    I bought an Avatar B410 this summer, and while i was unbelieveably happy with it, i realize now that i didnt really need it and am considering selling it and gettin a 210. I figure i could get the Avatar 210, but i was wondering if there was any other good 210s in the 350-500 price range, or if maybe another speaker size altogether would be a better choice?

    If you really liked the sound of your 410, the Avatar 210 uses the same speakers. I don't know if it's exactly 1/2 size but close. Basically, it would have the very simair tone to the 410, just a little quieter...3db to be exact. There are plenty of affordable, decent 210's out there but all will have a little different tone, for better or worse, that's a subjective "tone thing".

    Just remember that a single 2x10 will not be suitable for most to gig with. in my mind selling what you have and buying smaller will cost more in the long run than keeping what you already have. Y'know what Murphy would rule: as soon as you get the 2x10 ya gonna need the 4x10! :)

    If you dig your Avatar 4X10, you'll dig the weight, portability, and TONE on a B210! Sounds really nice with my Carvin BX500

    another vote for sticking with avatar. The only reason I didnt get the avatar 210 is because I got the 212.

    Id be happy to trade my 212 for your 410 =)

    Yea if you are downsizing due to size weight, consider a 2x12 - nice compromise between delivered "oomph" and size/weight of 410 vs 210..

    2x12 is a great...well it's almost wrong to call it a compromise really lol. You'll get plenty of bottom end with less weight, it's a good setup IMHO. I personally prefer cabs that have tilt-back casters on them, so a 4x12 would be my preference but you can do some serious damage with a 2x12's.

    Nice rig Dr. Jim!

    OP, Two 2x12's or 2x10's should get you the tone/volume you need for bigger gigs and one cab will cover the smaller ones.

    Thanks!

    They are (210s) the same depth as the Epifani UL and NYC t-410 cabs. I haven't needed more, but of course I want more. Blame reggae!
     
  13. Carvin BRX10.2Neo is another choice. I have two, to be paired or used separately.
