    Hello there,

    I'm looking into my options cab-wise at the moment and have decided to go with Mesa :smug:

    However, I was just wondering how the mesa roadready cabs compare to the powerhouses - are they effectively the same components in a different enclosure?


  2. All I know is that the roadready cabs are very heavy

    Yes they are basically the same cabs built into flight cases.

    A friend has an older roadready 2x10, awesome cab but its very heavy for such a small cab.

    I guess you need to ask yourself if you really need flightcased cabs. For the amount of stuff I do a homemade cardboard slip cover is enough.

    The older road ready cabs were designed more similar to the Diesel series and mostly came equipped with EV speakers.
