    Welcome to the board!

    I see this is your first post here so I won't be sarcastic:
    Questions like this don't make too much sense. There is no best cab, everyone has different preferences. And there are many good brands.
    Maybe you should read different threads about cabs and than ask more specific questions to help you find a cab which suits your needs and fits your budget.

    I like the Aguilar GS112. Very nice in terms of tone, efficiency, build quality and weight.

    Bergantino Audio 3x10 or 2x12 are my personal favorites. Epifani 4x10 is also pretty cool.

    i got one super cheap when a local music store was bought out by gc, and then i was introduced to one of the reps at samson by an endorser, and he told me they had a few more just lying around the shop, so i got those for less than $200.

    :D

    As it has been said, there is no such thing as a best when we get into something as subjective as tone.

    I will however tell you that my favorite bass cabs are the Eden XST series. Ive only played the 210 XST, but I imagine that 410 XST is just twice as great!

    Peace

    It's a tie between the Glockenklang Take Five Neodymium and the Tech Soundsystems ND 410 XT and the Tech Soundsystems ND 412 XT.
     
  19. Personally I prefer the SWR Henry 8x8, but that's just MHO.

  20. Well put.

    If there was one best cab, we'd all be using that, and only one company would be making them! Same goes for amps, basses...etc.
