    Hello everyone!

    I'm planning to buy a new cab. It needs to be as light as possible and not too big (let's say smaller than an average 2x12). Amp is Orange Terror Bass 500. I used to play Ampeg SVT210AV for 2-3 years and it was good for practices and smaller gigs (although 95% of my gigs are with good PA), but always wanted something more powerful and deeper. Sold it, bought TC Electronic K-212, but it was too bulky and too heavy. So I sold that too, and it's time for something new.
    I basically narrowed my search to 3 options:

    1. Barefaced ONE10: 500W, 7.5kg
    2. Markbass New York 121: 400W, 13.3kg
    3. Hartke Hydrive HD250: 500W, 16.6kg

    I'm slightly leaning towards Barefaced, but I am little frightened that it won't be loud enough. I am familiar with Hartke cabs, because I also have Hartke 410T and it sounds really good with my amp, so the sound with HD250 should be even better.
    I didn't try Markbass, but I can score one for 350€...

    Any recommendation would be helpful!

    In your neck of the woods I would definitely talk to Alex at Barefaced.

    At one time I played in a Croation band here in Toronto. I enjoyed the music.

    One year we played the Croatian Pavilion at Carnival. It was six straight nights. On the Saturday we all were a little tired of playing the same songs so we threw in ZZ Top's Tush. I sang. The audience gave great applause but the organizers were not too impressed!! LOL
