Anyone with firsthand experience!
Recently purchased a 410 Hydrive.
Have used 1 or 2 -410 vx series with
HA5500. 400 watts to single 8ohm.
Really was counting on the Hydrive to blow away the vx
but doesn't seam to have the the full range.
Ive never used the VX but I noticed EQing the HYdrive was way different then EQing my old paper cone Ampeg
I have a 410 Hydrive, and it is easily able to hold its own with a heavy hitting drummer and two guitards who are half-deaf. I set the amp dead flat for modern rock and numetal for floor shaking lows, and cut the low bass and attenuate the tweeter for classic rock tunes.
What amp are you running it with, and what part of the range is missing?
*** Edit: Crap, I'm really getting ADD. You already said you're running it with an HA5500. That should easily cut the mustard, I ran mine with a HA2500 until I picked up an LMII for easier portability. I found I did have to tweak the HA to get the sound I wanted, as it seems to be set for coloration when the EQ is set flat like so many other amplifier designs out there.
Don't hate me:-) but I'm playing with 10 piece 70 tribute ( disco)
The bass needs to be out front , every note pop and thump, I'm thinking on trying out a LH 1000 . Maybe the 400 watts is not matched properly with the Hydrive. I'm lacking low end . Seams like the vx has more low end. Guitards.... I like that
By the by , the only reason I tried the hydrive is I'm tired of lugging the vx , or 2 depending on venue.
The VX is a ported, paper-coned 4 X 10 rated @ 400 watts, the HyDrive is a sealed hybrid-driver enclosure rated @ ~1000 watts...you're gonna hear some differences in tonal character including perceived low-end extension. If the VX is more to your liking, you're in luck: I see them on CL on occasion locally. They're both great cabs.
