The Jackson Ampworks Dual Ported cabinet is the best selling product we’ve ever made; and for good reason! The tone of our Dual Ported cabinet is often compared to a vintage 4×12 speaker cabinet because of its punch and the huge sound it imparts to your tone! 

Over the years, our Dual Ported cabinet has gained the reputation of being the best sounding, single speaker cabinet on the market and we are now making this legendary design available to you in a DIY format at less than half the price of our standard production version!

If you’ve been wanting to upgrade your tone with one of our Dual Ported cabinets but can’t quite afford it then this is a great deal for you! For $295 plus about two hours of your time, you can build your own Dual Ported speaker cabinet and finish it however you like! We showed a couple of ways of finishing the cabinet in the picture gallery; one unfinished and one with the body stained a weathered grey and front facade stained in whitewash.

This cabinet is also perfect for players who have to keep their cabinets behind the stage to keep the stage volume down and who don’t really need it to match the rest of their rig! For $295 you’ll get a cabinet that sounds every bit as good as our production tolex’ed version but you’ll get the bragging rights to say you built it yourself! 

If you would like us to build this cabinet for you instead of you doing it, we do offer a pre-assembled kit that is available here.

 

“Though the cabinet is relatively small, the focus and width of the sound exceeded that of any 1×12 cab I have used in the past. The bass response was huge and if I closed by eyes I’d never have guessed it was a single 12” cabinet.”

Dual Ported Cabinet Technology.

As guitarists, we work very hard to achieve great tone and certainly one of the most important aspects of that tone is the speaker cabinet that we use. After all, the speaker cabinet is the final link between your amplifier and your ears, therefore its effect on your tone cannot be understated. This aspect is vital even for profiling amplifiers.

It is with this in mind that we are proud to introduce our new line of patented DIY Jackson Ampworks Dual Ported cabinets which are the best sounding, most revolutionary speaker cabinets ever made for the electric guitar!

The Jackson Ampworks Dual Ported cabinets are a totally unique approach to sound reproduction and the results are staggering!

All Your Tone. All The Time.

The Jackson Ampworks Dual Ported Cabinets is a completely new Patent Pending design that features two ports that run vertically along the left and right side of the cabinet and allows the sound waves that come from the back of the speaker to be directed via precise baffles and shelves out the front of the cabinet. Months of research and development went into creating precise dimensions for the ports that ensure that the sound waves coming from the ports are in phase with the sound waves coming from the front of the speaker. These sound waves when aligned with each other work to augment and fatten the tone of the speaker! With our Jackson Ampworks Dual Ported Cabinets, the user gets the “airiness” of an open back cabinet with the presence and low-end of the best closed back cabinet you’ve ever heard!

In addition to the Dual Ported design, we have also engineered an internal diffuser that breaks up and disperses the piercing high end that is often found in closed back designs. This critically tuned diffuser also helps to direct the sound waves out the side ports of the cabinet and create more dispersion of sound with none of the ‘beaming’ found in most closed back cabinets!

Construction Details.

Our Dual Ported cabinets are constructed with 13-ply Baltic Birch and feature Dovetail joints for unparalleled strength, rigidity, and tone. Also included is an all steel handle that is recessed into the cabinet for easier carry. See our list of construction details below! Everything you need is provided (some tools will be required).

Cabinet finish

For best results use your favorite wood finish. We use Baltic Birch because of it natural acoustical properties and using a stain allows for the wood to vibrate freely without being hindered by a tightly wrapped fabric or tolex.
