    They're a ripoff when you consider the quality and power handling you get from Dr. Bass and Avatar. I wouldnt touch them, even if I was desperate, to be honest.

    Tekhna, I hope you are not thinking of those cabs with your Trace. You would kill them quick and they would kill the Trace's tone! IMO ofcourse! :p

    Avatar my man, Avatar!

    Well, I am running an avatar 2x12, but I was just curious about the backlines! I want to pick up a Dr Bass 2x10, just to give them a try.

    They're actually good cabinets. And anyone that says otherwise, I doubt has tried them. If I remember correctly they are the same speakers used in the old RBS cabinets, and if they haven't changed, SBX cabinets.

    Uh, I have tried one and I didn't like it. I tried the 410 through a Backline 250 head and (to see if it was the Backline head) an Ampeg SVT III Pro. With both heads IMO the cab sounds lifeless. There was just something missing :confused: and it didn't inspire me musically.

    As always, its just my opinion. :D Best thing is go check out some locally if you can with your head and your bass.

    Maybe it would have liked it better had I taken my Trace and my BC. Who knows?
