    Hi everyone. I am an average player and I play mostly 70's rock(Bad Co, Thin Lizzy, etc..) I need help findind a new cabinet to play through. I realize the best thing to do is listen and choose the one I like best, but I live in the mountains of North Georgia and am an hour plus from a Guitar Center or any other place to try stuff out. I currently play through a Carvin BX500 head and have Siesmic Audio 4x8 on top of a 1x15. Preference would be an Ampeg 610 but not currently in my budget. Was looking at...

    Carvin BRX10.2---a 2x10 setup and pretty light weight
    Carvin BRX10.4---a 4x10 very, very heavy
    TC Electronic 4x10
    Marshall 4x10

    Would like to keep it under $500 shipped. Weight could be an issue(have a bad back), but I can get help if I need to. Thanks.

    I know a number of rock bass players who have been getting into the Hartke 210XL cabs and swear by them. They go for about $250 new. They are light weight and sound pretty nice.
    Are you near Cleveland, Ga? I have family there and am considering relocating there. Pretty country.

    Avatar is running a special on their 410 cabs: $429. For a $100 upcharge, you can get neo drivers so you'd end up with a 65Lb 4x10 for $529.

    Just a thought.

    You might check out Sweetwater and Musician's Friend. They are selling the GK Neo 2X12's and 4X10's like hotcakes.

    The. Carving BRX10.2 is a great cab, IMHO. I have one of the 4 ohm cabs, rated @ 600 Watts continuous. It does really good with the low B too.
