    I have owned this cab for a year. I believe it is the 4 ohm version 1 of the cab. Has the rear firing tweeter (I think that is the "AF" designation. I haven't gigged this cabinet. There is a lot written on talkbass about this cab so you may want to explore if you have questions.

    Weighs a bit over 40 lbs
    No case

    Rear firing tweeter, but front-facing horn?

    Possible to determine if 4 or 8-ohms? Kinda an important piece of info :) .

    Yes, thanks. I see that. My question, though, is about rational? 100% positive that there's fine rational for it, but I don't know what it is. As the owner of the box, I'm asking you what your understanding may be. Or then again, maybe you just bought it because it's Duke's Thunderchild (which is perfectly understandable, too, Duke's got great skills & certainly knows how to design/build with the best of 'em) & didn't worry about his justification for that particular item.

    i'm not the owner.

    the rationale is likely to be found over on the audio kinesis thread.

    O.K., didn't check close enough. Thought you were the seller. So you have absolutely no clue. Got it :thumbsup:. Thanks.

    i own the hathor 1203 and the thunderchild 112, 4ohm version. i've read up on the rationale of the af versions, seems to make sense, but don't feel qualified to explain it.

    it seemed like you were confused by the rear-firing tweeter and front-firing horn; thinking that it was one or the other.

    I am the seller. I am traveling so my responses will be spotty.

    I play and try things because I like the way they sound. I don't get overly concerned with audio theory. Maybe pose the question in the amp forum and watch as 200 pages discuss how many angels can dance on a 12 inch speaker.

    It is 4 ohms.

    The rear-firing tweeter adds some "air" and "top end" and is particularly useful for upright, according to Duke. It also allows folks behind the cab (e.g., a drummer) to hear the high end. It has nothing to do with the horn, although some AK cabs may have a switch that allows you to turn off both the rear-firing tweeter and the horn. This cab was once mine (I still have a wide version of the TC115) and it's an excellent example of Duke's work. GLWTS, DM
