    I have an Avatar B212 neo and was wondering if anyone had done a direct comparison of these two cabs playing them back to back. I know the cabs should be this and that according to the specs, but I am more interested in responses from people who have done a direct comparison(tone, volume etc). The Avatar sounds great, but if I can get something better and lighter, then I may consider a possible upgrade. Thanks all.

    I have no experience with the Avatar and can't find any specs on their site, but I'd be willing to bet that the CN212 is louder. It's only lighter by about 10lbs, which is significant to some. The form factor is also very different, and I personally like the CN rectangle vs. the B212 cube.

    The CN212 is the best cab I've used. It's got a great tone, it's reasonably small, very light, and stupid loud. IMO it would be a nice upgrade.
