Good Addition to a 15" cab, but wouldn't use by itself

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The cabinet seems well made. corners, handles, covering and speakers all look and feel good. Played a show at a large theatre with my 500watt head halfway up (very loud) and it survived. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I gave it a 3 here since i feel it could use more power handling. It doesn't handle alot of bass well, and as someone who likes a scooped bass tones, sometimes i feel like this thing is holding my rig back a little, that is to say i might be better just feeding the one 500watt 15" cab instead. Still, it has a unique sound from the aluminum speakers that adds some midrange punch to the mix, and again, despite my concerns, it hasn't blown despite being fed a potential 250watts from my amp Sound How is the tone? Different. The aluminum drivers have a unique sound, almost a bit plasticy. Like i said, i would never use it alone, but paired with something beefier it's a nice addition. General Your general opinion of this product. I'm not that experienced with bass cabs, but this seems to be a good 2x10. Try it out if you can, since the speakers have a unique tone. If i had to do it all over, i would probably get another 1x15 instead, as i like my low end beefy. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? see sound
