Mesa Boogie 112 Thiele Front Ported Compact Guitar Amplifier Cabinet

Mesa Boogie

The Boogie® Compact series of cabinets dates back to the early 1970s when the company fulfilled player requests for extension cabinets matching their Mark I™ 1x12 combos. The compact size was determined by the combo’s dimensions and as the Mark Series evolved and expanded, so did the extensions. The Thiele and WideBody™ 1x12 Cabinets maintain the classic Boogie styling and celebrated tones while the newer WideBody Closed-Back represents a culmination of over 45 years of cabinet design and signature Boogie tone. All three designs continue to be some of our best selling, player favorites. They pay homage to our original roots as not only the original boutique amp builder, but also the first to exceed player expectations by packing high quality performance into small, portable packages. These are “wolves in sheep’s clothes”!

The Boogie® Compact 1x12 Thiele Cabinet is a front mounted, front ported, closed-back extension cab that is one of the punchiest yet most frequency-balanced cabs we make. The tuned front porting provides exceptional balance across the lows, mids and highs while simultaneously providing additional punch-character via the air/tone escaping the front port. The authority of it’s tuned bass resonance sits perfectly with mids that breathe and presence frequencies that shimmer versus non-ported designs that often provide a darker response overall. By themselves, and particularly as a pair, Thiele 1x12 Cabs can be a compact and portable secret weapon for all styles of music and playing situations, but especially effective anywhere you want to maximize punch, width and authority without sacrificing the rest of the frequency range details.

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 and 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.
