Modifying tone for car speakers
« on: February 27, 2012, 05:58:20 PM »

I have been playing with th Tiny Giant.  It sounds great through my Marshall cab.  For fun, I put it through an old car speaker, and also through my old stereo speaker.  It has an interesting sound - crunchy.  It's a cool effect, but not for all styles. 

I was wondering if a cab simulator would modify the sound to make it sound better through non cabinet speakers.  As I understand it, the cab sims (condor for example), are designed to go to a mixer without an amp.

If it's any kind of decent car speaker, it's designed to have a very flat frequency response, as opposed to a guitar speaker which generally has a boost in the upper mids then a high frequency rolloff.  My opinion is it will sound kind of boring or too bright (fizzy) unless, perhaps you can push it to breakup.

I don't know how to make a modeler circuit, but behringer makes everything cheap, like a Vamp or some such.  Probably pick one up for $10.
