Phil Jones Bass Cab 67 6x7 500W Bass Cab Overview
Overview by Phil Jones Bass
The Cab 67 is a two way compact high-performance bass instrument loudspeaker that features 6 proprietary PJB 4 ohm 7-inch drivers wired in series designed to handle high power levels of bass frequencies with extremely low distortion. A proprietary 3 inch (magnetic liquid cooled voice coil) cone tweeter augments the high-frequency component giving it a fully extended range. The result is a tweeter that has great dynamic range, lower distortion and smoother frequency response.
Cabinet construction includes panels of plywood and medium density fibreboard providing it rigidity and less vibration, while making it lightweight. Other features include heavy duty vinyl/carpet covering, “kickproof” shock mounted steel grill, heavy duty recessed handle for easy carrying and rubber feet positioned to allow the cabinet to be used vertically or horizontally. Though small by bass amp standards it is fully capable of handing 5 string bass fundamentals down to the low B string.
The cabinet is precisely tuned using multiple loudspeaker analysis programs to reduce cone movement at the lowest frequencies, and to increase low frequency output. We employ a full size anechoic chamber for acoustic measurements and a laser scanning Doppler interferometer to analyse cone movement in 3D across the whole audio spectrum. PJB has put huge emphasis on research and development which is why no other small cabinets sound like a PJB.
