  5. If going by specs alone, it seems that the Epifani and Eden cabs would be better than the Bergantino (which is winning by a large margin at this point)..Interesting..
  6. I was just thinking that when I looked at the specs of the Genz cab. The Berg doesn't have the most impressive specs but I guess it's one of those don't judge a book by it's cover' moments aye.

    i voted for the swr. only because it's the only one i've played through other than the ampeg, and i like the swr better
  8. the berg and the eden/epifani are completely diferent sounds though, so it's not really a good comparison...

    I can't vote, having never heard almost all of them. I have heard the Ampeg, results: unimpressed :(. I've got a Bergantino NV215. If their 610 is like it, the Berg should win hands down!

    I've only played 2 of those, the Ampeg and the Genz Benz. I think my sig says which one I like best out of those 2.
  11. I've personally played thru 5 of them (Ampeg, Eden, Epifani, Genz Benz and Mesa/Boogie)..My favorite was the Eden (which is the one I finally purchased)..The least impressive was the Ampeg. The local music stores in my area do not carry/stock Bergantino, which is a shame. The one thing that impresses me the most about the Eden is the speaker efficiency @ 107dB..The best in the industry I believe. The most negative thing about it is the weight @ 130 lbs.

    I stopped caring about cabinet specifications after my first gig with the NV610.

    There are some good cabs on that list, but there's more to it than numbers on a screen.

    I must be fair... and vote for the Ampeg 610 cuz its the only one I've owned. Though, I'll say with 10 minutes of wanking, the Mark Bass 610 was a serious pant-shaker. Should be included in this poll.

    Can someone elaborate on this comment?

    >>the berg and the eden/epifani are completely diferent >>sounds though, so it's not really a good comparison...
  15. I've never played the berg, but the Eden owns the Ampeg and the SWR for sure.

    Genz-Benz GB610T-XB2 all the way! But then i'm highly biased.

    There is a Bergantino Love on this thread that will not be overcome. Even if there was a 70LB 610 that sounded the same and cost less.

    If the Berg were more widely distributed (still waiting for a dealer here), I bet it would have gotten 75% of the vote.
  19. I own the Epifani UL610, but have not played through the Bergantino
    NV610, so take my explanation with a grain of salt.
    From what I understand, the NV610 "New Vintage 610" is a take on the old school Ampeg sealed 810 cabinets, but with more focus, clarity, and volume.... (and mids to spare, but no tweeter.)
    The Epifani UL610 does something completely different. This is a modern hi-fi speaker cabinet with tons of lows and highs (and a wonderful tweeter.) The mids are there, just different, not the Rock N Roll mids of cut and doom, buth the UL can be eq'ed similarly, but from what I understand, not the same.
    I hope this helps, and maybe someone who has experience with both will come along and add their 2 bits.
