The 1200W Mesa Boogie PowerHouse 1200 1x15/4x10 Bass Speaker Cabinet's bracing employs a concept borrowed from the aircraft industry. All structural reinforcement is sculpted-out to form an extremely strong skeleton with reduced weight.
The Mesa PowerHouse Bass cab's tri-ported design is an innovative front facing, multi-vent porting system that uses individually tuned triangular ports to enhance each part of the bass spectrum. This goes way beyond the old standard design that has all your tone blowing out of a single large port hole.
The Player Control Network is a proprietary "back-panel" interface that provides unprecedented stylistic versatility and gig friendly convenience. The Player Control Network includes a 3-position switch for crossover frequency, an adjustable L-Pad for blending the right amount of high frequency driver, re-settable horn protection plus standard 1/4" and high-current Speak-On locking connectors.
The Style Control crossover and attenuator is an artistic crossover "Range" switch that provides three distinct tonal variations: time-proven, detail-enhancing, sweet 5K (Normal) setting; plus the harmonic-friendly, accent-expanding snap of 4K (Sheen) and the groove-enforcing, articulate cut of 3K (Bright). This combined with the premium L-Pad horn attenuator provides players with unrivaled stylistic versatility and performance.
The Instant Reset Horn Protection is a simple "one touch" reset switch, providing the ultimate in convenient horn protection. No fuses, tools or digging inside the cabinet; Just push and play.
Convenient inputs and paralleled outputs are provided for both standard 1/4" and Speakon high current, locking connectors.
Thanks to the heavy-duty construction of the PowerHouse, where the cab's exterior is a hard-shell road case, these cabs represent premiere sound and construction that will last, no matter what the road throws at you.

Shortly before i got this Powerhouse cabinet, i was using a brand new Ampeg SVT 810 that Guitar Center loaned me till my Mesa came in. I have to say i was actually quite impressed with the Ampeg and was starting to lean towards it more than the Powerhouse. Was I wrong? All i can say is when i first plugged my Markbass sd800 head into the Powerhouse i rang out one note with my volume at 3, and every snare drum in the building went berserk. This cabinet is a revelation, the guys at Mesa Boogie really did their homework on this one. As far as tone, i had all i needed and more, and the volume was RIDICULOUS. I play in a metal band where both of our guitarists use twin full stacks, and they were asking me to turn down when my volume was only at two o'clock! Good for funk, metal, punk, dub, reggae, whatever you play the Powerhouse will succomb to all your needs and wants in a speaker cabinet.
