I'm in the Midwest, and I was hoping to get out and play a round or two of golf this weekend, but the golf gods did not cooperate. So, instead I spent a good chunk of the weekend reading just about every thread related to the Aguilar TH 500, Genz Benz Streamliners, etc, as well as mini stacks (2x112). Like many older players, I've grown tired of schlepping around 100+ pound rigs. I currently have a Hartke stack (HA3500/410XL/115XL), and an Ampeg rig (SVT-CL/610HLF). Given that I primary play P-basses, and want a relatively "vintage" tone, I decided to grab a new Tone Hammer 500 on Amazon using the 15% discount link that was floating around. (Thanks for the link, guys!) I figured I had to start with something, and if the TH500 doesn't pan out, I can flip it easily. Now, I'm ready to pick up a pair of 1x12 cabinets, but frankly, after reading all the comments and reviews, my brain hurts! I want something small and lightweight, but it doesn't have to be ultra-lightweight. Thus, after poring over hundreds of pages of TB postings this weekend, I think I've narrowed it down to the following: High-end: - Bergatino HT112ER or HD112 - Aguilar DB112/DB112NT or GS112 - Baer ML112 Best Bang for the buck: - GK Neo 112-II - Hartke HyDrive HX112 Wildcards: - Genz Benz Focus FCS-112T (Used pair for $499) - Traynor TC112 - Bergatino HT112/EX112 (Used pair for ~$800) - Mesa Powerhouse Basically, I'm a gearhead. Deep down, I know I should simply "Splurge for the Bergs" (Hey, I should trademark that catchphrase!), but part of me cringes to think about spending $600+ for a single 12" speaker when one can pick up a 8x10 cabinet for a few dollars more. Yeah, I understand the uber-engineering that goes into these super-minis. (Funny, I probably wouldn't have a problem dropping a grand for a high-end subwoofer with a single 12. 'Go figure.) The Aguilar cabs look great, and are probably the best match for the TH500, but I'm a little put off by the depth of the cabinets (18"+). My practice area doesn't have a lot of room, so it would be a bit difficult to place the deep cabinet at least 5" from the wall. The GK and Hartke are probably the best value in the bunch. I can probably pick up a used pair for the cost of a single Berg, Aguilar, or Baer. Any thoughts on the wildcard list? I threw in the GB Focus because I can get a used pair fairly cheaply. I expect that I would probably be a bit disappointed in the low end compared to the Bergs. Anyone have experience with the smaller Focus cabs? I left many cabs off the list because I didn't see a distinct sound or value advantage over the BAB's (i.e. Markbass NY 121P, Mesa Powerhouse 1x12). I also ruled out the AudioKinesis Thunderchild TC112, and the fEARful 112/6, mainly due to the cost of a pair, and the larger size. Thanks in advance!
