Would it be possible for me to talk to your spinal column for a second ... in private?
Seriously, why carry around a ton of extra weight you really don't need.
Yes the van can fit the cab, but who fits the cab into the van? I more than once had to load my 6x10 myself, it sucked, and it was a 70lb Markbass cabinet... enjoy loading your own fridge.
Yeah-funny thing about the spine: he's your best friend......until he's not
IMO, if you're going to haul it like that, i'd get a cover for it.
it seems like if you went over too big of a bump, you might pop a wheelie?
There is a big misconception about luggin the 8x10 neo around .
It's only 110 Lbs with 2 great wheels in the back .
very easy to balance ,go down stairs or up.
Never had a back problem since I own it.
I use to screwed up my back with 2x10 cabinets ,
Not with this one as long as you have the right vehicule , easier than any cabinet with no wheels .
Also takes a small footprint on stage
+1 on getting a cover - or a road case.
that's so cool!
as long as it doesn't rain....
Probably sooner than later as folks begin to discover that there are cabinets out there that are far lighter than a 8x10 and that produce better sound.
And you can fit a pair of 15/6/1's into a Honda Fit. And don't need another person helping.
Add a small amplified mixer and you have a nice little bar band PA too.
We do have a cover for it, it was just such a nice day for a drive. We got some pretty amusing looks going through town.
Also to the fEARful crowd, I actually have considered going modular but the 810 is a proven standard for volume and tone; plus readily available for a reasonable price. For now, I'm young and the extra weight is worth the relative value of the cab.
... and some bungee cords.
That's all, full stop. It's got more punch, more volume handling, more clarity at extreme volumes. I will put that cabinet up against several others (at the same time). Just saying, I've used it for years and it's the best bit of gear I've ever bought.
To answer what some of the comments have been about loading and moving an 810 cab.
After reading comments from folks that have 810's about loading and moving those cabs what they said really made sense,,,,, I can see how an 810 would be and is easier to load than two 410's or two of what ever size cabs.
With my 210 cab and my 115 cab I am always lifting them for stacking or loading and sometimes making two trips for a load in and load out.
With an 810 cab there is very little lifting,,,,, it more tilting it in and out of my mini van and driving the cab around on its own wheels,, there is no dead lifting of anything for loading or stacking.
Im all about having gear thats easy to load and use and to me an 810 seems like it will be easier than loading and moving seperate cabs.
Another plus for the 810,,, I will never have to worry about not having enough for ANY gig,,,, that has happened to me a few times.
Yes, I will keep my GK MB210 combo and my MBE115 cab for the uber small gigs,,, but use the GK810 for the med to large gigs,,,, anyhow,, thats my logic.
The 810 is incredibly easy to move, load-in/out. Although I will agree that once the super 215's start becoming more commercial I would like to get one.
The GK 810 weighs 111 pounds,,, not 150.
...O.K., 111 pounds ...
