    Hoping one of the Genz people could chime in.

    Are these drivers cast frame or stamped?

    I don't have the answer but I do own 2 1x12 Focus cabs and I feel that they are an excellent value and really sound good at any price point. If I was a betting man I'd say they're stamped frame to hold costs down.

    How do the Focus 112 cabs perform? What amp do you use with them?

    I use a LittleMark lll and I love the combo. Call it modern/vintage! A real easy schlep too.
    The Focus 1x12s are truly light.

    How about volume? My current rig is a Markbass CMD 102 P with a Traveler 102P extension cab. Never had it above halfway. Do you think the Focus cabs could keep up?

    I think 4x10 vs 2x12 is an unfair fight but I think you will be in that arena and get a more round tone if you like, although you can get the mids from the Focus 12s if you bump them up at the amp.
