    This weekend I had the chance to take my Acoustic 220 out of my basement, and play at gig levels, for the first time in 26 years. It was amazing! still as quiet as ever, when not playing :) and with great tone when cranking. I have it going through a 2 x12 and a 1 x15 Trace Elliot. So, here's my question... I've always believed you have to move air for good bass. In the day I had the 4 x 15 Acoustic cab and now I've got what's mentioned above but I'm no spring chicken. Forget price, is there a really nice lightweight cab out there that can compete with the heavy cabs? I'll keep the heavy stuff if necessary but man, a weight reduction with no sound loss would be grrrreat.

    Epifani's cabs are super light. Also super expensive.

    Bah, I just missed out on getting a 220 for $150Aus. What a shame...

    Schroeder, Epiphani, Bergantino and even perhaps Accugroove would be a good place to start.
  4. Flite 15" weighs in at 28lbs. pushes air like you wouldn't believe.
    I love the cabs, when music in the general vacinity of the cabs you can feel them resonate sympathetically. 500w @4ohms
    Oh yeah I forgot to mention that's without Neo speakers, just plain Eminence. ;)

    the schroeder 1210 is a monster (tone/volume wise, not weight)
