Stick with the 410? Or get a 212?

    I've been saving up and looking forward to buying an Avatar B410 NEO for a while now, but now that I'm down to the wire, cash in hand...

    I got myself stuck.

    Now I'm debating between that and the B212. Oh, decisions!

    Long story short, I just wondered what comments those of you who've had both (or similar) have about them compaired to eachother.

    I play fairly heavy rock often down-tuned. A 5 string tuned flat or a 4 in drop C, etc. I need clear lows, but don't want "grind" from the speakers or boom/mud.

    I've read here on TB that the 212 might actually sound a bit louder, but doesn't keep the lows quite as strong in the mix, but also cuts through better.

    If this is the case, then I'm stickin' with my 410 plan. :bassist:

    Thanks in advance for your comments/advice.

    I've been borrowing a Mesa Powerhouse 410. Nice cab. My low B sounds a little off, though. Like... hollow? Really could be the bass, though. She's been having some problems lately. :( Time for a trip to the tech, I think.

    If you're not wanting boom/oomph mud I'd recommend staying with a 410 with the ability to add a 212 or 15 down the road.

    I've had a few 410's, but not anymore. I'm using a 210/15 setup, a 212, and a 215. I really like the portability of the 212 best, and soundwise, I'm not lacking anything. But it really is subjective, only your ears will know which you'd prefer.
  5. i always thought the peavey 4x12 TVX really pumped out some serious low end. If i had to run a half stack that's what i'd use. It's a beast though- super deep and HEAVY! Think of it as a bigger, heavier marshall cab. But it sounds killer!
