    I've decided to go to a two 1X12 cab configuration because I like the size of these neo super 12s and I've heard great things about their sound.

    Have any experience with the Markbass Club 121 or the New York 121?

    For $500-600 new, they pack a punch at 400 watts. I want two to pair nicely with my Genz Benz Shuttle 9.0 in terms of power and size.

    I have a NY121 and love the tone and portability. Have tried two of these together and really liked the sound, great for small clubs. Have not tried the club and heard it was discontinued, though you might find a good deal if it is.

    And they're so light!

    How did they hold your bottom end?

    Did a bit more research.

    Seems like the Traveler has the biggest sound and best low-end. The New York is great because it's small but doesn't move as much air. The Club is the smallest and provides the least low-end, but it's great for traveling. Ironically the traveler is the biggest...

    Think I made my decision.

    I have also owned a traveler and liked it very much, but found the low end a little on the boomy side. YMMV. I have a LMIII amp I use with it. I would get another Traveler 15 though and think that has a great sound.
