    Fender Super Six Reverb is the biggest combo I've evern seen or played thru. VERY LOUD and VERY HEAVY.

    heaviest? Peavey 5150 2x12. Have your house's foundation checked before buying one of those amps.

    I've got a Mesa Boogie Electra Dyne 1x12 that is REDICULOUS to haul around. It weighs a metric ton - however it is AWESOME sound wise. It can also get SOOOOOOOO loud....like, way too loud.

    The sound is excellent and this is WITHOUT any sort of break in time. I've played maybe 4 hours on it, at best. I got it for a great deal, which is why I got it in the first place. I always a Boogie and I was able to get into that family of amps for less than a new Hot Rod Deluxe (and I got the amp BRAND NEW when Guitar Center was stopping their dealers agreement with Mesa)

    The biggest combo in current production is the Marshall Bluesbreaker RI.

    They've got one used at my local GC - it IS huge.

    Biggest 2x12 I've seen yet.....but that Fender Rvb Spr 6 wins em all I think.

    Man, what a crazy big amp!

    I used to occasionally move a Music Man 410 around. I laugh at the idea today. I want to say it was around 75 pounds -- but felt like 175.

    I had a peavey 5150 and a dual and I think the dual was a little bit heavier than the 5150. I know it was louder. I think it was something like a 130 watt amp.

    My Tremoverb 2x12 is bigger /heavier than the 5150 2/12 and much heavier than 75 lbs.. Probably almost 100.. BUT it's no problem carrying /moving as it has great casters, and great handles , and I'm big! Haha.. although I'm getting up there in age, it's no problem moving it. I haven't seen a few mentioned on this thread so far, but it's definitely heavier than any 4x10 super reverb or music man! :) Eric

    I put a pair of JBL D130s in a Pro Reverb-might as well have nailed it to the floor! That said, the Super 6 is the biggest bad boy ever built...

    The Mesa Roadster and Road King 2x12s are around 105lbs. Not the biggest out there, but make sure you use the restroom BEFORE trying to lift one by yourself.
