Guitar Cabinets

All Reeves cabinets are constructed of finger jointed 3/4" marine birch plywood. Their cabinets feature Slot Load Venting for improved bass response.s.

Metal inserts are standard on the back panels of every Reeves speaker and combo cabinet. This method ensures a tight and secure panel free of "stripping out" common with just using wood screws.

R2x12W Cabinet

The Reeves R2x12W extension cabinets utilizes Wave Breaker  technology of deflecting internal sound waves of the speaker.  Wave Breaker  is a synthetic large cell foam placed on the back cabinet wall, directly behind the speaker magnet, that will reduce standing wave/back wave from the speaker.  Why do we want to reduce standing waves in a speaker cabinet?

  1. To reduce internal reflections from eventually being reflected back through the cone (or port), where they'd add delayed & distorted output to the original cone output.
  2. The cumulative effect of the out-of-phase cone rear output reaching yours ears together with the driver's direct radiation is timing errors plus reinforcement and cancellation of certain frequencies in a series of peaks and troughs that are discordant.
  3. When Wave Breaker  is placed behind the speaker these back waves are absorbed and broken up in the wave breaker molecular structure. This prevents the bounce back and therefore prevents the distortion and phasing issues.

Loaded with Reeves Vintage Purple 8 Ohm Speakers.

VINTAGE PURPLE SPEAKERS

The Vintage Purple speakers were developed to fill a void in the market place when the Fane speakers that were originally loaded into Hiwatt cabinets in the '70s went out of production.

The Vintage Purple 12" speaker is built on a Cast Aluminum frame with a 56-oz. magnet and a 2" voice coil. We took an original Fane speaker from a vintage Hiwatt cabinet, refined several prototypes until we replicated that magical tone.

100db / 75 watt / 16-ohm
