The idea was to build a closed 2x12" box that sounds like the old Marshall 4x12" with the following enhancements: more manageable and smaller size, keeps the original tone even at a extremely low sound levels, a 160° directional characteristic...
The explicit purpose of building this cabinet was to build a 4x12" box that is substantially smaller and lighter at the same time keeping the original sound both at 100 watts full power as well as at extremely low volume settings.
Given the fact that nowadays only very few guitarists play full stacks, it was extremely important to generate a 160° directional characteristic allowing the right highs without sounding aggressive, even on the smallest stages.
The Gladius 4x12" cabinet has become the unrivaled benchmark on the world market.
It is the smallest, lightest and best sounding 4x12" ever produced. The Marshall 4x12" from 1967 was the reference box for this design. This box sounds extremely transparent and open without sounding sharp or thin. On the contrary, it produces sensationally defined lows, a superb presence in the mids and unbelievably silky highs.
Even well-known names in the scene were totally surprised and could not believe this unique tone.
A 4x12" box with a superb sound that can be carried alone without a second person!
It took years and years of research to create the above mentioned functionality and sound; features from the hi-fi industry were used. Taking a closer look at the rear side of the box you will recognize the Thiele Bass-Reflex system. This is absolutely mandatory for creating the right bass response, especially at low sound levels. In order to generate early resonance, the box panels are very tightly finger-joined and stiffened.
This one hundred percent handcrafted box fulfills virtually ALL requirements from blues to hard rock. Already now the LC412A is recognized as a milestone in the development of new 4 x 12" cabinets and is considered the benchmark for all closed-back cabinets.
