    Hi

    All the sealed cabs I've seen are somewhat pricey. I'm looking for a budget sealed cab with 10" speakers, maybe a 4x10, or even a 6x10. I'm in Europe if that helps.

    The Gallien Krueger SBX410 was a great sealed cab, with a killer price.
    Too bad it was discontinued about a year ago...
     
  4. Look for a used marshall VBC810. They go really cheap in comparison to ampeg 810s and sound nicer (IMO).

    Thats if you want something that big of course

    The two I mentioned are sealed! But I just looked at the website and the 414 is discontinued apparantly... the 810 is still in production and pretty cheap. 500 euros

    what broerevb said.

    Head over to Billfitzmaruice's website/forums read around, sing up ask questions. If you can work with tools this is for you.
    Im doing a couple right now haven't started due to school and no wood but i will be soon, i have the parts.
    If i have done everything correctly i should have a couple cabs that will beat Ampeg 8 by 10's. (Now do i have the amp to power theses beasts..no heh)
     
  11. Dont know how they 'beat' an 810, they'll sound different anyways :p

    Trust bro they'll beat those fridges. Take a look at some SPL charts on his site.

    Well even if they don't, i'd still enjoy having something different.
     
  13. Behringers aren't sealed but are very punchy and tight with very good deep bass

    No Behringer please.

    DIY is not an option, I don't have the minimun experience working with tools, it's not for me.

    Willem, does your MAG sound good? I was thinking in buying one, and later if I wanted a better tone switching speakers out.

    I could also ask someone to make me one costume made.
     
  15. Go to your local shop and try some...If you can afford a custom made then you wouldn't be asking what sounds good.

    When I mean custom made I mean by some tech or something, with some medium rated speakers and material, nothing top notch.

    Try Low Down Sound from Detroit: http://www.lowdownsound.com/

    They make custom order cabs and would probably ship to Portugal for the right price.
