    What's up ya'll


    so i'm tired of carrying my 1x15 back and forth from practice. i'm looking to buy a 2x10 to keep in my room and just take my head back and forth (and maybe throw the 2x10 in the mix everynow and then).

    i don't want to spend more than 250 bucks. any decent cabs for this price? i like deep warm tones.

    also, due to my budget, american musical supply is looking good because you can do three payments over three months (no interest or credit check). any other websites do this?

    :help:

    It's $229 for the Avatar B210 man. If you get any 2x10 close in quality to the Avatar from AMS, 1 of your 3 payments will be almost that anyway. If guess you could go with a lesser quality cab from AMS, but it won't sound as good as the Avatar, but will cost at least as much....

    I had an SWR Workingman's 210T for awhile...only reason I got rid of it was to make room for some new gear...really nice, full tone, for a 200W 8 ohm cab.

    Also agree, Avatar is the way to go.
    (The only reason I'm not getting my 15 from Dave is because it weighs a ton.]
    Inexpensive 2x10s from AMS are going to be Hartke,or Behringer now sells cabs. Have NO idea how they sound or how well made.

    Hi, I hate to just repeat the previous posts but, Avatar all the way. I think you'd regret getting a Hartke or Behringer. I've had a Hartke and tested Behringer, I didn't care for them. YMMV

    Now that I think about it, I've got an 8 ohm Avatar I'd sell. PM if you're interested.
