    I was looking on the Yorkville website tody at the XM200. I can get the origional Tolex cover model for 699.99CDN or for 599.99CDN i can get the same amp but carpet covered.

    Does this 100 dollar difference seem strange to anyone else? Can anyone figure out why? The way i see it carpet is way more durable and doesn't get scratched so it won't show if i decide to sell it.

    There have been a few threads on TB from people who built their own cabs and were contemplating covering them with Tolex. They usually change their mind when they realise how expensive it is.

    I use carpet on mine because..... well you know why. You listed the reasons in your post.
