Acoustic Image Announces the Doubleshot Speaker Cabinet

Acoustic Image DoubleShot CabinetAfter unveiling the Upshot two years ago, Acoustic Image has expanded their speaker cabinet line with the Doubleshot. The cab is described as “the world’s lightest 2×10” and features two opposing side-firing woofers with a single five-inch midrange driver. Housed in a compact enclosure, the unit weighs just 15 pounds.

“Doubleshot’s design takes full advantage of physics to maximize volume and breadth of frequency range, “ Acoustic Image Founder and Designer Rick Jones explains. “What’s more, the 180-degree sidefiring configuration, plus the added frontfiring wave of the midrange driver, result in true omnidirectional sound. The soundstage is huge, giving it a ‘coming from everywhere’ sound.”

Acoustic Image DoubleShot Cabinet ComboAcoustic Image is also offering the Doubleshot in a combo form with three options of their 600-watt Clarus amplifier: the SL with one channel and no effects, the SL-R with one channel plus effects, and the SL-2 with two channels and no effects.

The Doubleshot cabinet will be available with a street price of $599, while the combo deal with a Clarus head ranges from $1,299 to $1,499. It will be shipping in September with all pre-order sales being reduced by $100.

    Does anyone have any real life experience with this cabinet? Will it handle a low B string? Is it loud enough to use in ensembles with drums?
    I don’t care about opinions not based on experience. 5 string basses and D class power amps were once considered to be ‘overpriced boutique junk’,,,, wrong.

      I have their Ten2 cab, which is similar, and it absolutely roars with my upright and handles the low B on my 7 String Conklins with no problem. In fact I normally have to dial out low end. I’ve stopped using any other cab.
