    So my friend uploaded some old pictures onto Facebook, and one in particular had me reminiscing about my Avatar B410 Neo that I got rid of last year after getting my Aguilar S410 (and later, the S210 too.) I lovvved that cabinet, just as much as my Aguilar. Just wanted to go "upscale" a bit.

    How many 410's can you do this with? Certainly not my S410.

    This cab is light light light, and sounds incredible. A few times I have thought about going back to Avatar...

    Now I have to use a collapsible hand cart for my gear.

    Yeah, I was pleasntly surprised when I first picked up my 212. I had heard about them being light, but I was so used to my bro's giant guitar rig that I was still expecting it to be quite a pain. Haven't tried picking it up with one hand yet, though. :smug:

    Joash, how do the two cabs compare in tone?
     
  5. Yup, I am always slinging mine with one hand. I can fit through narrow corridors without killing myself.

    I'm about to rig up some aluminum to the back to make mine a tiltback 410:D. I don't think I would try that with a 85lb cab.

    OKJ, you must be a big guy, cause in ratio to body size, that cab looks like my 210. I can carry my 212, but not with other gear too. More power to ya. OOPs! I forgot ,I am almost 49 yrs. old.

    Yeah, I really can't see myself replacing my Avatar NEO stuff any time soon. Unless maybe Dave starts building 8x10s, then maybe I'd sell the 4x10 and 2x12 to get one.

    after a few hours of ab'ing in my living room, which is about 25'x25' and about 25' high, i concluded that the cabs actually sound very similar. however, the avatar has a slightly deeper low end extension, but the aguilar S410 is a tad punchier, and has a "sweeter" high end.

    the difference to me was so negligible, i'd be happy with an avatar rig anyday.

    mlv, told ya i loved the cab. great to see you're enjoying the cab!
