    So, I just wanted to see how much love is truly in TB for Avatar speakers!! They are built in the USA, won't wreck your budget and they sound great!
    Here is my 500 watts Avatar B2126. I put castors on it because, well, I'm a little lazy when it comes to moving bass cabinets!

    Show us your Avatar!!

    No longer have pics but I've owned 3 cabs over the years. A B115, B210 and a SB112. Bought them during the early years when they were stupid cheap.

    I got an SB-112 for $170 years ago, which I modified by replacing the tweeter with a Eminence LA6-CBMR. This was before they were selling the 126. It's a great cabinet. A little heavy by modern standards, but sounds great and can take a lot of juice.

    Love my B210 Neo! Got it here back when shipping was cheap.

  6. I believe they are out of Coeur D' Alene, Idaho - so about an hour from where I live.

    Remember reading a rave review on a 210 cabinet that was under $300 as I recall. Wish they still did, I'd have bought one years ago.

    I own one of their older 210.. I don’t know the year, but it doesn’t have Speakon connectors and it has a little weight to it. I love to sound of it and keep it at church for service music.

    I got my older B212 from offerup for $200, it sounds great to me and obviously the price was right!

    One thing I wish Avatar would do is to not fabricate the covers with the white cotton like backing material for their black rug/rat fur covered cabinets! I realize it’s all about costs, but that really needs to change.

    Over the years I've bought a 212, 210, and 115 from them. Still have the 115. Spray painted the grill chrome to match the SWR and GK :smug: . My 3 favorite cab brands

    Hard to see it in the stage pic but the Avatar 115 is there stacked with CAM00550. FB_IMG_1529509337005. the GK 212.

    I had a few different generations of the B210 (?), and probably at least a couple of the SB112's several years back, and maybe even one of the little 'cubes' … my fav was the B210 with the Delta's, preferred that over the neo version … stupid cheap at the time, especially used, good quality, and Dave was always a pleasure to deal with ...

    I haven't used their bass cabs, but have played with guitarists who use them and they sound great. I did go to the Avatar shop to get parts for one of my amps and Dave was really helpful.
