    Is the cat waiting for the birds to come out of the haus? Couldn't help myself, sorry.

    This is an AudioKinesis Birdhaus 4X8 4 ohm cab/array. It's 37lbs, 12"X18"X22". I bought this prototype from Duke, he gave me a stupendous deal so I am extending the stupendicity to y'all. It is beautifully made, check the recessing of the grill and for the handle. I received it in like new condition and that hasn't changed much.
    Here's the details from Duke:

    "The woofers are the 16-ohm version of the Faital 8PR200, four of them in parallel for a 4-ohm load. The woofers are rated at 200 watts each, and they have sufficient excursion to make use of that much power without farting out, so it can take a lot of power for a little cab. The weird driver configuration is for the sake of getting fairly consistent tonal balance over a wide area. I've had people tell me that that configuration works well for improv jazz, which makes sense, because the musicians need to be able to tell what each other is doing. (I'm not a musician so I rely a lot on what musicians tell me.)"

    This will go for $540 plus actual shipping.

    If you had to describe the sound and volume of this cab, how does it rate compared to, say, most 2x10s, or high-end 1x12?

    This looks like a very interesting configuration/size/weight/formfactor for what I am looking for.

    No tweeter here, so no surprise, you'll get no sizzle. Tight low mid punch that stays tight. It's rated at 800W and I use an 800W head and no flab with the cab on a loud gig. There's more cone surface area than a 2-15" so air is moving for sure, it's just not flapping your pants:). Louder and lower than any 1-12" I've used, comparable to a good 2-10" as far as what size gig it will cover.

    Incredible. Looks like a perfect gigging/city cab.
