EarCandy’s Tone Jointing©
We have spent a very long time and a lot of money to engineer a different jointing process never seen before in the instrument speaker enclosure industry. Finger and Daido jointing allow for cabinet flex or what is known as box talk. Box talk happens when sound pressure levels inside the cabinet apply enough pressure to push or put stress on the cab jointing. This allows the cabinet to flex in unison with the speaker polarity, thus creating muddy undefined and slow attacking bass and a over all sloppy tone. Open back cabs create a bigger problem in the fact that they allow sound to un-evenly escape the cab from the back in a resisted pattern, opposite of where you need it.
Even at low volume levels, this flex and resistance can increase the amount of work your speaker has to do to project sound. Ear Candy cabs are built in a way that uses the compression and spl from the speakers in a positive way that actually forces the cab jointing together and not apart, so the louder you want to play, the tighter and more defined the cab will sound, offering no resistance or flex allowing for the most pure UN interrupted tone from a cab you have ever heard. Our cabs are heavily braced on all 4 sides attached at 32 points no further than 5 inches from each other all the way around the cab (imagine a drum rim with drum lugs) The attachment points are then tightened until all of them reach the exact same tensile strength, meaning you can strike the cab on any side or any corner and it will ring true, in the same tone all other sides ring in, very much like tuning a drum. With our design of the floating baffle tone woods, porting and speakers, we can attain any tone you have been looking for and exceed your expectations.
What this means is, there is no loose or unattended to portions of the cab that will resonate more or less than another part (thus no dead spots in the cab, thus no box talk). The EarCandy Floating Baffle ToneWood Tone Jointing® Process Creates 100% pure, true and completely even delivery of any tone. Combine our jointing tecnology with our select woods and your options of tone are unlimited. EarCandy’s Tone Jointing® process also makes the cab basically one piece and nearly indestructible. This is all done from inside the cab allowing the sound to travel away from the hardware and not into the hardware, allowing free and clear travel of sound. After taking years to develop such a voice for your instrument, we didn’t stop at that! We use the best materials we can find insuring you this will be the last cab you will ever need.

EarCandy’s Black Space Porting©:
Ear Candy’s Patented Porting design allows our cabs to breath like a living breathing part of your rig. The speakers are able to attain exactly what they need to perform at their optimum level with little or no abuse to the motor structure of the speaker. The porting allows the speaker to move freely but controlled. EarCandy ported cabs are unlike an open back cab where the open back speaker cab offers zero pressure or vacuum, allowing the speaker to move freely, uninhibited and uncontrolled. In Comparison, you have completely closed back, non ported cabs that offer air pressure and a vacuum for the speakers to fight to move in and out / back and forth with the polarity of the signal, this limits the travel of the speaker in what is referred to as the “X-max”. Our Porting design combined with our jointing process allows the speaker to breath and give / receive the exact amount of air it needs to operate at its optimum level with little effort on the part of the speaker. There are several combined process’s that make EarCandy cabs more like an instrument and not a speaker box.
The technical definition of a port is “A Circular inlet or outlet in various dimensions from 1″ I.D. to 10′ I.D” A cab with a square section removed from the side or bottom is technically NOT a port but a “Relief”. Sound is Round© so it only makes sense that porting for audio should also be round. EarCandy’s porting design provides an uncanny amount of efficiency, sounding large at even bedroom / practice volume levels. EarCandy cabs will make you a better player because of the clarity, dynamic touch sensitivity, and concise projection our design delivers.
EarCandy’s Tone woods:
All of our woods are AAA with no voids. We have our lumber custom milled to our specifications. Our ToneWood floating Baffles are engineered by us and milled with a glue used by wooden Instrument makers. We do not use industrial laminated ply wood. You would not want your guitar made out of MDF, why would you want your cabs made out of MDF.
