    So, I have a Berg AE210 vertical and a CN 212. I typically do not use the AE since I have the CN212.
    Even though the CN is relatively light, it is a pain getting in my car.
    I recently picked up a Subway D-800 and have used it with the CN212, and was thinking of going with a Subway 12 and 15 as another option. That way I could use the 12 at practice and the pair for gigs. The load in would be easier.
    I do not want to part with the CN212, but do you think that the the new Mesa Subway cabs have it over the Berg AE210? The AE 210 is 8 ohms so I do not typically pair it with anything.
    Looking for user experiences and advice

    First I'd say get another AE210 - I had 2 AE210's which blew all noisy guitarists into the weeds. I also used an AE210 with an AE112 underneath for all "normal" volume gigs. Both rigs had great tone and volume.

    The 210's were sold off and replaced by the CN212, which I occasionally run with the AE112.

    But you don't want to sell the CN212 - so I'd sell your AE210 and buy a CN112. Then you can use each cab separately or together, with your 2 ohm amp.

    I haven't seen anyone say the Mesa cabs sounded better than the Bergs so I'd stay where you are with the cabs.

    I know this doesn't help with the car. But, hey, you can't have everything.

    Thanks guys, I have had Bergs for a while so was thinking of a different flavor. I had two AE112 series B cabs that I sold and wish I had them still.
    I really miss a 2 cab modular rig, but not 2 CN112s (I know that is not what was proposed).
    The other thing is I also have a MarkBass CMD112 that I use for practice and could use one of the cabs with one of my heads rather than keeping the Markbass just for practice. Trying to get rid of some redundancy at the same time.
    While I have seen reviews of the new Mesa cabs, I have not seen a comparison of the Bergs to the Mesa, would be interesting to get some comments

    So finally had a chance to try the Subway cabs. Nice cabs, but I do not find it worth replacing the Bergs. Also not a fan of the form factor.
    Did a gig Sat night outside with the Mesa and the CN212 and it sounded great. Rethinking about just living with what I have and use the AE210 Vert for small gigs.
    Maybe I should try the Mesa with the CN212 with the AE210:woot:
