Mesa has packed an array of innovative features into their exceptional range of premium-built PowerHouse™ Bass Cabinets, including the PowerHouse 2x12.. This diverse series of cabinets offer an unsurpassed level of musical versatility and player convenience through the following features:
Aviation Style Bracing – A radical bracing concept borrowed from the aircraft industry. All structural reinforcement is “sculpted-out” to form an extremely strong skeleton that reduces weight, increases rigidity and improves structural integrity.
Tri-Ported Design – An innovative front facing, multi-vent porting system that uses individually tuned triangular ports to enhance each part of the bass spectrum. This goes way beyond the old standard design that has all your tone blowing out of one large port hole!
Player Control Network™ – A proprietary new “back-panel” interface that provides unprecedented stylistic versatility and gig friendly convenience with the following features:
Player Control Network™ includes 3-position switch for crossover frequency, adjustable L-Pad for blending the right amount of high frequency driver, re-settable horn protection plus standard ¼ inch and high-current SPEAK-ON locking connectors
Style Control Crossover & Attenuator – An artistic crossover “Range” switch provides 3 distinct tonal variations: Our time-proven, detail-enhancing, sweet 5K (Normal) setting; plus the harmonic-friendly, accent-expanding snap of 4K (Sheen) and the groove-enforcing, articulate cut of 3K (Bright). This combined with our premium L-Pad horn attenuator provides players with unrivaled stylistic versatility and performance.
Instant Reset Horn Protection – A simple “one touch” reset switch provides the ultimate in convenient horn protection – No fuses, tools or digging inside the cabinet – Push & Play!
SPEAKON & ¼” Connectors – Convenient Inputs AND Paralleled Outputs are provided for both standard ¼” and SPEAKON high current, locking connectors.
When you invest in our PowerHouse Cabs, you can be confident their heavy-duty construction represents the world’s best built, best sounding, easiest to move bass enclosures ever made! But don’t believe us. Make the comparison yourself. Then you’ll understand why it’s all about Mesa for Bass!
