Well, the 15" aluminum driver in my Hartke 2115 blew out again and I decided that you can force me to replace a driver 3 times, but 4 is just too much. So, I need some suggestions on a good cabinet to run with a Hartke 2000 head (for now). Maximum budget ~$600, but lower than that would be ideal, of course. I don't mine doing some belt-tightening if it will really pay off. I do a lot of slap. I also play in drop-D very frequently, so a cabinet that can handle notes at least that low (if not lower) is pretty essential for me. Basically funk, metal, hip-hop, and blues. If you have a gig and it's not crap music, I'll play it. I've found myself playing in clubs, auditoriums, and outdoor gigs, so I can't easily decide on a maximum power limit. Tone is the top priority with durability being a close 2nd. I don't want to deal anymore with the kind of headaches this Hartke has given me. I was thinking of the following options: - Avatar 410 or 212 - Ampeg SVT 410HE - Ampeg BSE 410H or HLF - Aguilar 112 (with another one to follow if my bass playing keeps up after I graduate) Do you guys think these will do the job? The Avatars have a great price, but I'm worried that their relatively high tuning means they won't be able to handle a drop D very well. At the same time, I'm a passive 4 string guy, so I can imagine that I wouldn't be using a lot of extended range cabinets to their full potential. The Ampegs I've played through sound great and seem to take abuse very well, but the ported models are pricey and those are the only ones I've tried. The Aguilar is a 12" and I don't know how well those work on their own. There's not a lot of good used gear available in stores near where I live, so I can't entertain suggestions about getting used top-drawer gear very easily. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.
