    Just wondering what the opinion on these things are. I'm in the market for a couple of 2x12 cabs and came across the Forte stuff. Looks cool, but you can't hear pictures! LOL!

    I'm waiting on a Forte 2x12. The reviews I've read have been great. Hopefully I'll have something to add soon.

    Same here, except waiting on a 1x12 lightweight 3D. Really anxious to hear how it sounds with my Fuchs ODS

    Hands down, best sounding/constructed/looking cabinet I have ever played.

    The light version has piqued my interest. I would be interested in your opinion and details when you get it.

    I have the 2x12 Forte with the closed bottom. Very high quality build. Came in probably the best packed shipping boxes I've ever seen.

    I have an Emi CRex in the ported top and an Emi Wizard in the closed bottom. Deep rich sound - lots of thump. I'm going to order 2 more 1x12 3D's soon. I'm a big fan.

    I have two of Dave's cabs. A 1x12 3D and a 2x12 S/V that I had him build just a bit over-sized.
    Mine aren't the "light-weight" versions, but both cabs are of excellent construction and sound huge.
    I've used both of these at the club where I gig in a house band and I've never had any complaints on not being heard! :aok for Forte Cabs!
