    While im not suggesting this is ideal but i have gigged with a LMII in to an Ashdown MAG115 cab without blowing it. It sounded very old school and i liked it but felt i could do better so i got a UL115 but thats a lot more money.

    Well, I would look at the Genz Benz Neox 112T. It's the best 115 I've ever seen!! 300 watts / 8 ohms, big, round, smooth....

    What about the Dr. Bass DRB 115. I haven't heard one but it gets great reviews and the neo version at a little under $500 shipped is only 36lbs. I think this is my next cab purchase. 600 watts 4 or 8 ohm.

    Greetings from the North,

    Check out the new design Traynor TC115 cab. This cab kicks plenty bootey with no mud! 300 watts at 8 ohms, tough truck bed liner coated exterior, pop out casters and this cab is rugged, looks good and will last a long time. Sounds awesome and has one of the best warranties in the business. Give Astec Sa in Alcobendas a call and they should be able to hook you up.

    I was intrigued by the carvin BR115... but is it possible... it's worth 319$ in US and.... 640 € (998$ !!!) in Spain!
     
  10. my gk 115 SBX is rated for 400 and performs very well for me.
     
  11. What kinda sound you after? No point in whoring cabs when you don't even know what their gonna be used for...

    For a variety of gigs type. The key requirement would be definition (e.g. not muddy) although I do understand that usually good definition comes with higher price......

    If you're looking to keep it inexpensive, a used Peavey BX115 would really do the trick. You can find them used and in pawn shops around $100-$125. They're a lot of cab for that price.
     
  15. We have gotten good feedback (pardon the pun) about the JBL 2226H. We have it in a Music Man 1x15. It will do 300 at 8 ohms.
    Good Luck :)
