The Big Baby 2 has now been replaced by the Big Baby 3. If you order a BB2 your order will be automatically upgraded to a BB3. For more details about why the BB3 is even better, click on this link!

Prepare to hear every detail of your tone like never before.

Huge power handling so it can move as much air as a good 4x10", keeps punching hard even on relentlessly loud gigs, wide dispersion so everyone in the venue can hear it properly, but still easy to carry with one hand. High sensitivity so you can use it with low power lightweight heads and still play louder than other small cabs. Not only for bass but arguably the most potent FRFR guitar cab yet made and a great compact PA speaker that doesn't need subwoofers to fill in the lows.

Need more output? Add a second Big Baby 3 to make a modular Big Twin 3 or a Super Mini to make a versatile modular rig with small, medium and large options to suit your gigs.

So the church just ordered the Big Twin 3 😍
I have a Big Baby 3 and am amazed by the sound quality and power of this little beast. I guess I’ll see soon just how loud the BT3 is...

I use my Big Baby 3 will a tube head for amplifying my guitars, and it sounds fantastic.

I represented JL Audio for years, and am a driver junky... BTW, the cabs are fab! I've played to many thousands of audience members over the past years with them, using a Demeter VTBP-M-800D. Just a wicked good rig!

I was flabbergasted by how fast my cab arrived. About a whole month earlier than expected. Thank you, guys!
Also, it’s an incredible piece of gear. I absolutely fell in love with it and want to share that with the world.

Just over a year ago I took delivery of my BB3 and thus far am so impressed with it. I really love the VOX grill cloth as it takes me back to my youth when I used an AC30.

Just wanted to update . I’ve had this cab for over a year now and it gets played at least 10 hours a week with a live church gospel music situation . It gets played hard and loud with loud drums and organ and Leslie and I am so impressed with it! It’s hard to describe how big and crystal clear and accurate this little cab is . I never get lost on stage ! No matter how loud other get ! Good job Alex and the team . If I had 2 of these I wouldn’t need front of house 😎

Dear Alex and magicians,

I absolutely love my Big Baby 3! Fellow musicians are wondering why they now hear what I have been playing for years. Great sounding gear! 
I decided to buy another one to stack the Big Babies. Actually, I already ordered my second one! I happen to notice that there are no 3D-edges to hold them in place. My amp is sometimes ‘walking’ over the Big Baby and right now, I solve this by putting a layer of 1 inch thick granulaat (rubber) in between them. But I do not know if that works for a stacked duo BBs too. Do you have any tips for me?

Alex says:
Hi Niek,
Glad you're loving the BB3. I've never heard of a stacked Barefaced cab going walkabouts - the rubber feet and the fact they're heavier than tiny class D heads tends to keep them in place!
Best regards,

Guys-

I been out on the road the past 18 months with my band and the BB3 has been absolutely amazing. We've been using it for keys, particularly key bass and it sounds great every single night under so many different circumstances. 
Also, it sounds really good on baritone guitar. I know it's designed for bass but with a slight amount of EQ on the amp, it can sound great for baritone as well. 
I'll be buying another one soon.
Thanks,
Matt
Alex says: 
Hi Matt,
That's so great to hear! We've just got a baritone guitar here so I'm excited to test it with that - I'm playing a lot of chords on normal 4-string bass through a BB3 and it works so well, you hear every detail.
Best regards,

I managed to try my B25 on the BB2 in a group setting yesterday. I am sincerely amazed by the result. I could use it no problem without overdriving it. Those 12" are amazing!
Would the 10" cabinets sound a bit more "ampeg"?
Sergio
Alex says: 
Hi Sergio,
That’s great! Yes, the 10CR are much less accurate, warmer and fatter.
Best regards
