    Hey. Wondered if I may pick your brains please? Any info is appreciated.

    I am currently using the ABM 810. It’s a great sounding cab; but it’s become a hassle to shift around though! So instead, I’m thinking of downsizing to the ABM 410.

    I find myself in two minds about the 410 after hearing that it features a horn though; I’ve heard that there is a difference between sealed and ported cabs. I’ve come to love the tight punch I get from my 810, so I don’t really want to venture away from that.

    If I set the ‘Horn control switch’ to ‘off’ on the 410 (see attached pic), will I get the same effect as the sealed cab (810) sound that features no horn? Obviously, I won’t get the same amount of volume, but will the tone be there?

    Kind regards. Greg.
