$364.00 USD delivered to my door! How can you beat that? You can't. I would definitely buy another. The only way I can think of this cab being better is if I could have gotten it back in the Seventies. Favorite aspect? It sounds killer. Worst aspect? At 95lbs. it's a ballbuster for an old fart like me. What else would I like people to know? Buy it, if you ain't happy, I'll buy it from you.

Where Obtained: Avatar Speakers
The American made Eminence Kappa PRO tens have huge 80 oz. magnets, large 3 inch voice coils, and a lightweight die cast aluminum basket for extra rigidity. Each Kappa PRO ten inch speaker is rated at 500 watts RMS. The Foster high frequency compression horn tweeter is filtered with a smooth sounding 6dB per octave slope mylar capacitor crossover and has an adjustable tweeter volume control on the back input panel. The cabinet is covered in black carpet, has protective corners, large recessed steel bar handles, full face steel diamond pattern expanded metal grill, front slot port, steel input panel with one Speakon connector and dual 1/4 inch in/out jacks. All three jacks on the back panel are wired together in parallel so you can go in or out of any of them for maximum flexibility when connecting this cab to amps or to other speaker cabs. This cab is 4ohm, and weighs 95lbs.
First, let me say that the alleged tweeter noise referred to in other reviews is not an issue for me. This cabinet sounds fantastic. Now, I used to play through an SWR stack, a Workingman's 4x10 and a Big Ben 1x18. I use the Avatar 4x10 with their B115H, and this current stack is everything the SWR was for 60% of the cost. Granted, I'm pushing both of these cabs with 400watts a piece from a Crown stereo power amp, as opposed to a Workingman's 4004 amp on the SWR stack. That being said, this is still The TIOIT!
What? Ease of use? Plug it in and play.
I'll plagiarize a previous review by saying "...it looks like I could kick it down the basement steps, plug it in and play...." Besides that, how am I ever going to blow a cab rated at 2,000watts without losing my hearing?
