    I just picked up a used Avatar 212 at a local music store for $150! I'm not sure of the exact model, but it is rated at 4 ohms, has two 1/4" jacks and a tweeter attenuator.

    I am integrating it into my rig, it is replacing a Hartke 410XL. My new rig is SansAmp Bass Driver>BBE 462>Sunn Coliseum Slave>Avatar 212 & Joe's 115. I have not had a chance to put this through it's paces yet, but I am pleased with the initial results! I will post pics soon.

    This is also the first thread I have started since (finally) renewing my Supporting Membership!
     
  2. That sounds like a great rig. Curious about the Sansamp and power amp combo.

    I use an Avatar 212 and 210 with a GK 1001 and it's just great. the 212 is a super versitile cabinet and loud as hell.

    I have the b410 4ohm model and i love it. Great standalone cab. The punch is incredible! I wish i could get a 1x15 for some growl but then i would have to get a 2 ohm head :meh: maybe later

    I have an avatar 212 with my ashdown head and its a great amp. Avatar cab is great, if you dont turn the tweeter up too high (Foster tweeter).
     
  5. Awesome deal on that Avatar.
    I love mine

    I have heard that, but this tweeter does not seem so harsh. I had a SWR Workingman 2x10 and I thought that tweeter was ear-splitting! I don't use much treble in my sound, and I have been able to get a decent full range sound by varying the attenuator. I'm not sure where I set it, because I was reaching around to the back of the cab and turning the knob!

    I couldn't move on it fast enough when I saw it, especially after all the great feedback I have seen on Avatars here on TalkBass!
