    Hard to find a bass cab that weighs more. If you're young with a strong back and have pals in the band who will help you load it and a truck to haul it, go for it. They sound great, especially with a 400+.

    Personally, even though I love the way they sound, I'm selling off a bunch of Road Ready cabs because I just can't put up with the back pain to lift 'em anymore. With small, lightweight cabs like Epifani, Bergantino, etc. out there, I'm too old for a Road Ready Mesa these days. Sad, in a way. Because they have serious punch and bottom.

    Hey Boogie,
    think twice before you sell those cabs bud...I sold my m-2000 and RR 2x10 and 4x10 a year ago and I regretted it ever since...just couldn't get the same sound....I actually bought the whole rig back for a bit less then I sold it for :) about 2 weeks ago...my point is that the RR cabs seem to have a unique punch to them that i couldn't get in any other cab,so try out a bunch before you sell 'em.

    Berg 210, now that sounds tasty. Let's take it to PM and see what we can work out, eh?

    I agree about the sound of the Mesa cabs but I just can't load 'em these days! It pains me in more ways than one but I gotta get rid of 'em.
