    hey,
    does anyone have any experience with these cabs? i havn't found anything on them online, and i can't access their website, so i'm really in the dark on this one. if anyone can offer me anything i'd be grateful, especially if they come in 8 ohms or not, if they're efficient and how they might compare to other cabs out there (like the swr 6x10, or the ampeg 8x10, etc.)
    thanks!

    I've been using a mesa-boogie 6x10 since feb of this year. I LOVE it! The tone depth and quality of construction are tops. It is extremely heavy so make sure you can get help moving it if you gig much, and the casters are an extreme pain in the neck to take off and on, but overall i recommend it highly.

    hey brewer9,
    thanks for the response. do you know exactly how heavy it is and it's dimensions? what amp do you use it with?
    thanks in advance if you can help with any of this.
     
  4. Well all I got out of their webpage was this:

    =6x10 Deep=
    • 900 Watt
    • Basis EVM Speakers
    • HF Driver
    • Tuned & Rear Ported
    • Casters
    • 4 Ohm

    A quick look in their catalogue didnt offer anything more to add, Im afradid :(

    Maybe that will help you some? Hope so.

    i just spoke to mesa, and the 6x10 is 181 lbs. !!!
    wow, that's a lotta cab. but they've been discontinued, so if anyone wants one, go out looking now. they'll shortly become hard to come by.
     
  7. Yeah, it's a well-built, great sounding cab, but what a
    back-breaking beast!
