    I just wanted to express my complete satisfation with my Basson cab (www.bassonsound.com). I just ordered this beast from their factory in Carlsbad, Ca...and let me tell you, I never imagined an amp could put out this much power. It is something like 2000 watts at 4ohms, and since I run it constantly at 1600 watts with my Ampeg SVT-4 Pro, I get the sound I've always wanted out of a bass setup.

    I've played all the stacks....from Ampeg, to GK, to SWR to Eden, and without any ego at all, Basson takes the cake. It is a very responsive cab and the low end rumbles my entire house. I wouldn't trade it for anything else, as Basson has given me a new outlook on what quality tone really is.

    Has anybody else had any rumble time with this stack??? Keep it heavy! :bassist:

    That's a big piece to lug around...I'd like to hear about the 2x10's they have & their comparo's to the "big boys" (eg.- AG, Acme, EA, etc.)...

    I've played the 210. It ws very deep and thumpy and very loud. Not a lot of detail at all. Good for some rock if you just want bottom and big smooth low mids (a'la Aggie 12's but perhaps a bit less focused). Ideal for reggae. It would make a good sub. It's also about the size of most 410's. You can't fairly compare them to the more hi-fi cabs unless you're wondering who can thunder out a low B as the only factor. It's apples to oranges.

    I didn't think it would be your cup of tea. I think the sheer output of the 810 alone must make it a rather remarkable cab judging soley on what the 210 can do. Just not for everyone... :cool:

    I've got the 1x15; very loud. Much louder than the Hartke 4.5XL that I use it with.

    i have the 8x10 basson and OMG. I've played just about every bass cabinet out there from ampeg, SWR, Epifani, Fender, Hartke, Bag End, Dr. Bass, etc. None of them compare to the basson! I am running 2,500 watts to the baby and holy ****, it rattles my house. It blends very well with 2 heavy guitars. The sound spectrum is unbelievable, like fill said. You are screwing yourself out on probably thebest bass cabinet ever if you dont look into one. Forget what some of thes guys say about the 2x10. Look into the 1x15, 4x10 or 8x10. Those guys just dont know what a true bass cabinet is.
     
  9. I checked the specs on the cab. 228 lbs! :eek: However, according to the specs, it looks like a rather impressive, and efficient cab. I think I need to start looking into some 810's. :smug:

    228lbs!!!...

    Whewwwww, that's a LOT of weight to move around there. Imagine trying to load that into a vehicle(truck) & then to your gig...you're getting into "Meyer's territory", weight wise...

  12. i have the B210b and its very good. it is also very heavy, but like the OP i am very satisfied with it, i play in a blues band and it owns the low end. It is very heavy, but compared to my previous gig cab, the peavey 1810, it is nothing. Its got casters and has good grips so moving it around isn't hard at all...a little over 100 pounds isn't horrible...and the tone is great too :)
