Ashdown CL-310DH Cabinet Released

Ashdown launch a 3×10” Dual Horn Bass specific speaker column.

Inspired by the best British PA systems of the 60s and 70s, the CL-310-DH uses 3 x 10” custom Ashdown drivers as well as a set of high frequency horns to deliver deep tone with superior clarity.

The guys at Ashdown received a special request from their good friend Guy Pratt to design some custom speaker cabinets to pair with his custom ABM heads. Guy has recently taken on a new role as the bass playing front man for Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, which features an incredible line-up of musicians including: Lee Harris of the Blockheads, Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp and music producer Dom Beken.

So, challenge accepted; Ashdown set-about developing what would be the CL-310-DH cabinet… The cabs were so striking in looks and sounded so superb that they simply had to put them into production for the wider audience. It would have been rude not to!

The CL-310-DH cabinet is rated at 450w at 8 Ohms and is rear ported with a 6” tuned port. The cab features a tilt back design with casters on the rear and a conveniently placed handle on the top, so you can just tilt back and wheel away. The cab also has another side recessed leather handle to carry on its side.

The CL-310-DH features a red custom weave grille with old English style white piping, finished in a heavy Bronco Tolex and lastly; adorned with the famous Ashdown double winged logo. “Plugging in a pair of these cabs with the Ashdown CTM-30-LS valve amp head is like taking a trip back in time with the warmth and clarity associated with amps of the past,” said Mark Gooday, Managing Director at Ashdown Engineering.

The CL-310-DH Specifications are as follows:

  • H: 999mm 39.3”
  • W: 325mm 12.7”
  • D: 350mm 13.7” Weight: 26.4KG (58lbs)
  • Power: 450w Impedance: 8Ohms
