    How would these cabs compare?

    Which cab would you recommend for a Wilco, REM, Jayhawks kind of sound using a P-bass?

    I´ll try this again. Still my main alternatives.
    And now when a few of you have tried the NV610 I might get more response. ;)

    Remember Im not fond of tweeters.

    the NV was built for the tweeterless, old school sound. i say go with your gut.

    I cant comment on the Aguilar but I played the NV 610 with a new SVT-CL head. The sound was fat warm and big but the main thing was the clarity. I couldnt directly A/B with my Ampeg 410 HLF (which is more like the Aguilar 410 ported 410 with tweeter) but it seemed like the NV was much more clear than the Ampeg, especially in the lower registers. You really should try them out if you can but if you like the sound of old school sealed cabs you shouldnt be disappointed in the NV.

    I love mine, but I don't want to keep typing the same thing over and over.

    :D

    I've tried the Aggie 4x10 a couple times (showroom only). It has clean tone, tons of low-end a$$. As mentioned the Berg cab is old-school, no ports or tweeter. It's currently my #1 cab. Personally, I think it's perfect for the chunky/growly P-bass tone. Probably doesn't weigh much more than the Aggie 4x10 either.

    Like I said before, this cab is a sleeper! The more people who hear the nv610, the more who will own it. It sounds good with low power and can handle the big power. JMO, I dont care for aguilar cabs, love their preamps though.
