markbass ta503 head
livesound 8x10

but usually a ported 1x12" (running a car subwoofer) for practise, the 8x10's pretty lethal with the markbass :twisted:

and some effects, always changing tho...

Cheehoo.

I just bought a livesound 8x10 myself, and its frikin awesome. :D Sounds epic..can go ultra loud (as you'd expect from a beast like that), and the tone is perfect. Too bad I dont have a mint as bass, but it makes such a difference compared to what i was running before.

Works sweet as with my GK 700RB - was really easy to EQ to suit.

Now all i need is a new car so I dont have to destroy by back every time I have a gig or practice... :roll:

I think an 8x10 is less hassle to move than two 4x10s. Especially the livesound because they are fairly light for an 8x10 (60kg).

I guess I just prefer to take one cab to a show, be it my 4x10 or 8x10.

I was actually going to buy another 4x10...it was basically just a stoke of luck that we played a gig last weekend, and the backline was provided, and there was a big sexy 8x10 for a fraction of the cost I'd seen them on trade me for (second hand, but seriously, you wouldnt be able to tell).

Would you buy a 4x10 if you could get an 8x10 for the same price?? :shock: ....hmmmm i think not :D

Managed to get her for an even sweeter price as the gig we played was sponsored by musicworks, and we've been dealing with those guys a bit lately (my singer helps out at the gigs), so i got a pretty sweet deal. Mean mean.

I'd definitely disagree with that, both my 4x10's have wheels, and I just push one cab with the other....with the head on top of the cab I'm pushing. Fling a couple basses over the shoulder and can load in in one trip. Easy as heck to load in and out of the wagon too, no folding down of seats or anything!

I'm with Dan on this one.
I can easily do both my cabs in two trips from the car by my self. Up stairs or whatever . I would imagine an eight 10 would be quite a wrestle to do on your own .

yeah up stairs an 8x10 is a bit of a pain, but they load sooooo much easier into a stationwagon.

i found my 8x10 far easier to wrangle than my old ampeg 4x10 (hlf, big sucker). still wouldn't mind the uber-light version from markbass, tho i like the lived-in look and sound of my cabinet.

For a VERY brief period I had two cabs (Ampeg 4x10 and 1x15). Took them both to a few shows and found it more hassle than taking my 8x10.

My Ampeg 4x10 is pretty heavy at nearly 45kg. I can lift it myself but ideally on stairs I would have someone help me. The 8x10 isn't that much heavier, plus I find moving it with two people easier than the 4x10 because you aren't kicking your legs against it. Each to their own, but I will take an 8x10 over two 4x10s.

What I would really like is one of those Berg NV610 cabs. The tone and balls of an Ampeg 8x10 with a slightly smaller size and the weight of a 4x10.

I guess I have the advantage of being a big bugger and being able to pretty much carry a 4x10 in one hand :P I've owned both 4x and 8x, and find the two 4x10's to be a dream.

Mind you, I'd still grab another 8x10 if the right one popped up!

Yes I can see an 8x10" is easier if you have someone helping you.... but if you're by yourself then 2 4x10's is def better... esspecially if you're a little 70kg weed like me! ;-)
I personally hate vans and MPV's so would only ever buy what fits in my sedan or hatch.... actually I think a 8x10" would fit in my hatchback but I wouldn't have a hope of getting it in there without help.
