    I'm looking for a new rig sometime at the start of the new year.
    Right now I am torn between two cabinets.

    Both are Crate, both are 4 ohms and 220 watts, and both are made to go with the BT220H head.

    The BT215 is 2 x 15"

    The BT410 is 4 x 10"

    I was looking at them on music123 and since the more expensive of the two [the BT410] has free shipping, it comes out to very close to the same price.

    Which would you choose? :meh:

    EDIT: here's something else!

    There is a BT115 cabinet that is $100 cheaper that goes with the same head. Also 220W.

    Would this be more worth it than the other two? BT115 Link


    Oi! I'm so confused!

    Well, i just got a BT215 on sunday, and well, let me say, i am quite dissapointed with this cabinet. However, i was not using the crate head, but a carvin 100watt tubed head. It sounded alright when i played it with the crate head, but it seemed to fart out when turned more than half way up. And for around $375, you can probably find a different cabinet for the same price, and be way better quality. Also, i must say that tonight when plugging it in to my amp, the input jack broke and fell inside of the cabinet. :mad: I will be taking this cabinet back and getting a refund for it as soon as i can. As far as my experiences go, i do not like this cabinet.

    How bout neither? For the best bang for the buck in that price range, go Avatar (www.avatarspeakers.com) or Dr. Bass.

    a.k.a. Don't go with Crate.
     
  5. Don't buy solely on price considerations- when the 'bargain' doesn't do what you ask, you'll lose 1/2 the value dumping it & then end up buying something slightly out of your present range. And don't buy Crate...
