I am looking for a basic 2x10 to use mainly as a practice cab with my amp, but i will also be combining it with my amp and 1x15 on occasion for shows. i am mainly concerned with price and sound quality. I just got off the phone with Don at Low Down Sound. He was very friendly and helpful. He said he could build me a standard 2x10 for $299. This cab would be 450 watts with a 100 watt tweater. 8 ohms. 2 week lead time. 1 year warrenty on the parts and 5 years on the speakers. from what he told me they are very serious about quality. now i am local to low down sound so this is the final price....there will be no frieght. I am also looking at the standard avatar 2x10 which is $260 (including frieght). this cab is 700 watts and 8 ohms. so which one? how do these cabs compare (yes i have done a search)? i want a smooth warm tone (not into harsh high end).
