    Hey fellow TalkBassers,

    I'm looking for a cheap 2x10 cab to pair with my Hartke HyDrive 1x15 for playing live. I play in a loud Shoegaze/Sludge band and I want to push out more volume without bringing a big 4x10 along (due to circumstances with vehicles we can't bring a 4x10).

    The 2x10 needs to be able to handle 500w (I have a 500w Terror Bass head) and that's about all I can ask. Used gear is absolutely fine.

    Not sure about the power handling capability but a used Hartke Hydrive 2X10 would seem like the logical choice. You can find used Avatar 2 X 10 Deltas (the non-neo equipped) cabs in the $200 - $250 range. Those are rated at 700 watts.

    Sorry, I don't believe the HyDrive is offered in a 2 X 10. As an alternative, you might want to consider this:

    If running a 500 watt head, the enclosure will not "see" 500 watts when run in conjunction with the HyDrive 1 X 15. From what I recall, they're plentiful and relatively inexpensive. $250 w/ free shipping from Amazon, 1/2 that used if you check the usual resources.

  4. I recently picked up a used Behringer BB210 at a pawn shop for $55. It is a bit rough cosmetically but that's alright because I want to refinish it with Duratex.
    I know they don't get a lot of love here on TB but it sounds good to me. They are discontinued so you would have to find a used one on CL or Ebay.
