    Well it took me almost 3 years, but I finally found one for a great price..... And it was only 3 hours away!!

    Ladies and gentlemen, the Rivera Los Lobottom Sub 2 :evil::evil::evil:

    [​IMG]

    This beast is intense! Sure it'll bring the lows to shake the foundations of your home, but when utilizing the high-pass circuit in my Rivera KR 100 what I noticed the most was the way my mids and highs cleaned up sooooo much!! It was crazy to hear/feel. What I like the most is my clean tones. The Sub cab REALLY adds depth and makes them so rich.

    All I need now is a black grill cloth so everything matches and a rack case. :cool:

    dig your rig man. I had a Rivera a while back; there stuff is top-notch fo sho, great quality. I believe I've got the same TT board as you also, mines just a bit smaller

    :yesway:

    When I get back out playing live again (band folded last year) I do plan on trying to mic both to see how it works out. Sub cabs are really sweet, but for live application especially on a smaller level is hard to determin whether or not it'll be practical. There's one local band where the guitar player has one of the ISP Vector SL's and he mics both without too much issue.

    :taunt: Haha, no stalking just similar tastes in great gear!! Love my Rivera to death. I'm extremely pleased with my setup now!

    And the TT is one of those Hammertone's they had on eBay a while back for stupid cheap (32"x16"). They're great boards, I now understand why those who own them love them so much. I just need to prewire mine underneath.

    Nah, any smart and reasonably-equipped bass player will bury that thing. Great fun for home use though, and allows for more flexibility in cab choice when playing at high volumes!

    ya hammertone I forgot what it was called. I got mine from TT but it was something they had in their closeout closet or whatever, got it for about half of what a new one costs iirc, it's a size they don't make anymore but works fine for me as all I've got on it are my pitch black, EB, a cantrell wah, and my RJM mastermind. I don't have mine completely wired yet, but I did manage to rig up a 7 pin xlr panel jack to 7 pin midi cable for the mastermind. I can phantom power the mastermind from my rack and still have locking jacks on the side of the TT and on the front of my rack.

    edit: what do you think of the rockcrusher? I'd love to end up with one some time

    Nice! I plan on adding the locking Neutrik connectors, 7 pin MIDI (transfer power as well) and the power cable as I will have my ISO-5 underneath.

    The RockCrusher is an essential part of my rig. Even normal jamming and live use I regularily run on -3 or -8 and it's perfect! I did love the HotPlate I had for a few years, but the RockCrusher just retains your amp's tone & feel WAY better. It is pricey but I assure you it's soooooo worth it. I can keep it on -20 with the 2 babies and wife sleeping in the house and it still sounds great to me. Rivera really knocked it out of the park with this unit.

    cool, I love hearing reviews about the rockcrusher like that, I'd rather have an amp collection than a axefx. I built a room in my basement last winter that I did some sound isolation during construction (decoupled double stud walls, decoupled ceiling, sealed doors, etc) and I actually get really good attenuation in there from the rest of the house. I also have 2 young ones at home (3 years and 3 months). I figure the rockcrusher + amp in my studio room will be awesome. I plan to get a nice 1x12 and some different speakers for it. I also have a good sized closet in my studio room that I'm contemplating building a nice oversized iso area, big enough I could actually put a cab inside of it...need time, and money

    I've always wanted to try a guitar sub, whether it be the Rivera or an ISP Vector Sub. Very awesome rig, I bet it sounds like the end of the world!

    Next house we buy my plan is to do similar: heavy soundproofing. It would be nice to be able to open up the amp once in a while. I still really want to setup a small recording area with a Rivera Silent Sister.

    :evil: Indeed it does. They really are an interesting addition to the rig. Looking forward to seeing you guys November 11th here in Calgary!! :metal: I'd offer to let you try the Rivera Rig out, but I'm not sure how much free time you'll have.....

    silent sister is very interesting. if I can't figure out a way to do the "iso closet" with a real cab, I'd like to go the silent sister route. something like a silent sister with some different speakers and a rockcrusher would be very versatile me thinks, though I can't recall reading how much of a pain it is to change out speakers in it
