    I'm about to purchase a Flite cab for a "super portable" rig, in conjuntion with a Clarus amp. I have heard the 12" flite, and I love ther sound and light weight, but have not tried the 10. I really like the smaller size, but I'm wondering if it is enough to cut it with a drummer, piano, and 2 horns. (small jazz gig in a cafe is the typical venue). Unfortunaly, there are no Flite dealers out here, so I can't try one out before ordering.

    Any Flite 110 owners out there that can share their expereince?

    I have a Flite 110 that I use with just that kind of band, but also add an electric guitar. It works fine, but I suggest you point it up or put it on a chair so you can hear yourself. The audience will have no trouble hearing you. Of course it depends on how your drummer plays - is he a jazz drummer or a rock drummer playing jazz.

    I have a Flite 110 and 112 with a Walter Woods 300 watt head.
    and Realist pickup.The 110 works fine with a Jazz combo.
    The 112 has just a little more low end bass sound.But both work
    fine with a Jazz combo that doesnt get too loud.
     
  4. I use a Flite 110 with a Clarus 1 Series lll amp all the time with sax and/or trumpet, piano and drums, or in a Scofield-esque guitar-bass drums trio configuration, in small, to med-sized (75-200 seat capacity) venues. No Problem.

    I had a Flite 10. My teach bought it from me and he digs it. He uses mainly whenever a room gives him a problem. I liked it alot, didn't really want to sell it but it seemed he was very into it and I was willing to try other choices. Not the most hifi but it get the job done. Besides, it's hard to beat 15 lbs. IFIW, I would pick up the 10" with a tweeter or a 12". I think that would sound better, but I've never tried that cab. I've heard the 12 and it's a little better than the 10 but it's also 7 lbs more.
