    So I'm looking for a smaller cab like a 2x10 or 2x12 to go with my Genz Benz Shuttle 9.0 that puts out 900 watts. Even my current aguilar 4x10 is rated 700 watts. I'm concerned that my amp would overpower any cab that small, but I would really like to find something that's right. Any suggestions? I saw an Eden out there that might work, but that is literally the only one I've seen in the realm of the wattage that I need.

    Too much hip thrust
    You don't need to match your cab to the max rated power of your head. Just use common sense with the Master volume and work the cab within its limits. I ran a Mesa Titan into a 1x12 for a good while absolutely no issue.

    Get an 8 ohm cab, it won't have to be rated so high for you to feel safe. Find a 500 watt 8 ohm cab.

    Thanks all. If you have specific recommendations that would be most helpful.

    What's your budget and desired tone?

    Assuming $800 or less, and I'm using it for a Custom UBass mostly, but would also consider it for my 5 string Stingray. The UBass is a thicker, boomier sound, so I need something that can handle that.

    You could probably get a used fEARful 12 for that price and it would be louder than just about any market 210. Lighter too!
     
  9. I'm using the GB 9.0 with a 2X10 SWR Go Light Neodymium @ 38 lbs & 8 ohms, if I need more than 500 watts I'll bring along the Hartke 15 at 8 ohms.

    A used Fearless F210?

    Would be an AMAZING choice.

  12. I think your requirement is not for a 900w little cab. It's for a loud and low little cab and you happen to have a 900w amp with a volume knob.

    Ime there's a limit on loud and low with an acoustic ubass before it feeds back from its own awesomeness.

  13. I have a shuttle 9.0 and I use it with either of the 2 LDS cabs in my profile pics... both are 500 watts at 8 ohms and each gets really loud on their own...
