Genzler Bass Array Cab Question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by BitMoBass, May 4, 2017.

  1. Genzler Bass Array Cab Question (I tried searching this question but didn't have much success)

    The Genzler Bass Array series of cabs have attracted my interest (ie: BA-12-3).

    Regarding the four 3” drivers that make up the line array element. Are these four speakers in their own enclosure? Or, are they mounted on that front baffle board as four open backed speakers? It’s difficult to tell eggsackly what is going on from the picture.......thanks for any insight on this.
  2. I used to work with a guys who's last name was Ackly. We called him "Eggs."
  3. ha ha ha ---- good one......I guess the yolk was on him

    Let me help unscramble this quakery. Back to the question, yes the Array element is a sealed half-radius enclosure where the 4 x 3" NEO drivers are installed. It is mounted directly in front of the 12" driver and is mounted with 2 screws from the top and 2 from the bottom. The are full range drivers crossed over in the 800 Hz range.

    you can hardly get a better answer than that ! :thumbsup:

    I was going to say you can hardly beat an answer like that, but I did not want to continue the egg pun theme :laugh:
  10. Thanks Jeff; quite the streamlined and elegant design.

    Don't chicken out. I would whisk on down to your yolkal music store and fry out one of these BA cabs.

  14. ===== Thanks ----- $$$ are a bit tight now, and my current cabinet continues to hang, plus the band I play the majority of gigs with these daze is not super loud and they run everything thru the PA which has a sub. However, at some point, I do plan to try a BA-12-3 and hear it for myself.

    One for these cabs is pretty darn loud and very articulate. You could easily gig with a moderate band. Two would scramble your huevos for sure.

    I teach lessons and perform live music in and around San Diego CA. Sometimes I even make money doing it!
    I was going to posit that open backed speakers would be extremely unlikely in a hi-fi application, Even tweeters need their own enclosure or are built as a closed back unit. Then the freaking guy who made them had to scoop me, and give even more cogent info.

    Great to have you back on the market, Jeff, I'm sorry to report your old stuff is so damn good, I need it to break or stop being so awesome to reload. I haven't plugged into an amp other than the shuttlemax 12.2 in 5 years or so, at any gig of any size.

    I have just bought a 10-2 cab as part of the combo. If dollars are tight then the cost is a bit lower and it will be plenty loud enough for jazz and EUB work. I am still evaluating the combo but it is all good so far.

    I know what you mean Nick about the gear being "too good". I only sold my Genz Benz Shuttle setup because I thought my gigging days were over. Now I have to buy into it all again - how awful. :)

    while we are discussing these cabs...what does the low-frequency roll-off curve look like? and...how is that curve affected by running, say, three of these cabs stacked? (my amps are 2-ohm stable.)
