    With all the love that the NV series and 15 + mid cabs get, what do you guys think? I know I would buy it, most likely 2. Thoughts?

    I would buy it if :-
    I could afford it
    it sounded great

    One of these is pretty much a given:(

    Doesn't the NV series kind of go against everything a Fearful is?

    Vintage vs. modern?

    +1 NV is new vintage, and built to sound like an old style cab. Complete opposite of the fEARful line.

    Well the NV215 is anything but "modern" sounding, even with it's 6" mid driver (with attenuator)
    A 158NV cab could be sweeter than sugar:p

    The real question .... who's doing the Beta testing of the NV158NV cab?

    I'd say we'll know in a weeks if these will be produced. I've heard 8 ohms, 400w, 53 lbs.

    Looks like a stackable NV 215 ( 2-8 ohm loads, wired in parallel=4 ohm load ) ... hopefully you can turn off one of the mid range drivers ... but that may be a good thing

    Sorry I thought I remembered you saying something about it in the other berg thread.

    Everyone may as well sit tight for at least a month. I don't foresee any information coming out until then. I think Jim should have went with a 2x12 but, I know that this cab will rock. No doubt about it.

    Wha, these are (soon to be) real? I thought this was a "you know what'd be cool" thread. In that case, I'm subbed!

    I'd be awesome to compare this NV, JGR's and a Baer ML115.

    BSD had a prototype of the CN212 a few months ago. I had heard rumors of the 15/8 then, but now the word's on the street that it's in the works. I haven't seen one.

    jim doesn't ever release that kind of information that I know of, besides Custom, or custom emminence, etc. I'm sure he has some sort of custom drivers in it nevertheless...
