The top, bottom and 2 sides of a Coupe 412 speaker cabinet are cut from a single sheet of virtually void-free Baltic Birch plywood, recognized for its rich, "woody" tonal qualities. Kustom has found that cutting the cabinet's entire 15mm frame from a single sheet of birch enhances the overall resonance because each piece has similar structural characteristics and density patterns. Accordingly, the individual pieces of wood resonate together, creating stronger fundamental tones with naturally enhanced harmonics. Furthermore, using modern CNC machines that are Computer Indexed results in incredible accuracy when cutting the wood. Once assembled, the pieces fit together perfectly, with tighter glue joints, for increased strength.
Taking this concept even further, a Straight-front Coupe 412 cabinet features a one-piece Baltic Birch Baffle Board. The Baffle itself is thinner than the cabinet's shell, measuring 12mm thick. Testing at Kustom has shown that a somewhat thinner Baffle contributes desirable resonance to the overall sound, creating more lively, less rigid, tonal qualities.
Naturally, the Coupe 412 with the classic Slant front is built from two pieces of virtually void-free Baltic Birch, as is necessary with the Slant-type design. Again, thickness is 12mm for responsive performance.
Coupe 412 speaker cabinets all use 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, a favorite of professional guitarists around the world. These premium speakers deliver rich, full-bodied tone with great definition and sustain ” you'll quickly hear why they have earned a reputation for excellence. Overall power handling is rated at 240W.
Coupe 412 cabinets are wired for Mono or Stereo operation that is selectable using a switch on the back. When using a cabinet in the traditional mono mode, the four speakers are rated at 16 ohms. In Stereo mode, 2 speakers function for the left side and 2 speakers function for the right side with a total impedance of 8 ohms per side.
Visually, Coupe 412 cabinets are stunning. Total boutique quality, and rightly so, as they are handcrafted at the Kustom Shop in Cincinnati, Ohio. Beautiful, high-quality coverings, Vintage Black Weave Grille Cloth, removable, vintage-style casters, and heavy-duty handles complete the package. Truly a classic piece.
