Detuned cabs?

This is just a curiosity thread. Has anyone played through a detuned cab? like a Vintone or Mad sound? They're supposed to be sooo much better...

First time i hear about this.

Just what is a "Detuned Cab" and why is it so big?

Detuned cabs are the answer to obtaining the optimum sound from a cabinet in a controlled environment. What's the best cabinet design? Something between a large sealed cabinet and a slightly smaller but still large bass reflex design: a "detuned" cabinet with a single driver. This is essentially a cabinet built for two identical drivers with one driver left out and it's mounting hole left open.

The port is not tuned to any specific frequency but instead allows a broad range of frequencies to be reversed through the shallow duct. Instead of having a brick-wall bass roll-off, the low end rolls off gradually but slightly slower than the raw driver. The large cabinet does not sound boxey so mids and highs sound three dimensional, unlike a sealed cabinet which sounds comparatively sterile.

We sometimes call this an "open-front" design since it is like having an open-back cabinet where you bring along your own wall. The closed back gives consistent sound regardless of room placement; therefore the port cannot be on the back. The only caveat is one that applies to every other design: that elevating the cabinet seriously reduces low frequency output, so -always leave it on the floor.

Sound sinteresting. I'm all for a more organic midrange (at the end of the day it is the most important part of your guitar sound) but more treble leaves me worried with a 6505

WOuldn't pay the daft prices they are no doubt asking for them though.

My Avatar 4x12 is detuned to two V30s on the top two slots.
It sounds a bit more open and fills the room better in my opinion. Definitely try it out if you're looking to experiment. Make sure you wire everything correctly and use the correct ohmage and wattage matching!

I detuned my 1960A and that lasted about 2 hours. It is great with an amp that needs more bottom oomph, but with a 6505+ it just got to loose on the bottom end and flubby. This is probably the nicest detuned cab I have seen and partnered with a SLO none the less.
