From 3rd Power:
The design goal for the DC212 was to enhance the performance and versatility of our legendary Dream 212 cab. I’ve been on a kick lately of trying to optimize/align the timing of when your guitar frequencies hit and then exit the speaker and that lead me to a particular design decision to move the back baffle forward by roughly 1.25″. This means the DC-212 is a cabinet with a depth of 12-5/8″ compared to the Dream 212 which had a depth of 14″. This makes the response more immediate. When play testing and recording, I find the mid and high frequencies line up better with the lows to produced a supremely focused tone that is crystal clear, articulate and responsive. Every pick attack of your playing is spot-on accurate. The low frequencies remain full and focused but don’t take over the performance.
Vertical and Horizontal orientation is standard with the new DC-212. Dimensionally, the DC-212 fits perfectly to the head enclosure shape of the Extra Spanky 6VEL, Spanky MKII+ as well as the forthcoming new versions of the Clean and Dirty Sink heads. This time around, we went with a classic look meaning that your rig will accompany you on stage with superior tone without taking up too much room or dominating the smooth sight-lines on today’s modern stage designs.
Crafted from 5/8″ birch, the DC-212 features embedded triangular speaker chambers to eliminate standing waves and internal reflections. With construction features including isolated speaker chambers (one open, one closed) and a tuned triangle port, the DC-212 delivers your full frequency response with a clarity and punch that sounds more like a mastered record and won’t get lost in the mix.
*Prices start at $1399 loaded with 2x WGS Retro 30 speakers.
Mono or Stereo Operating Modes
The DC-212 provides a ton of flexibility by way of MONO or STEREO operating modes. When you plug into the left speaker jack, both speakers are linked in mono (total 8 ohm load). When you plug into the right speaker jack you break the link and can now operate each speaker individually for stereo operation (each speaker is 16 ohms).
