently tried tweaking them but no avail... I used to use Tech21 Powercabs and I got good
sounds from them. I'm really bummed out so far and am thinking I must be missing something.
For reference I normally play live Helix through a Duncan Powerstage 700 through 2 1-12 speaker cabs in stereo, they
sound massive. If I play bigger venues I use my old Egnater 2-80 Tube power amp, through 2 - 2-12 mini slants in stereo
which sounds amazing.
I'm about ready to dump my two PC112 cabs or use them for something else because they are just horrid sounding.
Can anyone clue me in to a way to get a useable sound out of them? I am thinking that I might have to disable all my
speaker emulation blocks on my Helix presets to see if I can get a decent sound that way... I spent a lot for the pair, kind
of glad I didn't buy the plus and have this kind of problems...
For the life of me I can't get any decent dirty or overdrive tones out of these cabs with it sounding brittle harsh...
anyone??? Thanks in advance... last shot before I dump the cabs, they sure look great and are convenient
