    Comments about Markbass New York 122 700W 2x12 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    Have owned this cab for well over a year now. Used with a variety of heads in a variety of rooms. This cab is loud, efficient and has a small footprint (if speakers are aligned vertically). Only down side is it doesn't like to be placed up against a wall (maybe because of the rear porting?) Oh and if you have a big Amp it will hang over the sides of the cab if it is set up vertically. I had a Mesa D180 setup like that looked like an awesome sounding T.

    Has a nice even sound that lets your amp really shine through. It has sounded very good with whatever amp I have used and I have been using it mainly with a GK MB800. A great matchup. The MB NY122 handles the massive amount of GK Power with ease.

    Markbass makes great stuff but honestly this is one of maybe three Markbass cabs I really like. It's not cheap but I can't imagine a cab near the price that sounds this great at high or low volumes and is easy to move around. People are usuallu shocked when they see the size of my rig and more shocked when I usually don't run through the PA.

      Comments about Markbass New York 122 700W 2x12 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

      My experience with another Markbass product (the Marbass Combo II) sold me on the quality and reliability of their amps. I needed a really good-sounding light-weight cab for my rack-mounted bass rig, which includes a Fender TBP-1 tube preamp and a QSC PLX1804 power amp. The Markbass NY 122 cab easily handles the 800 watts the power amp provides at 4 ohms. This cab lives up to the description: "high output, punchy low-end and incredible definition in the highs and mids." And, very important to me, its light weight makes it easy to carry around.

            Comments about Markbass New York 122 700W 2x12 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

            I bought this cabinet as a top end cabinet for a bi-amp system, although you could uses this as a stand alone cabinet with right EQ setting and venue size. I have it paired up with a Markbass 104HF as a bottom cabinet. Each cabinet has an independent power amp with parametric EQ, so its easy to dial in what I like for my sound. This cabinet absolutely takes care of adding the low end punch and clarity. I used the system at a show a couple of weeks back and was blown away with the response I got.
