The SRV-112 is a rotary speaker cabinet designed specifically for guitar and powered by your guitar amplifier. It features a 12" Eminence screaming Eagle 75-watt speaker firing into a single rotor. Adjustable fast/slow speeds and transition time are featured. The autostop system positions the rotor forward so the SRV-112 can be used as a normal 1X12 speaker cabinet.
About Volume levels
Because the sound from a rotary speaker is being spun all around a room, it will not sound as loud to you as a stationary speaker firing directly at you. Volume will be affected by reflections from walls and ceilings. In an outdoor venue much of the audio speaker's sound is directed away from you and will not be reflected back, this is the worst case scenario. A small stage or room will have the most reflections and will be the loudest and best scenario. In larger venues if you can place your rotary amplifier by reflective surfaces, that will increase the volume where you are standing and provide a richer rotary sound.

Comments about Motion Sound SRV-112 1x12 Rotating Guitar Extension Cabinet:
I've waited for an affordable Leslie for years. I was ecstatic that Motion Sound made this product specifically for guitar. Their keyboard products have always garnered high praise. While I'm ecstatic with this purchase. I also knew that there would be a lot of guys that would buy this and not be satisfied as this effect is not as dramatic as say the H&K Rotosphere stompbox. But, this is a truer effect to my ear. This product is best used as the only cab with a low wattage head. I use it as an extension off my Maverick 1X12. I also take a signal from my effects loop and run it thru my Gmajor to my Boogie 50/50 stereo power amp and out thru two Rectifier 1X12's. Yeah, I know, could,ve just bought a 4X12. But, this is more versatile and nothing over 40lbs, except the Mav. Bottom line is that the effect gets washed out somewhat with the added speakers. Yet, there is an added and very subtle depth to the overall sound that I love. And it is room filling. In a live, miked or a studio environment, this cab will slay. It has two integral mikes. My plan is to mike every speaker and run the 5 mikes to a Behringer 8X2 line mixer, panning the Leslie left and right (9 & 3)as well as the Rectifier cabs (10 & 2) while the Mav will occupy front and center. The stereo out will go to either a live console or my Boss 1600 recorder. This cab will shine in this arena. But, live and unmiked I think you'll have a lot of unsatisfied guitarists unless they reflect sound from the sides out, or as I said , use it with a head as the only speaker. I would replace the speaker, in that event, with an Alnico Gold like I have in my Mav, or it's cheaper cousin, a Vintage 30 - a great speaker in it's own right.The bottom line for me is I love it, but I think it's not for all. It adds so much depth, particularly to the chorus program in my Gmajor being amplified by my 50/50 and served up my my 2 Rectifier cabs. I suggest you try it at a store first, if you can, unless you're not opposed to return shipping if you're dissatisfied.
