    Hey all,

    these things are too good to be tru!

    http://www.ampeg.com/products.htm?product=81&catid=30

    a 2x10 that weighs onl 32 lbs.!?!? almost as good as Glockenklang's "Lite" line of 2x12's that weigh only 44 lbs.

    anyone give them a go? any thoughts on the neodymium magnet speakers?
     
  2. The speakers probably have stamped frames, which save a lot of weight but are more failure-prone. There's no free lunch, although using the Nd magnets is a good idea.
