    Hi guys,
    I am using a SVT3 and need to get a new cabinet for it. Any advice on relatively affordable 4x10?
    Currently looking at:
    Ampeg PF 410HLF
    Eden EX 410
    Gallien Krueger Neo 410 or MBE-II

    Definitely go used if you can. I couldn't find anything worth anything local and had to get new, so I talked to Dave over at Avatar. Solid cab for a pretty fair price.
  4. Avatar or Carvin. You can also go used and get a good deal on an Eden D410XLT.

    I'd go carvin. I love their cabs and will probably always stay with them

    Or see if you can find a Genz-Benz Uber 410. Great cab, although expensive. But since GB gear is now limited to what's in stock, you might be able to find a good deal. I recently saw the Uber 212 advertised for a killer price. Can't remember if it was Pro Audio Star or Andrew's Music.

    I have a pair of GK 410 NEO's that I absolutely love, but they don't seem to work as well with any other amp besides my GK 700rbII.

    What about the cabs i suggested? Selection and prices are a bit limiting here in Switzerland...

    Been using the same cabinet for 13 years, playing 3-6 nights a week. Use a Gk 1001RBll with it.

    Id go with the ampeg cab. If you've already got the SVT3, get the ampeg cab to match.

    I would not go with the SVT-410HLF. It has a big low end, but not a lot of mid content. Gets lost in the mix.

    This exactly.
    I've used mine since 98. Awesome/ indestructible. Fairly cheap. If you're looking for a 410......I highly recommend it.
  14. If you want affordable keep checking you're local classifieds. People don't like to ship big cabs & they sell for relatively cheap all the time. I had a Peavey 410TVX or some model like that years ago that was good, pretty sure they aren't uncommon. I see Gallien Krueger cabs pop up as well as Hartkes & Peavey's all the time in my area. You'll have to research which cabs are better out of what becomes available. I've seen whole setups head & cab, cabs listed for very little coin.

    I too have a SVT 3 Pro that I recently got through a trade. It came with a Fender Rumble 410 cab, which I was pretty skeptical about seeing how it was a rumble series cab. Boy was I wrong. Cab sounds really great for being a $300 (new) cab.
  16. I love the sound of Neo speakers, so I would go with the GK, but also look & listen to Fender Bassman Pro 410 Neo, and also MarkBass 410 Neo. They all sound really good and should be available to you all in a very close price range. Just pick the one you like best. :cool:

    What is your budget? You can get fairly awesome cabs used these days.

    Try the avatar B410. They sell them on Ebay and I got one brand new from the factory for under $250 with shipping. Best cab I have ever had!!

    Sounds like half of an 810- more mid focused than low end.

    I did not care for the SVT3Pro/410HLF pairing. Made the amp feel underpowered and muddy, which it really isn't. BUT if you play a 5 string and need that low end boom, it does it better than the HE. I'd just want more power in that case, like a 7 Pro.

    with a $700 budget, you have a vast amount of options, especially used...might even consider two 2x10's...
