In my tone quest over the last 15 years I've been experimenting with getting 4x12 body and tone out of smaller, lighter cabinets. However, it was only fairly recently that I finally found a way to get the natural bottom that comes from a 4x12, using only a single 12-inch driver. I call this cabinet design the "FV 1x12" (Front-Vented 1x12). This cabinet is extremely efficient and has a natural-sounding full bottom. It has that familiar tone and feel of a 4x12 cab. This cabinet design uses a series of unique internal chambers that capture and magnify the low-frequency energy from the rear of the speaker. The extended lows combine with the front of the speaker by exiting the cabinet through two front vents. The result is 4x12 body and feel in a lightweight, compact design using a single 12-inch driver.

Here are a few more photos of the FV. As you can see, there are options when it comes to Tolex colour and grille cloth::

Standard grille cloth is brown/black/gold with gold piping
