  2. I don't see a reason why they couldn't. Turbosound speakers are fairly well-known, they aren't some sort of low quality brand.
    That said, I doubt that the 1000 watt power rating is accurate. It's probably 1000 watts peak and 500 RMS.
  3. I would like to see actual T/S specs on their speakers.

    If that cab handles 1000w, I'll eat it. No way in hell.

  5. Well, it will handle one of Uli's 1000 watt amps :D Uli Behringer has his own "special" way quoting power ratings. ;)

    Anyone else notice it doesn't have an Ohm rating? :confused:

    Says 1000w peak, 250w continuous on the back plate. x ohms... whatever that means...
  8. You can only expect so much performance from a 2x10 cabinet that sells for $250. For comparison, a pair of the 10" drivers used in Greenboy's latest designs (the Eminence 3010LF) will set you back $400, and that doesn't include the mid/high driver, crossover, cabinet materials, labor, etc. Something has to be compromised in terms of power handling, sound quality, weight, or all three. But with that said, why not give it a try? It might be perfectly adequate for what you want to do with it, and you can send it back if you don't like it.

    My guess is that with anything more than 250 watts pushed through it that box will fart like a hippo in a humus factory.

    Oh, marketing. The power ratings on the micro head are pretty ambitious. This probably just lines up with the way they market the entire line. Can't have a 2,000w head and not sell a matching cab.

    In that price range, I'd stay away from Behringer, but Bugera is definitely better. That thing will eat 1000 watts for breakfast and ask for 1000 watts more.

    It speaks volumes, pardon the pun, that my Mesa PH 210's are rated at 400W RMS and cost $729, while this cab is rated at 1000W and costs $249... I've always said.. you get what you pay for.

    It means it handles 250w.

    I don't know how any sound can come out the front as tight as that grill is.
