I ordered a pair of Hathor cabs awhile back and finally got them on friday. One had some issues from shipping so, it had to be sent back, but luckily the second one was just fine. Fit and finish is perfect as you would expect when getting anything from Duke and it was packed very well. The cab weighs 35lbs and is a joy to move with the side cup handles. I would have like a recessed top handle but the mid chamber prevents that. My first impression of the cab was that it had a nice low mid punch, very clear top and upper mids and a very rolled off low end that got thinner the farther away from the cab that I got. I expected this and figured this would change as the cab broke in. I fed the cab a 25hz sine wave at 10v for about 22 hours and then plugged back in. The low end was fuller and the slight 400hz honk was gone. The cab definitely improves with break in time and I really prefer using the 25hz method to playing at a gig because if you arent' playing at high levels, it will take a long time to get this cab sounding the way it should. My goal with this cab was to find something to replace my nv610 or at least use it when I don't need so much volume. With my shuttlemax 9.2 set flat there isn't much of a contest. The nv610 stomps all over the hathor in the low end and punch catagory but, is super dark in comparison. But, you have to remember that you have 6 drivers against one. Because of this the berg has a relatively large boost in the 100-500hz range where all the meat of a bass is. The hathors native voice is rather flat with a low end roll off. To get the two more similar, I boosted the bass to 3:00, boosted 120hz to 3:00, boosted 2.5khz all the way up, treble was cut back to 10:00. Both switches on the hathor cab were in the up position, which is the brightest setting. Normally with the berg Im boosting 800hz at 3:00, treble at 2:00, global high at 12:00. With both cabs sounding their best the hathor is much more clear and feels quicker under the fingers than the berg but just comes in alittle less strong in the low mid punch. Not much though. The berg hits you in the chest alittle harder at comparable volumes but feels alittle congested, much less off axis dispersion of upper mids and highs too. Both great sounds that are in the same family though. The little 4" mids in the 1544 really sound good. They get tweeter high but never sound clacky or harsh. The hathor sounds so good with overdrive and distortion. Better than the nv610 even and better than anything else I've ever used. There are two switches on the back of the 5144. the bottom one lets the woofer run fullrange or trim out some upper mids. The top switch does the same to the mids. I prefer the woofer run fullrange and the mid either way. I know that the nv610 is supposed to be a great match for the svt (mine is a real one from the 70's) but, I've never loved it. My brothers SVT CL probably sounds better with the berg than my 70's but, thats because the berg is strong where the cl is weak and the 70's tone is too much of the same frequencies and gets to thick in the bottom and too rough up top. The hathor loves my svt! I turned the treble to 3:00 and left it. Done. Sound great. I totally recommend this cab to anyone but, be aware that you may want to boost the lows and low mids alot unless you amp is voiced fatter than my shuttle. The ashdown ABM500 would probably just LOVE this cab. I plan to just keep this one cab so, maybe I should have got a 4ohm. Everytime I buy two small cabs, I always realise that I still prefer one trip with a cab than two. I took pictures but, they don't look any different than the ones already posted. I'll be using this cab at mondays practise and udating this review as well as a video review in a week or two.
