BIG sound, tiny cab. From hi-fi to old school. Freakishly loud and fat.
When we launched the One10 in 2015 it blew everyone away - no-one expects a cab this small to have such a huge warm sound, or go so loud. It's very versatile tonally because the 10CR250 driver has amazing treble extension with cone output running to almost 6kHz and dome output to 10kHz+. However it can't do sparkly clean tweetery sounds as well as a cab with a good tweeter - and that's where the new One10T comes in!
You know that thing you like about great 4x10" + tweeter designs - the big fat lows, the dynamic response, the smooth mids with tons of treble clarity. It's that. But with far wider dispersion around the room so you don't have to stand in one spot to hear your tone. And it's less than a quarter the size and a fraction of the weight - but two of these will outperform most 410s, especially classic models.
So that's you bass guitarists sorted for the best tiny super-versatile cab ever. What about upright bassists and doublers? Everything that made the One10 great for double bass is here - plus the extra acoustic vibes from the tweeter's open airy tones. The better your pickup/mic set-up, the more you can turn the HF control up for a proper dose of finger on string reality.
Existing Barefaced owners - here's some ways this can pair up:
It's a perfect match for a One10 to make a two cab stack - and if you want your older One10 to match visually then we can sell you a 'script logo' grill on its own. If you have a Two10S and an amp that runs down to 2.7 ohm you can make a 3x10CR vertical stack. If you have a Four10, Six10 or Eight10 then a One10T is best used separately - but is a great way to get your big rig tone in less LOUD scenarios. If you have a Big Baby 2 or Big Twin 2 then a One10T is a great lower volume full-range alternative - the inherent fatness does good things when Fletcher-Munson isn't being so kind to your tone...

How is this possible?
Superficially the One10T looks like a generic small bass practice cab, albeit a very nicely finished one. But nothing could be further from the truth - it is a totally abnormal little cab! Here’s why:
The Barefaced 10CR250 driver. This is totally unique design, the product of a long design process by myself (Alex @ Barefaced) and Jerry (Chief Engineer) at Eminence. It isn’t a 10” version of our 12XN driver, it share the same goals of wide dispersion and high volume displacement but aims for a warmer fatter more characterful tone.
The Hybrid Resonator enclosure. Another design that’s unique to Barefaced, this dual-tuned semi-aperiodic enclosure allowed us to increase the efficiency of the 10CR driver without losing bass response or needing a huge cabinet. Those changes also increased the bandwidth of the driver.
It has a top quality low distortion tweeter - nothing radical or unique, just not skimping on costs.
It has a custom made crossover, designed here at Barefaced, based on detailed measurements of on and off-axis frequency magnitude and phase and impedance magnitude and phase of the drivers, and then simulation of the crossover designs before building and testing and measuring again.
Despite the powerful ceramic magnet woofer and tweeter, and big complex crossover, the One10T manages to be incredibly light at only ~8kg / 18lbs - this is due to Barefaced’s pioneering use of dual-density plywood and complex CNC machined construction, to make an ultra-lightweight cab that’s still gig tough.
And finally, regardless all of the engineering innovation, materials science, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, wave theory and lab measurements, we come back to the fact that we play music, I play bass, and I want something that SOUNDS awesome. It does. Job done.

Hi, I'm pleased with the One10 I have, so easy to carry and set up. However, I'm now playing in a rock covers band and finding that I have to go pretty loud to get through, particularly in medium/larger clubs with stages etc. And then the tone seems to suffer. I have a Darkglass 500 head.
What is the best way to go? Lightweight is important! A second One10, a Two10? Or something different? I think I'd like a fatter low end, but with maybe a bit sharper top end when some numbers need it. Tweeter?
Oh, what is the best placement for the one10 in gig situations. I'm always at the back with everyone stood in front with the one10 on the floor. Would it be better to raise the speaker on a (small) stand, or is floor resonance useful?
Alex responds: A rock covers band sounds pretty loud for a single One10! Adding a One10T will make it fatter and louder and give more treble brightness. Where to place the cab depends on the room and situation. You generally want at least one solid room boundary nearby (floor or solid wall), more nearby solid boundaries give more lows, fewer cost you lows.

My One10 arrived earlier this week. On arrival I found the box to be dented quite a bit. The cabinet however has not suffered any damage at all thanks to the superb packaging. That really payed off so compliments for that!
What a gem that little One10 is! I tried it out at home with a Crate Power Block which isn´t even a bass amp but it gives me an idea of what a powerhouse this cabinet is. Next week I will take it to our rehearsal room and introduce it to my Eden top. I expect it to be a revelating event.
Thank you so much for your service Alex, I´m a happy camper!

Yes they sound great, just the look which is a little unusual :)
