GENZLER AMPLIFICATION is proud to launch our new brand with the introduction of a uniquely new approach to bass instrument loudspeaker design, the Bass Array12-3.

Although the same size as many premium 12's 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 the BA12-3's 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.

BA12-3 Bass Array
I've very impressed with this cab, light and punchy with an amazing clear voice. I've paired it with my Ampeg V4B and have really enjoyed the clarity of the highs and when using serious distortion it provides a clear honk-free drive sounds unlike the honk I hear on some of the modern neo+horn cabs that I've tried. Two gigs and six practices in, I'm going to keep it! :)

Spectacular sound! The surprise was...90 degrees to either side the sound does not change. The best disbursement of mids and highs I have ever experienced.

SPACE AGE, STATE OF ART!!!
5 Amazing Bass amplification! By: Michael Christenson Jan 8, 2016 WOWZERS WOWZERS WOWZERS!!!:woot: That's my impressions of the Magellan 800 and Genzler BA 12-3 cabs continuing demo with my NS-2! Today I separated the 2 Genzler Bass Array 12-3 cabs from the M-800 amp and connected them to my 1968 Ampeg a/b 100W amp. Sounds fantastic! Even dimed out the Ampeg vol and gain, pulled out the Ultra Low knob, all amp EQ set at 12:00...as soon as I struck the open B string our dog ran for cover In our bedroom and under our bed, hahahaha:roflmao: I stood in front of the cab 20' away and STILL the cab pressure was too great for my ears and I felt like throwing:vomit:up, the gut punch is that monsterous! WOWZERS!!! And that was out of a 100W head! Love these BA 12-3 cabs! The girth was amazing, clarity and growl prevailed thru the cabs. No farting out or popping. I was tongue in cheek whether or not these cabs would retain all the goodness that my Ampeg provides, warmth, full round lows, strong mids, girth, punchiness. But the BA 12-3 cabs added more sustain, piano clarity and every nuisances of each note plucked. Guys/Gals, I'm not making one penny with this Demo, honestly, no expectations what so ever, but I'm here to say to you, there is no other cab that I've played thru that sounds THIS GREAT. Now, connect 2 Genzler BA 12-3 cabs to the Magellan 800...HOLY FREAKIN COW!!!:woot: A sound and volume level that I thought was only possible thru 1-2 SVT Fridges. Now I'm very happy that I sold my SVT Fridge and 410HLF, so I don't have to lug those heavy cabs but instead now I can carry two 12-3 cabs that only weigh in at 37# each AND perform as huge as I need them to. One of these cabs is plenty for every indoor gig save indoor arena, then 2 will cover that gig a plenty. I'll be willing to say that Genzler will have a tough time keeping up with orders with both the M-800 and Bass Array 12-3 cabs. I know bebass, Michael LoMax has sold out already and has an order in for more cabs. Still 1-2 weeks out yet for the M-800 to arrive at Michael's store. Jeff receives them next Friday then he will send them out to the dealers. I HIGHLY recommend these amazing bass equipment!:bassist: You'll hear your Basses like you have never did before. And you thought it was never possible, right? :D
