    ok si i play an svt cl through an avatar neo 4x10. the avatar does ok, but i need more. its lacking in the bass area, and just doesnt move much sound.
    i am pretty much set on the ampeg 8x10, because ive heard them together hundreds of times and have never thought bad about it.

    what other brands should i consider?
    i like my tone nice and dirty. i keep the master cranked for that power tube goodness, if that helps at all.

    Personnal tone preference is different from person to person, so I wouldn't recommend a specific cab. I use SWR's, Schroeder, and JBL. Looking into Brgantionos and Aguilars.

    However, size and transportability does matter. Especially if you're planning on giging a lot. On a regular gig, I use 2 basses, a rack with 2 heads, a 410, a 118, and a monitor for my drummer, and it gets to be a bit much, especially at the end of the gig.

    I coulden't immagine carrying a 810 to gigs.

    If I were you, I would probably add a 115 neo.

    Best of luck
