    First MAS110 going out. I'm REALLY happy with this cab. Probably my fav. (I've put in about 6 gigs on it) I have two more completed that aren't spoken for yet. Final dimensions 30 1/2 x 13 1/2 by 14 1/2. 37# After these two are sold about two weeks lead time.

    $1050 (includes pricey Celestion HF horn driver---you can't see it--it's firing from the back into the upper wave guide)

    Hey Mike!

    I am still loving the MAS 112 with the Eminence driver. However, having owned a Flex in the past your new MAS110 has caught my attention. I have a few questions:

    Does the woofer in the MAS110 have a different character than that in the Flex?

    I prefer the tone of the custom Eminence 12 over that of the 18sound 12, and that of the flex. I was curious as to if the custom 10 was voiced similar to that of the custom 12.


    Do you plan on doing a similar design for the MAS112?

    I am 100% happy with the lows and low mids of my cab, but sometimes miss the upper mids and highs of the 210Flex. My dream cab combo would be either a Eminence 112 based cab like your new 110, or a pair of your 110s if the lows and low mids are similar to that of the 112.

    Caught this in the other thread. It answered some of my questions.

    "I like the 109. It's an awesome speaker I think. But the MAS112 and 46 were a bit more to my liking.

    That has changed. The new MAS110 is the best one we've done. I'll post a pic but I cut away part of the top panel following the profile of the mid baffle. Holy cow! Steve was saying that what that does is create a "rooster tail---- that the mids shoot up and almost backward a bit. My friend Randy was over and said that the mids changed less than any of my cabs if you were behind the cab.

    Since there is a dedicated midrange section I was able to cross over the mids a lot lower. This gives me much more control over the entire midrange spectrum. I compared it today to the 112 with the 18Sound woofer. This was my king of mids.The 110 had much more balanced mids---but much more midrange clarity---without a trace of aggressiveness.The 112 sounded a bit grainier where it's prominent--in the area of 800 to 2k.The 110 was as "up front" but much more natural sounding.

    For lows I like either the 46/110 sub combo or the new MAS112. With every note there is a bass drum type thump. Punchy yet still warm. The 110 does the same thing. The bass section is the same as the 110 sub.The 110 sub is a bit punchier than the 109. The 109 goes a bit lower and is a bit bigger in the lows but I find that I can approximate the power and extension of the 109 with a small bass boost.I'm using the new custom 10.

    For all of my other cabs (except the Flex) the woofer provides the low to mid midrange and the mid drivers handle the upper midrange.On the 110 the drivers and their enclosures are optimized for the range that they do best.

    BTW---it also breaks up quite nicely when pushed hard."

    I like the evolution of this line. If a next generation MAS112 is developed with a separate midrange waveguide will it use the custom Eminence 12 driver? What about dimensions, weight, and power handling? Thanks.
