    hey mark,
    I was browsing your site, as well as some of your posts about the fresh namm gear and I have a couple of questions.
    Firstly - about the Mini Whappo - is there some upgrade planned for it ? Right now from what you posted, it's so inferior to the Tri-210, that it ain't even funny ;) Also, will it be offered with the accuswitch ? It, and the Tri-210 are imho the cabs where that option will be the most useful :cool:
    And finally, how much is the Tri-210 going to retail for ?
    cheers,
    Charles

    Charles, The Tri 210L replaces the Mini Whappo. It's lighter, has more watts, is louder & deeper.

    The specs should be up on the site now. In the mean time please ask any & all questions.

    I still don't see it on the site. If only you could get a tri 210 into the tri 208 enclosure. ;)

    You're correct, it hasn't been posted yet. Just the Tri 110L & Tri 112L.

    Soon, very soon...[​IMG]

    I really need to hear the Tri 210L. I was very impressed with the sound of the Mini Whappo, and if the 210L is lighter, louder, deeper, and handles more watts, then it looks like my Whappo, Jr. is going to need a little buddy!

    That's why we made the Tri 210L to have the same foot print as all our larger cabs. It will fit perfectly on top a Jr., El Whappo, etc.

    Can you imagine two Tri 210L cabs @ 1200 watts?

    Don't get me started! :D

    I do have a question, though. Would you say that the Tri 210L sounds more like the rest of your Tri series, or more like the Quad series? If it is replacing the Mini Whappo, does that mean that it sounds more like a Quad series cab?

    Thanks, Tom.

    Questions?

    I've got some...

    How many ohms...4 or 8?

    What's the list price?

    When will we see 'em?

    I believe it has a switch that allows it to go either four or eight ohms, whichever you need. I think list price is around 1300 or so. And you would have seen them earlier if you had been paying attention! ;)

    All of our cabs, including the Tri 210L, have that signature AccuGroove sound, “clarity with booty.” They facilitate the ability to hear the true sound of your instrument as if you were listening with headphones. With that said, it is in a sense like having to of our Tri 110L cabs together with more depth & volume.

    It’s the cabinet that stands in the gap between the Tri series & the Quad series in every respect; wattage, size & sound. There’s more booty & volume than the Tri series while being smaller & punchier than the Quad series. The bottom line is that the bigger the AccuGroove cabinet, the bigger the sound. I hope this helps a little.

    That makes complete sense. I predict that you will sell a ton of these babies.

    By saying it will has the same footprint as your larger cabs, does it also mean it will sit perfectly on top of a Gordo or Whappo Grande ?

    Please explain the Accuswitch - I can certainly see how it can switch a cabinet between 4 and 8 ohms, but how can it do this without wasting half the input power in one position or the other?

    Waiting for someone in Atlanta to become an AccuGroove dealer . . . . .

    Being that it's Patent Pending, I really can't expound at this time; sorry.


    These guys have talked about becoming a dealer. You might want to call & light a fire under their...sub woofer.
