One of the best cabs that I've ever played through. I've played through a ton of different cabs, and none of them stand up to this monster. I play a lot of hardcore, metal, and straight up rock. This thing has great tone with the open back; cleans are nice and clear and the distortion with the V30's can get really, really heavy or light depending on your taste.
Overall Impression — 10
In no way am I over-exaggerating when I say that it really deserves the 10/10, and that I couldn't ask for more with it. I run a 1st series Peavey 5150 through it with Schecter guitars, and the tone I get is just amazing. I've played through ENGL, Mesa, Marshall, any cab you could think of and none of them compare to the overall quality of the Avatar series.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Avatar, no matter which cab model, makes incredibly durable and rugged cabs for a price you can't beat. I wouldn't think twice about gigging with this cab. It's easy to move around, it's not too heavy and bulky. The side handles make it very easy to carry. Sounds great, very durable, just an all around great cab.

Fully customizable cabs. Got mine with black tolex, silver piping, black/silver weave grille, open back, and Celestion V30's. You can get any speaker combo that you want from their selection. They don't make the cab until you order it from their factory. www.avatarspeakers.com
