    The Goliath IIIs are probably less sensitive to where you set them up since they're front ported.

    Other than that...I don't know.

    Yes, I think there is a sound difference between the goliath 2's and 3's (that was your question, right?). What they are, I couldn't tell ya. From the word on the street, the goliath 1 is the 'best' but that's just what I've been told. Go try them out and see what you like better. Or just do what I did... get whatever is the best price. :p

    Also, I dunno about the ported issue BillyB brought up, but that's for another thread.

    TO my ears the 2's are a bit darker sounding than the 3's. As far as the porting goes, it shouldn't be an issue unless you put the cab right up against a wall.
