Manufacturer's Description

2x12 Recto® Compact Cabinet

Originally designed to provide a matching, sealed, closed-back 2x12 extension option for the MESA® Roadster® head and combo, the 2x12 Recto® Compact has now established itself as the compact, tighter and more balanced-sounding 2x12 in the Rectifier® Cabinet Line. While it’s smaller size delivers more balance across lows, mids & highs, bass resonance and authoritative punch are still signatures of the Recto 2x12 Compact. Beyond its increased focus and tightness in lows, the 2x12 Compact is welcome to those seeking a smaller footprint and easier transport while making no sacrifices in legendary Rectifier tone.

You simply won’t find a better cabinet. ALL MESA® ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed. Speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response.
