Phil Jones Bass (PJB) announces the arrival of the company’s new Cab 27 (model# C-27) bass . The C-27 is a two way compact high-performance bass instrument loudspeaker that features 2 proprietary PJB 4 ohm 7-inch drivers wired in series (8 ohm total) designed to handle high power levels of up to 200 Watts 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 of 30 Hz to 25 KHz. The C- 27’s full range and smooth frequency response enables it to easily double as a vocal monitor or as a music playback speaker.
The dimensions are 16.5” Wide x 13” High x 12.5” Deep, with a weight of 29 Lbs. Features include heavy duty vinyl/carpet covering, “kick proof” shock mounted steel grill, heavy duty recessed handle for easy carrying, 2 x Neutrik Speakon NL4 connectors, and rubber feet positioned to allow the cabinet to be used vertically or horizontally. Price is $299.99 Street.
Though small by bass amp standards it is fully capable of handling 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. PJB employs a full size anechoic chamber for acoustic measurements and a laser scanning Doppler interferometer to analyze cone movement.
Established in 2002, PJB and AIRPULSE Guitar Amps are divisions of Phil Jones American Acoustic Development. PJB is dedicated to using the latest technology in the design of compact bass amps and loudspeakers that achieve highest in fidelity and volume. Phil Jones owns several patents for loudspeaker technology.
