    I can't answer any questions re: price, and haven't played many of those cabs. But, I can tell you that it's got a very high sensitivity rating, and at 4 ohms, it's the loudest cab I've played through, to date.

    It's also very responsive and seems to sound exactly the way I want my bass to sound. I play an active US Spector and a passive MIM Jazz with DiMarzio Ultra Jazz p/u's in it and both basses sound the way I want them to sound through my rig.

    I will say this, however: While not a problem for me, it has raised an eyebrow or two before...The cabinet's frequency range only goes as low as 70 hz. To me, my 4-strings rumble even on the lowest "E". To you, if need be, there are full range cabinets in the EBS line if you want. I personally don't think it is an issue. You might, however.
