Genzler Bass Array 410-3 Bass Speaker Cabinet (1000 Watts, 4x10")

Built to handle some serious power, the BA410 offers deep yet punchy tone from its four 10" speakers, and adds a sheen of clarity with a 6x3" line array.
The Genzler BA410 v3 is an extremely compact and lightweight (55 lbs) 1000-watt, 4 ohm cabinet, and is ideal for those players that need the highest powered, most dynamic performance in a single, compact cabinet design.

Although smaller than most 4 x 10" and tweeter cabinets, this innovative design blends the punch and quickness of four premium Neodymium 10" drivers in a vented bass reflex enclosure, and the performance and pattern control of a 6 x 3" Neodymium paper cone driver line array element. The placement of the line array in front, and between the 10" woofers further provides an extremely broad projection pattern, immediate quickness and clarity that is not possible with standard 4x10" designs. Also due to line array principals the all-important mid and high frequencies have a much wider horizontal dispersion with a more controlled vertical pattern. This offers the most even projection possible around the perimeter of the stage and audience.

The transition of lows, mids and highs are extremely smooth, seamless and detailed; and the force and clarity of this cabinet makes it ideal for large stages and venues

The benefits of this design platform are exponential for the player:
- Delivering full, deep, low frequency response from the high efficiency 4 x 10" woofers doing what they do best, providing excellent support of the fundamental for the lower strings of the instrument.
- Using a read more selective crossover point this design, overcomes the "beaming" (pattern narrowing) effects of a full range signal being reproduced by larger low frequency drivers which is common in many current small cabinet designs.

Lowering midrange and high frequency distortion by allowing the use of small, 3" high performance cone transducers that would otherwise be unsuitable without the increased acoustic sensitivity obtained by the array design.

Providing a much more open, smoother midrange and high frequency response because of the ideal natural characteristics of the mid-high frequency array when compared to a conventional tweeter that cannot reproduce the crucial midrange frequencies without pattern control or un-natural distortion.

"Lows feel like punches from Mike Tyson with kisses of mids and highs throughout."

As soon as I plugged this cab into my Mesa Titan Big Block V12 amp, I knew I was in for a surprise. I found myself playing sliding runs and bending notes in the first several seconds after powering up. I don't normally play that way so I knew it was the speaker cab that was inspiring me to go that direction. I just sat there and jammed. I normally play through a 4x12 Mesa cab. I also used to play through 2 ampeg 4x10 cabs, so I am used to playing through great cabs and I know how a great cab should perform. I was worried about this cab at first as it is only 55 lbs but after throwing my back out while loading my Mesa 4x12 I was willing to take the "risk". At rehearsal, I simply tasked this cab to do everything I expected from my other cabs and it did? Like I said, I'm used to big heavy cabs and this was a change for me. Highs and mids are very present while lows punch and it has no difficulty with my 5 string bass tuned down a step. It is very loud and powerful. I have not played through my Mesa 4x12 cab since I bought this cab last month. No need. I have everything I need in this 55 lb monster.
Musical Background:
5 string bass guitar. I have been gigging for 30+ years. Weekend Warrior.
Musical Style:
Almost all of it.
