Barefaced One10

I think the point about Alex's cabs is that they are not [i]just an xxx (put your config here)[/i].

Is £299 good for a 210?

That's the comparison you should be making.

Why? It's a 1x10, isn't it?

Because they claim it matches most 2x10s for output. And the Retro Two10 they claim matches most 4x10s

As far as I know, no BF owners disagree with the estimates of BF cab capabilities.

So if you want to compare apples with apples you have to be looking at BF cabs being very good value for money.

They are still available on the website. If you go to "Products" then look down the listing on the left, it's the bottom line.

They now sell from £249 collected.

Certainly my experience of the Super Compact matches their claims IME and I very much agree with you.

It's £110 more than an Ashdown 1x10 cab which is fair for a British built cab with very highly customised driver, not to mention comparing it to other "high end" 1x10s, let alone any of the 2x10s it can probably keep up with :)

Sad I missed out on this!

£249 isn't a lot more and still great value for a BF. I've ordered one.

You're going to need two... and that assumes you can get away with a 210 on a gig, which is tenuous.

I'm guessing the main use will be a Double bass, quiet jazzer

[/quote]Mine will be to replace the BigOne I have in my lounge at home. The BigOne gives a great sound, but it's a bit OTT. Even Mrs G agrees.

Really fancy one of these for pit gigs.

You do gig's down a pit?
Well, at least you have a lift to get down there.

I want a stack of 4! :lol:
[/quote]

You should do it! I wonder if a pair of the 2x10"s might be more sensible though...

where's the fun in being sensible!? :lol:

seriously, 'though... 7.5Kg each? And that size? So easy to carry and take anywhere. A stack of 4, vertical, would take little room and might be pretty cool. I'd love to try that configuration at least. ;)

New Cab Day!

I'm really pleased with it. Met Alex and learned more about their thinking. Great guy. He'll do well. He is doing well.

[/quote]To get the best from the speakers, don't you need to have then in a 4x10 arrangement? Like the four corners of a square? :mellow:

Can you put it beside a can of Coke for scale purposes please (not one of the crappy tiny ones you get on airplanes)
:)
I can only truly guage the size of something if it's beside a can of coke.

No generally. It all revolves around how you want to sound to disperse. When you put speakers in grid, you get upper mid/high frequency cancellation everywhere except being directly in front of it.

Put speakers in a line and you get cancellation only in the direction of the line, which is why you see vertical arrays of speakers at concerts - to minimise cancellation in the horizontal plane.

Sweet little cab on the whole, not quite in love with the minecraft inspired grill if I'm being really picky.

As requested. The combo on the left is a CMD121. Both have their back panels parallel.
Coke can is standard size.

It's really light to carry. I'd say making one that has a docking port to take the amp would be a cool option; so the amp is protected and saves you carrying it as a separate item.
