    Hi everybody. This is my first post here :bag:

    I am going to replace my horrible handmade cabinet.
    But can't decide what to buy. I'm going to use it standalone under my Ampeg SVT-3 Pro head. I'm playing hard rock and groove/funk at venues up to medium size. Also i'll use it for recording.

    What will be your choice of these;

    EBS NEO-210 (500-1000W RMS 2x10"+2")
    Frequency Response 50 - 18k Hz
    Sensitivity 99 dB
    Power Rating 500 W RMS
    Impedance 4 ohms
    Weight 20 kg / 44 lbs
    EBS-311 (400 W RMS 1x15”+1x10”+2")
    Frequency Response 40 - 18k Hz
    Sensitivity 104 dB
    Power Rating 400 W RMS
    Impedance 4 ohms
    Weight 39 kg / 87 lbs
    EBS-212 (400 W RMS 2x12”+2”)
    Frequency Response 30 - 18k Hz
    Sensitivity 99 dB
    Power Rating 400 W RMS
    Impedance 4 ohms
    Weight 34 kg / 76 lbs
    Ampeg BXT-115 HL4 (300W RMS 15"+2")
    Frequency Response 42 Hz - 18 kHz (-3dB)
    Impedance 4 Ohms
    RMS Handling 300 Watts
    Sensitivity 99 dB
    Dimensions 23 x 26 x 19
    Weight 105 lbs

    You can suggest any other options of full range, 4 ohm cabinets.

    I can put in a good word on the BXT cabs. Highly overlooked and underrated. I just don't want to lug them around anymore and am trying to downsize.

    on specs hands down the 311. at 104 dB sensitivity it is 5 dB louder than the other cabs, which means to get those cabs as loud you would need about 3 to 4 times the wattage. It's big, but i doubt you'd need anything else. If youcan try them go ahead, but the 311 sounds pretty cool.
