  1. Simple here.

    Whats the best speaker cabinet youve ever heard?

    For me its been two, both Bergantinos. An HT322 and an NV610.

    +1 on the HT322. In fact, I'd gladly trade my Schroeder 21012 for the Bergie.

    Phil Jones suitcase with extension (8X5).....but although the tone killed, the volume wasn't there for my needs and I don't have roadies for the wall of 5s I'd need live.

    Accugroove Whappo Jr., although the Bergantino NV-610 was nice, it was not what I wanted then.

    I think Mesa powerhouse stuff is great. I also like Aguilar.

    Best I've played: Eden 410XLT.

    I might throw a couple of Beyma 12's in my BL212, and I think that will become the best ever.

    The last word has yet to be spoken I'm sure ... but up until now, (for me anyway ) hands down it's the Euphonic Audio EA VL 208

    View attachment 65939

    :) ... With a box only "16" X "17" X "14.5" the sound is HUGE Loud, and very accurate.

    Bergantino HT322 but was too heavy. For me it is the new Bergantino HS210. That cab has a nice woody punch to it.

    Well.... I suppose my favorite tone was my Acoustic 360.

    The Ampeg SVT 8x10 is also fairly formidable.

    These days, I vascillate between my Tech 2x12's and an NV-610.

    Mostly, though, I just drag the Nemesis NC-410 into the gigs and call it good enough.

    IMO, the result is truly due to the whole signal chain, including musician, bass, amp, and cab(s). Isolating any one of them is a little out of context.

    If you are asking which would fit your sonic situation, then my advice is to first go out and buy a Kart-a-Bag folding hand truck so that weight is not an issue, and then go play a bunch of cabs, and decide which you like. Your answer will depend a lot on what tone you are looking for and how much volume you need. These days, there are many answers.
  13. another vote for the NV610 Berg.

    The Genz Benz Neox212t cab really is the best sound I've ever heard. Second best is a Bergantino stack of two single 12 cabs that I played through a few times ... can't recall the models, but one had a tweet and one didn't.

    The Neox212t really is an extraordinary cab.

    I have not heard a cabinet that I like more then my early 70's Ampeg SVT. After 28 years I got to old and it got to heavy to move. I gave to a young bassplayer I met at the Stone Pony. After hearing his band play, I asked if could have any bass cab what would it be. He said an SVT 8x10. I told him if he would come over and pick it up he could have very old and road weary SVT cab.
    You would have thought he just met Santa Claus.
