    I've been on the hunt for "two" light weight 2-10 cabs for a modular, vertically stacked, 4-10 rig for some time now.
    I've tried a W-H-O-L-E bunch of different manufactures 2-10 cabinets.
    Some VERY expensive ones!
    Some VERY.......VERY expensive ones!!
    I found a single, lightly used Avatar Neo 2-10 at a reasonable price. (Thank-you Dano59!)
    All I can say is, if your on the fence about going with a Avatar cabinet, go ahead and jump for the Avatar!
    This is one of the least expensive, quality made cabs on the market, and IMHO, it kept up with or outshone 99% of the high dollar 2-10 cabs I auditioned.
    It's got the lows, mids and highs. Good balanced tone, well built, and capable of very loud volumes.
    Only problem I've found thus far.......now I definitely want a second one!

    No sir. Would have liked to. Carvin is one of the few major cab manufacturers that I didn't have the chance to audition.

    Gotta say, welcome to the club! Avatar cabs are THE best cab for the money, no matter which brand somebody is trying to push as the best. They do it for my ears, and I've only done this for 41 years now!

    I use a twin 2-10 Avatar rig, vertical stacked. It is a great rig, I can always hear myself very well and can get any sound I want or need.

    I bought my cabs used, $300 for both. Nice.

    They excel in Bang for the Buck.

    I'd gigged 2 vert stacked 210's for a couple years. Now I've invested in a better PA (QSC K10 series) and am now able to just use a single avatar 210 on stage and let the PA work harder, so I sold my other 210. Dual 210's aren't going to give someone bone crushing sub low earth moving low end, but they're going to be very present, full and listenable on stage. Just depends on what the player needs, and what their perception of 'acceptable' is.

    They work great for my needs.
