The Genz Benz GB1288T-UQ Uber Quad - named after it's unique, four speaker design. This compact, multi-driver cabinet features 4 separate drivers of varying sizes, which produce an incredible 3 dimensional tone.
The GB1288T-UQ Uber Quad cabinet is excellent for bassists using extended range 6 and 7 string instruments. It has a signature tone however, that is ideal for any bassist looking to add a new element of depth, warmth and clarity to their tone. The all important mid range is handled by the two 8 inch Neodymium speakers in separate, sealed internal enclosures providing thick, tight, warm mids without honk or harshness. These separate chambers are extremely compact which enhances the response and tight suspension of the driver's mechanical performance.
The GB1288T-UQ Uber Quad is a 600 watt 8 ohm cabinet that sounds great on its own but can be an impressive stack when using 2 Uber Quads or when stacked with a GB 115T-UB.
As part of the Uber Bass series the cabinet features a distinctive nubby vinyl along with our classic grille and silver piping, Edge-Lift handles, Speakon and 1/4 inch inputs, 100 Watt Tweeter Level control and crossover design based on a combination of electronic and electro-acoustic principals. This yields a combination of crossover slopes that result in smooth multi- dimensional composite acoustic response.
All Genz Benz bass cabinets offer 1/4 inch and Speakon connections, along with a variable tweeter level control for flexible connection options and additional tone shaping.
Parallel Inputs - Two 1/4 inch full range inputs are provided. Either one may be used for input from the bass amp. Use these two inputs when 'daisy-chaining' 2 cabinets together.
Full Range Speakon Input - Genz Benz recommends using this input with the appropriate cable when connecting to a high powered bass amp - 400 watts or more.
Tweeter Level Control
This controls the amount of signal to the tweeter. Genz Benz recommends starting with the control at 50 percent. Then balance the tweeter output to the cabinet's speaker output in combination with your instrument's pick-up tone and amplifier clarity.
