The Big Twin 2 has now been replaced by the Big Twin 3. If you order a BT2 your order will be automatically upgraded to a BT3. For more details about why the BT3 is even better, click on this link!

Extreme loudness and full-range accuracy that lays waste to all but the biggest conventional bass cabs.

The size of a 4x10" but taller and slimmer so it's easier to move and easier to hear with the output and bottom of a 4x10" plus 1x18" stack, plus far superior dispersion and quicker transient response. For everyone from those wanting to hear their bass like it's through huge studio monitors to those stacking up the gnarliest FX chains and dominating the mix with layers of sound cutting through, sitting under and slotting between walls of guitar noise.

I'm the proud owner of a Big Twin 2, and I can honestly say that in 40 years of playing, I have never experienced a better cab - it is pure sonic Nirvana!.

Many thanks, and keep building the best cabs a bassist could ever want!

Hello again! My sincere apologies! I got some unplanned things again! I promise ill come back for a one10 next year! I didn’t know you’d set up a link that fast!

Btw I just used 2 BB2s and a dubster 2 (i remove all the hypex though, using qsc amps)

The sound was awesome!!! I got internationally successful jazz artist (not giving names but big names) complementing the sound all night! The qsc (gxd series) really bring out the best in them! Thanks for your marvelous products and all the knowledge that was available on the old page.

Again my apologies for the change pf plan! I’ll revert next year!

Cheers

Last and final update I hope. After the previously mentioned phone call and without notification my cab was loaded on a truck and delivered a few hours later. I have inspected it and it appears in good working order and thus far my toddler has informed me that it is plenty loud enough. Thank you for the superb product and the willingness to help when issues had arose. I look forward to many many years and many many gigs with this, and so does my back.

As the BT3 speakers break in do they get louder or is it more of a tone thing? I did a rehearsal with it last night and I had to run my amps master volume considerably louder than with my previous 1x12 and 4x8 rig. Normally I'd have the amp volume 1/2way up. With the BT3 I had it about 75%. Far louder than I've ever run it and it still didn't seem to fill the room in the same way. The backline rig at the rehearsal space is a mesa mpulse600 with a diesel 2x15 cab loaded with Eminence Legends. That's what I normally rehearse with because it's there already. That rig I usually have the master volume at 25/30% and it is WAY louder and room filling.

So was feeling a little nervous after that first time using it but also know there is a break in period.

Just curious on your thoughts.

Thanks.

Alex responds: Sorry to hear about this - no, they don't get louder, the tone just gets a bit cleaner/prettier. It might be that the cab is a lot cleaner than your old rig, so you're not getting the extra perceived loudness from speaker distortion. There's a tiny chance your cab has a manufacturing fault with mismatched polarity speakers but as we check that it's pretty unlikely - you can check this by applying a 9V battery to a 1/4" lead plugged into the cab (with no amp connected) and watching to make sure both woofers jump in the same direction. I'll be perfectly honest, this is quite odd because the BT3 is a very loud cab! Let me know what you find out.

Josh replies: Just an update. I think you were right about the head (trickfish class D) and cab being to clean. Took a little to adjust to the sound. I love the sound for my upright but have found I much prefer my class a/b head for electric when paired with the BT3. 600watts of solidstate A/B power is gnarly through the BT3
