They say good things come in small packages; well then the Barefaced One10 Generation 3 Bass Cab is a great thing that comes in a small package. I don’t have schematics on the build of these, but I can tell you that these are the lightest and most powerful cabinets that cover the full range of the sound spectrum from a low B to the highest note of a 6 or 7 string bass that I have ever come across in many years of gigging. One10 is great for practicing at home, and then pair it with another for the live gig, that is, if you need to. It handles up to 250 Watts at 8 Ohms and if you are running it clean, can handle up to 500 Watts. I know, I used a pair of these on a rock gig with a 1000-watt head with no issues.
The Barefaced One10 made me rethink my setup from the speaker side of it. I have not played though anything that comes close to what these cabs can do, especially for the size, and not to mention the weight. The drivers for these, and all other Barefaced cabs, are designed by Barefaced and custom made by Eminence with a lightweight cone. The enclosure is their own design of a hybrid resonator, which gives you the fat lows, and the concentric midrange dome gives the best treble response I have heard in a long time. Compare the One10 with another 2-10 cab or 1-15 cab and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Matthew Heath Harper – I have been using the Barefaced Big Baby II and the Big Twin II for a year on well over 100 gigs. From tiny smoky bars to large outdoor festivals, and even recording in the studio, they are the most transparent and accurate cabs that I have found. Despite a hard life on the road they are holding up perfectly, and are so light that even singers will carry them. These cabs tell the truth every time, with tons of output, even on the B-string.
