Can anyone identify this bass cab for me?

    Hello,

    A friend of mine picked up this bass cab from an estate sale today. He asked me if I know anything about the brand. I've never seen this brand of bass cab before. It appears to say "AK" on the back.

    There is an AK Audio that does stamped-in logo stuff (mostly car audio IIRC), but that doesn't look like their typcial brand mark to me.

    I noticed that too. They are in Rome, GA which is a little north of me from Atlanta. So I'm wondering if this is some of their early custom work.

    Al, tell me this isn't your brand. Really?

    ;)

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. Please carry on.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. It was beyond silly. So you should not have noticed it. :D

    Thanks for being a good sport, Al!

  7. Are you sure it doesn't stand for AOK? As in A-OK...

    Looks like it had a horn or tweeter. Does it have any filters on the input?

    May be low-passed, so if it sounds dark it would be worth cracking open. Is he trying to sell it? Often the sum of the parts is greater than the whole so opening it up may reveal a higher total selling the drivers than the cab will fetch.

    My first thought was AudioKinesis when I saw AK, but I do not believe Duke has a logo on his cabs - at least not any of his bass cabs that I've ever seen. And this is the only logo I've ever seen for AudioKinesis at all:

  12. Have you played through it? How does it sound?

    My friend is not trying to sell it or anything. He picked it up at an estate sale and he was just wondering what brand it was. I will probably be seeing him this week, so I will get to try it out. I imagine it sounds great though!
