This cab is suprisingly loud; tight, punchy and deep with a real good mid range tone. It is not a growler but is absolutely perfect for dual amping bassists who want to compliment a fuzzed out tone with some house shaking low end that punches through the mix. It would also be good as a stand alone cab for rock, country and funk. You aren't going to get that rich full sound of an ampeg 8x10 or 6x10 but you will get a deeper and punchier sound than those cabs. This cab has more boom than any 4x10, 6x10 or 8x10 I've played and more boom than my road ready mesa 2x15. Only my 1x18 surpasses this cab in boom but the mesa 2x10 blows away my 1x18 in punch and note clarity. This cab will exceed your expectations, it is seriously loud and deep and I wouldn't think anyone would have a problem cutting through the mix with this cab.
