Rather than bring back my old thread I decided to post a new one. This time the question is: What are some inexpensive cabs that have good low B handling, while still having a good amount of efficiency? My cab price maximum is $700, and I'm looking for a good cutting or punchy sound with plenty of lows. I don't really like 15" and 18" speakers. I prefer 12", 10", and 8". I don't really like a HiFi sound, more of a classic rock type sound, but less muddy. Durability and reliability are a very important factor. I don't really want anything fancy (Eden, Aguilar, EA) because I wouldn't want to mess it up (I expect my gear will take a few dings and hits at times). I also like a good amount of efficiency, but it doesn't have to be something extreme like an Eden with 106 dB/w, just as long as it's more efficient than an Acme... (otherwise I'd get one of those) I plan to be using a Carvin R1000 amp, so I'll have plenty of watts to drive the thing if it does have low efficiency. Here's some of the many cabs I've considered: Peavey 4x10TVX (Looks good, heard good reviews, but I hear it's not tuned low enough for a 5 string) Peavey 4x12TVX (see above) SWR Goliath III (Hear they're clanky, not very much frequency response according to SWR Website) Please give more suggestions, thanks.
