I've been looking around various cabinet manufacturers and their 1x12 offerings. One thing that has struck me is that no other manufacturer can get close to the RMS wattage that a Barefaced cabinet can take.
The Super Compact is 600W rms
The Super Midget (a 1x12 with a tweeter) is 600W rms
The Big Baby (a 1x12 with a seemingly different tweeter) is 800W rms
How are these numbers possible? I cannot find a single 1x12 driver on the market that is specced for 600W rms let along 800W. Do Barefaced make their own drivers using a secret sauce known only to them? Is the tweeter on the Big Baby really able to soak in an extra 200W or is the bigger cabinet allowing for better cooling? Going by the wattage differential of their 2x12 cabs with/without tweeter it would appear to be the latter, although can that really be true?
I guess you could just put some passive electronics in the cabinet to technically be able to handle 800W when in fact it's just heating the room, but I cannot yet see the purpose of doing something like that.
What am I missing?

Collection only from Preston Lancs for now, due to imminent hernia operation and recovery.
Hello everyone! I love this cab, it’s really very good. But my current musical projects suit the Barefaced X10 cabinets better so I now have a pair of One10s and a Four10 for when I need to destroy walls, which makes this surplus to requirements. If I could justify keeping it I would but I don’t really have the space and could do with the money to cover a car service.
Bought new from the Bass Gallery in 2018, gigged about 10 times (if that) since, it’s in fine fettle. No cover I’m afraid, and no box to be able to ship either so collection only from me (Horley, Surrey, near Gatwick airport) or we can find a mutually convenient location to do a dodgy BC deal in a car park 🤓
