Over the years Jim Bergantino’s speaker designs have been used by several well known manufacturers. Played side by side with some of these cabs, many players have preferred the BERGANTINOS ! According to Jim “You’ll hear the difference in 3 notes”

Bergantino Audio Systems has been dedicated to developing and building the highest quality audio products and bass guitar amplification systems for 14 years. They have received numerous accolades within the musical instrument industry and continue to look forward with their designs and their unique approach to developing products.

Their product range has something to suit all tastes, needs, and playing styles:

REF SERIES SPEAKERS

The Bergantino Reference Series is the new benchmark for high-quality bass guitar amplification. The Reference series are available in two driver configurations; 1-12” w/ Tweeter & 2-10” w/ Tweeter. The Reference series employ precision tuned cabinets, built with the finest 100% Baltic birch plywood and are covered in a rugged tolex finish for pleasing aesthetics and long-term durability. They also employ a rigid black metal grille to protect the drivers and eliminate the tone robbing acoustic absorption associated with cloth grill designs.

The internal components utilize high quality, custom designed woofers along with a superlative sounding, compression driver mated to a constant directivity horn. The constant directivity horn ensures consistent coverage throughout the audio spectrum, and a custom designed, phase coherent crossover seamlessly mates these components throughout the critical crossover region. Reference series woofers utilize ceramic magnets w/ vented pole pieces and the low-end is full and round. Along with their high power handling capability, the Reference series are a very versatile speaker cabinet; excelling at both finger style and pick playing, and due to their tight-creamy low end are an excellent choice for slap-style as well. Bergantino’s Reference series cabinets produce an accurate, full-bodied and authentic representation of your bass guitar in both live and studio settings.

HDN SERIES SPEAKERS

The Bergantino Audio Systems HDN (High Definition Neo) series lightweight speaker cabinets retain the great Bergantino Audio sound and give you the weight savings but not at the expense of tone and performance. The HDN series takes the best characteristics of the previous CN Neo series and the current HD Series and combines them into the one package which possibly makes the HDN series Jim Bergantino’s best designed speakers yet!

The precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the highest quality lightweight Italian poplar plywood (with Baltic birch baffle boards) selected to Bergantino’s demanding specifications. This lightweight cabinet material (along with the lightweight magnet material) helps reduce the overall cabinet weight. The exterior of these speaker cabinets are finished in a durable bronco tolex covering for long life and cabinet protection. A rigid black grille is added to protect the drivers from damage and to minimize the coloration and tone reduction found with a cloth speaker grille.

The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No ‘off-the-shelf’ parts are used. Their new design Neodymium magnet woofers (unique to the HDNs) are used for the low frequency section of the HDN series cabinets. These Neodymium drivers have a punchy low-end and a very sweet midrange that is placed a little more forward in the sound field when compared to the HD series. Fretless and upright players will often prefer the HDN cabinets because of how the midrange ‘speaks’ with their instruments. The HDN series cabinets have a new design high intelligibility tweeter mated to the woofers through a custom designed phase-coherent crossover with a tweeter control. Because of the increased cost of the Neodymium magnet material and imported wood for the cabinetry, the HDN series speakers cost more than the HD series, but may just be the right match for your playing style and weight needs.

NV SERIES SPEAKERS

NV Series speakers use 100% Baltic birch precision tuned plywood sealed cabinets and the finest ceramic magnet drivers with vented pole pieces. This combination provides a tight low-end and immediate bass response. These are a favourite of finger style and pick players because of the tight, creamy low-end found with these cabinets.

B|AMP BASS AMP

The Bergantino Audio Systems’ B|Amp is an incredibly flexible, state-of-the-art Bass Amplifier, delivering maximum performance in a compact package. The B|Amp takes a completely new approach to bass amplification by considering and including the speaker cabinet’s response as part of the amplification signal path.
