Here's what Barefaced Audio say about the Upsetter 110:
It’s a single 10” driver with a bigger warmer tone than a closed-back 1x12” but the room-filling clarity and air of an open-backed cab. It’s so light it weighs less than a guitar in a case and so small it’s almost airline hand luggage!
This was the first model we launched in the Barefaced Diffractor range of guitar cabs. Originally called the GX, we decided it had far too much character to just be an acronym, so now it’s the Upsetter 110.
We no longer just offer two versions, with American or British sounding Eminence drivers. Instead the standard speaker is now a British toned Celestion G10 Vintage and you can choose from silver or black cloth grills and British Raging Green or Black In Black tolex.
What is AVD?
You see it when you look at the back of the cab - it’s the Augmented Vent Diffractor. It’s a unique Patent Pending technology that we started developing back in 2013. At low frequencies it acts as a tuned vent or Helmholtz resonator, improving efficiency, power handling and output. At mid and high frequencies it acts to diffract, disperse and couple the sound with the room for improved audibility and output especially in rooms with poor acoustics.
What is the Lo Cut filter for?
The increased low frequency output from the AVD may be too much for some guitarists’ tastes - so you can flick this switch and remove lows at the cab. Doing so not only changes the bass response but also increases the power handling of the cab, lowers the distortion due to motor excursion and reduces the load on your amp’s output stage.
This can give you two different sweet-spots of optimum speaker overdrive or break-up and two different sweet-spots of power valve overdrive. If your sound is perfect in rehearsal but too dirty at a louder gig then engaging the Lo Cut filer will clean it up.
