  1. what do you think:

    That's a mighty cabinet if I've ever seen one! Actually, I think a lot of thought went into the design...those two drivers on top along with the horn are gonna get your sound up to you while on stage...and the other 6 will project...Hmmm...480 watts handling...400 for the horn...Hmmmm...I dunno. I think $550 is a little steep for another toy that I probably can't carry anyways :D

    Thoughts?

    Looks cheap and the power rating confirms my suspicions that it'd sound cheap too.
     
  3. I must say it looks like crap IMO. If I gave him 50 bucks for it I would still feel cheated. He sure talks it up though.

    I would say run far away from that disaster. Yes I know I haven't heard it but I am basing this opinion strictly on looks. And I stand behind my decision :)

  9. Looks cheap.
    No design at all.
    A diagonal piezo horn????? Ewwwww.
    Cheap grilles.
    Probably budget speakers. And probably not even bass speakers.

    Just a wooden box with a lot of speakers in it!

    Do not, I repeat, DO NOT fall for this!

    Why would you wanna play out of 8's anyway
     
  14. I use an Ashdown ABM-Boxter 2x8 + horn cab with the ABM900 amp for most gigs. I just got the ABM-410H, so I think I will start using that. But the 2x8 cab handles lows quite impressively and it sounds really good, avoiding boominess and mud.

    i totally agree, but its just not loud enough

    now, if i had a team of pack mules id get like 10 of em for a 80x8...yeah...thats reasonable...

    seriously, great cab, but not enough volume to use by itself in my setting. 2 would probably but the mustard in a more standard metal setting, but even then id have my doubts about that in the style i tend to play.
