Port City Wave Cabinets are a fundamentally different approach to the speaker cabinet. Rather than creating a rectangular box, adding speakers, and hoping for the best, we developed our Wave cabinets to physically interact with the speakers in a more musical way. Inside of every Port City Wave cabinet, there are 45-degree sound deflecting panels along the top and bottom of the back panel. These panels allow the back waves from the speakers to reflect out of the angled port along the width of the front of the cabinet and up to the player. This simple yet effective design yields very noticeable results, with a more balanced tone that doesn’t attenuate or boost any frequencies. This allows every note your speaker produces to be heard as it should be. These cabinets are used by professionals for everything from jazz to metal to country and perform exceptionally in all environments.
Port City Wave Cabinets can match most larger cabinets in terms of volume and depth. When you dig into a bend or a chord, you will hear and feel the difference these cabinets make. Great tone is vital for great musicians and we are sure you’ll love your Wave Cabinet once you hear what you’ve been missing. This vertical version of our 2×12 Wave Cabinet is intended for players who prefer a more direct sound from their speakers because the sound is produced physically closer to the player’s ears.
If you are unsure about which speakers would be best for you, please contact us with details about your setup and playing style so we can recommend the speakers that would best suit your needs. If you are interested in adding a stereo/mono backplate to your cabinet, simply add the “Stereo/Mono jack plate” to your cart and we will modify your cabinet back panel prior to shipping.
All Port City cabinets are constructed with 13-ply void-free marine grade Baltic Birch and come loaded with a proprietary Kimber internal wiring harness and a Switchcraft jack.
