Hello, everybody. I'm about to re-cab and would like some quick opinions from other forum members. I need a light-weight 4-10, but I have also considered other configurations. There are no dealers nearby for the cabs I've been looking at, reading about, and going back to: [b:8yvyqt15]Epifani UL series Schroeder Light cabs [/b:8yvyqt15] Your input is valued. Thanks, Mark

If my drummer was as muscular as yours, I wouldn't mind the weight either. Enjoy the new rig!

Speaking of Gary at Guitar X, I purchased this rig from him. The Phil Jones M-500 head, 8T cab, and 16B cab. I played it at rehearsal and at a gig this week, it blows away my Ampeg SVT-AV head and 810 rig. Many thanks to members like TwoPort and others who freely shared advice about PJB. It was a sight unseen (sound unheard) major purchase, similar to buying a Dingwall, many good reviews, but nothing to get your hands on. I am a happy Dingwall, and now PJB 5 inch driver convert! Oh, yeah, I had to take the cheezy "Pirhana" applique' off the grill. If it had been bugs bunny or the tazmanian devil I would have left it on.

I guess I can't really tell you what to get. I use a Line 6 XT Live board fed into a Mackie 800W Power Amp and use a Yorkville 8x8. Sounds great, but I'll probably be adding a Glockenklang Bass Art Preamp soon. Looking for a more natural sound over the Line 6 board. Not to mention, I have a Special Edition Dingwall ABII 5 String from Guitar X coming to me very soon. It'll be awesome!

I got the Epifani UL2-410 and gigged with it. It's an awesome cabinet. It has a crazy amount of low-end response. So far, I'm very pleased. Mark

Yes, epifani cabs are ridiculously light, I picked up a 310 and I could have been convinced there are no woofers in it :D Great sounding too, good choice.

Wow! 57 lbs for 4 10s is quite impressive. I used to have a 2 x 10" cab that weighed more than that!

Thanks for all the input everyone. I had narrowed my choices to Mark Bass, EA, and Epifani. With some input from the guys at BassNW, I finally decided on the Epifani UL2-410. BTW, BassNW beat everybody's price- $10 less than Musician's Friend wanted for the cab, and that includes shipping. Mark

Acme Low B-4 might be slightly heavier than those, but truly kicks ass, which is great in Dingwall land! :) EG

I own EA stuff, but Markbass gets my vote for a 2x10" cab (the combo is even better)

I don't have a lot of experience with many different cabs. I have a 2x10 and a 2X12 Avatar cab and I like the sound They are light, well made and relatively inexpensive. They make a model called the B410 Neo. Check it out at: http://www.steamcomusic.com/avatar/index.html

Hi Mark Try a markbass 410HF or 410HR, or even a 210HF they are very light, extremely well made, have a great tone and a wider frequency response than most other units. Check out www.markbass.it for a list of endorsers and product. Recently I tried the 210HF and was blown away so I switched out my 410HR for the 210HF and find this is a great unit as it is small, light, but very capable so I now have 3 rigs; small (1x 210HF) medium (1x410HF) and large (1x210HF +1x410HF) :twisted:

I've read that Mark Wright at AccuGroove is putting out a very limited run of combos with several cab models and the new Synergy head. The Tri115L combo would be high on my list if I were looking for something like that. It would run all over most 410s and the Synergy is just going to be rackmounted so you can swap it out for a different 2U head if you want. Or you could just do the cab. Quite a sweet piece of work.

Check out the EA(Euphonic Audio) 4x10. I have a nL210 and a cxl112 with an iAmp800 with my P.A. It sounds fantastic. Besides Lee Sklar uses EA gear so it must be good "right".

[quote="FrankM":2alzi9em]I ended up with accugroove tri 210s and don't hate me, an old hartke 4X10. I still think the aluminum cones sound great, and yes they sound middy as well, but very different - warm, punchy and tight. You know the ole saying about picking amps and cabs--- well I'll just say-- its very personnal[/quote:2alzi9em] Hi, Frank. No, I don't hate you! I loved my Hartke XL and it served me well for years, but it was too heavy. Mark
