    why do these cabs sell for $999 in Guitar Center and Musicians Friend, and then you look on ebay and there going for 350-450 bucks????

    I have this cab and it's a great cab, i bought it for 350 at a pawn shop :smug: Some of the classic 410s go for more than these! Does anyone know why they don't hold there resale value???? :scowl:

    Probably because they're "different" looking and you never see them on MTV (if MTV plays music videos any more).

    Plus, they're big and darn heavy for a 4x10...

    And yes, they do sound great!!!! I kind of view the PR410HLF as Ampeg's best kept secret.

    I had one and it sounded great, but was too heavy for me to lug around. I sold mine on ebay for around $600 last year.
