    There are people way more knowledgeable that will chime in on this, but in layman's terms:
    fEARful are Greenboy bass cab designs that anyone can use to DIY build their own cabs.
    fEARless are a specific set of "production" type Greenboy designs that are built by Greenboy-authorized builders.
    nEARful is a non-Greenboy term that some people use for cabinets that loosely follow the full range speaker configuration (ie, speaker, woofer, crossover) of Greenboy designs but that don't adhere to the Greenboy specifications.

    ^ That pretty much sums it up IMO. I will add tonally the fEARless have tighter lows and smoother high mids than fEARfuls, but you can easily eq the fEARful cabs to achieve the same tone.
