    Speaking strictly of cabs what makes them who they are, what makes Ampeg Ampeg, and SWR SWR, and so on... you get the point. Any bass cab you can think of. concider size, weight, cost, sound, style, wattage handeling, and anything else you can think of.
  2. okay, i might be a little drunk, but i don't think that's the main reason that i can't understand what the heck you're trying to ask.
  3. the label that says the name

    What he's asking is what is the nature or spirit of each of these products that makes them distinct. Easy, each of these is the expression of the vision of each designer.

  12. It all comes down to design. Any good manufacture can read design specs. and reproduce whatever. Look inside just about any amp. How many different brands of components make it up? Manufacturers really only assemble parts made by other manufacturers made by other manufactures until you get down to the level of melting the down the raw materials. Kinda like the food chain. The design is the key.

    Describing cabinet characteristics is like describing what food tastes like. When I eat I let my taste buds tell me, when I'm trying bass cabs I let my ears tell me. What I think might be warm and punchy you may think is nasal and grindy?? Its all subjective. Good luck in your search.
