    What's a good single 12 cab that's available in a 4 ohm version?

    I'm looking for something to pair up with my tfunk for home use.

    I'd like a Bergie ht112 but it's not available in 4 and since the HT series are known for being power hungry, I don't think 200w will be enough to feed it.(Did anyone try a bergantino single 12 with a tfunk???)

    What do you reccomend?

    If you are just talking for home use, then I think that you would be quite happy driving a single HT112 with the Thunderfunk. In fact, I bet it would sound pretty good. If you were to start gigging in a fully amplified band, then I might suggest a second Berg (EX112 or HT112).

    But, a great option for a 4 ohm 1x12 is the EA Wizzy. Truly an impressive cab, in my book. It it one of the more colored cabs from EA, but this is intentional. It has a bit of a hump in the upper mids, and the net result is a somewhat full/warm tone, but still retaining great clarity. If you scroll down the posts on my blog, I did a Mini Cab Combo Shootout that included two Bergs and two Wizzy's.

    Hope this helps, Tom.

    I use a single Bergie HT112 with an Eden 550. Sounds fantastic.

    If you have the filthy lucre, go with a Berg HT112. It is a killer cab.

    The completely fill a house with bass and only weigh 26 pounds.
     
  12. Haven't played the Schroeder mini's, but the 1210 and 1212 are about the same size and just a little heavier than a typical non-neo 112 and are 4ohms. With a TF, you could do all but the largest, loudest gigs with one of those, and the matchup sounds great! I you know for sure it will only be for home use, the mini's would probably be awesome... but the 1210 or 1212 would give you the option to use that rig on most gigs without a second cab.

    Do any of you HT-112 owners think that the HT112/EX112 is lacking in the lows department...I'm also looking for some portable cabs, but being a kind of supportive player, I need cabs that can get me some lows....I know the Bergs are middy compared to others, but can they get the low end with a little EQ?

    I think that the HT112 is pretty good in the lows. They are certainly tight and well balanced, and about as loud as you could reasonably expect in an enclosure of its size. Yes, my T-112 has a stronger low end, but it's also a good bit larger.
