Bergantino Audio Systems NV Series Bass Guitar Speaker Cabinets

Unique in the Bergantino Audio Systems line of speakers are the New Vintage NV series of bass guitar speaker cabinets. The NV series are available in three driver configurations; 1-15” w/ 6” Midrange, 6-10” w/ Tweeter and 4-12” w/ Tweeter. The NV series cabinets are sealed (rather than the traditional ported design) which provides the NV cabinets with a tighter and more immediate bass response. The NV 610T and NV412T both come with ‘tilt-back’ casters installed with full-length amp glides on the back to facilitate loading and unloading. All of the NV cabinets have side mounted recessed handles (at the right height to lift these onto any stage), while the NV610T and NV412T employ a recessed, top mounted handle system that makes tilting these back and rolling them a breeze. The cabinetry on the NV series employ a precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the finest 100% Baltic birch plywood. The NV series are covered in traditional tolex for durability (no more carpet fuzz for your cat to claw) and they all employ a rigid black grille to protect the drivers.

The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No ‘off-the-shelf’ parts are used. Woofers have ceramic magnets with vented pole pieces and the low-end on this series of cabinets is full and round. The NV series have remained a favorite of finger style and pick players because of the tight-creamy low end found with these cabinets. The NV115 incorporates a 6” midrange mated to a custom phase-coherent crossover network that extends the range of the cabinet up to 6.5KhZ. Want a little more clarity and open sound, but don’t like tweeters? This is THE cabinet for you! Sounds great with tube amplifiers (pull out the V4B, Model T, Hiwatt, etc.) and this cab will make you smile. Vintage heaven!

The NV610T and NV412T each utilize a unique tweeter matched with a custom phase-coherent crossover network that extends the range of these cabinets to 12KhZ. Both have a tweeter level control on the back and turning the tweeter all the way off 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. Replace your tired 8-10 speaker cabinet with the NV610T and you get more flexibility, smaller cabinet with lighter weight and improve your sonic footprint, whether R&B, Metal or Funk.

If you trend a little more old school, the NV412T (which uses the same tweeter control design) 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.

Bergantino Audio Systems ‘Carbon Neo’ CN Series Speaker Cabinets

The Bergantino Audio Systems ‘Carbon Neo’ CN series of lightweight speaker cabinets nod their head to the traditional HD series but have a different function. The CN series is available in four driver configurations; 1-12” w/ Tweeter, 2-12” w/ Tweeter, 2-10” w/ Tweeter and 4-10” w/ Tweeter. These are the lightest speaker cabinets that we make. The precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the finest lightweight Italian poplar plywood (with Baltic birch baffle boards) selected to our specifications. This lightweight cabinet material (along with the lightweight magnet material) helps reduce the overall cabinet weight. The lightweight carbon covering is used for cabinet cover material and is also lighter than the traditional tolex covering found on most speaker cabinets. A rigid black grille is added to protect the drivers from damage.

The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No ‘off-the-shelf’ parts are used. Woofers with Neodymium magnet material are used for the low frequency section of the CN series cabinets. The Neodymium drivers have a punchier low-end and a very sweet midrange that is placed a little more forward in the sound field when compared to the HD series. Fretless and upright players will often prefer the CN cabinets because of how the midrange ‘speaks’ with their instruments. The CN series cabinets have a high intelligibility tweeter mated to the woofers through a custom designed phase-coherent crossover with a tweeter control. Because of the increased cost of the Neodymium magnet material, imported wood for the cabinetry and the unique covering material, the CN series speakers cost more than the HD series, but may just be the right match for your playing style and weight needs.

Bergantino High-Definition HD Series Cabinets

For Bergantino Audio it all starts with the High-Definition HD series of bass guitar speaker cabinets. The HD series are available in four driver configurations; 1-12” w/ Tweeter, 2-12” w/ Tweeter, 2-10” w/ Tweeter and 4-10” w/ Tweeter (this model comes with removable casters). The cabinetry on the HD series employ a precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the finest 100% Baltic birch plywood available. The HD series are covered in traditional tolex for durability (no more carpet fuzz for your cat to claw) and they all employ a rigid black grille to protect the drivers.

The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No ‘off-the-shelf’ parts are used. Woofers have ceramic magnets w/ vented pole pieces and the low-end on this series of cabinets is full and round – they can handle high power output from your amplifier. The HD series have remained a favorite of finger style and pick players because of the tight-creamy low end found with these cabinets. Each of the HD series cabinets has a high intelligibility tweeter mated to the woofers through a custom designed phase-coherent crossover with a tweeter control. Bergantino HD series cabinets are not as heavy as some of the other cabinets available, but will produce a more accurate, full-bodied and authentic representation of your bass guitar in live and studio settings.
