Acoustic Image has turned their cabinet design upside down. The company – which features downward firing woofers in several of their products – has unveiled the UpShot, a compact speaker cabinet fitted with a single upward firing 10-inch woofer.
“The UpShot is designed to be placed on the floor, close to the player so that the player can clearly hear his or her instrument,” Acoustic Image explains. “The omnidirectional nature of the sound resulting from the driver being close to the floor, allows the instrument to be clearly heard on the bandstand and throughout the club.”
Its design was inspired by New York jazz bassist Harvie S., who wanted a cabinet that he could carry in a backpack to gigs. The cylindrical enclosure measures eleven inches in diameter, six inches in height, and weighs just 11.5 pounds. It can handle 300 watts at 8 ohms.
The Acoustic Image UpShot Speaker Cabinet is available now for $399.
