Supro USA Releases Extension Cabinets to Accompany Black Magick, Supreme & Comet Amps

Supro is now shipping a trio of extension speaker cabinets featuring late 50's era Supro cosmetics, partially open-back construction and custom-made Black Magick speakers. Any one of these aggressively voiced extension cabs makes the perfect companion to our best-selling Supro Black Magick, Comet and Supreme amplifiers to create an even louder rig with extra punch and stage projection.

Robert Smith of The Cure has used Black Magick amps with 1x15 1791 extension cabinets throughout the band's 2016 World Tour to amplify his Schecter Bass VI, which he uses to play the iconic melody riffs from The Cure's Disintegration album.

The Supro 1790 and 1791 Black Magick Extension Cabinets are ideal companions to the award-winning 1695T Black Magick amplifier. Sized to fit perfectly underneath this Classic Series 1x12 combo, these partially open-back, vintage-style extension cabinets are loaded with either a Supro BD12 speaker to match the driver in the Black Magick, or with an all-new BD15 speaker for even more bottom-end and stage volume. These custom-made, high-power drivers, designed for the Black Magick amplifier, use a specialty British cone, top-of-the-line suspension and an oversized ceramic magnet. With the 15" or 12" extension cabinet connected along with the combo's 12" internal speaker, the Supro Black Magick amplifier runs down at 4 ohms, drawing maximum power from its Class A output section. The Supro 1790 and 1791 Black Magick extension cabinets add considerable versatility, punch and projection for larger stages. They also bolster pedal-based rigs, where maximum headroom is required.

The 1x12 1700 Supreme Extension Cab puts the Black Magick's BD12 speaker into the smallest possible form factor, transforming the 1600 Supreme or 1610RT Comet into an ultra-compact, all-tube stack capable of handling large-venue stages. Sized to fit perfectly underneath our Classic Series 1x10 amps, this partially open-back, vintage-style cabinet is loaded with a Supro BD12 speaker. This custom-made, high-power driver originally designed for the Black Magick amplifier contains a specialty British cone, top-of-the-line suspension and an oversized ceramic magnet, adding considerable punch and projection to the Supreme and Comet rigs.
