    I have an Avatar 2x12 Neo Speaker cab with carpet and metal grill. It's a truly great cab, but I have to pay bills. As such I'd like to keep this local (~1-2 hrs of Moscow, ID) if possible, but I'll try to find a service that will ship for less than $153. (Update. I took the cab into FedEx and they want $142, but both these quotes are to NY, so the closer you live the better the rate will likely be) (I took it into the UPS store and walked out with that price and a bad taste in my mouth. Coincidentally if you have any advice on shipping this bad boy, speak up.)

    It's broken in, but not used for more than a few rehearsals and some home practice. Tweeter is pretty well behaved in this unit. Quote from recent PM

    "This cab is in excellent working order. I say excellent because many complain about tweeter hiss with these cabs, but the tweeter in my cab seems to be rather well behaved. It will hiss if cranked, but halfway up you would hardly know it was on except for the sibilant, shimmering highs, that is ;-)

    Cosmetically, I'll give it an 8/10. a little dust(which I'll endeavor to remove) and some scuffing on the plastic corners. Maybe one rub on the carpet.

    This cab will take 480 watts and smile at you. I've been running it at 500(not at extreme volume, but with a 500 watt head in the basement)

    I was running this unit with a 2x10 from Avatar on top, and it sounded killer. You will be pleased. I ran it bi-amped and full range and both just slew me. It was bliss. Too bad I have to pay bills.

    If your friend has a shipping dock a this place of work, it can save you $$$ on the shipping. Let me know so I can get a tailored quote to you.


    Stock Picture for reference, More on request.
    Here is the link to Avatar's website with full specs on this cab.

    $250+ actual shipping
