    I'm narrowing down my choices for a 4-10. How do these cabs compare? Thanks again for the input.

    I like Aguilar a lot but I don't own one so I'll stick with a Bag End comment.

    I also don't own a Bag End 410. But I do have an Eden D410XLT which I like a lot but at 98 lbs is a huge PITA to drag to gigs.( My electric gigs are in small, medium and large bars/pubs playing reasonably loud Blues/R&B/Motown).

    After a long search for the smallest, lightest cabinet I could find without sacrificing tone, I settled on a Bag End S15D and later added a S12D for my upright. As it turned out the 15 and 12 together make a killer rig for the biggest electric rooms I play. The Bag Ends are much "flatter" the Aguilars or Edens (however not as flat as a Euphonics Audio for example.) The Aggies and Edens have their distinct coloration. I have found the flatter Bag End sound preferable to either Aggie or Eden.

    So, in answer to your question I would lean toward the Bag End 410 - even though I am not likely to use any 410 anymore. Pssst...wanna buy an Eden???
