Get Smooth Mids And Highs Plus Strong Low End - The Genzler Bass Array 12-3 STR Straight Bass Cabinet

Genzler Amplification is proud to launch its new brand with the introduction of a uniquely new approach to bass instrument loudspeaker design, the Bass Array 12-3 STR. Although the same size as many premium 12" and tweeter cabinets this new design is so much more complex and rewarding to the performer.

This innovative design blends the benefits of a 12" vented bass-reflex design with the performance and pattern control of a 4 x 3 neodymium driver line array element.  The benefits of combining both design platforms in an extremely compact cabinet are exponential for the player.

Full, deep, low-frequency response from the high efficiency 12" ported woofer - doing what it does best. Excellent support of the low B fundamental of 5 string instruments.

A selective crossover point overcomes the beaming (pattern narrowing) effects of a full range signal being reproduced by larger low-frequency drivers.

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

This design provides a 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.

What this means in the context of performance is the most focused, defined, musical, smooth, and seamless response possible throughout its entire full-range bandwidth. Additionally, the placement of the Line Array in front of the 12" woofer further provides a type of single point source projection-think of it as concentric speakers, one inside of the other, in the same linear plane.  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.
