Whitinsville, MA (December 29, 2014) – Bergantino Audio Systems announces the NV412T ‘New Vintage’ bass guitar speaker cabinet (ProNet price $1499 USD), a sealed cabinet with a thunderous vintage sound.
The NV412T which weighs in at 108 lbs. (approx. 49 kilograms) is an addition to the NV family of Bergantino Audio Systems speakers (which includes the NV115 and the NV610T). This NV412T is a very ‘organic’ sounding speaker with a smooth top end and subtle transition between the woofers and the tweeter. The new NV412T is very responsive, with a lot of presence and tight note integrity from the bottom to the top of the fingerboard. This also lends to a speaker which makes it easier to get strong, full notes with less playing effort.
The ‘New Vintage’ NV412T series bass guitar speaker cabinet incorporates 4-12” with a Tweeter (and level control). The NV412T cabinet is sealed (rather than the traditional ported design) which provides the cabinet with a tighter low-end and more immediate bass response. It comes with ‘tilt-back’ casters installed with full-length amp glides on the back to facilitate loading and unloading. Side mounted recessed handles (at the right height to lift these onto any stage) and a recessed, top mounted handle system makes tilting back and rolling this speaker a breeze. The NV series cabinet employs a precision tuned architectural design and the enclosure is built with the finest 100% Baltic birch plywood available. The NV412T is covered in traditional tolex for durability (no more carpet fuzz for your cat to claw) and it employs a rigid black grille to protect the drivers.
The NV412T woofers have ceramic magnets with vented pole pieces and the low-end is full and round. The NV412T also utilizes a unique tweeter matched with a custom designed phase-coherent crossover network that extends the range of these cabinets to 12KhZ. A tweeter level control on the back of the cabinet allows turning the tweeter all the way off and removes it from the circuit, so if you want the ‘old-school vibe’ – no problem. With the tweeter on, these cabs can be slap monsters to match high-output demands – with the tweeters off, just great low end and midrange goodness. If you trend a little more old school, the NV412T can easily replace your worn 4-10” or any of the ‘vintage’ 4×12” cabinets from the 60s/70s – the same sonic character as the old days, but with more attitude, higher power handling and increased clarity and focus. The Bergantino Audio NV412T will be available for shipment beginning the first of April 2015.
