    I have been interested in these unique cab designs since seeing them here on talkbass and I finally got a chance to check one out.

    Initial impressions:
    Wide open sound, this cab really breaths
    Great tone
    A ton of options with the porting system
    Acoustic friendly option does “something” but I can’t really determine what
    4/8 ohm option is nice

    It’s going to take awhile to really test this cab and I’m excited based on my initial impression.

    So it has a horn on the front and the back and four close able ports?

    My understanding is the horn on the back is the Acoustic Friendly option that creates a surround sound, acoustic effect.
    I haven’t started experimenting with the ports yet.
    I’m going to be in the soundlab for a while........

    When I got my Phil Jones combos, they came with a flyer describing optimal place WRT walls behind the cab for various frequencies. Of course, real life stage dimensions don’t often allow for this, but I imagine there will be some intuitive notes to self you will be able to make regarding the port seals and proximity to walls behind you. Should be interesting!

    I owned one of the original TC-112's they sound amazing. Duke is a excellent designer. Since the cabinet is quite tall, and deep, it's not as suitable for small clubs, as other cabs are. That said, on a outdoor concert,
    or auditorium with electric or acoustic bass it can really keep up with a 3x10.
