Powered Bass Cabinet

1000 Watt 2x10 Powered Bass Cabinet / 2000 Watts in 4x10’s

Wayne Jones AUDIO, bass guitar powered bass cabinets, direct from manufacturer, 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Speakers for bass guitars.The WJ 2×10

Now you can have a 1000 Watt Compact, Portable  High End, High Powered, Crystal Clear, Full Range 2×10 Bass Cabinet (40 Hz – 20 KHz & does the job of a 4×10) that only requires a pre-amp, your bass & yourself. Or spoil yourself with 2 cabinets & have 2000 watts in 4×10’s.
  • Now lighter & more portable. The cabinet is made from lightweight poplar ply which is internally braced & is finished with a lush slightly thicker black carpet than most manufactures use.
  • I still use the same 10” driver design that was in my previous model (if it aint broke don’t fix it) with air dried Kevlar Impregnated cones, a 70mm voice coil, massive ferrite magnets (in preference to Neo).
  • All bass cabinets in the new range now have JBL tweeters.
  • The cabinet has a separate rear section for the pull out handle & to allow air flow to cool the heat sink. A state of the art switch mode D Class power amp with amazing dynamics, 20Hz to 20KHz frequency range (see specs) is built into the rear panel of the cabinet with a grill to protect it. I could have used what most other companies are using but this power amp far surpasses them with specs & amp quality.

It’s a 500 Watt per side stereo amp (2 individual mono amps) that is bridged giving 1000Watts RMS into 8 Ohms. Perfect for my cabinets as they need the power to move those drivers to give you all those frequencies. As opposed to other cab companies where their speakers do not deliver all the frequencies as present & as balanced as mine.

  • The rear handle is a rugged road case pull-out handle by Penn Elcom. The castors are also rugged & take far more weight than is needed.
  • It also has 2 recessed bar handles for alternative carrying
  • Standard plastic interlocking corners
  • 1.6mm perforated powder coated front & rear grills
  • Foam padded covers with a special cut out to protect the control panel come with all cabs at no extra cost.

How to use

  • Make all mains & pre amp connections. (output from pre-amp to Input of WJ powered cab) with volume down on bass & pre amp. Turn on the mains, then your pre, then the power-amp. Then turn up your volumes to set your sound. Reverse process to shut down

Attenuators

  • Set the mid around 3 o’clock & the high approx.  12 O’clock.

Wayne Jones AUDIO, bass guitar powered bass cabinets, direct from manufacturer, 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Speakers for bass guitars.The WJ 1×10’s

Are Extremely light weight (no more back trouble) great for small rooms. 500 Watt a side, 4 ohm cabinets that are used as a pair in stereo or parallel mono.

These will blow you away. I would only be using these if I was doing smaller gigs.

They are so light but sound so full & clear, 40 Hz- 20 KHz
You can also use the powered one by itself as a 500 Watt cabinet. It will only use one side of the power amp which operates totally separate from the other.
Besides all that you can pop them up on stands & use them for monitors in your home studio.

WJBP Stereo Valve Bass Pre-Amp

High End Pro Bass Player Designed

Wayne Jones AUDIO, bass guitar powered bass cabinets, direct from manufacturer, 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Speakers for bass guitars.WJBP Bass Guitar Pre-Amp

My perfect sound was an Avalon 737 studio pre through my WJ powered cabs. So I set out to design a bass pre-amp that truly reproduced your bass sound & thus enabled you to tailor your sound. Also the tone controls had to work in the right areas & the pre had to have all the bells & whistles we need to do our job. Again no expense spared, just the highest quality components I could get for everything we need on stage & in the studio. These were my Instructions to my Engineer.

I have achieved that with the WJBP

This pre will also make front of house engineers happy as what goes in comes out.

The WJBP is designed with a no compromise attitude in Cost, Quality, Components & Features just as are WJ High End High Powered Bass Cabinets.

Features

  • Input 1/4” Phono Jack
  • Input Gain For both Passive & Active basses
  • -10 Db pad with overload light that Light up Orange when overloading starts
  • Tone controls are critically set by Wayne & are extremely accurate in the attack points of each string.
    You can set them by one for each string on your bass All +15Db -20 Db
  • Incredible separation between the tone controls
  • There is also a 30 Hz boost for those that may like it ( not really needed at all as the Bass control gives
    such a great bottom end with ultimate attack)
  • In/out button for selection
  • Compressor: Optical, automatically senses & is very effective even with a very small amount
    engaged.
  • In/out button for selection
  • Balance This is a balance control for stereo operation EG 2 WJ 2×10 or Stereo WJ 1×10 Powered
    cabs.
  • Master volume Controls out put
  • Clip LEDS tell you if you are overdoing the WJBP output
  • Mute – Puts the WJBP in standby mode. LED Indicates when in use. The Mute mode should also be
    used for power up of the WJ Powered cabs, otherwise a very loud 1000watts will sound when WJ
    Powered cab (or separate power amp) is turned on.
  • It also operates the built in Tuner. For standard tuning for 4, 5 & 6 string basses
  • Foot switch mutes all output for silent tuning.
Master Outs 2 balanced XLR (recommended) outs for connection to WJ powered cabinets or to separate power amps Balance control on from panel will affect these outputs.

Also a choice of 2 Unbalanced 1/4’ outputs for same function. (not recommended as output is lower)

All master outs can be used together as a pair or Individually with balance control set to the respective output

FX Send & Return – Stereo or mono with a blend balance control for wet or dry. “Set in Centre for best blend”

Foot switch – Mutes all output

DI Output – Balanced XLR out with Level control & ore or post EQ button

Aux Input – Stereo input, both 6.3mm & 1/4” Phono. You an use this to plug items such as iPad, iPhone backing tracks etc. to play along with.

About Wayne Jones AUDIO

I am sure you’re going to enjoy my new range of High End, High Powered cabinets

Wayne Jones  

Based in Melbourne Australia.

I am primarily a solo bass player, writer, producer and own my own record label.

Prior to this for over 40 years I was a sideman in the Australian music scene, touring, sessions, clinician and product advisor for major companies.

When I started playing I could not afford extra bass cabinets so my father and I built one.

Ever since then I have been Interested in designing my own bass cabinets through gaining knowledge and the need to better what was on the market.

In 2001 Bass Player Magazine gave me that rave review that stated that my bass cabinets had unbeatable detail and balance and bassists should rejoice in the promise of a new cabinet renaissance thanks to myself and Michail Barabasz.

Also when describing them said think high resolution studio monitors. They were that close to being studio monitors I decided to make some.

Well since then I have recorded and produced a few CD’S of my own, done some touring and thought it was about time I designed a new range of cabinets making some improvements on my last model.

What we want and how to get it.

As bass players we are always on the search for our perfect sound.  No matter what style of music or what bass you use you want to be able to reproduce that bass’s sound, tailor your EQ and FX. 

It works like this.

  • First the Signal, (your bass) then reproduction.
  • In the studio you plug straight in through a high quality DI such as an Avalon U5 and that is your actual sound to be processed. You may also mic a cab for it’s sound.
  • The speakers should reproduce the signal that you process through your amp and FX.
  • On stage have you ever wondered why FOH Engineers usually prefer pre instead of a post send from your DI? The reason they like that is the sound you get on stage from most amps is not actually what you’re sending them. Between the coloration of amps and FX and the inaccurate reproduction through most bass cabinets he wouldn’t get a workable sound.
  • Now with my cabinets you can send him the true representation of your sound as you have virtual studio quality on stage.  He will need a little demo of that to feel confident. But if they know their stuff it won’t be a problem and they will love it.

This is what I wanted in my rig and that’s why the first models worked.

Design and sound

We like 10’s as they have tight bottom end with great attack.

The problem is to get the frequency range we require out of them.

I went to Michail Barabasz of Lorantz Audio in Melbourne and asked him to make me 10’s that could cater for the low B to the high C on a six string bass with a clean clear even frequency response all the way.

Now that a pretty tough ask for a 10”speaker. I also gave him my digital pre amp graph shape that I used at the time.

He reply was, “You want WHAT out of a 10?!!!!!!!

He did it.  A 3 inch voice coil, Kevlar Impregnated cone with +- 5 mm travel that will actually excurt to 13mm. Whether it pops back in or not is a different thing.  My previous cabinets also delivered to around 28Hz. I still use the same drivers in my new models.

A Boeing engineer in the USA asked me if he could test them to the near point of destruction and was amazed and how good they were.
You can use 10’s for subs or have them with more mids or highs but to get an even frequency response in the driver itself (not the cabinet) from 40Hz to 4Kz has been virtually impossible for every other speaker manufacturer.

We have achieved that and that is why I am proud to say they are the best in the world.

If you design the speaker itself to reproduce accurately what goes into it then you are not compensating with box tuning.

Ever noticed how sometimes you can pull as sound and there are still certain frequencies you cannot get rid of or there is some mud around them. That’s because the speaker is more prominent in certain areas and or your amp EQ selection points are not in the right place when designed.

Comparison

Most cab companies get one speaker manufacturer to make their speakers. And they generally operate on a budget for a large turn over.  I operate on building the best quality I can with no exception or expense spared.

This is why my cabs cost a little more. You do get what you pay for.

You simply can’t by a Ferrari for the same price as GM or Toyota.

I am sure you’re going to enjoy my new range of High End, High Powered cabinets as much as I do.

You can order direct from this website and from select Bass Amp retailers.

HeaveN Beatbox

Our new endorsee is a testament to the versatility and high fidelity of the Wayne Jones AUDIO range. Welcome on board Steven Cantor, commonly known as HeaveN Beatbox.

HeaveN Beatbox is a Crossover Beatboxer from the USA - performing the role of "Boxman" on Broadway, in the musical "In Transit" HeaveN Beatbox is a Crossover Beatboxer from the USA, who has been delighting audiences with his astounding beatboxing abilities, and his magnetic and exuberant personality. As a bi-product of his environment, HeaveN expresses himself by absorbing the actions and sounds that immediately surround him. He hears, feels, captures and personifies these sounds through the art of beatboxing and storytelling.

Steven Cantor grew up in Alpharetta, GA and began beatboxing, vocally replicating, creating and mimicking sounds at the age of 14. While most consider beatboxing an art form of hip-hop, HeaveN was initially inspired by vocally imitating alternative rock groups, Third Eye Blind and Matchbox20. As his passion for “beatbox” grew, he found platforms to showcase his talent by competing in open mic competitions and performing locally around Atlanta, GA. It didn’t take long before HeaveN caught the eye of legendary dance crew, HaviKoro, when in 2011 they invited him to join them on a 7 city tour of India, as part of the American Voices Program, which was sponsored by both the Indian Consulate and the US Embassy. In 2012, HeaveN graduated with a BA degree in Film and a Minor Degree in Performance Theater Acting. In that same year he became the American Vice- Beatbox Champion and has since gone on to represent the United States on two occasions at the World Beatbox championships, (an extremely rare feat) He has also placed 3rd at the Boss Loop Pedal World Championship in Hollywood, California.

Wayne Jones Audio 500 Watt 1x10 Powered Bass Cabinet with preampStreet performing became a way for HeaveN to instantly attract an audience. He would capture the attention of people passing by, and within minutes, dozens of people would gather around him, applauding, cheering and even dancing. From children to adults, he astounded all onlookers with his amazing talent. Word quickly spread, and before too long opportunity came knocking on doors and street corners. HeaveN was offered a 6-month USA tour with world-renowned UniverSoul Circus. It was an amazing opportunity that led him to perform to tens of thousands of people and to be seen in the national media. HeaveN has opened for entertainers such as Carl Payne and Tommy Ford from “Martin”, comedians “Shucky Ducky” and Tony Tone from BET’s “Comic View”, as well as Grammy award winning hip hop group “Arrested Development”. He has been featured on USA Morning News (Washington, DC), Good Morning America (New York City, NY), Revolt TV (Austin, TX), NPR, and the BBC. Some recent highlights include a performance at the TEDx Peachtree conference in Atlanta, Georgia, an eight city tour of the United Kingdom, performances in Japan, performing for the San Antonio Spurs organization, A3C hip hop festival, an evening with the Atlanta Pops Orchestra and Speaking and performing at Harvard University.  HeaveN is also working with the prestigious talent agency “Innovative Artists”. He recently completed filming a guest feature spot on the PBS program Music Voyager and he is currently performing the role of “Boxman” on Broadway, in the musical “In Transit”.

The ideal rig match up for HeaveN Beatbox is the Wayne Jones Audio 500 Watt 1×10 Powered Bass Cabinet with preamp.

Wayne Jones Audio has the best and audibly cleanest bass amp
I’ve ever had the privilege of using.

User of the single powered WJ 1×10

Wayne,

I’ve spent some time with the WJ 1x10. It’s everything you said it would be. Good, even response throughout the range of whichever instrument I play through it.

I have old Yamaha BB-5000’s (actually 3 of them). I was an early purchaser after trying out a prototype that Nathan East let me play on, back in 1984. One is strung with a Low-B. The WJ 1x10 reproduces this bass just like my headphones (Sony MDR-7506), or my studio monitors (Dynaudio BM6a). Nice and even, no bumps in any particular range (i.e., no boomy low-midrange, no honky high-midrange). read more ➤

Bass Musician Magazine’s Review, by Jake Wolf

View on Bass Musician Website ►

If you’ve been following the boutique bass world since the 90’s like I have, the name Wayne Jones Audio might ring a bell.

David Dyson performing at NAMM 2017
Endorser David Dyson performing at NAMM 2017
I first heard about Wayne’s cabs a couple decades back, and although I never had the chance to hear one in person, I was very intrigued by their interesting specs and their relative rarity in the market at that time. Wayne was selling cabs here in the US until shortly after 9/11, at which time, Wayne says, “everything changed”. Cab sales in the US dropped sharply, and Wayne went back to his busy career gigging as a top call bassist. So when I saw Wayne’s gear resurface in the last couple years, I was again intrigued. His current offerings include powered 1×10 and 2×10 cabs, as well as his own stereo tube preamplifier (At NAMM 2017, Wayne introduced a good old passive 210 as well as a 2 channel version of his pre. More below). I reached out to Wayne and he couldn’t have been more gracious or generous with his time and gear. He promptly sent me an array of cabs and his preamp to check out, and I’ve been having a blast with all of it.

Before we get to how the gear works, let’s look at the equipment itself.

At 24” tall, 16” wide, and 22” deep, the 210 dimensions are fairly unique for bass cabs. I asked Wayne about the extra depth of the cabs (both the 210 and 110), and he responded that the depth allows him to not only achieve a desired cubic volume, but also the distance between the driver and the back wall is very intentional, in order to achieve certain performance goals. As a result, the 210 is a somewhat odd form factor. Luckily, it has a built in telescoping handle and tilt back wheels, making the schlep pretty easy. All the gear is covered in a very high quality black carpet, which seems better than a lot of the cab covering I see (Wayne responds: future cabs will use High end automotive leather look Vinyl covering). The preamp had a very nice build quality: all the knobs and switches felt solid and had nice resistance to the pots, thus reducing the risk of bumping controls mid-gig, and boding well for the gears overall lifespan. From a fit and finish perspective, the Wayne Jones gear is simply top notch. Read more ►

“THE BEST POWERED CABS I’VE HEARD”
BASS PLAYER MAGAZINE’S REVIEW BY JONATHAN HERRERA

Wayne Jones Audio
WJ 2×10 & WJ 1×10 Powered & Passive Cabinets
Jonathan Herrera
for July 2015 issue of Bass Player Magazine http://www.bassplayer.com

I WAS 23 WHEN I STARTED AT BASS Player in 2002, so no matter how precocious I thought I was, to say I learned on the job is an under- statement. Fortunately, I had the bass journo All Star team on hand to whip me quickly into shape. I leaned hard on each of my more experienced col- leagues, but early on there was no one I needed more than Terry Buddingh, whose knowledge and abundant patience I frequently put to the test as a nascent technical editor. Terry is genuinely passionate about audio gear and has the wizened aspect of a guy who’s played, taken apart, and repaired thousands of basses and amps. When Terry really liked something, I took it seriously; nobody sliced through marketing hype better. I can recall long discussions about innumerable pieces of gear that came through the office, but few stick out as much as his deep and abiding love for an esoteric 2×10 made by a bass player in Australia, Wayne Jones. BP glowingly reviewed the Wayne Jones 2×10 in 2001, just before I arrived, so for me the cab was the stuff of legend. Plus, its extreme scarcity meant I couldn’t pop down to the local Guitar Center and give one a spin. Regardless, the cabs went out of production in the mid 2000s.

“THEY ARE SIMPLY SOME OF THE BEST SOUNDING CABS ON THE PLANET”
BASS GEAR MAGAZINE’S REVIEW BY TOM BOWLUS IS NOW OUT

Wayne Jones WJ 2×10 And WJ 1×10 Bass Cabs
Tom Bowlus
from http://epublish.panaprint.com/publication/?i=251644&p=44

 

Bass Gear Magazine review of Wayne Jones AUDIO products. Powered bass speaker cabinets for bass players, bassists, bass guitar players & double bass players. Bass player amplification, bass guitar amps and speakers.The Company Line

So many times, the things which fascinate us – sometimes to the point of obsession – are the things which are the least obtainable. This definitely holds true for bass gear, and for some time, one of the best examples of “unobtainium” in the bass world were those mysterious 2×10 cabs from some guy named Wayne Jones. Nobody was really sure just who he was, or if he even existed, but rumor had it that he was some foreign land, like Atlantis, or Australia, or something. Combined with what we didn’t know about Wayne Jones was that what we did know was that everyone who had actually heard them seemed to fall madly in love with them. So, of course, I had to have a pair of these cabs for myself!

I was lucky enough to snag two Wayne Jones 2×10’s on the used market, and sure enough, they lived up to the hype. Yes, they wanted a good bit of power to sound their best, but if you paired them up with an adequate amplification, they provided deep, powerful tone for days. So, mission accomplished; having secured these cabs, the mystery was over, right? But rumors are funny. Just when you think the story is done and over, new wrinkles break the surface. Terry Buddingh first piqued my interest by claiming that he actually knew Wayne Jones. “Really? He’s a real dude, and not just some made up brand name?” Then, Terry goes on to tell me that he’s trying to convince Wayne to start making cabs again. “That’d be great!” Oh, and this time around, he’s going to make them powered cabs ” Uh oh … I’m getting sucked back into the mystery!”

Review of the single powered WJ 1×10 bass guitar cabinet

Wayne,

I’ve spent some time with the WJ 1×10. It’s everything you said it would be. Good, even response throughout the range of whichever instrument I play through it.

I have old Yamaha BB-5000’s (actually 3 of them). I was an early purchaser after trying out a prototype that Nathan East let me play on, back in 1984. One is strung with a Low-B. The WJ 1×10 reproduces this bass just like my headphones (Sony MDR-7506), or my studio monitors (Dynaudio BM6a). Nice and even, no bumps in any particular range (i.e., no boomy low-midrange, no honky high-midrange).

I’ve also played my acoustic double bass, with a Realist Copper Pickup, through the WJ 1×10. Same evenness, and it seems to let the growl come through very musically. The bass sound coming out of the speaker is the same sound of the bass, or as much as a piezo can deliver — only louder.

My Moog Taurus 3 Bass Pedals are HUGE sounding – which they are supposed to be. The hi-fi nature of your cabinet works great for the synth bass – ALL the frequencies come through evenly, once again in a very musical way.

I’m using an Acoustic Image Clarus amp. But only the preamp out to the WJ 1×10. I pretty much run the EQ flat — I like the sound of my instruments, and don’t need to color them much.

A few times, I’ve simply plugged a bass into a Preamp-DI (Fishman Pro-EQ Platinum Bass), and then into the WJ 1×10. Works fine.

I also experimented a bit with mic’ing the WJ 1×10 (some quick recording of only the speaker, not the tweeter) with a Shure Beta 52A – better than DI’ing! Now, if I can convince the sound-guys to do this over a DI, or at least together, it would be awesome!

A little off the track. Are you aware of the Phil Jones Ear-Box? I picked one up, and plugged it into the Speakon Out of the WJ 1×10, selected Input-Link. It supposedly puts no load (or very little) on the amp. I position it behind me, up on a mic stand. It’s VERY useful when I play upright. Nice monitor for intonation. 😉

Anyway, back to your speaker… I’m very satisfied with this powered cabinet. It’s just what I was looking for – portable, powerful, great-sounding, and musical. I’m very glad I found you!

I have ordered two road cases for the WJ1x10. So… I’d like to purchase the passive 1×10, if I may. 😉 I will need to fill that empty 2nd road case.

Thanks for a great product!
Lloyd

Well he did indeed buy the passive 1×10 to make up the 1000 Watt 1×10 / 500 Watts per side pair.

“Wayne,
Got the passive speaker a couple days ago. Twice as much awesomeness!

Just have to tell you… I was playing through my studio monitors, about 2 months ago, asking myself, “Why can’t there be some bass speakers that sound smooth, even, high-end, and with some useable stage volume?” Oh, and portable! 😉

I went hunting and found your speakers. So glad that I did!
Thanks!”
