    I always wanted one of those. On a scale from 1-10 how punchy is it? Also,..how is moving it around?

    The Quantum 600 is a bit punchy itself. With my precisions with flats and the punch filter on the amp it's like a 10. Turned up high it's almost a kick in the chest.

    With my jazz though I'd say it's like a 7, or down to a 5 without my amp's punch filter. So the punch is definatly controllable.

    The nice thing is even with the high punch it doesn't get boomy.

    It's a bit akward to move around. It's a tilt back, but it doesn't have a nice bar to hang on to like the ampeg tiltbacks. I'm a fairly tall guy 6'1", and I don't have super long arms, so it's a little akward to push around as the cab's only a tad over 3' tall.

    On the upside weighing in at 100 lbs, it's pretty easy to pickup or manuver anywhere.

    Not as much "trouble" as an SVT cab, punch is very close, clarity and TRUE(i.e. non-colored) is very good(ask Amy in Clatter or me), and yes...is awkward a bit to move.

    The ONLY drawback I found was on short stages, the clarity shoots past you due to the cabinet being short. Other than that, it is a GREAT "Honey I shrunk the SVT cabinet!" plan. VERY good cabinet.
