Trickfish Amplification Big Mouth 410 Speaker Cabinet: 4x10 1,600 Watts & 8 ohms
The Trickfish Big Mouth 410 is ideal for any situation calling for mid to high volume levels. The even frequency response allows for any type of EQ curve to be produced to fit any musical genre. The Trickfish BM410 will produce grindy mids for rock, punchy back pick-up finger styles for jazz, mid cut for a modern slap or old school creamy ultra-low bass for salsa, blues, and reggae. The BM410 from Trickfish is as versatile as they come. Stack two of these and hold on to your hats and glasses! These cabs are concert worthy and loud!

Trickfish Speaker Cabinets:
Nothing affects your sound more than your speaker cabinet. It is the heart of your amplification system. The Trickfish Acoustical Team has been designing and using all types of speakers cabinets for over 30 years and Trickfish's primary goal was to develop a series of cabs that reveal the character of the amp, your instrument, and the subtlety and nuance of your touch and feel.
It is relatively easy to develop a speaker cabinet that sounds good at "music store volumes" but the truth becomes apparent in the heat of the battle. Trickfish Amplifications approach is similar to designing a studio monitor or reference speaker with an accurate spectral balance and even octave-to-octave response. Trickfish employed a System Engineer approach that takes into account the cabinet, driver, and crossover specification but also integrates the amplifier performance into the equation. By looking at the system holistically, Trickfish strives to achieve the best equilibrium between raw power and sophisticated, organic audio integrity. Trickfish wanted vintage instruments to sound vintage, your high end tone-wood laden bass to reveal its inherent beauty, or your acoustic instrument to sound acoustic!
Trickfish cabs are all U.S. made and utilize void-free Baltic Birch ply, Dado and Rabbet joints, heavy bracing for structural strength and feature HF transducers and proprietary drivers manufactured by wold leader Eminence. The cabinets are wrapped in road-worthy 22oz sharkskin vinyl, have removable grilles, steel handles, and finished with metal corners ensuring both beauty and durability. Crossover networks employ an advanced circuit design and an on-board protection device that preserves component integrity even under the most demanding conditions. The on-board protection uses custom-built aerospace lamps with tungsten filaments that effectively track the program material, dynamically maintaining a safe maximum current level to the high frequency driver without introducing distortion.
Things that affect cabinet performance:
Through intelligent design Trickfish made every attempt to mitigate enclosure response through the structural design of the cabinets (heavy bracing), quality damping materials and superior woods.
A cabinet literally flexes as pressure builds in the box. A well designed, well braced and solidly manufactured cabinet mitigates the flex, reducing the negative impact of standing waves.
Internal Standing Waves:
An acoustic signal between two reflective surfaces with a distance that is an even multiple of one-half of the wavelength of the signal's frequency. Standing waves occur when two waves of the same frequency are traversing a medium in opposite directions. The result is that some points in the medium become "noes" and do not move at all, while the medium between these nodes moves excessively. As wave forms come off of the face of the driver they also emanate off the back of the driver into the enclosure. If the cabinet is not designed to limit the reflections a standing wave can be created. The resonance can diminish the speaker's ability to re-produce the input signal in accurate manner.
As the internal pressure is released through the ports, a standing wave can actually be generated in the port. Too small of a port and the cabinet can "choke" at high volumes. Trickfish Amplification utilizes a slotted port as opposed to a tube port to minimize the possibility of standing waves. With a round port a condition known as "Pipe Resonance" can occur creating a tone that has nothing to do with the program material present in the input signal. Slotted ports also reduce distortion or "chuffing" caused by unwanted turbulence that can impact the integrity of the waveforms emanating off the baffle.
Trickfish Amplification has taken a systems engineering approach to the design of the cabinets and have paid extra attention to the "tuning" of the cabinets. The mechanical characteristics of the driver, port lengths, crossover tuning, internal cabinet volumes, and total cabinet construction all have a symbiotic relationship that effect the cabs performance. Managing these diverse elements and incorporating them into the overall design ensures an even octave to octave response resulting in a truly musical sounding box.
