The Super Twelve Made Superer!

Reclaim your sonic space with the Super Twin, a cab that looks like it's far away but sounds like it's up against your ear drum. Essentially two 'Super Compacts' in one tall slim box, with extra handles and tiltback wheels to make gigging a pleasure. Sick of your guitarist drowning you out in your rock band? Tired of your reggae band only sounding good when you have a huge PA bringing some real bottom to your bass? Bored of your current cab being loud enough but just not sounding all that great? This cab is the answer.

What else do you need to know?

  • It's a compact 2x12" that'll run happily with 100W but will sound epic with the headroom from a 1200W amp
  • Its full-range drivers have brightness and clarity without taking your head off when you stomp on a fuzz pedal
  • It punches like the best 4x10" you tried but keeps punching that hard even when you're asking for the kind of bottom you'd expect from a great 2x15"
  • Easy to carry, small stage footprint, great polar response - made for bassists who gig a lot and just want to turn up, tune up, plug in and play!

 

Who is this for?

Anyone frustrated with the ability of their 2x15", 2x12" or 4x10" cab to produce big lows without struggling (regardless of price). Bassists who prefer more mellow tones to brighter tweetered sounds. Those wanting a cab which can match their 4x12" or 8x10" for output but keen to downsize substantially. Players who want to hear their true natural midrange tone with clean balanced lows and smooth warm highs.

Which other Barefaced cabs should you consider?

If you don't play quite so loud you probably only need a Super Compact. If you'd like a more old school tone, with less immediate mids, rounder lows and characterful highs then you may prefer a couple of Retro Two10s or Six10.

Why upgrade from earlier Barefaced models?

If you have a Compact (15") and would like that same awesome bottom but gain punchier mids, cleaner treble and better dispersion and a boatload more output. If you enjoy the breadth of tone from a Midget+Compact (12"+15") and would like that from a single cab with even more potential output. If you like the output and bottom of your Super Fifteen (2x15") but would like cleaner smoother mids and a smaller cab. If you like the vibe of your Super Twelve (2x12") but would like a cleaner sound and more low frequency ability.

That was all you needed to know - only continue reading if you really want more!

 

Our new 12XN550 driver - a true giant slayer

If you want to compare like for like performance, compare one of our 12"s with TWO of anyone else's 12"s. The radical new design of the 12XN550 combines the very high sensitivity of a pro-audio mid-bass driver, the very high excursion of a pro-audio subwoofer and a response curve which has been optimised to sound great on and off-axis with bass guitar. Massive output AND awesome tone. If you want to learn more, click here.

Generation Three Hardware

Barefaced cabs are built tough for gigging and the generation three finish and hardware is the result of much thought, experimentation and feedback based on the tens of thousands of gigs our customers have played. Durability is paramount! We have also made our electronics easily field-replaceable, for minimum stress on worldwide tours. If you gig a lot and want to keep your cab looking pristine we recommend purchasing one of our padded fabric covers. To learn more, click here.

Generation Three Enclosures

Barefaced enclosure designs are the result of our radical decision to use thin-walled heavily-braced plywood construction on our very first designs in 2008, and then 5 years of constant evolution and change to develop and refine this concept for even better tone, performance and durability. We've looked at a lot of other lightweight bass cabs and often been unimpressed by their inadequate stiffness and thus 'lightweight tone' despite marketing hyperbole claiming the contrary...

High linear flow ports with thermal benefits

Ports deal with all the deep lows and give the woofer(s) an easier ride - tune them right and use a good geometry and there are no downsides. Tune them too high or too low and the tone won't be as good and the cab won't handle as much power. Make them too big and the cab will be huge (this hardly ever happens); make them too small and they'll stop working right as you play louder, killing your bottom end (this is a really common problem). We design, test, adjust, test, etc and make sure they're as good as can be. To learn more click here.
