The cabinet is sturdy, but not too heavy. The built-in handles are excellent. They're large, which makes them comfortable. The grill is robust. It's not just for decoration. It will most certainly prevent damage to the speakers. The covering is surprising thick. It will hold up to heavy use well. The corners are all capped with a strong plastic composite. This is a rock solid cabinet. The dual, 10-inch hybrid speakers produce very crisp tones across a wide range of frequencies. They never exhibit excess excursion and sing high and low pitches simultaneously, without any distortion. Volume response is even across the octaves. I'm impressed. I didn't know people still made such high quality products. Clearly, Hartke knows what they're doing.
