    Well, I'm planning on upping my rig in the next 3-6 months. But I want a cab that'll do my big-rig venues (my 1210 is good, but sometimes we play 1000+ auditoriums/churches with HUGE stages) and I need a lil bit more on stage.

    I'll prolly add a new power amp as well, like a Stewy 2.1, but just curious as to which of these cabs would rock it the best.

    I've heard the Berg is the possibly best-sounding of the group, but at 95lbs, whew!! :) So, yeah. Pro's and cons if y'all can! :bassist:

    Hey man,

    I own the Epi 410UL and have used it at outdoor events 1000+ and it kills. Thats what it's made for. I drive it with a Stewart 1.2 and eden navigator, sound on stage never a problem. Got nice spread and at 57LBS my back can't thank me enough. Though I am curious as to how 2 Schroe's 1210 would go as to the single Epi 410.
    Cheers

    Well honestly I'd just look at another 1210 or 1212 to add to my own, but, since their prices are comparable now to the Epi's and Berg's, I'm giving those a look.

    From what I've read, the Epi's are pretty killer. I think the Berg would be nice, but not sure if it'd be loud enough. Plus, I want a single-cab solution for this stuff.

    My amp is a Stewart World 2.1. I sometimes bridge it into a Bergantino HT210/HT115 stack, which is in the same ballpark as the HT322. I get plenty of sound out of that rig! :eek: :)

    I havn't experienced the Berg or Epi, though I do own the Schroeder.

    I play at loud venues with other bands using fridges, 410 + 15 or 6x10 rigs. I rock up with my little Schroeder and the loudest i've had it with the V8 is around 3 or so on the master, and around 1-3 o'clock on the gain. This little thing is LOUD. Not only is it loud, but as you would know, it fills out a stage really well, meaning that if we have PA support, I DON'T have to turn up much at all, because all the band can hear me, and I can hear myself wherever I go.
    Brilliant cab with awesome tone to boot.

    I have yet to find a venue my Schroeder 410 won't cover. They have great mix cutting tone, and the side firing speakers really give the cab the "surround sound omniprescense" on stage that just can't be beat.
