Aussie Bass Cabinet Builders

Post by bassketcase » 12 Oct 2017, 13:10

Hi All

I wonder if we could populate a list of Aussie bass cab makers to compliment the aussie bass builders list. I am thinking those in the vein of fearful/audiokinesis esque type builders but, any local makers really.

I know Wayne Jones makes amazing high end 2x10 hifi bass cabs. Others?

^^^^
He's a guitar cab builder who happens to sell cabs branded for bass - they're guitar cabs with bass speakers inside - not built according to speaker specs with correct cab volume or construction.

Otherwise you have Vase I guess.

I highly rate Lorantz cabs and speakers from Melbourne. Are they still making cabs?

I know a friend of mine got his PA speakers built by Lorantz quite a few years ago now. I'm guessing they may still do "made to order" stuff?

I don't believe there is any manufacturer or company who make Fearful cabs as such. I think a majority of Fearful cabs I have seen have been DIY'd be individuals. I do know that "Iamaiden" on here made his own with his Dad.....

I believe there is a builder called Holloway Sound that does semi custom cabs and 3 way cabs. They are not Fearfuls though.
