    I'm currently running an Avatar 410 Neo cabinet from my SWR Mo Bass & Line 6 XT Pro. A variety of SDGR SR-500's through 800's, 4 and 5 string. And a Brian Moore I5.

    My style is metal funk, Mudvayne sound is what im trying to get.

    I cant seem to dial in the Avatar to produce the grumble I want, it seems very tinny to me. Even though its light, it plays light if you know what I mean.

    I have a chance to get a like new PR-410 for 225 delivered. I plan on adding an 18 or 15 to either of the 410 cabs in the near future. I know the Ampeg is heavy as 2 of the Avatar, but I dont do a lot of moving, I mostly just love to annoy my neighborhood.

    What recommendations do you guys with experience have to help me get the sound I need. Will the Ampeg pick up where the Avatar seems to leave off? Is it worth the 225?

    I don't have a recommendation specifically, but I was just thinking "Man, remember 10 years ago on TB when Avatar Cabinets were on par with SX Basses as far as cult status?" I had an Avatar 4x10, it was beautiful, but like you, I found that it didn't delivered the tone I wanted. I found the same with other Neo cabs and went back to ceramic magnets.

    My PR410HLF is anything but light on low end.

    That's a great price on that.

    I bet $5 that you'll be looking for an HPF before too long.

    Buy it.

    If the weight doesn’t scare you, it’s got a lot of bottom end. Not as well defined as it could be, but a lot of it. I doubt that you could do better for that price.
    And did I mention that they’re heavy?
