Orange SP212

  1. Hi,
    I'd like to invest in a small rig and I've come across an add for the new Orange loudspeaker the so-called Smart power Isobaric technology.
    I'm interested in the SP212 (two 12'' speakers inside). I'd like to have your opinions about that cab... I'm a bit worried that there's no tweeter inside...
    In Europe it costs about 600 Euros.

    It's not a standard 2x12.

    It's a box that sized as a typical 1x12, but it actually has two speakers inside.

    I believe the reason is to generate low frequencies from a smaller box.

    Frankly, a properly ported, sized, ported .... ok, designed ... 1x12 cabinet will go just as low and you won't have to carry the weight of two speakers.

    However, I feely admit I've never heard one. I'm just not sold on the design.

    If you do a search you will find lots of info on this cab.

    +1. If you need the output of a 1x12 but from a smaller cab, and you don't mind paying what most companies charge for a 4x12, it's a valid choice. But if you need the output of a traditional full size 2x12 you'll need to buy two of these.

    a 4x12 for 600€ in Europe ?
    Point me the way !!! :p

    You'll barely get a 2x12, other than the bottom range GK and like.
