    I use a pair of SWR Goliath III power by a Mesa Titan V12. I probably found the perfect rig for me. However, I'd like to "optimize" my rig, especially the cabs.
    They are to me perfect: Punchy, massive lows, crystal clear and clean....
    But I was wondering if I could achieve the same sound with some lighter cabs. I was thinking about the Barefaced of Mesa Subway cabs.
    Any better choices? I'm I right to consider this brands?

    You have a Titan!

    You will get lots of opinions, but you are talking top tier stuff. There are tons of lovers of both BF and Mesa Subway. I am a huge SWR fan, but you will get similar performance on those other brands. Do you have a way to try before you buy? Probably easiest with the Mesas. Good luck and keep us posted.

    LOOOOL!!!! Leave me alone! ;)

    According to you swapping from SWR to Mesa or BF won't change much?

    Mesa and BF will both be loud, deep, and clear like an SWR G3 but easier on the back.

    If it's just easier on the back, I might keep my cabs then.

    check out the new Genzler BA410-3. Not only will it be easier on your back, you'll get better dispersion too. Here's Andy Irvine's review...

    If you're open to two 112's, he also reviews the BA12-3.

    Is it a barefaced cab?

    I didn't hear any players like Andy, but I heard the new 410 array a few weeks ago - it's kickin'. :cool:

    You still running IEMs and looking for tactile sensation from the cabs, or you want something that sounds nice?

    my bass tone can beat up your dad's bass tone.
    unpopular post but

    the markbass Ninja 212 is bloody good. Deep lows, very clear, nice mid push, takes 800 watts like a champ too.

    ugly a sin and pricey though.

    This cab continues to amaze me. With my GK MBF-800 and my MIA Jazz Bass this fills the whole room. Fantastic tone and only 40 pounds.

    I give you the K-210.

    That'd be a Greenboy - another line worth of consideration.
