As a gear nut myself, I often switched gear whenever I heard promising news about new equipment, whether it offered a more compact size, or more defined sound, etc. I was always searching for that special something out there that I'd be able to enjoy for a very long time, but I did not find anything that really satisfied my needs, and gave me the volume, depth and clarity I needed and wanted in a compact cabinet. Now, there are certainly a lot of very nice bass cabinets out on the market today, but I still feel that there is room for improvement. Wouldn't it be great to make one trip to the stage, set up within 5 minutes and be ready to play? I wanted to achieve something compact, yet loud enough for use in larger venues that could still be carried in one trip for easy setup. I wanted to hear myself on stage, and I wanted my band members to hear what I play. The better you hear each other on stage the better the band will sound to the audience.
