    Has anyone played both these cabs? Tone differences?
    I have an Hiwatt 200 searching for its cab :)

    The Barefaced Four10 may be a better match than the supertwin.

    Why the BF Four10?

    NV212T and Super Twin have same speakers (12””) and no tweeter.

    Sorry but these cabs have totally different speakers and the cab design is different as well.

    12" is where the similarity ends.

    The Four10 is designed to be “tube amp friendly”, is the same width as your amp, and is significantly lighter than the NV.

    I know about different speakers but i would to know the tonal differences between them.
    Now i use the Hiwatt with an Ampeg SVT-212av but I’m looking for more mids and low-mids. So...a punchier tone and more focused notes.
    I always been a 12” man... but i haven’t Played any Barefaced.
    I have owned a NV610 too, in the past.

    Have not used either, but since the nv212 is sealed and the Barefaced 212 is ported, the Berg might be a better match.

    Did you ever decide on a cabinet?

    I've got a supertwin and used to gig an nv412. I'll bet they aren't worlds apart. They would be closer than any other mentioned.
