Anything lighter than my GS112 with a similar sound?

    I'm currently using an Aguilar GS112 with a Euphonic Audio iAmp350 for a regular restaurant gig. The sound is great and the volume/lows are fine for this gig but I'd really like something a little lighter than the GS112 since I often have to walk a few blocks. An easy one trip load-in would be great.

    Is there anything out there that can pump out the same volume and low end of the Aguilar but at a lower weight? Something around 25-30lb would be ideal. I'll also most likely move to an EA Micro in the near future.

    The ones I'm currently reading about:
    Wizzy 112
    Aguilar SL112
    Genz Benz NX2-112T

    I'm interested in these comparisons as well.

    Had the GS112 w a Streamliner and grew to hate it. Moved to Genz Neox 112Ts and happy all around w sound, weight and ease of carry (carry two at time no sweat and I old)....

    Personally prefer old school P-Bass sound in Blues-Rock world. May not work in your genre and can't help w how you'll like w EA. Have fun w it

    I really dig my Wizzy 112 but it's sort of the opposite tone of a GS112 - super midrange detail, not a lot of deep deep lows or high highs.

    I see you also play DB, the Wizzy is an excellent doubling cab, sounds fabulous with my iAmp800. A 4 ohm Wizzy is a great way to get a lot of sound from lower-powered heads--my favorite pairing with it is an old GK 400RB.

    I've got a DNA DNS-112N/Micro that I'm considering letting go. Weighs in around 28-30 lbs. Its slightly more compact than the DNS-112N. I've only had it less than a year and have used it less than 10 times, between rehearsals and really small gigs. Let me know if you're interested...

    I usually use an AI rig for the upright as I rarely double on the same gig. That definitely does make the Wizzy appeal to me though.
