Philjones cabs

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Davidoc, Jun 29, 2003.

  1. I see the adds. Has anyone tried them to see if they live up to their claims?

    I'm getting the impression that this is just one of those things where science tries to prove reality wrong, eg: solid state amps are superior to tube amps.
  2. Don't be silly, EVERYONE knows that Solid State is far better than those outdated valves.

    The reviews he has in the review section are from a TB'r who tried them out at some point and posted reviews here. Other than that, I'm not sure who here has tried them.

    And it's not proving science wrong. If you've ever heard some hi fi cabs that use an array of 3" drivers and hit harder than anything else, you know that he's working on solid ground. I mean, seriously, 100 watt 5" drivers, and 16 of them at that? If it's done right it should have all the punch and clarity of small drivers plus all the low end handling from such a massive cone area.

    I for one am looking forward to hearing these cabs - if nothing else, they are unlike anything else on the market and are bound to sound different. And judging from the early reviews, they don't suck...

    Also, Phil Jones sent me an email regarding a thread that cropped up here at TB - if nothing else, that says he's a hands-on guy who cares a lot about the product and the way it's presented. Many great companies/products started out with a similar personality driving them...

    Time will tell.

    I tried one and thought it was amazing sounding! They're big and bulky, and because the cones are all 5", they don't skimp on the mids. But, they deliver, that's for sure!:D

    Phil Jones is the only bass cabinet manufacturer that I know of that publishes actual measurements of his cabinets. You can compare his measurements to top of the line PA cabinets and see that they do perform extremely well.

    He's got a line of neo's eventually coming out. I'd really like to see what he does with these.
