fEARful 12" enclosures
greenboy introduced fEARful several years ago as DIY construction plans, and they are still accessible on greenboys' website. Click the greenboy icon on the left to access them..
Of course we will be more than happy to build any fEARful cab to any stage of completion (sorry, no flat packs).. This ONLY applies to the original fEARful line

Tiny but mighty, the fEARful 12/6's are no slouches in the performance department. Many players looking to downsize their stage rigs have found out a single 12/6 is more than enough to carry a lot of rooms with little or no PA support.. If a little more SPL is needed in say very large rooms or outdoor gigs, most guys either add a mirror-image 12/6 or a 12sub.

There's no difference in performance/frequency response between the 12/6 and the 12/6 cube, the choice is just user preference.

These come standard with the Eminence Kappalite 3012LF woofer, and an Alpha 6 midrange. The Alphalite 6A is a lighter weight midrange alternative for a little extra.
The 18Sound 6NM410 is available as another higher cost option, but it is only recommended if you are going to pair the cab with a 12/15sub. The crossover will include a switch which will attenuate the 6NM410 to bring it in line with the output of the single woofer.

The extra cost HF option is an Eminence ASD1001 driver hooked up to a H70e waveguide. Includes its own crossover network and L-pad. Can also be switched in/out..

Keyboard players, the 12/6cube could be your answer.. The port shelf can be extended some to lower tuning to better handle synths. The cab is also readily adaptable for installing tiltbacks and pole mounts..

The fEARful 12sub is tuned identically to the 12/6's, and carries the same low-pass crossover components. This allows for a quick and easy SPL upgrade without having to twist every knob on the rig.. The 12sub could be used with an appropriate electronic crossover and mated to a couple of Crazy8's to make a pretty decent small club PA..

When asked which one of the "original" fEARful cabs might be "best", greenboy picked the 1212/6. More LF displacement and SPL than the 15/6, and the midrange response is very well matched.

Although the 1212/6 is a dual-woofer cab, it is still compact enough to slide in the back of most of these fuel-efficient cars (bass players don't drive smart cars...right ?!)
The fEARful 1212/6 comes standard with two Eminence Kappalite 3012LF's and an 18Sound 6NM410 mid driver. The HF option is the 18Sound XD125, controllable with either/or an on-off switch or variable L-pad. We put the large D-handles on this standard, and there is a tiltback/caster option available as well.

The fEARful 1212sub is basically the 1212/6 without the midrange. Same tuning/response, same low-pass crossover components
