Barefaced 4 x 10 - are the inputs hybrid??

Recommended Posts

Just a quickie - I'm playing tomorrow and the supplied cab is a Barefaced 4 x 10, I can't work out from their website if the inputs are Speakon only or hybrid Speakon / 1/4". Can anyone advise?

They seem to on other cabs they make - but I can't find a ref for this cab specifically. It's a really important gig for us, so I'm trying to be 100% sure, so I can worry about other things!

You could always give Alex a quick call at Barefaced? Am sure he'd be happy to confirm.

I'm fairly certain that they're hybrid - they certainly are on both the Barefaced cabs I own.

I often play gigs with cabs supplied (as transporting cabs by easyjet isn't going to happen), using my own head - I always have a  speakon to speakon and a speakon to 1/4" cable with me so I'm covered for whatever they throw at me.

Cheers. I've spoken to the guy who's cab it is and he has some cable options anyway. They are loading out after our set so they'll be around anyway.

Similarly I carry  Speakon/Jack cables with Speakon/Jack converter plugs as I also rarely use my own cabs.

The speakon/jack sockets are dark green and have the word "combo" moulded around the outside of the raised circular part.  In the case of a supplied cab that you can't check beforehand, I'd come prepared with speakon cables or adapters just in case.

All Barefaced cab sockets in the current range use combi speakon/jack. Only the original Gen 1 and 2 ranges didn’t. So yes the 4x10 has combi sockets :)

And, of course, all of these are the right answer.  Even if this situation is sorted, it'd cost you under a tenner, and you'd never live to regret it.

Except I'm at work and have a school run to do and so won't have the luxury of free time between now and load in. PMT Nottingham don't have them listed anyway. Online order only.

I have that cab and can happily confirm that the connectors are indeed green.

It worked! However, due to the 'on the floor' placement of the cab and the biggish stage, I have never been simultaneously so loud and yet had to dig in so hard to get any definition. I'm sure the backs of my knees enjoyed the workout.

If so, you're welcome 🙂
