What would it take to carry the mighty physical wall-of-sound-experience that only a powerful 4x12" half stack can deliver in just one hand? It would mean bending the laws of physics — or, designing a 1x12 speaker enclosure that delivers four times the sound of its size, and combining it with the electronics of the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 in a combo that thousands of guitar players have been waiting for!
Everything You Love About Combos — Taken to the Extreme
What we all love about combos the most is the handling aspects of an all-in-one solution where everything is right in place, and perfectly matched components that guarantee a 100% reproduction of the sound the engineer originally designed. The only limitation is the speaker. Or, to put it better, the physical limitations of a small standard enclosure. So, H&K had to think out of the box.
The Black Spirit 200 combo is not merely a simple combo version of the Black Spirit 200 head. Designing this sonic masterpiece was a completely new approach! And the result is another amp like no amp before: The most advanced all-in-one solution, blessed with an exhilarating range of sounds and features, immense power, and a speaker that translates any sonic detail into the most intense physical playing experience. And weighing in at just 31.9 lb. (14.5 kg), Black Spirit 200 Combo improves what we all love about combos in every respect.
The secret is the all new Thiele/Small enclosure: a closed-back front-ported plywood construction that houses one UK-made Celestion G12-75H Creamback. Perfectly tuned Thiele/Small ports and well balanced dimensions dampen the speakers’ movement and at the same time allow it to breathe. Only in this way can the speaker unleash its full sonic potential and deliver more output than in any other housing.
To handle the power and translate each single watt into sound pressure, all the wooden boards in the sophisticated cabinet construction are made using the finest birch plywood, and are glued together to a particularly rugged and incredibly anti-resonant enclosure. The speaker and electronics are front-mounted, and the only removable board is the separate grille board. The grille board uses custom made highly permeable cloth, and leaves the front ports open for maximum punch.
The result is the punchiest yet most balanced frequency response H&K ever designed for a combo. Exceptional low-end punch, breathing mids and shimmering highs deliver an unprecedented sound experience that’s really four times as big as the size of the speaker.
