I'm about to replace my beloved Ampeg SVT-410 HLF cabinet with either one or two 2x10 cabs(depending on how much I get from the HLF) and these two seem to have the wattage that I need for the price. I know this is a pretty involved decision to make just from a few facts, but here are a few major issues. I play mostly a 4 string, but occasionally I whip out my 5. My "sound" is mostly low mids. I like whatever cuts through good and has that gritty sound. I play a lot of punk and alternative rock. I don't want a cab that limits me to low mids. I'd like to have some lows(obiviously with the 2x10 things) but not a lot. If you need me to post any other things that will help making the decision I will.
