I need a good one !
There is a amp forum right below this one ^^.
If you want you can edit your post to delete this thread and re-post it in Amps.
When you recreate this in Amps (or it is moved by a moderator) you may want to add choices for Acme, Aguilar, Bergantino and Epifani. You'll find that there are quite a few fans of these missing choices.
Moved to Amps.
Of the ones you listed, I had to vote for Eden. Has anyone tried one of those Accugroove 2x10 cabs? The specs read like an Acme but with 103db sensitivity. But, we all know that there is more to selecting a cab than reading the specs.
Repeat after me: "there is no best".
My favorite is Bergantino. Your favorite will be the one that you like best.
Is it only me, or is there an increasing number of essentially pointless "poll" threads popping up here on TB?
It all depends on your need's. For me it was weight and portability cause it does not take much to throw my Back out.
So I went with the Hartke Transporter. When I was shopping for a 2X10, I tried out the cabinets listed below.
Peavey, good tight tone, but very heavy.
SWR Workingmans, pretty good tone, kinda pricey.
Hartke 2.5 ported, sounded great, very expensive, too heavy.
Ampeg Porta Bass, good tone, way to expensive, very light.
There is another Hartke 2X10 inbetween the Transporter line
and the 2.5, but nobody had one in stock to try out.
I wound up paying $225.00 from Sam Ash for the Transporter
cab, they were on sale. So I comprimised and went with it.
Regular price was $249.00. I am very happy with it,I use it with a SWR Workingmans 15 and a Ampeg PB250 head.
I'd put money on the Accugroove Tri210L being a prime contender to the crown. But there is no best, just different.
also, what are you gonna use this for? are you gonna just use the 2x10 by itself?
if so, take a look at Acme's B2, or Eden's 210XST. hits those awesome 31Hz lows.
I already got a 1x15' Mesa
Agreeing with much of what was said above, I would say that a list of the "best" 2x10's would have to include the following:
Accugroove Tri 210L
ACME Low B2
Of course, they are all very different beasts, and will have varying strengths and weaknesses.
I voted 'other ?', meaning 'Bergantino'.
I've had good luck with my ampeg porta 210.
sounds great and very portable.
I just bought a few phil jones bass cabinets and I'm replacing my 210 with 9 5's.
I'm selling the Ampeg for $400 if you're interested.
great, now, what kind of sound are you after? what kind of music are you playing.
sheesh, like pullin' teeth!
EBS 2x10 or
tho ebs all the way...
I'd recommend an EBS or an Epiphani UltraLite (or regular if you aren't going to use it outside)
I would love to hear
Accugroove Tri 210
Bag End D10BX-D sound nice.
Aguilar GS210 sound decent.
So... Why buy the ultralite 2x10 for outside and not the
regular. Other than weight, whats the difference???
The 210ul looks like a smokin cab. Light, powerful. Whats the
sensitivity on the 210ul anyway?
I'm partial to the glassy tone that comes from the SWR 2x10 (Goliath Jr?). Great tone for a decent price. And paired with a Son of Bertha (1x15), you can't miss!
