    I have emailed them twice about products but haven't heard anything yet.

    I'm trying to get a UK price list. There UK distributor seems to be a bit slow on the uptake as well. *checks inbox* :meh:

    They make great stuff, and Thomas is a nice guy (I only talked to him and tested stuff, I haven't bought anything, though). Everybody I know who owns Tech stuff raves about it.

    They even make the occasional (great) oddball product. :D

    hey!! thank you all. Essex is is pretty close to me, so I think i'll give 'em a buzz.

    I am very interested in the 2x12 too.


    There are a couple of SECO (cheaper range apparently) cabs on ebay at the mo'.


    any more info? Are there any 'pro players' out there who are using these cabs? anyone 'well known' that is?

    I hope you get a response on this, I saw their site in the best 2x10 thread and thought wow when I saw the cabs, got me gassin already :(. For now I'm chasing a Hartke 1x15 of some description but for a future rig (think tubes in large quantities) these look very interesting, 1x18 + tweeter + 1x10 in one cab and a 6x12 for the other, how much ass would that kick!

    I'll drop a post in when I get an answer.. I would like to give 'em a go at least!

    I have the following cabs on a bit of a short list,

    1. Accugroove Whappo Jr (yum)
    2. ACME 4x10
    3. Tech 2x12
    4. EBS possibly?? 2x12
    5.

    The few things these all have in common is that they are NEO cabs and are HIFI ish and are available in the UK

    Really? I swapped emails a while ago with one of the German guys who spoke English. He was very helpful and replied almost straight away each time.

    I was also considering the 2x12, but they're not available in Australia as it turns out :(
