    i play rock, jazz, dixie, reggae, funk, metal, blues, and folk in various gigging bands. i have an ashdown 810 but its way too big. i have an 800 watt yorkville head which i absoultly love because of its versatility but because of the high wattage ill need an 8 ohm 410 cab. i was looking at eden, traynor, and swr. could anyone point me in the right direction?

    you need to order an Avatar 410 neo. Just got one and its the best cab i could ever own for such a great price. And great service. Check out avatarspeakers.com there only like $460 brand new at 1000 watts! dooooo it

    i use an avatar B410 with my GK head and love it.
     
  6. An Eden 410XLT is probably a good first choice followed by the Eden 410XST. Both come in 8ohms and kick really hard!

    Otherwise if you like the tone you get from your Ashdown cab, could you get something in an Ashdown 410 to give you the tone you've been enjoying?

    haha actually i hate my ashdown cab lol. it craps out at high volumes and there is no definition or clarity. i love my warwick bass and i am looking for a cab that compliments the warwick sound nicely. anyone know much about the new trace elliott stuff?

    Another vote for the Eden 4x10 XLT.
    Plus, a shameless plug for the Ampeg 4x10 HLF

    +1 more for Avatar. I have the 212 Neo and love it. If I were in the market for a 210 or 410, I'd go with the same brand.

    Don't let the price fool you, these are serious cabs. In fact, I'll say without hesitation that the construction of the cabinets themselves is nicer than what you'll find on most of the pricier competition.

    Plus, you get lots of color options! Screw black carpet, how about purple tolex?

    Warwick and Eden play very nice together.

    I'd go with a 410XLT/XST or even a 212XLT.

    I'd go for neos if you're worried about weight. A big 4x10 like an Eden XST is going to be as unwieldy as a lot of 8x10s.

    The Avatar cabs are damn fine.

    Personally, I would go to LDS or Dr. Bass though. not a lit more than Avatar, and a bit better. LDS would be a good pick as they excel at making very light cabs and have a short lead time.
