410 choices ... so many. Help?

I have narrowed down my search for a quality 410 cab. I am thinking neo, for weight reasons.

Berg AE410- cant get a new one. The model they currently offer is too heavy.
Epifani UL2-410 was sold on it, but am now concerned about upper midrange articulation, and them not being as good as the UL-1 series.
SWR Golight- MM and reg is a strong candidate as well. Will it hold up to the Epifani? Love the weight and price.
Markbass- cant get past the color.
I can try any locally. I have exhausted this board and the internet in general on this topic. Wondering if someone will chime in w new info/opinions?
Thanks

How bout just a good old Ampeg unported Classic? They're not particularly big or heavy.

I think the best 410 is a 215 (or 2x115). Just me. But, they can be cheaper, lighter, and often sound better, IMO.

+1 I'd always take 2x 15's over a traditional 410 cab.

Would love to hear some other opinions on this cab . . .

I used a hi drive with the band I toured with last year. Nice cab.

The difference between neo and ferrite doesn't allow for a 4x10 cab to be carried up a flight of stairs by one person. In a 2x10 go neo all the way, but the difference between 60 and 80 lbs in a 4x10 is not so critical.

BTW I saw Peavey has a removable caster kit (casters and socket mounts) for $25, great price, and they're the same casters I've seen at Princess Auto in Canada for $4.50 a piece. Got the same on my 4x10, I roll it through anything (gravel, wet grass, snow, etc) and whenever they get chewed up I buy a new set. I'll take fresh casters over neo drivers any day.

I have two Ampeg 410HE cabs and love the way they sound.

And a -1 to 2x15 cabs, yuck! 4x10's are more efficient, compact, and focus the sound where it's needed.
