I just ordered an Accugroove whappo jr. cab and it will be in monday. I did a TON of research on these cabs and was impressed with what I read. No bad reviews (barring the 4/8 ohm issue). My question is, who out there in alembic land uses these cabs or at least has heard/played them and what do you think.
Thanks in advance,

Here's my Tri112L. Good stuff. The cabinet's frequency response works great with my Alembics. I wanted the extra 15" for a bit more bottom. I would've loved to get another Tri112L, but the pocket book said no.

One of my students uses an Accugroove with a single 12, powered by a Thunderfunk. It is positively one of the nicest rigs I have ever heard.

I am seriously considering the El Whappo cab as a replacement to all my other SWR cabs. I will wait anxiously for your report on the sound of your new cab. Do you have a low-B string bass? Curious to know how the low end is supported. The mids and top end should be fabulous. I detest the piezo tweeters in the SWR cabs. Too snotty for an Alembic.

After years of using Eden cabs I switched to Accugroove about a year ago. I use an El Whappo, Jr. on most gigs, but I also have 2 Tri 112L's that I use for rehearsals or when the gig is more than 2 flights of stairs up. Both cabs are amazing. The Tri 112L weighs 38 lbs, and it;s the best sounding cab I've ever heard that I can lift with one hand.
