    Guys and Gals,

    Posting this to see if anyone has any thoughts on this cab pairing, or possibly some better suggestions. Please feel free to share your opinion or your own set up.

    I plan to pair the Bergantino 212-NXT (4 ohm) with DG-410-N (4 ohm) for a few reasons:

    1) I want a good cab to play metal/hard rock, and DG seems to have specifically designed cabs and pedals for this.
    2) I also want a good cab to play Funk/Slap, Rock, and have beautiful warmth.
    3) I want the setup modular and lightweight, hence the neo speakers

    Since Berg does not make a new 410-nxt, the obvious choice would be 212-nxt, and pair with DG 410. I'm not overly interested in their new cabs that have backwards facing speakers. I'll be standing in front of them at all times anyways.

    I'll be Bi-amping these with my SVT4-Pro which is good for 2 ohms on each channel, but since it's a bi-amp set up, I don't think the two 4 ohm cabs will drop the rating to 2 ohms, since it has two separate amps. They should both run at 4 ohms. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this, as I've never actually hooked up two 4 ohm cabs in this configuration yet. I normally run it mono bridged with NL4FC wiring config on the head side.

    One other cool thing, is that If I'm just playing at home, I can use whichever cab I want for the style I'm playing at the time. I'd also like to note that while DG markets their cabs with a metal bias, the N series cabs have excellent clean tones compared to their older first run models.

    Right, so if anyone has any suggestions for alternate setups or feel like sharing their own situation/suggestion regarding mixing cabs for genre balancing, don't hesitate to drop a line!

    Just get a pair of NXT212's: that's what I use for hard rock and metal, and it's a MONSTER rig.

    There's no way of knowing how well the DG cab will pair with the Berg tonally, they won't stack well, and they won't look particularly aesthetically pleasing as a pair either.
