List of Cab Manufacturers
I am trying to compile a complete (if such thing is possible) list of bass cab manufacturers from all over the world.
I think it is quite comprehensive but with your help (and the guys from Basschat), it could be a complete one.
Here it goes....
Blackport Speaker Cabinets
(out of production)
Hughes & Kettner
Low down Sound
Son Set Beach
now Tecamp (see above)
Wayne Jones Amplification
See Purple Chili
very cool and subbed and you can add SP Amplifier http://spamplifier.com/index_e.html
SP (HU), Dragoon (IT) & Unicorn (SE) added.
Thank you guys.
Please keep 'em coming.
OP please remove Br Bass from the list. He doesn't make cabinets. He just take the money and never delivers on the cabinet.
Acoustic Control Corp has been out of business for many years. There is the Guitar Center Acoustic that you linked and also Acoustic USA http://www.acousticbassusa.com/products/361.html.
north coast music make good Vox-licensed cabinets (215, 118,)
Please update Accugroove, as it is recently resurrected.
Baer, Xsonics, Glasstone, and Mike Arnopol's "Big E" line. Mike doesn't have a website yet because he's too busy filling orders, but you'll be hearing more about his cabs in BassGear Magazine.
In addition to his network of finished cab builders, greenboy offers fEARful kits through SpeakerHardware.com, who also sells Bill Fitzmaurice kits.
Genz Benz and SWR have recently been discontinued by their parent corporation, Fender.
Blackport Speaker Cabinets
Thank you all for your contribution.
Almost all suggestions added.
Actually I was quite surprised since, although I was aware for couple of them, they mysteriously were not initially included.
I though I better leave left Genz Benz and SWR as they are, until they decide to anounce it in their site and, in any case, too many of their products are still in the market, so the site can work as reference.
I will insist that although I appreciate and follow close (and purchase) BFM as well fEARful designs, I am very reluctant to include their design assemblers to my list. Sorry.
I was a bit puzzled about Dr Bass since the purpose of the list was just to list (oh really ?) the manufacturers and not evaluate them or even comment on their work.
At the end of the day though, I am not a unbiased reporter that just reports the facts, and BassmanPaul's link (I was not aware of) convinced me that Dr Bass should be ommited.
Of course that is an implicit position towards Dr Bass but to be honest, I do prefer that than the explicit one of including Dr Bass with comments underneath the company name.
Thank you for your contributions. I really appreciate them all.

Tech Soundsystem is now Tec Amp, i.e. one and the same company.
Tech Amp <- should be TecAmp
Might be opening a can of worms here, but if you include the pro audio speakers that some bassists favor -- e.g., Anthony Jackson's Meyer Sound cabinets -- you can probably double the number of manufacturers on that list!
Speaking of which, does anyone know if InterSonics is still in business? They made a bunch of servo-drive subwoofers that a few bassists I knew swore by. (Or at, when they had to lift them.)
