    sorry for the n00b question guys, but seriously, anyone use one of these or would I be better off with a SWR or something?
  3. A Boogie 6x10 will likely be loud, clear, punchy and indescribably HEAVY. My ancient Road Ready 1x15 is all this; a 6x10 can only be moreso.
    BTW, there's a seemingly little-enforced rule against bumping a thread more than one every 24 hours. Have a little patience. :)
  4. I've no experience with a Mesa Powerhouse, but I was very interested in one some time ago and looked into it. As far as I know about it: it is a wonderful cab with the only drawback of the weight. So certainly recommendable :D

    Mesa 610 kills. That's what I tested my titan through. Tons of punch, but plenty of bass.

    I have a vintage powerhouse 810 that should be here any day now... They're heavy, but a lot smaller than ampeg cabs. Very easy to move. The sound makes it all worth it.
  6. +1 to the above about awesome and crushingly large and heavy. I just played the standard Powerhouse 610 with the new M6, and it sounded AMAZING. But 134 pounds... my god.

    If you don't mind the weight, the Mesa cabs/Mesa heads combination is very, very good to my ear. That 610 is a great combination of hit you in the chest thump, with nice low end (more than a fridge type sealed cab), and wonderful treble extension due to the very nice switchable crossover frequency control. But, 134 pounds!!!!!!!!

    I'l tell you what, if I ever was contracted to do any type of 'tour' where someone would schlep my gear, that M6/610 rig would be high on my list for backline.
