    I've heard alot of TB people talking about Avatar cabs. What kind of tome do they have? What other companies are they very close to?

    The 2x10 has a ton of PUNCH. The tweeter is a bit noisy and can be shrill when turned up, but I keep it down pretty low, and those highs still sing loud and clear. I have to say, I never really appreciated mids until I got this cab.

    The 1x15 is very DEEP, and when I crank it up at home, it BOOMS and shakes the walls, but when using it at my gig last week, it had more of a THUMP than BOOM (different acoustics).

    Oh well, one man's mud is another man's jello pudding.

    I have the rear ported ones. I'd really like to hear what people have to say about the front ported versions of these.

    I feel the same about my 4x10. I leave the tweeter off completely. Great sweet sounding mids--handles everything on the five string superbly down to the lowD. Mine is also rear-ported.
    good luck!
