    I am searching for a small 6x10 cabinet. Do they exist? I know the size of the Ampeg and SWR cab's, but I am looking of a lighter weight, smaller cab that is a 6x10.

    +1 Bergantino NV610 is awesome. Pretty compact.

    Other light weight 610 cabs would be:
    MarkBass - Discontinued I believe / 70 lbs.
    Ashdown - / 80 lbs?

    If you can find one, the Markbass CL106 (70 pounds and 34.5 inches tall) or the Schroeder 6x10 (78 pounds and 32 inches tall).

    +1 for the Markbass CL 106. Although I admit I never played through one, I always thought the Markbass CL 106 sounded like a brilliant concept. And only 70 lbs. I wish they still made 'em. Of course, if weight isn't an issue then there's the Berg 610. It would be great to see a NEO version of that 610 Berg.

    That's easy. Bergantino. Plus it's the best.

    And they don't make them anymore. Let's not forget that detail.

    I did not find the CL 106, but I did find a 106HF for the Markbass. 99 pounds. And the dimensions are too big for what I am wanting. Which by the way, I am starting to think that what I want does not exist.

    Let's take into account the basic physics of fitting six 10" drivers onto a baffle. At the impossible minimum, you're looking at 20x30 inches. Add at least wood on each side and the fact that you need at least some measurable space between the drivers on each side and I've gotta think 23 x 36 is about as small as can be possibly expected. Depth is another thing entirely. The only way to get smaller would be to build some kind of band-pass enclosure with half the drivers inside a smaller dimension, but then you're just building a subwoofer and not a full-range bass amp cabinet.

    I have a Schroeder 610 and it's light and fairly easy to move.

    I have to replace my 8Ohm single 12 and the 8Ohm 1212 that sits under it. So my total height that I am going for is about 32" (can be higher) but only 28" wide (1212). So, if I could find 3x(1212) cabinets in 1 cabinet, that would probably work.
    I know it really makes sense in my noodle. Also, what I am looking for is an 8Ohm cabinet as well. I am having to replace my amp and will only be able to do 4 Ohms. So, I need to find out some sort of speaker system and amp that will replace what I have, but don't want to replace. (My amp is beyond repair).
