    I'm searching for some days for posts about the NEO cabs, but almost nothing found.. :confused:

    I know, people are very pleased with the older EVO2000 series (I am, too - using a 2x10) , but now I'm thinking of getting a 410 or 212... and thinking of NEO.

    these neo speakers are even more powerful, if I read the specs... but in real life? am I too suspicious?:rolleyes:

    please, report some good or bad news on it... thank you!

    the strange is, that I can't even find a single review on the net, except some old ones, which are published on the EBS site..:rollno:

    Check out the TB classifieds, there is a guy there selling some EBS neos.
  4. I have a Neo 1x12, that I use for rehersals and small gigs, paired with a Markbass LMII. It's a high quality piece of kit - no doubt about that - and, so far, I'm happy with the sound and volume I get from it. Unfortunately, that's about all I can say about it, as I haven't compared it to any other cabinets or anything.
  5. I had a pair of Neo 2x12's and I have to say that they are tonally very different to the existing non-neo range. I have to stress my comparison is between Neo 2x12 and non-Neo 4x10 (which is like comparing Bourbon and Chardonnay). I couldn't state if the difference was because of the drivers, the cab design/volume or what-ever but don't expect to go from traditional ferrite magnet EBS cabs to Neo and get the same tone but less weight!

    Sorry if that's not much help.

    Thanks for the answers, guys!
    I think, I will try the 410 NEO, and see if it's right for me... with some luck I could keep my little 210, for smaller gigs, and smaller space in the car :)
