Well, it was fun while it lasted, but my cheapie Behringer 115 bit the dust earlier this week. Tested all the connections to be sure they were getting power, and they were. Blown speaker. We all know about Behringer's quality, so I don't feel that it was abuse on my part. So, I'm thinking about upgrading (anything is an upgrade to Behringer!) to either Avatar or Hartke. Here's the deets: For those of you who don't know, I play metal. I have an overdriven sound (think meshuggah) that has plenty of mids. We have one guitarist in the band, and we may have a keyboardist within a week or two. My drummer tends to be a basher (can't help himself...he just gets into it). So, that's what I'm competing with, soundwise. Now, I was playing with a 210/115 rig, without a crossover. Basically you could tell the 210 was carrying the mids and the 115 was projecting more lows even though both were receiving the full range signal. I was looking at the Avatar site, and I've heard tons of good things about Avatar. But, they only really have 212's and 410's for bassists nowadays. So, I wasn't sure if either one of them would deliver what I want. I also was looking at Hartke's vx215, a cab with 2 15" speakers. Not much info is available about this cab, so I was kind of discouraged. What I'm looking for is something to help with the lows, as well as the mids. I can't afford to buy both the 410 and the 212 from Avatar. But, I do like the fact that the Avatar cabs come with an active crossover with a low pass filter. I also have tons of power at my disposal, so power rating isn't an issue. Does anyone have the specs for the avatar cabs (the sensitivity and frequency response)? I'd love to know which is louder and has a better frequency response. I'm thinking, though, after reading a lot on the boards that one's going to be loud, and the other's going to have better frequency response. Also, does anyone have the specs for the Hartke VX215? I'd like to know how loud/low it goes.
