Taking the classic 4x12 concept and elevating it to a new artform.
The 4x12 Kustom Double Cross guitar speaker cabinet has a top, bottom and 2 sides all cut from a single sheet of virtually void-free Baltic birch plywood, recognized for its rich, "woody" tonal qualities. Kustom has found that cutting the cabinet's entire 15mm frame from a single sheet of birch enhances the overall resonance. Each piece has similar structural characteristics and density patterns. Accordingly, the individual wood pieces resonate together, creating stronger fundamental tones with naturally enhanced harmonics. Furthermore, using modern CNC machines that are computer indexed results in incredible accuracy when cutting the wood. Once assembled, the Kustom speaker cab's pieces fit together perfectly, with tighter glue joints, for increased strength.
Taking this concept even further, a straight-front Kustom Double Cross 412 speaker cabinet is also equipped with a 1-piece Baltic birch baffle board. The baffle itself is thinner than the cabinet's shell, measuring 12mm in thickness. Testing at Kustom has shown that a somewhat thinner baffle contributes desirable resonance to the speaker cab's overall sound, creating more lively, less rigid, tonal qualities.
Naturally, the Kustom Double Cross 412 speaker cabinet with the classic slant front is built from 2 pieces of virtually void-free Baltic birch, as is necessary with the slant-type design. Again, thickness is 12mm for responsive performance.
Kustom Double Cross 412 speaker cabinets all use 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, a favorite of professional guitarists around the world. These premium speakers deliver rich, full-bodied tone with great definition and sustain—you'll quickly hear why they have earned a reputation for excellence. Overall power handling is rated at 240 watts.
Double Cross 412 guitar cabinets are wired for mono or stereo operation that is selectable using a switch on the back of the cabinet. When using a cabinet in the traditional mono mode, the 4 speakers are rated at 16 Ohms. In stereo mode, 2 speakers function for the left side and two speakers function for the right side with a total impedance of 8 Ohms per side.
Visually, Kustom Double Cross 412 guitar speaker cabinets are stunning. Total boutique quality. And rightly so, as they are hand-crafted at the Kustom Shop in Cincinnati, Ohio. Beautiful, high-quality coverings, Vintage Black Weave Grill Cloth, removable, vintage-style castors, and rugged handles complete the package.
