    Cabinets are probably the most underrated link on a musician's signal chain: we players obsess relentlessly about instruments, pedals and amplifiers, not realizing that without speakers all of these elements merely generate or process electric signals.

    But music is heard and felt, not measured. It is made of sound, and speakers are what transform electric signals into sound.

    The Darkglass sound is distinctive and unique. It is the foundation our reputation is built upon. We could not continue disrupting the bass guitar market without addressing the most essential part of the signal chain: speaker cabinets.

    Loaded with 10" custom made Eminence drivers and a proprietary crossover circuit designed to enhance distortion excited-harmonics in a unique, pleasant way, our 210 and 410 cabinets are our answer to a market in dire need of a new player to shake things up.

  3. These cabs look like what the T-1000 would play.

    If Skynet was a band...

    Asked myself the same question and found the answer: 38 kg / 84 lbs
    DG410C

    I thought they would use neo drivers instead of ceramic, as Darkglass is famous for making lightweight stuff

    If I wasn't settled on my 410SVT I'd be all over this. $1,400 vs. $400 (got the SVT used and refurbished it a bit) is too big a jump. I love Darkglass stuff, though, and it looks so sweet.

    That 2X10 weighs about 51 pounds. Not as light as I would have hoped.

    As noted in the description: "Cabinet material: Cabinet material"

    From the rare "cabinet material" trees of coastal Finland (Betula armarium). The cool, salty air from the Baltic makes dense timbers. This surely adds to the weight.

    Do they offer other sized speakers, or are 10's the only option?

    Why is the 4x10 deeper in dimensions (+9cm!) than the 2x10 ? :bookworm: Is it a typo ? (34 / 43 cm)
