  2. Do a search and see what players are saying about Avatar. I've never tried them myself, but for budget priced cabs I've been hearing a lot of good things about them.

    Yikes, $299! Somebody on Ebay has bid $505 on one!
     
  6. I believe they sold for $799 new or something...BassNW had one for $500. Worth it at $500, believe me.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I got my SWR 8x8 for $400.00 and I've yet to hear a punchier cab out there.

    If you do some searching, you can find one of these for a good price. It may take it while, but it's worth it.

    It's a 4 ohm cab that has amazing sound.
     
  8. Does that need a bigger cab for low end extension or is it good enough for deep dub bass? Maybe more of a rock/funk cab you think?
