    What are your thoughts on these? I've been really curious, but I don't know anyone in my town that has either, so I can't really check them out. Do they stand up for gigging? How are the Highs, Mids, and Lows?

    Not to be rude, search the forums. This has been beaten to death.

    i have the 212 and it sounds awesome. They are super friendly to, and the shipping was very fast. I have a mag600 head running mine, and i love the sound.

    I've got a 210 NEO and the sound is great. Daves a great guy. Avatar's service is A+++ :bassist:
     
  6. I ran 2 4 X10" Avatar Neo cabinets for about two years and they were awesome. Awesome service from Avatar, Dave is a great guy with customer service at the front.

    More information with the search though!

    2x12" and 2x10" Neos for me that's perfect as a "mini-rock" (as opposed to 2 4x10", and 8x10", or larger rig) setup: the 12" is great for low and low-mids, while the 10" are wonderful for high-mids and the higher-range. I'm thinking of picking up a 4x10" cabinet so if I need to amplfly myself with no PA the 4x10"/2x12" would be one killer rig, either the 4x10" or 2x12" solo would be great for a smaller volume, and having the 2x10" is a great option for either (keeping my current rig or a 6x10"). :D

    The only negative is one of my own - I purchased my before Dave offered the Line-X coating. I'd do unspeakable things to be able to own the 2x12", 4x10", and 2x10" with that coating and not worry about fur, smoke, and other annoying issues the you deal with when you have rat fur. :scowl:

    One of my band members owns the 2x12 neo cab. It is a really nice cab for the price. If you are trying to save cash the Avatar cabs are great.

    Using a GK 1001 RBII and the neo 2x12 8 ohm the cab can not take all of the GK. It can only take less than half of the GK. The cab is rated at 500W and the GK puts out 460 at 8 ohms.

    i use to think the same thing until i learned how to properly use my gk rb head. i thought the speakers were giving out but turns out the gk heads like to distort a bit at high volumes. could be just me though.
