Sunking C15
« on: March 29, 2011, 04:40:47 PM »
Hi All,

I just finished my first Sunking and it sounds great, however, I'd like a little more bottom end.  I've seen that some people have brought this up to 6.8n with good results.  Has anybody else gone this way and found 'the sweet spot' for that cap value? Or, is there another way to go for getting more bass?

Thanks!

I believe one guy went all the way up to 10n before he was satisfied!

i used 6.8n, sounds great, im using a tele -> orange amp and it doesnt sound thin at all.
everyone is different though, socket it and experiment?

Thanks for the reply guys.  I'm a little tainted.  I'm comparing it to a Tim which is giving me a little bit more beef.  Also, I'm just playing at bedroom levels through a Vox AC4 so it's hard to get the true picture.

I reduced R14 for more bass, from 15K to 3.3K i think.  Used a socket and kept reducing the value till I liked it.

I'll socket that one for experimentation too! Did you also increase the cap to 6.8nf?
