Barefaced Bass - Ultra lightweight high power bass guitar speaker cabinets
UPSETTER 110

Handmade British 1 x 10" AVD guitar loudspeaker cabinet from Barefaced Audio

It’s a single 10” driver with a bigger warmer tone than a closed-back 1x12” but the room-filling clarity and air of an open-backed cab. It’s so light it weighs less than a guitar in a case and so small it’s almost airline hand luggage!

This was the first model we launched in the Barefaced Diffractor range of guitar cabs. Originally called the GX, we decided it had far too much character to just be an acronym, so now it’s the Upsetter 110.

We no longer just offer two versions, with American or British sounding Eminence drivers. Instead the standard speaker is now a British toned Celestion G10 Vintage and you can choose from silver or black cloth grills and British Raging Green or Black In Black tolex.



And if the G10 Vintage isn’t the tone you want then you can choose to have literally any Celestion 10” guitar speaker in the Upsetter 110 -

Barefaced Upsetter 110 Guitar Loudspeaker Cabinet

If you’re anywhere within Europe (including the UK obviously) we have a one month trial period. In the unlikely event that you don’t like the cab you just have to pay the return shipping (we can arrange that if you’re in the UK) and you get a full refund. Please ask for advice if the cab isn’t doing what you want - we know our cabs better than anyone and will help you get the best out of them!

We do not offer our guitar cabinets unloaded. They are designed for the drivers we put inside them and have tested them with. It is not an option to purchase a cabinet without drivers.

Time to dispatch 3 - 4 weeks.

 All prices include shipping.

CELESTION Says:
Following the great reviews we received for the Gold 12", we realised there was also a need for a speaker that conveyed the Alnico mellowness of the original Blue, with the speed and response of a 10" driver.The G10 Gold is the ultimate 10" guitar speaker, blending unmistakable Alnico class with a rich low-end, creamy mid-range and vintage chiming top-end. Springy, warm, revealing and highly expressive, it can be used singly or in pairs to add a classy sheen to any amp, or in a 4x10 configuration for higher volume depth, warmth and shimmer, with less of the boom associated with 4x12 cabinets.

Impedance8 Ohms
Sensitivity95dB
Frequency Range 95Hz -5500kHz
Magnet Type Ceramic
Speaker Weight 1.6kg / 3.5lbs
Weight difference against stock driver -0.8kg / -1.8lbs

CELESTION Says:
The 10" that thinks it's a 12". This guitar speaker was developed to recapture the legendary sound of Celestion's 1970s 10s - a 10" speaker with a surprisingly meaty tone. Low in output but with the weighty low-end balance of a 12", the G10 Greenback features a complex, creamy mid-range and smooth, vintage top-end. In small combos this speaker adds real class, and when combined in a 4x10 gives rise to a raunchy, full-bodied tone, rich in low-end thump.

G10 Creamback

Power rating45W rms
Impedance8 Ohms
Sensitivity96dB
Frequency Range 95Hz -5500kHz
Magnet Type Ceramic
Speaker Weight 1.6kg / 3.5lbs
Weight difference against stock driver -0.8kg / -1.8lbs

CELESTION Says:
The new G10 Creamback packs everything guitar players love about Creamback speakers into a 10-inch format. Hand-built in the UK using the same production methods and materials developed for the 12-inch models, the G10 Creamback uses a ceramic magnet and a 1.75-inch voice coil to deliver 45-watt power handling. With all the punch and dynamics typical of a 10, its overall tone is warm, expressive, detailed and well-balanced.

Questions

There are basically two sorts - closed-back and open-backed. Open-backed because they were combos and needed to keep the valves cool and accessible for servicing, closed-back and sealed because that’s how most speakers were made in the 1960s.

The closed-back cabs have narrowing dispersion as frequency increases (a hi-fi speaker uses smaller speakers for higher frequencies to reduce this problem). The open-backed cabs fire sound out of the back as well as the front, so although the dispersion narrows from both front and back in much the same way as the closed-back cab, the sound coming out of the back helps fill the room with mids and highs - but that sound out of the back cancels out most of the lows (due to the inverted phase as the back of the speaker pulls when the front pushes and vice versa). In other words, open-back cabs are easier to hear around the room but the lows are thinner.

From the front it behaves much like a closed or open-backed cab. But the mids and highs coming out of the AVD at the back are amplified and dispersed around the room whilst the lows are inverted to match the lows from the front, giving lots more bottom. Basically you get twice the output of a closed back cab with an identical speaker AND even better dispersion and audibility (and far far greater output) than an open-backed cab

You see it when you look at the back of the cab - it’s the Augmented Vent Diffractor. It’s a unique Patent Pending technology that we started developing back in 2013. At low frequencies it acts as a tuned vent or Helmholtz resonator, improving efficiency, power handling and output. At mid and high frequencies it acts to diffract, disperse and couple the sound with the room for improved audibility and output especially in rooms with poor acoustics.

The increased low frequency output from the AVD may be too much for some guitarists’ tastes - so you can flick this switch and remove lows at the cab. Doing so not only changes the bass response but also increases the power handling of the cab, lowers the distortion due to motor excursion and reduces the load on your amp’s output stage. This can give you two different sweet-spots of optimum speaker overdrive or break-up and two different sweet-spots of power valve overdrive. If your sound is perfect in rehearsal but too dirty at a louder gig then engaging the Lo Cut filer will clean it up.
