Sorry, this Port City Vertical 2×12 OS Wave Cabinet listing has sold. The Port City Wave cabinets are totally unique in their appearance however, the magic of this cabinet lies within. The patented Port City Wave Cabinets are a fundamentally different approach to the speaker cabinet. Rather than creating a rectangular box, adding speakers, and hoping for the best, Port City developed their Wave cabinets to physically interact with the speakers in a more musical way. As those sound waves slow down they become standing waves which result in a loss of clarity. With the Port City Wave cabinet those sound waves are reflected out the front of the cabinet which results in MUCH more volume along with a MUCH more dynamic response.
This is partly because of Port City’s ported 2×12 Wave cabinet, but the amp also features an output impedance selector knob (4, 8, and 16 ohms) that lets the Sahana shine through any of your cabs.

Has anybody tried to build a cab like the port city ones? Ported designs often dampen the waves with stufffing, and TL designs can use these too, traditional ported designs don’t try to guide the wave to the port.
