^That's impressive! I wonder if Ford designed it to fit an 8x10. :D
Believe it or not i can fit 2 basses, my Mesa Boogie Rig (400+ head, 1516 cab) and my Ampeg Rig (SVT3Pro, 810e) into it 8| With the back seats folded down, there's heaps of space to keep any bass player happy :)

When loading the car, i like having the tetris music playing on my phone :rolf:

We used to have a Suzuki swift 5 door hatch. I could fit 2 upright basses in the car. Small hatchbacks are awesome. :)

Same here with a Honda Jazz, not lying when they call them magic seats. Was much better when I didn't use the back seats to flip them down easily as they were always clear, an easy lift in through the boot for my dodgy back too with the little neoprene mat that allows easy sliding in and out with no bumper/moulding damage.

Maybe this thread should read :-
Which small wagon/ hatch can fit the most gear.
I gotta a half decent wagon - but am super impressed with what some of you guys fit into those smaller cars - nice.

Like this?


This was a pack for the 2011 Melbourne GTG. 7 solid body basses, 1 EUB, 1 acoustic, a 212 cab, stands, 2 amps I think. Subaru Wagon.

I don't recollect what happened to that pelican box. I went looking for it a little while back to take some stuff to QLD and couldn't find it. It might of gone to work with me and been borrowed by one of my techs.

I don't mind if it gets derailed a bit.

Forester seems to have a much more practical internal space than a lot of the wagons these days. All the curves and bumps on the outside cut down a lot on the internal space.

^^ Yep we have a forester and a VE wagon. Loads more room in the Subaru.

I've got a NV610 and a NV115. Keen to pick up another 15 for the modular comparison.

It seems each time I've got the money for a new 15 some expense pops up and I need to prioritise. New timing chain needed for the wagon this time :rolleyes

That's interesting. I ended up getting a VF SS Wagon last year and parting ways with my VY wagon. I'd done the research, I knew how much less capacity the new wagons had. My Fender 610 could fit on it's side across the back of the back seat in my VY, in the VF I am putting the seats down to get it in.

Fender Neo 610 is 35kg
According to Fender website it's actually 43kg.

Having said that, mine definitely doesn't feel that heavy. I can lift it with one hand (not that I choose that method of loading it into a venue or anything).

For me this is the perfect bass cab - heaps of bottom end clarity, adjustable tweeter, skid rails, wheels, super light and fantastic tone.

Hey everyone, I’ve only just seen this thread :lol: some great input here and love the talk about what can be fit in the back of our cars. That could definitely become it’s own “post your” thread!

The barefaced looks awesome and is on the list. It’s just a lot of $ to get it over here so trying to explore other options before I follow through with that.

Yes the fender comes in heavier on their specs but good to know it seems lighter in the flesh. Hopefully a used one in Brisbane comes up that I can actually have a go at moving around.

Also with NAMM on right now, I was hopeful another manufacturer may come out with something new! I love my berg CN210....imagine a neo NV610....! HDN610? :drool:

43kg is the shipping weight, which includes the heavy duty double lined carton, the packing, the warranty card and the user manual. I put my cab on a scale - and it's 35kg

This is the latest on my GAS list. Same depth and width as my HD212, and extra 5cm taller, which is a good thing being closer to the ear. Only 29kg too, so even easier to get into the back of the hatchback. Haven't yet experienced a sealed cab. If only I needed that much power.
