    I'm looking for some information on a 410 cabinet that is for sale near me. It is a Crate BX410E. I play a Yamaha BB425X and use a GK MBF500. Currently I use either a Seismic 210 or a 215. They sound ok, but I know that there is better. I understand that the cabinet is made by SLM. Beyond that, I don't know much. I did pm a TB member that used to have one, and he gave me some input, but I would like to get more info.

    Weight? Is it similar to an Ampeg 410 and which one? Is it durable? How does it sound with a 5 string?

    I had an 8x10 about 15 years ago. Sounded good, loud, and I hear they are a diamond in the rough.

    Maybe 80 lbs f or a 4x10

    I wouldn't go Crate. If you like how it sounds, fine - but I'd assume it's not worth overmuch.
