    I've found a good deal on a Fender Pro 800 and a Genz Benz XB610 (from different sellers) and was hoping someone would have some insight/opinions as to this pairing. I have an idea of how the head sounds but have never heard the XB610. I really want a 610 and the one I'm looking at is $600. I also found out about an actual music store dedicated to bass outside of Sacramento and they're a Bergantino dealer. I don't know if I'll be able to resist myself.

    600 for a GB 6x10 sounds like a great deal.

    The Genz will sound great with any amp!

    seeing some good deals on large cabs now with all the great small cabs being offered out there. Always wanted a 610 either Eden, GB or Epifani; now I really don't have the need for one.

    I actually did buy a new NV610 a couple years ago. WOW, I may be the only one but that cab did not work for me. I took it back and got the NV215 instead. It must be me cuz sold that cab a few months later to a very lucky San Antonio TBer; he got a great deal, arrrgh. Hope he's still enjoying that.

    So yeah, I better just wait til my next life to consider a 610 cab. It'll be the first cab I buy; if they even exist then. :p
  5. I have the 610 XB2. SLAMS. Great response across the entire bandwidth, solid tight bass response. Doesnt seem to have that low-mid hump many cabs have, and it'll take lots of wattage before the cones start having a hard time keeping up. This is a great cab, underrated if not under appreciated. Its 44" tall and weighs 135lbs, so it is a lot of cab. Physically much larger than some 610's on the market, like Mesa or SWR

    I picked mine up for $450 3 years ago or so. Im starting to think I did pretty good

    Nice. I like that it's tall. Genz Benz has a great rep. I've read far more positives and I can't recall even reading a negative about they're cabs.
