Love the thought and design that go into barefaced cabs, but just can't live with 9mm plywood, i have not heard of many
failures though!.....just me i suppose!

Ive had lots of barefaced cabs with no damage. The fact that they're light means you don't have to put as much force into moving them. If I was touring they'd go into a flight case.

I was really tempted by the BF10s but the ohms seem very strange to me , the 210 being 4ohm and the 410 8 ohm seems the wrong way round?
I tried the vanderkley 410 and it was amazing , incredibly loud for it's weight and very open even sound

It's simple, displacement is the cone area (Sd) multiplied by the linear excursion limit (Xmax). It's just like a car engine bore and stroke, the sum total of which for all the cylinders is the engine displacement, for instance 2000cc. Just like with a car engine the higher the driver displacement the higher the potential output. BF posts the displacement for most of their products, and it's pretty much as good as it gets. Vanderkley, and every other manufacturer that I'm aware of, doesn't post it, though if you know what drivers they use you can figure it out, as the driver manufacturers post it.

Thanks for clarifying Bill, particularly with the car engine analogy which really helped!

Having had Barefaced cabs - a good few at that - they are far from fragile, more than happy to sit in a boot/van/load-space and rattle around. I always have Roqsolid covers for my cabs of course, but BFs are much harder than they look - maybe the Clark Kent of bass cabs?

Seems that there's a consensus that the BF cabs are not fragile, which is obviously vital. But my band members (who I'm guessing range in weight from 44kg right up to 77kg :)) are quite happy on occasion to perch on my Markbass combo, and I've not batted an eyelid when they've done so. Would you all be as equally relaxed about your heavier band members sitting on the top of your BF cabs? I guess that for me is a reasonable test of strength for the 9mm plywood used in the BF cabs?

It depends on how well it's braced. I specify 12mm in most of my designs, not for strength but for ease of construction, as most DIY builders would find jointing with less than 12mm difficult. However, if you've got the woodworking skills and the design is right you don't even need 9mm. My personal cab is a Jack 12 Lite, built from 3mm and 6mm.

I definately wouldn't be afraid to stand on my Barefaced cabs. The nature of the internal bracing makes them very strong. I've been a Barefaced user since 2008/9 and have been gigging Barefaced cabs exclusively since then. I've never sustained any significant damage. Small chips can be painted over although I've never done even that.

I have found myself saying the same thing about my Vanderkley 112MNT, and yet it occurs to me that it is a funny thing to assert because how can anyone know this? (short of plugging the signal at various points (Including a very good and well positioned microphone) into an oscilloscope or some other bit of electronic wizardry). Also, if it's desirable to have no colouration in in the speaker why is it allowed to have colouration in the amplifier?

At the end of the day it's the sum total of the instrument, amplifier and speaker that you hear, so you need to assess the whole lot with your ears and decide by what you like rather than anything else.

Well I think the above (plus Bill's comments on being happy with <9mm in his cabs) should put any residual concerns about BF cab fragility to bed for all us BCers? It certainly makes me think this is not something I need to be worrying about.

If you're thinking of going down an amp/cab solution rather than a combo and letting your mates stand on it i reckon the build quality of the cab is the least of your worries....unless you bolt the amp on the top of it of course ;)

Haha, yup I'd be pretty annoyed if any of them stood on my cab (or my combo) and I'm sure they wouldn't. And you're right having an amp-head on top should partly deter them from doing that too (although most amp heads will still leave some perch space!), but 3 hours into a rehearsal you can't entirely eliminate folks desire to take the weight off their legs and bass gear is somehow a lot more tempting than tiny guitar combos. Anyway Frank and Roland Rock's comments suggest to me that even if they did it wouldn't be anything too be worried about, which also says to me that the whole BF cab fragility point, cos Alex uses 9mm ply, is a non point and we can take that concern off the table. And if it's ever raised again, well folk can just point to Roland's 95kg sitting very comfortably on his BF cab... :)

Just don't perch on the rear edge and tilt forwards, lest the wheels wheels scoot the cab backwards from under you, and you fall in an embarrassing heap.

That's all very well, but how would piegon spikes realistically work with a Roqsolid cover? Or are you suggesting that we attach and take these down at the start of every rehearsal (which seems to me a touch impractical)?

So that folk are not unduly mis-led and don't spend too much time looking for erudite comparisons of the VK and BF premier brands on this thread, I should maybe re-label it "Do you find your cabs comfortable to sit on / how to stop band mates sitting on your bare face?" :D

Another nod to TKS for me. They meet all your critera, with maybe the exception of 800w handling.

But then if you genuinely need a cab that can handle the full 800w, maybe you should be spending your money on very expensive earplugs instead :-)

Vanderklay everyday for me! I have had 2x10 and 1x12 then a 4x10 and now just a 1x 12 and into the PA. For my style they are the best I have ever used!

I downsized the 4x10 to a 12 because I now have to carry the PA!! The 4x10 was out of this world.

I'm now thinking about the new 2 x10 as that will fit in the car but I don't know what else it will give me??

So only in my opinion Vanderklay is the best for tight funky bass

Also Mark is a very nice bloke!

And yes I live in Brighton!
