This is great advice. Also, modularity rocks!
Markbass Traveler 151 is only 36 lbs
Yours weighs 36 lbs. My 250w Trace Elliott 1x15 is 60.
Good stuff, thanks; at 70, I am not going to haul a pair of speakers around. Looking for a standalone solution. The GK looks good.
I would not be mixing. With PA support, I am looking at one and done
I’ve had a pair of rumble 15s and currently have a pair of the bassmans. If you look around you can definitely find bassmans in the price range of the rumbles, I know I lucked out and got one of mine for the same price as a rumble used and got a brand new one on close out for cheaper, during the beginning whispers of the pandemic. They definitely have a little more heft and clarity in sound to them than the rumbles, but I really liked my rumbles and wouldn’t think that the sound difference is that noticeable unless you A/B’d them side by side. The pure reason I moved to the bassmans was they are wider so my vintage sized amps didn’t hang over the edges!
Ampeg PF115. Not too heavy, on wheels, sounds good quiet or loud.
I spent the money for one of the current ultra light and small neo 15s (not Mesa), and I preferred Rumble 115.
I believe that when the cab designer pushes small and light to the limit, something else must be compromised. Not an expert but I think it's a fact that not everything can be optimized all in one box.
Which cabinet was it?
I'd suggest your checking into RevSound cabinets.
Great sound, well built, very lite weight, fair priced.
You will get a lot of opinions, ( including mine ! ), but the best thing to do is go out and try as many as you can, and make a decision based on how it sounds to you. Having said that, I have been using 15's for most of my 40+ years of playing, and have tried quite a few of the newer, lightweight, neo cabs. My fave is the Schroeder PL15. Its light, has a nice, low midrange, inherent tone, excellent tweeter, easy to schlepp. I usually only need one cab, in a moderately loud Blues band.
I'm sorry, I don't want to say.
That cab, and amp by the same manufacturer, were let's say "ultramodern", to me. Mistake for me, that's all.
Get a Rock N Roller cart and you can move anything. I can use 1-12 or 2-12s or 1-12 + 1-15 or 2-15s or all together. The 12s weigh under 20lbs , the 15s (non neo) under 37lbs) 1st Pic all cabs, 2nd Pic 2x12s

The GK is probably one of the best cost/size 115's going. I know you're trying to keep costs in check, but my Revsound 115 is 25.2 lbs and handles 400 watts. When I was looking for the lightest 115 single cab option it was the obvious choice.
Look for a used Mesa Subway 15 or even a 12, i gigged a single Subway 12 with a 5 piece band, they would tell me to turn it down!
Bag End S15-D all. the. way.
I use a Rumble with a B&C speaker and it's definitely the business. I'll include the specs on the speaker. Tons of low end and with the tweeter handling the hi frequency I don't need anything else with it.
This is the route I am going too. My 1x15 cab is not so heavy but awkward to move. Plus age & previous back issues I'd helping me decide
Fender Bassman 115. I have 2 and they are very light. Don’t know the Lbs off hand but I can carry one in each hand.
I think they are around $600.00 each.
Good luck with the hunt!
not in your price range, but the best 15 I've ever used.
