Similar to Powerhouse 210?

    Any recommendations for cabs that are similar sound wise? It's a great sounding cab, but I'm trying to switch it for a lighter weight one.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Your best bet is the PH 1x12. I love lugging mine around. It's a relief compared to the 2x10. Form factor is easier and it's probably a good 20lbs+ less. I forget what the PH 2x10 weighs... like 68 lbs?! Sonically the 1x12 is a phenomenal cab. It might be the best in the PH line... a little bit tighter tone and it's output is fairly massive for such a small cube.

    Funny, I've actually got the PH112 also. That's another cab I love the sound of, and it's definitely easier to get around with that one. I'd say it's a little tighter/mid focused than the 210, but they're more similar than different.

    Unfortunately a 112 doesn't quite cut it volume wise for me. I've thought about getting a second PH112, but the 210 platform is pretty much perfect for me. Enough volume and power handling to feel comfortable with a one-small-cab solution.

    Should note, playing through a 700rbii head.

    Maybe look into the DNA 210. It's not a huge savings on weight (maybe like 55lbs if I remember) but a few people have recommended them to me as PH alternatives.

    I'll monitor this thread closely as I'm in the midst of doing exactly the same thing. That 2x10 is a heavy mofo! I've been thinking about a GK Neo cab but I don't think it'll have the same thick and snappy tone. I'm running a 400RB-II through mine.

    I love the tone of the PH210, even more so then the PH410. But I have a pair of PH112 cabs now and they are an amazing little stack. So much volume and killer tone from this pair.
