Anyone tried NEO bass speakers ?

  1. They LOOK very interesting .
    Bass rigs are big & heavy and NEO speakers could help a lot !!!!!!!!!!
    I wonder how they sound & if they are tough !!

  2. Yeah I've got a Markbass 4x10 and it sounds fantastic and is very light (55lbs). But they're not cheap, I paid 800GBP for it which is pricey.

    I think the technology has been around for a while but the early Neo speakers suffered from overheating, but obviously sorted now.

    I don't know if there is any sonic advantage to Neo speakers. I think it's just a weight thing. I got fed up breaking my back lifting heavy cabs in and out of the car boot so for me the extra expense was worthwhile.

    As for reliability, I play very heavily. I have no technique to speak of, I just beat the **** out of my strings and the Markbass seems quite happy with it, but as I've only had it two months I suppose only time will tell.

    Just do a search on Neo Cabs. Thread posted this week with title of GK Neo Cabs. Heard them last weekend. Liked them so much I ordered some. :)

    That was a sensible reply. :smug: ;) If he doesn't feel like using the search feature (which is best IMO), all he has to do is scroll down the next few pages in this forum.
