Pete,
Great to hear that the cabs may be available soon!
I'd really like to know the specs on the 2x12 and 3x10, especially the Neo version.
Looking forward to hearing them!

I played a 15 for years and then I got into 12s and 10s and I've found mysellf thinking I'd like to try a really nice 15 again, particularly with the added benefit of a mid driver.

The 1x15 is designed to work by itself too . The one I am getting is a 4ohm but I will be offering both 8 and 4ohm models .

They are all three way cabs with a very good tweater and 6' mid driver .

I'm looking forward to the "big guns"! Either the 3x10 or the 2x12 will most likely be my new weapon of choice.

I need to edit the original statement , I have decided to eliminate the 3X10 due to impedence issues that are expensive to justify .

The 212 will be arriving soon .

So far the 115 is really blowing me away . It has a tone of warth but total clarity thanks to the 3-way crossover and mid driver .

I plan on having them at the Dallas guitar show too.

I had the chance to stop by the shop today and check out the new cabs.
Very Nice! Seriously Nice!
I sampled the 1x15 and the 2x10 compared to my EA CXL112.
Pete's cabs are extremely well built. Fantastic grills, handles, indestructible black "sprayed on" type cabinet coating, locking corners, very cool dark red color on the surface where the speakers are mounted,etc. Beautiful cabs!
Both cabs were the same size and were larger than (and a good bit heavier than) my CXL which was to be expected. They balance very well and are very easy to carry with the well positioned handles. One speakon connector as well as one 1/4 input. A very nice tweeter attenuator on the back panel as well.

As far as the tone goes; both cabs are unique in that they are a 3 way designs including a 6" driver and a tweeter. I used an AI Focus Series II (600w) to compare all the cabs. The first cab that I tried was the 1x15. It has a very typical full low end that you would expect from a bottom vented 1x15. However, the interesting thing about the cab is that the 6" driver was instantly recognizable and present in the voice of the cab. It was very smooth and not overly forward but as I played futher up in the upper midrange, the 6" kept the tone clear and articulate. It was really cool! The tweeter was very smooth and very clean too. I played a couple of Pete's fretless and fretted basses through it. Playing some very aggressive fingerstyle and slap through the 1x15 showed the strength of the 6" driver. Very well rounded and consistant tone including some really kickin' upper mid and top end that you wouldn't expect out of a 1x15! The 1x15 is going to be around 600w or so.
The 2x10 in comparison is very punchy and direct. Very midrange oriented. It has a side by side configuration and a single from port above one of the 10s in the cabinet face instead of a bottom slot port. It has a very clear voice but it didn't have the very relaxed and effortless low end of the 15. You could eq it in, but at higher volume levels with a low B string in action, the 10s strained a little bit. I think it would be very well suited for 4 string players, especially "slap" style players. It would also mate very well with the 1x15 for a monster rig. Pete said that the cab should be rated around 1000w! He's putting in some very high power speakers in this baby!
Both cabs were 4 ohm cabs and took as much of the power as the Focus would put out. We had to be a little careful not to offend nearby office workers in another building!

The 8 ohm EA CXL was voiced most similarly to the 1x15. It didn't have quite the upper mid clarity of the Skjold cab most likely due to the lack of that 6" driver, however the CXL was surprisingly louder at the initial volume settings. The CXL in notoriously efficient, however as the power was applied to the different cabs, the 1x15 answered up pretty well.
Pete is going to be getting in a 2x12 cab in the next couple weeks that promises to be an absolute monster. I suspect it will have all the lowend of the 1x15, a little more punch and a lot more volume capacity.
I should mention that both the Skjold cabs that I tried out were traditional ceramic magnet varieties. Neos are in the works and will surely cut down on the weight a good bit. With Neos, I think both of these cabs would have been lighter than my CXL.
Pete and I also discussed the posibility of a 1x12 cab that may come along in the future.
Talking prices with Pete, these cabs are going to be more than competative in today's market! They're going to be significantly more affordable than some of the bigger name "boutique" or near boutique cabs.
My guess is that I'm going to really fall for the Neo 2x12 in my quest for a "one cab" setup. I love the 12s!
Sorry about the conspicuous lack of pics but I'm sure that Juneau will be along shortly with some!
Happy Easter everyone!
