I've gone through several "ideal" cabinets over the past few years but I may finally have one that's going to do just about everything I need it to. It's small enough to fit on the smallest stages, can move enough air for any of my non-PA supported gigs and BTW, sounds fantastic. It's the only cabinet I own that seems to capture the "like my bass but louder" sound from very quiet up to louder than I expect to need to push it. Don at LDS was an absolute treat to work with. His input and experience really helped me come to understand what I was looking for. He even steered me away from a configuration that would have cost more but probably wouldn't have fit the bill as well as this one. The 2x8, 5 + Tweeter is 500W and 4ohms and seems to love my Claurus. First gig will be New Year's Eve with a traditional country band... can't wait.
