    Im am trying to decide between the Avatar 4x10 with the deltalites or the 4x10 with the kappa pros, they are the same price here in Canada, which would you recomend for drop tuned play, i usually play CGCF but sometimes DADG and weirdly enough since i have a string I sometimes play ADGCF.

    And oh yea, I will be getting a 1x15 to go along with it some time this summer.

    Any input on either cab would be appreshiated.
    Thanks

  2. According to the speaker gurus around here, the 10" Neo speakers are much better at handling the lowest frequencies than the Kappa.
     
  3. Would anybody care to elaborate on the differences, because I'm trying to decide between the two as well.
    Thanks!

    The Neos are electric bass drivers, the Kappa Pros are PA midbass drivers that were designed to be used along with a subwoofer. The Neos go a full octave lower than the Pros.

    I would go Neo. My Kappa Pro is about the heaviest 2x10 I've run across. Sounds nice though.
