    what kind of speakers would be best for this type of stuff.
    and can i use the foam between the wood for light wieght still?
    i want this to be light.
    not ungodly light or anything just under 100 lbs for the 8x10

    I can only wish you luck in this category buddy. Making an 8x10 under 100 is going to be a challenge. Let me know if you actually do it,I'd like to know. :p -Luke

  4. The Nemesis 8x10 is unusual. Nemesis cabs are made of styraphome or somthing.

    The Nemesis cabs are not styrophoam.

    They are made of a composite which is lighter and stronger than the plywood which is used in most cabs.

    Its also less expensive!

    I have the 2-10 combo and it sounds great.

    Peace

    No, its is like plywood in that it is layered.

    To my knowledge most plastics would be heavier or weaker than a piece of wood the same size.

    My guess is that the plastics that are llighter and stronger are also more expensive. Im guessing that its probably part plastic, but also mixed or layered with sheets of another substance.

    Peace
