    They are on sale for 249.00 + 42.00 shipping. I was going to order the B210 Pro, but saw that and jumped on it.

    i was looking to get one, but my funds are quite large enough, i still need a new digital camera and power/pre. taking up my 800 bucks easily.

    Maybe i should sell my 2x10 from avatar and get the 2x12 or just wait and add the 2x12 to the 2x10!!!

    From the website:

    "The B212 Delta LF is available in either a 4 ohm cab or 8 ohm cab (just one) and is rated at 1000 watts rms."


    So does this mean that the 8ohm version has only one 12" speaker?
     
  5. No, that means that it is only available in EITHER 4 or 8 ohms. Not both at the same time.

    Hmmmm.... not long ago, the 210's went on sale... once they were gone, the "new" 210 Neo and 210 Pro came out....

    Wonder if the same thing is happening to the 212....

    Terrific deal for $249, though. All you folks who are looking for a good cab on a tight budget - take note....

    Hmmm, I was thinking about getting an 8ohm 212 to match up with my Ashdown EVOII 500.... Then adding an 8ohm 210 later... Possibly one of the nice Ashdown ABM 210's or maybe just another Avatar....

    Decisions...

    When I called Avatar to ask a couple of questions, I asked if the B212 was going to be replaced with a B212 "PRO"? I was told that they had a very large inventory of the 212s and were trying to clear some out.

    If not mistaken, they were over 300.00 + shipping (329.00?)

    They were $279 plus shipping.... now $249...

    True, it's not that much of a drop... but this cab was such a screamin' deal at $279, it's almost shocking to see it go down even further....

    If you were going to order this cabinet, ordering it now and paying less for it would be better than paying the regular price.
     
  17. They were $319 plus $42 shipping when I got mine about 6 months ago.

    Thats $70 more than they are now. I think that's a great discount on an already great value.

    Thanks for the information. These aren't sophisticated high end cabinets, but they are indeed a great deal. The 212 delivered for 291.00 is well worth it. I will be using mine along with my 210. I have great expectations for the combination.
