Holy crap, it's been since July that I posted on this.  Considering you're supposed to blog at least once a week, that's pathetic. 

Update on MVW cabs.  The GC25 series is done.  If we tweak them anymore the guys in the black suits are gong to come take them away.  The RachÉ PA subwoofers are done.  All is ready to go out for demos.  Shipping GC25's all over the country today. 

The final lineup ended up being:




GC25B.  The queen of the killer bee 25's.  At least 103db efficient cab.  It's so loud when it's running with the other models you can't hear them.  Sounds virtually identical to the other cabs, just louder. It will bury a standard 12" cab with a compression horn.   $999.  90hz 24db high pass recorded music,  100-110hz 24db high pass live music.  They can be run full range if you keep the power below about 150w. Recommended amplifier min 300w continuous, 600w peaks. 

GC25E.  The original GC25.  98-99db efficient.  Uses different drivers than the 25B.  Just an insane amount of sound and quality for the price.  $589.  Will easily keep up with a standard 12" cab with a compression horn.  A pair of these along with a pair RachÉ subs  is all most dj's would ever need.  Especially for weddings and corporate events. Anyplace a 12" cab will cover it these will do the job for live sound.   Small, powerful.    90hz 24db high pass recorded music,  100-110hz 24db high pass live music.  They can be run full range if you keep the power below about 150w. Recommended amplifier min 200w continuous, 400w peaks. 

GC25V.  The small gig coffeehouse model of the GC25's.  Same main drivers as the E, different tweeter that is front firing.  Sweet and smooth sound, smoother in the top end than the higher output models.  The front fired tweeter limits the throw somewhat, so it's not suggested for bigger gigs.  Spectacular cab for the acoustic player, solo performer, or even smaller gig dj work.  $449.  90hz 24db high pass recorded music,  100-110hz 24db high pass live music.  They can be run full range if you keep the power below about 150w, which I suggest for acoustic acts.  No sub to carry around.  Recommended amplifier min 200w continuous, 400w peaks. 

All models are 19.5 x 14 x 7.  Weights range from 26 lbs to 24 lbs.  Top hats, dual nl4 jacks.  4 or 16 ohms.  All the wiring is easily accessible to the end user to change the impedance, all cabs come wired for 4 ohms.  These are also available with fly points for permanent installations. With the small foot print, high output, and crazy vortex stuff you can have a very minimal visual system that will cover a large area with studio quality sound.  

GC25HA.  A home audio version.  The only descriptor for this cab is breathtaking.  Optimized for flat response rather than output.  You'll only need a subwoofer from about 40hz on down, basically LFE.  If you run it any higher it will just muddy up the sound.  For most music you don't need a sub, period.  From 2 5" drivers.  It sounds like nothing I've heard, anywhere.  Soundstage that is just staggering, imaging pinpoint and precise.  I guarantee you've never heard drums like this speaker can reproduce.  Available in duratex like the PA cabs, painted colors clear coat, and stained and varnished for an addtional charge.  $500 duratex, $550 painted, $600 furniture grade model.  8 ohms, 150w power handling.  Recommended minimum 75 watts.  3 of these would make one of the finest LCR setups for a HT system on the planet. 

All models are available for evaluation. there may be a wait as I shuffle cabs from reviewer to reviewer, or as I build more.  Full 30day money back guarantee for any reason.  I'll pay the freight back to me.
