    Hi Guys:

    Still looking for my 2nd cab to go with my Ampeg SVT 15 for blues & reggae.

    Which do you think would be the better budget 2X10? looking for warm and clean.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Although I haven't played on the Hartke, I'd have to recommend the Avatar all the way. I own one, paired with another Avatar B212NEO and they are really well-built, great sounding cabs. I was really surprised with how punchy the B210 NEO was, alone.

    Mag...
     
  3. I wouldn't call the Avatar B210 Neo warm as in Ampeg warm, but it's definitely very clean and uncolored. I got one of these last month to go with a 115 combo, and what surprised me the most about it was how much low end it has. The mids are not as tight as some other 210s I've heard. I think the issue of low-end vs. midrange punch for this cab has been discussed in other threads here. Some like it, some don't. I like it. It's loud as hell, too.
