These are the new 'lightweight CONSTRUCTION' ceramic loaded cabinets.

These prices are beyond good. I don't need a 4x10 but I want this one!

These appear to be made in their factory overseas then checked over and inspected at Genz USA.

For the price, something had to give, and I bet they are excellent quality.

From the look of things, I take it the drivers are ceramic jobbies? If so, then that's about average prices for non neo cabs is it not?

Well spotted Sherlock, that information was in the initial post. An excellent setup at the price from a good company, spot on for four strings. But then what do I know, I'm still searching for the holy grail in the form of a 1 x 10 Neo that drops to 30 Hz and fits in my pocket.... ;)

Crazy low prices. Check the new prices here:

£385 for a lightweight 4x10?!

I'd like a pair of the 1x12s.

Ceramics and cheap... and nothing wrong with that as such, but
the EBS classic line is NEO and almost as cheap-ish....
so much for the price hike in NEO..!!!

Not sure I like the idea of a EBS line going that cheap, IMO as I thought the whole point of it was excellence made in Sweden/Europe..??

I think, although not 100%, that the EBS Classic cabs are ceramic but engineered to be lighter, like these cabs.

As much as I'd like one of the 1x12s id rather have a high end stack or the Aguilar DB112s. Weight, when it comes to 1x12s, isnt a massive issue.

I think you are right about ceramics...and the website I quoted from was less that clear about this...but would agree from reading it more carefully that EBS classic line is not NEO.
