    wow... :eek:


    what a great sounding, LOUD little cab.

    it can handle everything my AMP bh-260 can throw at it without flinching. even with the bass knobs cranked on everything and dropping low B's on it, it doesn't fart out or anything. i would almost say it's louder than my triad. way louder than everything i'll need it for!

    sounds nearly as nice as my old goliath jr as well, maybe not as pronounced of mids but a bit more booty. crossover seems a smidge harsher as well, but running at 50% enables me to easily get "my" tone, so that's all that matters, right? :D

    construction is top notch. very sturdy! the grille looks a little cheap, but boo hoo :rolleyes: it was $179! i'll probably be getting something cool looking to replace it soon....maybe tweed? or a blue metal grille? it'll be sweet.

    i WILL be ordering another avatar cab. probably a compact 15 so i can REALLY crank up the volume.

    Congratulations on your most excellent purchase. :)

    That would go reeeeal good with my SVT. My 8x10 is too big, 2x10s don't have enough booty, and I don't like 15s. I love 12s. Especially cheap ones. And ESPECIALLY cheap, good ones.

    Wow. I bet some of the responses to the thread you posted asking about this cab seem kind of funny now. :D

    :D they sure do.




    seriously, you guys don't know what you're missing. if you want a bass cab and don't have a lot of cake or want to spend a lot of cake, this is your ONLY option IMO, and doesn't put you much further off that stuff you WOULD spend a lot of money for.

    honestly, i'm happier with my tone thru this little cab than any hartke, peavey, fender, swr workingman, ampeg, and even "gasp" eden cab i've played. (although i've only played the XLT's and really didn't like them. i'm reserving final judgement upon playing the XST)

    If you like the B112, you'll love the sound of it and a C115.

    The whole is way more than the sum of the parts.
