New York bass specialist Aguilar Amplification has announced twin product launches – a new SL 212 cabinet and a limited edition ‘Dorian Gray’ bass range
The SL 212 joins its little brother, the SL 112 as part of Aguilar’s SL line of cabinets. Aguilar says the SL 212 offers: ‘…an unprecedented balance of performance and weight. At only 45 lbs. (20.41 kg), this 4 ohm cabinet handles 500 watts RMS. With a frequency response of 37 Hz–16 kHz, the SL 212 provides the deep lows, articulate midrange and smooth treble for which Aguilar is known for’.
The SL 212 also features two custom-voiced woofers with Neodymium magnets and a phenolic tweeter with variable level control. The cabinet includes one Neutrik Speakon and two 1/4” inputs as well as a specially designed crossover. ‘We spent a lot of time working on the crossover design to arrive at the smoothest possible frequency transitions. The ultra-light ply and subsequent cabinet tuning were also critical factors in achieving the signature tone of the SL 212,’ says Dave Boonshoft, President of Aguilar.
The second Aguilar launch is a limited edition cabinet colour – “Dorian Gray”. Only 250 units of these special SL 112 cabinets and 100 each of the SL 410x and new SL 212 cabinets will be built using this colour and finish. Each Dorian Gray cabinet will feature a custom “Limited Edition 2018” label on the crossover and come with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
The 25 lb. (11.34 kg) SL 112 cabinet features a neodymium driver with a custom-designed crossover. The SL 112 also uses a phenolic tweeter with variable level control and a frequency response ranging from 37 Hz – 16 kHz.
At only 49 lbs. (22.23 kg), the SL 410x is almost half the weight of a traditional 410 bass cabinet, Aguilar says. This cabinet is available in 4 or 8 ohm configurations and can handle 800 Watts RMS. It also features four custom-voiced woofers with Neodymium magnets, a phenolic tweeter with variable level control and a frequency response of 44 Hz – 16 kHz.
