    I'm doing a survey to find out who makes a 4-ohm 410. Top of my current list are two cabs not out yet: GK CX410-4 and Aguilar SL410x. Feel free to comment on those and also add to the list, but it has to be 4-Ohm. Thanks.

    There are some Genz cabs out there that came in 4ohms.
  5. SWR made a 4 ohm version of the Goliath.

    The Genz Benz Uber 410 came in 4 ohm. The Berg HD410 also (I see that one is already mentioned).
    I have an old Genz XB3 that's 4 ohm too.

    The Fender Rumble V2 410 is 4ohms. You can usually find one (used) for under 200 bucks. 500 watts continuous, 1000 watts max.

    What company doesn't have a 4-ohm 4x10 option? I think that would be a much shorter list.

    Have a look around. you'd be surprised. Fender, for example, does not offer a NEW
    4-ohm 410.

    Just about EVERYONE makes a 4 ohm 410 cab.

    Not to start an argument but "just about everyone" doesn't mean everybody.

    So, adding to the list of who currently doesn't make a 4-ohm 4x10:

    Fender (which I am shocked by)

    Add Hartke to the list. And Ampeg Neo. Ampeg does make a 4 ohm, but not in the Pro Neo series - that's 8 ohm.

    There's no doubt that a lot do make 4 ohm cabs, but they're usually the heavy old-school types. I just looked up an Eden 4 ohm 410 that weighed a hundred lbs. and most 4 ohm cabs seem like this.

    Epifani has me interested because it's dual ohmage, but it's more than I hope to spend.

    I've had several 410s over the years; GK Neo was extra boomy and 8 ohms; Ashdown ABM, which weighed a ton. Peavey is, well, Peavey.
    Avatar makes nice stuff, I had a 112 of theirs, but the fact that I can't return it queers the deal for me.
    Lightweight and 4 ohm is what got me onto GK CX410 in the first place. The Aguilars look nice, but neither of the aforementioned have hit the streets.

    I'm done with heavy and boomy; very deep and articulate is what I'm after.. I want something light but with a load of *ass*, as my drummer puts it.

    I was hoping to get some leads on other things that are more modern in construction, but really solid in sound.

    If you aren't necessarily locked into the 410 format, look into what Acme is doing these days (I think they discontinued their 410 but they are doing 212s). Also greenboy's fEARful and Fearless lines, and above all check in with Mike Arnopol - his cabs probably have the most articulate bottom ends out there, and some of them go extremely deep. For the highest SPL-to-weight ratios that I'm aware of, along with very well thought-out designs, check out Barefaced.

    I wouldn't call it very deep but I would call it articulate, Markbass 104. They have a low mid bump that will make you either hate it or love it though.

    I had forgotten about the fearful stuff, and no I' not locked into 410. But on Acme - I had one a long time ago when there was hype about the B-1, and i was very disappointed in the efficiency of the cab. Looking at the specs of the 212 - 94dB efficiency - I see nothing has changed. I'd need to push 1000 watts into it just to make is audible to my band, and it still wouldn't be loud. No thanks. the barefaced and feraful are other animals, though, and I need to look into those.
