    I read this on the Bottom Line,

    Jim Bergantino designed the Aguilar cabs, and helped design Epifani cabs. Just thought it was an interesting fact to know.

    Hmmm... i think that's right. but with Nick, he was an assistant or something.

    but remember he only helped design them, but they are different animals in their own right.

    but also just goes to show that Jim's the man. :D

    I was just in a Sam Ash yesterday and the salesman said that Jim Bergantino ripped off the Epifani design of the 3x10. I do not know how much to believe. I have a Bergie 3x10 and love it. I AB the Epifani and the Berg and made my choice. I know the salesman is affiliated with Epifani which could explain the unkind words he had about Bergantino. To me both 3x10 speakers were very different! Do any of you guys know anything more about this?

    He also said that Epifani has a patent on a 3x10 design. I don't know, could I patent a three legged table if I wanted?

    Demeter also has a 3x10, and I'd be willing to bet some other companies do as well. Anyway, Berg's seems to be quite different in design. The Berg is wired for a lower impedance, has better frequency response specs, and is a great deal heavier, suggesting something that was designed to be more of a "stand-alone" stage cab, whereas epifani's seems to have been designed with portability in mind.

    Guys, don't believe everything you hear (or read on the internet!)
    People (manufacturers, salesmen, etc...)have all kinds of reasons for saying stuff.
