Yea I own the SWR Son Of Bertha. It's ok I guess but it does not have the bottom that I was looking for, It's works well when I pair it with me SWR Henry 8X8 along with my SWR SM 900 I'm planning on changing the swr driver on the son of Bertha to a Better quality 4 ohm 450 watt driver. The son of Bertha has an 8 ohm 350 watt driver.
This is an awesome cab to add some low frequencies in small gigs utilizing house PAs. I stack a SWR Silverado II Combo fitted with 2 12's on top of it. Even at 425 watts total rig power, this 15" really helps to move a nice heavy column of air. If you're playing music other than rock/metal this cab, incorporated correctly, will provide a nice fullness, but go with an 18" if you want huge.
I bought 2 of these cabinets brand new and they sounded great together through every head I tried (SVT-II, Fender BXR, Ashdown). However, when I tried to use a single cabinet, it would be entirely insufficient. After a couple months, I was using BOTH cabinets at a gig with a 300-watt head and one of the woofers blew out, making me doubt the accuracy of the 350-watt RMS rating. These cabinets were very expensive and frankly I expected them to be able to easily handle the load. Oh well...
I use the Son of Bertha along with my SWR Super Redhead. It adds some nice clean lows to my sound. I have found in a venue that holds 300-1000 people it produces more than enough thick, clean tone. Any venue larger than that I use my amp as pretty much a bass monitor and go through the house. I normally do not use the horn on this cabinet because I prefer the one on my Super Redhead. It really accents my Super Readhead and it sounds good slapped.
I am A long Time SWR user from the late 80s my rig is all SWR. I have 1-Gll and 1-Glll and I needed some thing for practice and small gigs and this cabinet all though well constructed the 15? driver sucks its very midrangy with no solid bottom end also I blown 2 driver and I was not pushing it hard come on SWR or should I say Fender you can do better change the driverplease. The SWR Glll 2X10 is awesome it give up every thing you need from a nice portable cab.
Great cab for your speaker stack. I set it under my GK combo amp and it CRANKS. I knock stuff off the shelves with this thing at my friends house(where we practice). Very loud, very deep, very clear, and the horn sounds really really good. A bit pricey but a great product all around and worth the $$$ if you have it.
This cab handles the low end very well. I paired it with a Goliath Junior 2x10 running from a 750x head. The cabs handle the power very well considering the power rating of the 750x is over the handling capacity of the cabs. When using the 'Turbo' button on my amp I can get those sub level frequencies to really vibrate the venue. Definitely a good buy.
This speaker paired with an SWR Workingman's 4004 amp has made a great first gigging set up for me. It is clear and loud enough that there is always ample bass presence in our band's sound. I've had a few reports of being heard from miles away. Plus it just looks sharp. A 15 inch speaker cabinet can be a bit of a hassle to lug around. I wouldn't put up with it for a lesser speaker which didn't have this one's power handling capacity.
I bought this cab in summer 04. I use it with SWR 550x and a golliath III. It is no match at all whatsoever. Simply not enough power, even alone it's distorted. Too expensive to play on volume level 2. It's a good practice cab for your bedroom.
