    No particular tone needed. Just something reliable and musical.

    Lightweight a plus.

    Peavey showed off a lightweight 112 at NAMM. Might be worth taking a look at when they get released (if you're not in a hurry). You can see it in this video underneath the new Minimax head they are featuring.

    Just something to consider. Happy Hunting.

    Checkout the GK Neo112-II new for only $449. Fantastic tone, very reliable and musical and lightweight too. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Neo112II

    +1 That is one of my favorite 1x12's, period. It also happens to be crazy light, and one of the most affordable. Very impressive cab, in my book! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :cool:

    Not light, but around $300 used and sounds great - Aguilar GS112.

    Do you mean a combo or just the cab?

    If I was in the market for ...

    a combo: Traynor DNB112
    a cab: Traynor DNBX12
    Not the lightest, but sturdy.

    Lighter combo, less than 1/2 the weight, but 1/2 the power: SB112

    Traynor TC112. I bought 2 of them for under $500 in total. Great sounding cabinets, and 25lbs each. I don't think they can be beat.

    Just for the record, the "TC 112" cab referred to here is a Traynor. One of my models is also abbreviated as "TC112" (and it's above the OP's price range).

    Not a 112, but Mike Arnopol makes a high-output 110 that would be competitive with a good 210 in output, and it's within the price range. It's called the MA-109 .

    Got my Aggie DB112nt for $280, but $300 to $350 is probably a bit more common for one in really nice shape. One is perfect for 'coffee shop' gigs or recording. I'm looking for a 2nd cab for use in louder bar gigs. I've got a serious case of GAS for a four-pack of DB112nts for the occasional very large stage gig. Four cabs may seem a bit extreme, but its only four 12 inch speakers, so i can justify that

    Ampeg SVT112AV for me. Unless, of course, I were handy with wood, in which case I would make a fEARless 112. You can build one on your budget easily, and they'll outperform anything else mentioned so far.

    Do you have one - or two? I'm an ampeg fanboy. Just wished they offered it in a NEO. Their NEO cabs are priced absurd.
