    I've been running a Bergantino CN212 most of the time and it sounds awesome. Sometimes I just feel like a want a wall of 4x10s.

    I have a Bergantino HT210 that sounds awesome and much lighter since I put NEOs in it. I've paired the 210 with an Epifani NYC T112 and an LDS 4x8, but I'm thinking about unloading the 112 and the 4x8 and either picking up another 210 or a 410 or maybe unload most of it and go for 2 MESA Subway 210 cabs or an Aguilar SL410.

    Amplification used: TRICKFISH Bullhead 1K or MESA Subway D800+

    Vertically stack the 2x10 with the 2x12. Sell everything else. Save your cash.

    Why isn't "awesome" enough any more?

    Get a CN112 and run a 312 stack. Same as now but sounding even better.

    The TRICKFISH Bullhead 1K should not be run under 4ohms... I believe I'm just missing the 10s...
    After the holidays, I'll put stuff up for sale. In the meanwhile, I do enjoy the awesome of the CN212
    Thanks!

    I like the tighter sound of small speakers live, that's why I've kept the 4x8 LDS cab. 15s are too dark for my ears. I need the midrange punch, which is why I enjoy 12s, too. I must have light weight to carry and a heavy bottom to listen to without mud. The search of tone; does it ever stop?
