I am assuming they are both 8 Ohm cabs and you are running both on their own out put? If so then you are really only looking at ~500 watts of power. On top of that the 210 is going to hold your 410 back.
A few things that may help. First of all make sure your gain is up enough. Push it up until you are seeing the clip light flash red then back it down just a tad. Dont let your lows go over noon. Bump up your low mids for punch. Bump up your high mids for more sonic space in the mix.
You have an incredibly powerful amp, its not your limiting factor.
