    Which one would toy choose and why to get with an SVT-4PRO?
  2. Depends if you need the size of an 810 or not, the 810 is sealed, the 410 is ported, kinda like compairing apples and oranges . . .

    What size of venue do you play, what do you have to compete against?

    Ive played both the 810 and the 410 and there both pretty nice cabs, like mohawk said do you really need a 810? quite a problem for transport sometimes.

    I am playing in 600+ auditorium. Competing against Marshall TSL 100. I want a cab that I can use for everything. Don't know what the future holds but if i had to play in very large venue with two loud guitar players, I want to know my rig would compete.

    But transporting problem aside which is tighter sounding, which one would you choose?
  6. I would choose the 810e, but, thats because i use an SVTII all tube head, and because its just the right sound for punk, i think you'll get mixed responses of which sounds tighter tho
  7. also, you didnt say if you had your rig going to the PA, or what cabs the guitarist has, 100watt isnt that much into a 1x12 speaker :p , but its a fair bit louder if its a full 2x4x12 stack

    Tighter? To my ears the 410 in much tighter.

    I hear the oppisite. The 410hlf is a ported cab...the 810e is a sealed cab. Sealed =punch, (tightness) ported have extened low end..I call it "boominess"...however it is a rich warm tone.

    I owned/own both bottoms in question the original question...go for the 810.
  11. like i said, he's gonna get mixed responses on which is tighter sounding
