    I am looking into this cab http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=bass/search/detail/base_pid/601034/

    And this one
    http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=bass/search/detail/base_pid/481741/

    The reviews sound very good for the Ampeg, but there are none for the Aguilar on Musicians friend. How would you guy compare both of these? They are both in my price range and I am considering buying one of these two. I am looking into getting either an Ampeg SVT450H 450W Classic Series Head, or a Peavey Max 700 Bass Head to power these cabs.

    I am in Canada and Musicians Friend only ships certain products here. These are two of them that I am interested in.

    it really depends on what kinda sound you are going for. Do they ship the 410HLF to you? I had one of those for a very long time and i absolutly loved it. It shook more earth than any other 410 that i have played on.

    Yes they do ship the Ampeg to Canada. I am leaning more towards this rig I think. I want to add a 15" speaker in the future. If I get the 4ohm Ampeg SVT 4x10 HE, then add a 4ohm Ampeg SVT115 will I have any trouble powering these two cabs with the Ampeg SVT450H 450W Classic Series Head since the two 4ohm cabs combined will be 2ohm?

    Go to Aguilars' website they have Bass PLayers' review on the S-series cabs (210,410 and 810). I think they're very helpful.

    Take care....
