Who makes the lightest weight 4x10 cabinet that still sounds amazing and is durable?
IMO the best lightish 410 would be a Genz Benz Uber 410-still available new on eBay, about 70 lbs BUT IME a fEarful or similar 15/6 is as loud and clearer/ more pleasing to my ear and around 55lbs.
Have a look at RevSound.
I have heard them, and I thought they sounded amazing.
Your location (unspecified) may make a big difference on what is available...
Further more a greenboy fEARless F115 is going to have all the qualities of the 15/6, and be lighter still. Mid 40# range.
GK NEO's are really light but very solid. Avatar makes a NEO 410 that not quite as light but a good cab for a great price.
SWR Golite isnt bad either
Scroll down. 345.00 + shipping for an Avatar B410 loaded with Eminence NEO's. 65 pounds.
Aren't their 4x10's over 100 pounds? I could be thinking of a different manufacturer.
I enjoyed MarkBass for years and they are cheap on the used market... I can't even give mine away. The MarkBass tone is not for everybody though, their cabs are not flat like their amps.
I do prefer my fEARful 1212/6 these days, the narrow dimensions make it so much easier to carry through a doorway. The cost is considerably higher though, especially when considering used. Assuming my time is worth nothing, my fEARful still costs more than a new MarkBass 410.
Hartke Hydrive is about 65lbs. The GK 410MBE is 58lbs
From their page http://revsound.net/Cabs_RS410Series.htm
RevSound's cabs were recently reviewed in (I know I am going to get this wrong...) BassGear magazine. There's a link to the e-Zine here somewhere - probably the 'Have you heard RevSound' thread.
I have no affiliation with RevSound and I'm not even a customer. I've heard their 410's and liked them - but I got a too-good-to-pass-up deal on a GK 412 Neo and did that. Otherwise I'd probably be a customer by now...
If you're in Europe, EBS Neo 410s are 25kg/55lbs. Well designed, but expensive, especially in the US.
Our 6x10" is lighter than most of those 4x10"s!
But that's missing the point - it's about the tone you want and how loud you need to go and the speaker configuration tells you little about all that...
I'm in Canada.
If I could get something in the 55 pound range that would be great. I will get 2 of them if need be.
I just thought of Traynor and see that they have a 410neo that is 59.1 pounds. A bit pricey though.
GK MBE-II NEO 410
The NEO speakers are made in house.
Stealth Audio is making a 4x8 with horn that will go toe to toe with most 4x10's and comes in at under 40 pounds.
Epifani UL DIST 410 clocks in at 58lbs per their site.
Eden Nemesis line, 410 is 24kg, 52lbs, can't go wrong if you can find one on the used market. Great sound, had mine since 2001 & amazing bang for the buck IMO, or else the GK MB410 mentioned above is as light as you're gonna get in anything new or used I'd say, don't know the sound though I've never been too crazy about GK cabs, yet love their heads n combos?! I've read Barefaced, Greenboy, Fearful etc are all amazing but never heard/played one so I'd check them out before buying too. Happy hunting!
Epifani UL1 410 4 ohm cab weighs in at 56lbs. Amazing cab!
The RS410 weighs 47lbs. There are quite a few video demos on the Revsound Facebook page wit players talking about the weights. Our RS810T doesn't even weigh 100. All my guitar cabinets weigh more than our bassist's cabs now.
