Avatar compact weight comparison

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Davidoc, Apr 5, 2003.

  1. Does anyone here know why the Avatar 12 weighs the same as the compact 15? They use the same cabinet as far as I can tell. Can a tweeter really make up the weight difference between a 15 and a 12 inch speaker?
  2. As long as the c15 has a good frequency range it should be damn good for a 15" cab that only weighs 40 pounds
  3. Well, the magnet on the KP15 LF weighs 5lbs more than the KP 12. It's possible that the tweeter system (crossover, tweeter, wires) weighs 5lbs.

    Sounds good to me.

    BTW, I really dig my C15. The low end is a little compromised...but works perfectly as a monitor for shows w/ a PA
