    I'm looking to down-size my rig, but not my sound....I'm wondering if anybodie's used a pair of SWR golliath JRs (2x10s) . I currenttly use a swr workingman 4x10 & a SWR son of bertha 1x15, powered by a Fender 400 pro. I play at a fair volume, with a clean thumpy hi-if tone. Any first hand imput would be great! thanx in advance!

    I used two or four at a time so I could get the max watts out of my two SM-400s. 220 per side stereo. One 4x10 Goliath II or III actually kicks more booty. Bridged into 8 ohms.

    I know the goliath would be great- but, it's all about size. I find myself having to drive further and further to gigs, and I need a rig thats "Dodge Neon" friendly! The 4x10 won't fit at all, the 1x15 won't go in the trunk. at $4.00 a gallon and 75-150 miles to some of the gigs, the van just has to stay home! It's a bass-vs-space thing!! Thanx:bassist:

    Could get the Golight 410 also. its like 55 lbs. or
    2 Golight 210's. those weight like 35lbs a piece.

    I'm not sure if the Goliath is larger then the Golight 410 though i would have to look that up.
    I have the Golight 410 and I love it. I also have the golight210. I use that for smaller gigs. Both sound very similar to their respective Goliath counterparts. I cant really tell the difference myself.

    I can fit the 210 in the trunk easily, when I take the 410 I put it on the back seat. It also weighs as much as the Goliath 210(the golight410).

    If you dislike neo drivers, then ignore this post. =P
     
  5. I think that would work out great. I drive an '01 Ford Taurus and use a Goliath Jr. and Son of Bertha with my amp and Furman in a 4U SKB rack. It all fits in the back seat, and like your situation, my SOB won't fit in the trunk or else I'd put at least the cabs back there.

    I havn't tried any of the neo drivers, but they seem to be getting pretty good acceptance, around here at least. I'd be game for em.

    2 2X10s stacked verticle and a headlite or some other light weight micro head and you would be good to go. Plenty of pop! Good luck with your search.
