Sick of lugging a 4x12" around but still want that sound? You're not the only one, and that's exactly why Matrix Amplification came up with the Neolight NL12 guitar cab. It's a 1x12 speaker cab that's lightweight (thanks to specialist construction and neodymium drivers) that sounds as big as a 4x12!

  • Compact: 400mm x 300mm x 455mm (wdh)
  • Lightweight: 7.7kg (16.9 lbs)

We've tried it out next to some of our best selling and some of our favourite 4x12" cabs and the NL12 takes the fight to them! Perfect for anyone that wants to reduce the amount of gear they need to lug to gigs or those who want a big sound even on a smaller stage!

Here's what Matrix say about the Neolight NL12

The Matrix Neolight NL12 is the first in a range of lightweight speakers designed to meet the needs of guitarists for a compact, lightweight traditional cabinet to use with either their modelling amplifiers or traditional amplifier heads.

The NL12 is our 1x12" solution, packing 60W RMS into a cab you can carry easily in one hand. When we designed the NL12, our goals were to bring the weight down and make it sound big and impressive. We think we have achieved that. It has the push and feel of a full  2x12 cabinet, thanks to the careful design and the bass port. The neodymium speaker keeps the weight down, while the use of carefully selected European tonewoods helps enhance the sound feeling big without adding to the weight. The result is a small, light cabinet that doesn't compromise on performance.

Finished in our signature hard-wearing black textured paint finish and fitted with metal corners, this cab is built to last. A classic grille cloth and gold piping finish off the front, and you can't miss the distinctive bass port which is a key part of design.

Everything on the NL12 has been chosen to balance tonal qualities with weight, and the result is quite exceptional.  Everyone who has played it has been stunned by the punch it delivers from such a small, light box. The tone is full and clear, with deep, full bodied lows and punchy mids. Whether played as single cabinet or as a stereo pair, this little box delivers far more than you would expect from it's size and weight.
