    Looks good, when will this be available? What is the power handling? Looking at using an MB200 at hopefully 4 ohms for small restaurant gigs where there is a nasty carry in. Do you have any more pics?

    Yes it's available now. 4 or 8 ohms. Around 150 watts power handling. 3 weeks lead time. I'll try to get more pics up.

    Also---
    Some guys were asking to compare the 16 to my Crazy 8 speaker. The 16 literally goes about 20hz lower. About the same volume as a Wizzy 10 or Crazy 8 but more power and clarity in the low end.

    I could get a Crazy8 built here in the uk, that would save the import cost etc, is the MA16 that much better that i could justify the extra cost? When you say the MA16 has more power and clarity, are you saying it will go louder before farting out, or just have a deeper tone? Can you tell i'm agonizing over this!

    The MAS16 and Crazy 8 go about the same volume before fartout. But---the envelope (start of the note and decay) are much more accurate with the 16 so you'll likely play the cab at a lower volume to reach the same acoustic function. It goes deeper and sounds much more natural. I just had a customer replace two Crazy 8's with 16's. He much prefers them.

    Thanks Mike, I've gone for a Crazy8 by British builder Tricky Audio, this will save the import duty and taxes etc. I'd still love to try a mas16, but the cost would be quite substantial to import to the UK.
    All the best
