The Port City Wave™ cabinets are totally unique in their appearance however, the magic of this cabinet lies within. This patent pending design is truly something special. The Port City Wave™ cabinet is constructed with a 45-degree angle sound deflecting panel located at the back of the cabinet. (Between the top of the cab and the backpanel.) This panel is dadoed on both sides of the cabinet for ultimate support. Internal sound waves are projected from the back of the speaker down to the bottom of the cabinet where another 45-degree panel projects sound waves towards the front of the cabinet. From there an angled port which runs the width of the cabinet and projects these sound waves out and up towards you. This allows those sound waves from the rear of the speaker to mix with the sound waves from the front of the speaker. This gives an effect similar to that of your sound coming from a PA system. Your tone is balanced, full and clear.
The Port City Wave is not designed to specifically boost or cut any certain frequencies. It is designed to harness all the sound your speaker produces. The Port City Wave cabinets work well with all styles of music. The 2×12 and 2×12 OS Port City Wave cabinets can match most 4×12 cabinets in its volume and depth. When you dig into a bend or chord you can hear and feel the difference with this cabinet. Good tone is vital to a good musician, however, great tone and lots of it is what great musicians deserve. The design, while simple, is proven. At Port City we are sure you will love your Wave cabinet once you finally hear what you’ve been missing!
The OS cabinets are “oversized” so in addition to being larger they have a greater low mid presence.
