    ...with the Line-X coating, which looks great, and will stay that way!

    Initial impression is: I have a bit of tweaking to do. I haven't used a 4x10 in a while. And, I don't miss the tweeter. There's plenty of high end, especially for the Chapman Stick, which was a primary reason for this choice of enclosure. Boy, can this thing get loud...really loud, and the drivers don't look like they're moving much at all, is that a good thing?

    The Line-X stuff is great, everyone should drop the nasty carpet and use it.

    p.s. sorry I haven't had the opportunity to post those pics of the 2800 watt tube power supply, I haven't had access to a digital camera, but I should get a chance over the holidays.

    Ja, it's a brand name spray -on bed liner. It's very tough, scratch, tear, solvent resistant, and repairable. Cat claws don't stand a chance.

    HA! i was joking, kinda...

    but man, i've been thinking that cab makers should coat their cabs in bedliner for a while. only thing i could see is that if it's kinda rough like some are, that it could rough you up while carrying it.

    Yeah, it could do a number on your knuckles if you're not careful.

    I guess is kind of like the EA CxL line of cabs.

    Forearms??

    Do you think I'm going to pick this thing up my self?? There's drummers for that!;)

    The dead lift from the floor is tough, but I can do it, just lift with your legs!! I'll be putting it on top of my rack anyway, so I won't have to be getting it up and down off the floor all the time.

    Did I mention this thing is loud? No, I mean LOUD. nice.

    I'm doing my best to supress the GAS to add an ELF-18, it'll be hard though...(anyone have an ELF-M2 they're not using??)

    Hey coyoteboy, is that cab loud enough? I kinda thought that all the Bag End speaks were kinda mamby-pamby.:)

    I've got a pair of BE D10X-D's. Very loud and very efficient. I put a cab on each side of my WT-800 and peel paint off of the walls.

    I hope that you never have to deal with Bag End's Customer Service. But if you do, be prepared because it is one of the beat out there. And it sure doesn't hurt that the seem to be the only company that thinks enough about their equipment to place a 6 year warrenty on their cabs. That says something to me.
