All Reeves cabinets are constructed of finger jointed 3/4" marine birch plywood. Our cabinets feature Slot Load Venting for improved bass response, and are available in either 1x12, 2x12, or 4x12 configurations.
Metal inserts are standard on the back panels of every Reeves speaker and combo cabinet. This method ensures a tight and secure panel free of "stripping out" common with just using wood screws.
The Reeves R1x12W and R2x12W extension cabinets utilizes the Port City Wave technology of deflecting internal sound waves of the speaker. How this is accomplished is by using two angled deflecting panels, at the top and bottom of the cabinet, directing speaker back pressure towards the angled slot opening at the bottom of the cabinet. With this type of speaker cabinet configuration you get a much more articulate and "bigger" tone...notes have more detail with better low frequency response.

Speaker options for 1x12, 2x12 and 4x12 cabinets...price is the same for any speaker.
After listening to many current speaker options on the market we felt compelled to offer our own versions of famous well models. It would certainly be easier on us if just took what ever 'Brand Name' was out there and put them in our cabinets, but we found our speakers to be superior in every facet. Tone in our speakers is much more natural, detailed midrange without any "ice picky" textures...very vintage in nature.
- Vintage Purple...modeled after the Fane speakers used by Hi watt in the '70's
- Vintage G12...modeled after the Celestion G12H30
The Vintage Purple speakers were developed to fill a void in the market place when the Fane speakers that were originally loaded into Hiwatt cabinets in the '70s went out of production.
The Vintage Purple 12" speaker is built on a Cast Aluminum frame with a 56-oz. magnet and a 2" voice coil.
We took an original Fane speaker from a vintage Hiwatt cabinet, refined several prototypes until we replicated that magical tone.
