1X12 Wave Cabinet
1X12 Wave Cabinet
Our patented Port City Wave Cabinets are a fundamentally different approach to the speaker cabinet. Rather than creating a rectangular box, adding speakers, and hoping for the best, we developed our Wave cabinets to physically interact with the speakers in a more musical way. Inside of every Port City Wave cabinet, there are two 45-degree sound deflecting panels along the top and bottom of the back panel. These panels allow the back waves from the speakers to reflect out of the angled port along the width of the front of the cabinet and up to the player. This simple yet effective design yields very noticeable results, with a more balanced tone that doesn’t attenuate or boost any frequencies. This allows every note your speaker produces to be heard as it should be. These cabinets are used by professionals for everything from jazz to metal to country and perform exceptionally in all environments.
Port City Wave Cabinets can match most larger cabinets in terms of volume and depth. When you dig into a bend or a chord, you will hear and feel the difference these cabinets make. Great tone is vital for great musicians and we are sure you’ll love your Wave Cabinet once you hear what you’ve been missing.
Due to the extremely compact size of the standard 1x12 Wave Cabinet, this cabinet is best suited for stereo and wet/dry/wet setups. If you are looking for a standalone 1x12 cabinet to use with a single head, we highly recommend going with our 1x12 OS Wave Cabinet, as it will yield a sound that is less compressed and because of its greater size will be able to support the footprint of most heads. Please contact us if you have any questions about which cabinet is best for you.
If you are unsure about which speakers would be best for you, please contact us with details about your setup and playing style so we can recommend the speakers that would best suit your needs.
All Port City cabinets are constructed with 13-ply void-free marine grade Baltic Birch and come loaded with a proprietary Kimber internal wiring harness and a Switchcraft jack.
