    I´ve heard great things about the ABM410 with the new blueline speakers. It´s supposed to be much better than Ampegs SVT410 that I think sounds good but is a little thin in the lower frequencies. I haven´t tried it yet though.
    Is it good? Has anyone A/B:ed it with other speakers (410:s).
    I´m also interested in opinions on their 210 and 115.
    Thanks/ Jocke

    here's my experience - played the ashdown 500W head (the one with the sliders between the knobs in the eq - light blue) with the higher end 4x10 (not the mag, but the other one). it kicked ass. i can't remember how much it would've cost, though. it sounded really warm, good response from the low B, although if really thumped at higher volumes it crapped out a little. just a killer tone. kinda vintage. yeah, similar to the ampeg svt. maybe not as phat. a little tighter. don't know anything about the blue line speakers though.
