This cabinet is pushed to its limits 200 gigs a year and has never let me down. It is not too big and not too small. Believe it or not, it is lighter than it looks. It is only a few lbs heavier than a 4X10. The special designed speakers used in this cab are lighter than average and handle more. Speakers do get fatigued and should be replaced every 1000hrs. However, I have 2400hrs on these puppies and haven't blown one yet and they still sound good. Plus, I'm afraid to find out what they cost to replace. The sound is amazingly focused and punchy while still obtaining massive bottom. The Foster horn will pierce a hole in your head when turned up so use it sparingly. I get enough highs out of the 10's for me without the horn. I've tried them all and the only 6X10 that comes close is the Genz Benz 6X10 XB. It is a refrigerator style dolly cabinet with rear and side handles so it also pretty portable for its size. I can handle it myself but I'm a fairly big guy. If not, I recommend you get the drummer to help you since most guitar players are whimpy!!
