    I wanna build a 610 cab. I want it to sound punchy, aggresive but warm, not muddy. Almost like Ampeg but not as muddy and more fullrange. Kind of like the old Mesa EV equipped cabs.
    What kind of drivers would you recommend?
    I´d also like to keep the cab as compact as possible (round 160 litres).

    How about the Eminence Delta 10 as used in those Avatar cabs?
    I know it won´t go really low but I only play 4-strings pop/rock.
    It only needs 88 litres tuned to 66Hz (SBB4 ported).
    What do you think?
    I will probably use an Aphex big bottom to ad some psycho acoustic lows.:cool:

    If you're considering Eminence Delta's, you might also want to consider the Eminence Deltalite series, which are pretty much the same, but use neodymium magnets which are only a small fraction of the weight. You'd end up having one kick-ass sounding, lightweight 6x10 cab!

    Yes, I have considered them but they cost twice as much and need a much bigger cab. Otherwise I would go for it.:bawl:
