    Check out www.bergantino.com for the new 12 to go with the 210S. I sure like my HT210/115 but I like this idea of smaller, lighter combination of speakers. Any thoughts from more experienced users on the specs for the new cabs?

    After hearing the HT210S, I am really Jonesing to hear it with the EX112S. Compared to the HT210, the "S" version is not as refined sounding, but was more punchy and really had an appealing sound. A bit more "old school", but very articulate.

    Looks like a modular HT-322. A good idea!

    Ive noticed that the ht210 and ht115 is no longer on the site. Did he discontinue them?
    Still, I would love to try out the new cabs.

    That'd be a bummer -- used my HT115 at a coffee shop gig on Sat and it was so sweet! What a great standalone.

    Although, this new setup looks pretty wicked as well, and that depth should definitely make the cabs easier to cart around.

    I will have to make a trip to www.clubbass.ca and A/B my HT210/115 with the new S cabs. I do love my setup which I bought to be portable. It is, with a cart, but the S set up would make it easy to move around. Would I be right in guessing that you could can use the 210S on its own but the 112S must be used with the 210S?
     
  10. 11 1/2 deep?

    I'm interested. (anyone else sick of really deep cabs too?)

    You would be correct. The 112S goes to 2.5 khz and the bottom port is a dead giveaway that it's designed with booty in mind. I think we're looking at my new setup. :D

    I played this setup at Rockcity in Somerville (Boston) last week. Man, killing little rig. It is indeed made to be similar to the HT322 but more portable. It does sound quite different than the HT322 as well. I like it more. Many people have said that the 322 can't be heard well standing close to it on a stage. I guarentee that you won't have a problem with the s stack like that. Because of it's depth it's punchier and'll cut more. The EX112s is not a standalone cab and was specifically made to go along with the HT210s. I'm sure that this setup will be a favorite for many people. I'd bet that two HT210s's with an EX112s on the bottom would be the perfect large rig. I love the direction that Jim is going with his products. I'd still like to get a way to have the 112 cabs' sound but larger. That's my greatest wish cab wise.

    Hi guys!
    EM Jazz pretty much nailed it........a punchier HT-322. Jim's whole goal was portability and punch. Neo woofers were not an option at this point, because they don't perform the way Jim wants yet. There is a lot of improvement to be done to Neo before it's in a Bergantino cabinet.
    The comparison?
    HT-322- BIG, full, round, very Hi-Fi......classic Bergantino
    HT-210s/EX-112s- PUNCH by the truckload! Not quite as "refined" maybe as the 322, but deep and fast. Same killer Bergantino tweeter and crossover.
    It's amazing how much sound comes out of these shallow cabinets, and they're super easy to "schlep"
    Neo is for girls! L.O.L.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(sorry ladies) :D

    Anyone know what the EX112S is going for? I might be able to afford the whole shebang at once if it's priced right.

    I had a feeling that was the reason Jim hasn't done the Neo thing yet :cool:

    Ah ha! So I will keep my HT210/115 and wait for the next Bergantino development where the cabs use Neo and are 6 inches deep and can put out 500 watts.
