Vox Foundation Bass Licensed Enclosures by North Coast MusicThe 1963 JMI Vox amplifier catalog introduced the Foundation Bass enclosure by stating that "The trend is towards the full round string bass sound." Designed for one 18" speaker, the Vox Foundation Bass cabinet was popularized by such groups as the Rolling Stones and the Dave Clark 5. The 1x18" Foundation Bass enclosure is now manufactured exclusively by North Coast Music and authorized and licensed by Vox Amplification, Milton Keynes UK.
At just 26" tall, 22" wide and 15.5" deep, the Vox Foundation Bass enclosure was no larger than necessary to enclose an 18" speaker. Like the original JMI Vox model, the sealed, closed backed North Coast Music reissue Foundation Bass enclosure is constructed of 3/4" 13 ply baltic birch covered in black basket weave vinyl. The cabinet is available in your choice of brown or black Vox grill cloth.
