    I find a 30LB cab to be very reasonable in terms of portability so I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of 30LB bass cabs.

    Criteria is basically 8 ohms cabs that are primarily 112s, maybe the odd 115. The only 15 that I can think of that is 30LBS is the schroeder 15L.

    This is what I have so far:

    1. epi UL112(s1)
    2. GK neo-112
    3. Schroeder 15L
    4. EA Wizzy 112 (apparently these are available in 8 ohm)
    5. Bergatino AE (31LBS)

    Additions:

    6. EBS Neo 112 (27LBS)
    7. Barefaced Compact (26lbs)
    8. Markbass NYC 121
    9. Genz Benz STL-12T (27LBS)
    10. Traynor TC112 (25 lbs.)
    11. BareFaced Midget (25LBS)
    12. LDS (with 3012 driver)
    12. Schroeder Mini 12
    13. TC Electronics RS112

    What others are out there? I would prefer if the weight was kept close to 30LBS ie not 35 etc

    Availability to Canada is not a primary concern. I thought the info would be helpful for everyone.

    Anyway, I added it to the list. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Many extention cabinets can be thiel rated, enclosed and ported .. some have drivers that will go down to 40 hz.

    have a few in the 20-30# range.

    I've found steel guitar cabinets have a wide range driver... many are rated to 400 watts+

    The Genz Benz Neox 112T is 37LBS so I am going to scratch that one.

    I think the Genz Benz Shuttle 112T is misnamed and what was meant was the Neox 112T.

    LDS makes a cab very similar to the compact that comes in around 30lbs (a kappalite 3015). They can also make quite a number of other cabs in around that weight.

    Torin, I was referring to the cab that comes with the Shuttle 6.0, the 12T. I thought they sold it separately. Do they not?

    Hey Jim, I'll look into it, but I'm not sure.

    Anyone know?
